pink candy dishes


During Tyler's birthday party on Saturday... while 25 boys were in the middle of an 8 hour Texas Holdem Tournament... Miranda and I snuck out to Goodwill's half off sale! I found these two pink pedestal candy dishes for 99 cents each! Love em! I am using my 'too pretty to use' crocheted apron I got for a dollar, as a center piece doily. Too cute!
But I can't believe I almost ate that whole dish of almond M&Ms! They were suppose to be for decoration... like maybe for a few weeks... is that too much to ask!! Well, back to the store for more!

What a great buy! They are beautiful and the apron is awesome! It is so frilly. I keep having Easter candy jump out of candy dishes into my mouth. I sure hope the Easter Bunny will refill my stash>

I am almost licking the screen here :-)

Those will look nice next to your aqua collection as well. I realize that my chocolate stash is getting low from Valentine's Day...good thing Easter is just around the corner!! I like the way the "Chocolate" Holidays are spaced so nicely apart... Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, (o.k. my birthday in July), Halloween, then Christmas...!

Gotta love Goodwill! Ours quit having half-price days a few months ago...... Oh well, still great deals to be found!
(I LOVE M&Ms :)

Adorable apron! I can tell you they would not last 2 weeks at my house!
You are the luckiest person I know when it comes to thrifting! I wish you lived near me so I could tag along and find those good buys!

You totally deserve every one of those and plenty more. I had a few handfuls of treats when my boys moved out.

I hope the adjustment will come very quickly.
The little candy dishes are very sweet. Good shopping.

You are right! The apron is too pretty to use and I love it as the centerpiece with the pink dishes as the. We are having to get creative with my doily collection here as well!

Love the dishes and that apron! Definitely too cute to use--can you imagine spilling something on that beauty? eek! I have a yellow and white crocheted one that's similar but I love the bright variegated thread on yours!

Cute dishes, but I love the crocheted piece underneath!! and what a steal.

Nancy said...

As always, you found some great "stuff". I have a hard time not eating the candy too.

Amy said...

Simply gorgeous! I'd put them on the table too :-)

Almond M&M's have no calories; I think it's in the Bible somewhere.

BTW, I don't think my blog link works when I post a comment here...you should stop by at 360.yahoo.com/skerrib
