I couldn't believe it when I saw the box sitting there full of these gorgeous pansy chintz dishes!!!
They are so beautiful!
I have been very interested in "tablescapes" lately with creating beautiful table settings for special meals and have been looking for some new affordable pretty dishes, so these are perfect!!!
I normally wouldn't pick purple dishes, as my home is full of reds and greens, but I decided that they are just too lovely to pass by and I am so happy that I bought them!
I found the pattern on the website called Replacements.com and the cup & saucer sets are 17.99 each, the soup bowls are 15.99 each, the salad plates are 9.99 each and the dinner plates are 14.99 each. Wow! I think I've found a real treasure here!
That totals up to $58.96 for one place setting and my box has four place settings, so if you do the math, that would be $235.84 for the whole set. Can you guess how much I paid for the whole box???
Drum roll please.....da..da..da..da...da..da
I paid $5.00 for the whole set! That's right, only five bucks!!!! That's a savings of $230.84! Wow, I'd say I got a deal!!!! Thank you Lord for this wonderful blessing!
Now, it will be fun to be on the look out for coordinating goblets, napkins and a tablecloth. Then the fun part, inviting some dear friends over and having a special luncheon!
