I have a weakness for church rummage sales, but after finding things like these "milk glass" blue dinner plates, can you blame me? The minute I saw them, I knew that they would be perfect to highlight my antique Chelsea dishes. I was able to get a set of four and they are on my kitchen table, looking just like the photo, as we speak.
I also found an electric warming tray for entertaining (my secret to a successful brunch is keeping the breakfast strata and french toast casserole hot!) for $3. I think I am going to take this one up to the cottage to use for all of our Fourth of July festivities.
If the mood strikes, see if you can find a church rummage sale in your area. You never know what treasures you'll find, and with DIY fever going around, you can breathe new life into many items with just a coat of paint. My last "find" was a large round basket with handles for $1. I know will look brand new with a shot of spray paint. I'm just not sure what color to paint it or where I will put it, but there's time!
