Mighty Fine Pine

Looky here!  Ain't they ca-ute?!  I was doing some post Xmas clearance shopping at Boscov's and discovered a random set of dishes in with the cards, ornaments, and wreaths.  No price on them.  Whatever, i'll lug them around because i like to make things hard for myself.  Get them to the register and this set of 12 dishes rings up at 4.99.  Say what? It made paying the same price for a package of greeting cards seem ridiculously overpriced.





I wish the colors were as subdued as the box makes you think (that's why i bought them-serves me right for not prying a dish out in store) but they're still super cute and seasonal.  As i write this, i remember the pinecone napkin rings purchased this afternoon from Bed, Bath, and Beyond's clearance section.  I smell a tablescape coming on!  And it smells mighty pine! Also, someone needs to stop shopping...

Oh how I love pine cone dishes. You found some good ones. Can't wait to see your next tablescape with your almost forgotten napkin rings from BB&B! Sounds like something I would do. I buy so many treasures, I almost forget what I have! That's really bad ~~~

Oh My! Those are adorable!!
Such a bargain... I would have snapped those up immediately. Love, Love "woodsy" type things. They will certainly make a cute table setting.

Those are A-dorable! Normally I'm not a huge fan of holiday dinnerware, but I would snatch those up in a heartbeat!

When you get something for so cheap, it doesn't count as shopping, it's stealing (but no jail time)!

Donnie said...

Looks like you got a real sale there. They should make a beautiful tablescape.

Barbara said...

What a find! I can't believe it was such a bargain! Lucky you! My mom has some pretty pine plates that I would love to borrow some time. You reminded me of them. Happy New Year!

Not only were those a bargain but they're beautiful. The neat thing is that they're not Christmasy. They are perfect for winter! Can't wait to see the tablescape.

4.99?? What a deal. They would make a beautiful table scape. Perhaps some sort of pinecone centerpiece? :-)

I always have to kind of giggle whenever I see one of us (tablescapers) use the word 'need.' I passed need years ago. Now 'need to stop shopping...' yeah, right! Thank you for sharing your precious pinecone dishes. I look forward to seeing your design. Cherry Kay
