For years, I've been wanting the Johnson Bros. Friendly Village china. I've searched online, everywhere! Low and behold in my travels today, I came across a set of 8 plates. I can build around it. I would love to have the complete set but this will do for now. Score! My life is complete. $32.00 - not too shabby. A very GOOD shopping day for moi.

This will be great for our cabin as a utensil holder!

I've wanted one of these jars for months! Kept meaning to go get a new one and there it was whispering to me at Goodwill!
Below, I have a cute idea for this bulletin board at our cabin too.

So, today I headed out early to find a simple basket with a lid. I hit all of the local thrift stores. To my dismay, I couldn't find one basket to my liking. However.... I did happen to find some great items not on my list! Check them out! I must tell you the whole lot cost me $7.80!!!!
Thanks for visiting!


  1. Oh my gosh - what a great deal!!! Becca and I both have the Friendly Village and share on the holidays. If ever you need a bunch for big parties, let us know! We share!!

  2. We're good sharers.... and we have accessory pieces.

  3. Thanks guys! Ooooo....accessory pieces too? I'm drooling!

  4. Hi I love the Friendly Village Christmas dishes too. I found a great deal a few years ago at Belk department store. After Christmas I got a huge set for 75% off. If you have a Belk in your area you might watch. Dillards also carries them too.
