Last week I got another dollar deal at the thrift store. The bill covered these four items:

This vintage milk glass diamond-shaped footed dish is decorated with daisies and diamond cuts. At 3 ¼" high x 4 ½" wide x 6 ½" long, it is a charming candy dish. It proved difficult to photograph with flash.

The soft blue green plate is a vintage annual made in France. Dated 1971 on the front, the reverse side reads, "Faience de St. Amand/ France/ Edition Limitee." It is 9 ¾" in diameter and is part of a "Wildlife Series" with embossed surfaces depicting deer, birds, fruit, branches and and trees. Faience is tin-glazed pottery, also known as majolica.

This vintage off-white ceramic planter is stamped on the bottom "CP-778/ USA". I like the art deco styling on this piece.

The simple white Corelle plate has a small chip on the underside of the rim. I plan to use it for meal preparation.

The simple tripod candle stand comes in handy to use with other black iron or wire pieces I have. The pink candle was free.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will return soon. I love reading your comments.

Yes, Leigh, the total for the five items was one dollar, so they each cost 20 cents each!

I like the deco footed planter. I've got several of those around my house (mine are green though) and I use them for scrubbies for dishes, stamps, and another holds pens. They are quite useful!!
