Thrifty Turns to Gold

Not really gold per se, more like bone china.






M'kay, I was at a favorite thrift store looking for supplies to transform and found two somewhat cute but really not my style, Coalport English bone china cottages.
Very inexpensive. In fact so cheap that I bought them because they were...well...so cheap!







I have passed these up before at Goodwill because they were asking too much. (In my humbly uninformed and VERY cheap estimation.)
So, I looked them up on ebay.
WT...?
Then on Replacements.
Really?
Ummm...they are in my china cabinet now.

Yours in thrifty surprises, P.
