Next in the lineup is a fabulous, big, solid brass tray! It was hanging on the wall above the fireplace at the estate sale, and immediately both my mom and I were drawn to it. $15! It's large enough that I can see it becoming a table top for a patio table this summer. Until then, it will reside on my coffee table and house my issues of Portland Monthly and Sunset Magazine. Score!
Last, but certainly not least, I came home with a super cute set of vintage Noritake Progression China in the Palos Verde design for a measly $25! It's missing some pieces (bowls), but I am in love with the green and gold pattern! And I think it looks perfect with my dining room chairs, AND on my big brass tray!
Fun, don't you think? I really didn't need more dishes, but my mom (who has 7 different sets) pointed out that variety is the spice of life! And for $25 we couldn't say no. All in all, a successful weekend. Now to figure out where to store my new dishes... :)
