Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Rooster Dishes

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday

If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

A few weeks ago, I stopped in at my new (to me) favorite thrift store. I was walking around looking at all the goodies and soon spotted six of these dinner plates. No markings, but they are really cute and I had to have them. They were 25 cents a piece, so how could I leave them? These green country rooster, weather vein inspired plates are adorable. 


That particular day, this was all I found,  just the six plates. This happens so many times, I find bits and pieces and have to decide if I like them enough to purchase them or leave them for someone else to discover.

About a week in a half later I stopped again to see if there were any treasures I might need.....


I could hardly believe it....the small saucers and bowls that matched my plates. Six of each. Oh, I could not get them in the cart fast enough. I never would have thought I'd happen on these again. I wondered how long they had sat there waiting on me to find them! A week? A day? A few minutes?


I never did find the cups, but that is fine by me. The small plates are more like dessert plates as are the small bowls. They look like a rooster weather vane to me....very cute. I made the mistake to try and research this design..big mistake...found more pieces and a few other things I am really trying to not purchase. After all, how many plates do I need? There are only two people who live here now!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!

  3. Love the story behind your treasured plates. I have seen that pattern before. I like the simplicity of them and the that they are only 2 colors...will coordinate with lots of different solids. Good luck on finding the cups. Thanx for sharing. Tiffany

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
