Estate Sale Finds: Crazy Daisies Corelle and Vintage Wrapping


The sales weren't the best this weekend and we only haunted two, but remarkably came away with something I've wanted for a while...an entire service of Crazy Daisies Corelle in yygreen. There are even two platters and three little servers. We had these when I was a little girl and my mom said she used them for so long that she was sick of them. And she also said they will never break. Haha! And then at another, I found four NOS packages of Christmas wrapping. I opened one package and the more I saw the more I loved. See? I think the last sheet is my favorite. I just hope I can handle cutting it. Ugh.

  1. I actually had a Corelle plate break once, I wrote to the company and they sent me a replacement! Nice finds...

    1. Haha! That's funny that they replaced it...I wonder if my mom ever tried to do that, even though she was sick of them. :)

  3. Awesome finds! I dated a guy in college whose Mom LOVED daisy kitchen things and had oringially done her kitchen in the 70s. I believe she had the same Corelle dishes. And fabu wallpaper in the breakfast nook. And "good china" with a daisy pattern. And some lovely avocado green glasses that coordinated with it all. I loved that woman and her kitchen. :)

Thanks for adding feathers to my nest! Have a wonderful day!

How Feed the Birdies flew in....

Once upon a time two little boys ate Happy Meals in the middle seat of a Ford minivan. Not quite willing to eat the last few fries, they launched them out the door screaming, "feed the birdies!!" And so my journal of a road through motherhood and wifedom, with a little bit of crafting on the side...where everybirdy gets a french fry. And we're all happy about it.
