Hey Ya'll! I finally found a great buy to share....I keep reading all these blogs that have these amazing posts about "Great Tag Sales" or "Thrifty Treasures" or "Amazing Goodwill finds"....I don't know about you...but I read these blogs and just have a "FIT." BIG SMILE!
I was at Marshall's for no good reason...just looking around and found this amazing plate. I love the cabbage pattern and can't remember the name, now that I think of it!

LOOK! OH MY GOSH! I was thrilled. Only 3.00 buckaroos! It has a chip on it, on the back...who cares? I don't....and I am thrilled!

Hubby wanted to know why I wanted a plate that looked like a cabbage leaf.....Hello! It's cute! I informed him some women had entire dish collections based on this cabbage design. Mr. Farmer of course rolled his eyes at me. Oh my.

That is a great find Debbie!
It is even better than a TS or GW find!
Men just don't get the idea of have things just to decorate with...sometimes I think they would be happy in just a house with white walls, a tv, a fridge, and a reclining chair! LOL
But they wouldn't feel comfy cozy...would they?
Love your header pic!
Have a great week!

I love Marshalls! That plate is so darling...I can understand why you wanted it...the price was pretty good, too. Men just never understand...LOL.

I love your cabbage plate! I would have bought that in a New York minute.

I love the cabbage dishes at Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Now if you visit them every week, you will have a collection in no time!!

Men!! I am surprised they haven't rubbed the skin off their knuckles completely from them dragging on the ground!! ;-)

Love it and want it for myself!!! I only have a few, but am always on the lookout for these types of pieces.

LOL! I can just see him rolling his eyes! That's a great find! TJ Maxx and Homegoods really have some great clearance things!
