Meet Irene

I have really been on the hunt lately and have been lucky enough to find a few things I love and will enjoy.
First I was stopped at a thrift store downtown on my lunch break and walked right up to these beautiful blue and white plates with the name Irene on them .Sort of a flow blue plates where the deep blue runs over into the whites of the plates.

                                                                                     
 These are my kind of plates I just love the flower design around and the lightly gold trimmed edges.and the sways of beautiful blue
 The best thing about the find they were $1.00 each
Here is her name Irene with her crown 


I am thinking of bringing a small table up to my office so I can set a little table and leave it set at all times, sort of like playing house LOL 

I have a couple other things to show next

  3. Dear Janice:
    Those Irene plates are so lovely. They were just waiting for you to come love them. The hunt and find has happened and wasn't that fun except that it makes you want to go hunt and find again. Must be some disease named the "Hunt and Find" disease! So glad you shared.

  20. Good Afternoon Janice, It is lovely to meet Irene.... she is beautiful. I adore blue and white plates and Irene is certainly a beauty and at such a cheap price.... that is what makes it even more exciting.
    We call thrift stores, charity shops over here in England and like you, I like nothing more than finding a fabulous bargain.
    I will keep my eyes open for my very own set of Irene plates.
    Best Wishes

  21. Beautiful! I love my blue and white dishes, and don't think I could ever have enough! I strongly recommend that you DO bring a table to your office and set it up. I do this at work, and it is so soothing to look at beautiful china while working.

  22. OMG! It's gorgeous and $1 each, so lucky you! I love blue and white dishes and I just decorated some vignettes with mostly blue and actually I didn't plan, so it means I have plenty of.
    What a great idea to do it at work, you must try it!
    Hugs,
    FABBY

  24. Be still my heart. Those plates are spectacular. They are my kind of plates too but I would never find them for such a steal. I can't believe you only paid $1.00. How lucky. Enjoy them. Incredible find.

  26. Being a blue and white fan I am envious of your lovely Irene plates. I would have scooped them up too. What a fun idea to set up a table in your office (a little slice of home). Thank you for sharing your fantastic find with us at Vintage Charm!
