Lucky Day

Every once in awhile each one of us has a lucky day and today was my day!  I had a few minutes before a meeting so I ran into a local thrift store that I had not been to in a while.  I have a normal route that I take through the store and the dishes and glassware are near the end.  I was thrilled beyond belief to find this set of Currier and Ives dishes and salad plates!  You see growing up my Grandma Mursch and Great Aunt Marion both had a set of these dishes.  After my Aunt passed away I was given her set, but it is quickly dimishing as the dishes chip and crack from 60+ years of use.  I have so many happy memories of family gatherings for every occasion you could imagine that surround these plates!  So I grabbed them up before anybody else could and was able to walk out of the store with 10 dinner plates and 4 salad plates for a mere $7.30!  What??!!  I am one happy girl today!!!
