Old Country Roses, Bubble Wrap and Thrifting Finds!!

Good Evening Bloggers.
I did get to do some yard saleing and thrifting this weekend. My hubby was not to pleased about it , after all we are moving and trying get rid of stuff. But he got over it and told me what I got was really nice.
I thought I would share my Old Country Rose utensils that go with my China set. I just love the Old Country Rose pattern. My daughter has already instructed me to will it to her when I die. LOL
I have been really busy with the move, but we finally with an exception of a few odds and ends we are packed!! I am really feeling it, with working and then coming home and packing in the evenings. These old bones can hardly take it!! LOL
I hope every one is had a good week and hope the week goes even better for you!!

This is my Old Country Roses Dinnerware set by Royal Albert. I also have a whole set of the china!! I have a few accessories but not many. I am going to start collecting those once we get moved!! I had bought the china when it was on sale. I came home from work one day and my hubby had a package for me. It was the utensils!! I did not even ask for them!

I love it because the utensils are gold!!

Who would of thunk it!! Pink bubble wrap!! I found it at Walmart!!

This scrapbook/photo album was a yard sale find for a 1.00. It was never used. I may have posted this before. I hope not. I found it several months ago. I ran across it when I was packing for the move.

Of course I could not pass up this little rose teacup and saucer. 1.91 at Good Will.

I found this Little BOY figurine at Goodwill for a 1.91. He matches a collection of blue and white figurines I already have. I have posted the pictures of those in earlier post.

I love the Roses on this address book. It was another Goodwill find!! I love the Romantic Shabby Chic looking address books, journals etc!! 1.91.

This pillow sham was a Good Will find!! I love the roses in it.

This is an FTLD vase. I like it , it matches my decor in my living room. It was only a dollar!!

I will proably give this to my daughter. It was 50 cents at yard sale. It is brand new,never out of the package!! It looks like something my daughter might like.
