In Search of Fine China on the Cheap


China found for me! Very Exciting!!

My friend and her husband went on a week end trip to the Grand Hotel in  Point Clear, Alabama.  From Baton Rouge to Point Clear, they stopped at many stores to look for discounted pieces of her Spode Christmas Tree china (and mine).
 
Belinda couldn't wait to see how it would all look on her table!
Every store they stopped at, I received a phone call.  "Jeannie, they have such and so, do you want any?"  my reply "Yes"!  And she knows my china patterns.  She was on the lookout for thrifty pieces that I might need. 

So, she bought me more Christmas Tree Plates! 
And they stopped at the same stores on the way home too.  Just in case more stock was put out!!
What a great husband!

Belinda gave me her favorite sewing spot.
After we played with the china, we sat down and sewed!  What a nice morning.
