Last night I had a girls' night out with my sister-in-law. It was a lovely time away from the evening chaos with the kids and, while they enjoyed building and playing with Daddy, I got to eat food that I did not prepare and go thrifting. I was very excited to find a couple of big bins of vintage patterns at my local SA. In all the times I have frequented their establishment, I have never seen patterns there. These two gems were 39 cents apiece. Great classic little girls patterns in big enough sizes that I am hoping to actually have time to sew by the time they would be useful for Ellerie!
I love the little hooded Ts and dresses here.
Then I found these pretty dishes. Four small plates, Four wide bowls and one larger serving-type bowl. I didn't really have a reason in mind for buying them other than just thinking they were pretty and I know I don't have space for them, but I couldn't resist. I imagined myself sitting with a friend eating some decadent chocolate dessert from the plates, using the good silver, dabbing at my mouth with a beautiful cloth napkin. You know, something like that. But the boys wanted to use them RIGHT AWAY and I had enough trouble getting them to wait for the dishes to be washed.
I indulged them at lunch though and they got to use the fancy new plates and anyone who knows me knows that THIS is the farthest cry from what I would have EVER served on these plates!
