Friday Funnies and a GREAT FIND!

Happy Friday, my blogging friends!  The week-end is upon us, so I’m joining in with Kim, our adorable Friday Funnies hostess, to bring you some laughter for a fun and family filled two days away from the work grind!  You can visit Amy by clicking on the button to the right.

I’m also sharing my latest thrift store finds with you!  These gorgeous depression glass plates were only $14 for the 5 of them….wooo-hoooo!  I bought the darling Thanksgiving glasses at the Dollar Tree…they go perfectly together. 

I finally have something in Autumn colors!

I put a paper towel  inside the glass to show you the writing, but it still isn’t very clear .  It says “FAMILY…Memories are made of this…smiles, laughter, hugs”, and “HOME…enjoy the little things…Home is where my heart is”.  They are sooo sweet!

  6. Oh Mary I needed a laugh, haha...I especially liked the grandpa one. lol I LOVE the dishes. Sooo pretty. And the glasses too are darling. You've given me a good idea. I am short 2 plates for one of my Thanksgiving tables, sooo I might pop (not that I move fast enough to pop anywhere) over to the antique shops in downtown. They have the cutest things sometimes at bargain prices. Oh, and I LOVE the napkin holder. Sooo pretty. Have a great week-end Mary, Hugs, Debbie

  7. OH my friend! This:“When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car. “ was laugh out loud funny. They were all funny but that one got me! Hee! Hee!
    Love your thrift store finds too. I love thrift stores.
    Happy FRiday and have a glorious weekend.

  8. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
    Blessings, andrea

  9. Your table set is gorgeous!!

  10. I like to laugh out loud. Thanks. ....We haven't visited Thrift Stores in quite sometime. We used to go quite often and Charlotte would find the kind of pretty things you have posted pictures of. Guess what I was looking for.

  11. Hi Mary....I needed a laugh and my husband and myself got a good laugh out of the one of dying in your sleep. Love your new finds!~Hugs, Patti

  12. I have bought so many of those glasses. First I got myself 4 for a tablescape, then I thought well, I need 6 for Thanksgiving dinner...then I thought I better have 8 in case one breaks. Then I thought, was a perfect gift...so I went back...and I can't say I am done yet!!

  13. Good evening Mary, I absolutely love those plates! They are just beautiful! I also love your glasses. What a pretty tablescape they make. I hope you have a great weekend ♥

  14. Happy Friday Mary.. Those plates and glasses are beautiful and just perfect for upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. What a lucky find for you. I hope you'll be able to find more pieces in the future to add to you new collection. Have a super awesome weekend!

  15. Hi Mary,

    I always enjoy my visit. Love your great "finds". Beautiful. Enjoyed your sharing.

    Have a beautiful weekend.

  16. Mary, love the dishes. Very sweet. And I love that funny joke about grandpa in the car! LOL! That punch line caught me off guard. That's the kind of joke I like.

  17. Happy anniversary! You are just one year ahead of us. I like the beautiful plates; very classy for your Thanksgiving table. The quotes are hilarious!

  18. Nice combination here, Mary. Your plates are Madrid amber depression glass.

  19. Oh, those are hysterical! Thanks ever so for merrying my heart! 8-]
    I heard the nobody gets out alive one in a Christian movie last night and said I need to remember that one.

    Great TS finds! I rarely find decent dinnerware arouond here. Those would definitely be a temptation.

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  20. Ooooh, I LOVE those plates! Great price too! I haven't seen those glasses at our Dollar Tree, they are very sweet!
