Goodwill Treasures for White Wednesday ~ Giveaway continues

Hello everyone ~ hope you are all trying to stay cool in the excessively hot weather that most of the country is in ~ I've been spending most of my days staying inside our home with the central air! It's suppose to be a bit less warmer tomorrow, in the mid 80's (as if that is any cooler), but we'll take it.

Today I had to run to the store to pick up a couple of things, and decided to stop at that town's Goodwill store, though at first I was tempted not to, but then decided, "why not", and I am so glad that I did, as I brought home the 3 white treasures that you see in the photo below.

First up is this sweet little gravy boat and plate ~ I have a couple of other pieces in this same pattern; a mug, covered sugar, and a medium and small pitcher.

Next is this cute 7 1/4" plate ~ sweet details around the rim. There's no makers mark on the back.

Now this is the BEST find of the day! This is a platter, marked on the back: England, W. H. GRINDLEY & CO. I don't know a lot about this company other than a quick google search to find that it was founded in 1880. And the price I paid for this platter? A mere one dollar !!

love these swirls on the sides....

and these cute little "dots" around the edge...

Below is a close-up photo of the makers mark...

My "Christmas in July" giveaway is still going on ~ you still have until July 23rd to get your entry (entries) in ~ Just click on the Giveaway button/link at the top of my sidebar to take you to that post ~ the winner will be chosen from one of the comments left on that post.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my Goodwill white treasures ~ be sure to stop by Kathleen's blog, FADED CHARM to see all the other wonderful & chic whites to be seen.


Until next time sweet friends !!

OK...you know I want that Gravy Boat, right? LOVE IT! I just sold a tea set that matches it in my booth. Bah! Wish I'd kept it!

Remember those blue rose drapes I showed a few days back I bought at Goodwill? Just sold last night for $305. :)

Goodwill ROCKS!

Beautiful white Wednesday treasures! Love white dishes/plates! I see you pre-ordered your copy of Casa Romantica August 2012. Order early and play it safe with this magazine! Giggle.

Hi Brenda, What great white finds. Love that gravy boat and all the details. I am so into the white dishes and vintage pieces too. There are a lot of wonderful finds out there in white when we really look. So glad you stopped at the Goodwill.
I know you are having awful heat there as our family tells us. And, I remember that humidity!!!!!
It's really hot here too but dry.
Your Christmas stocking is gorgeous. You are one talented lady.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment.
Have a great day.
XO Celestina Marie
