I See Yellow

SCORE ... Last week Johnnie-Girl and I frequented a number of thrift stores in a neighbouring town. A few days prior she landed a summer job at Focus on the Family and consequently needed a few additions to her wardrobe. She is so excited that the dress requirement is professional ... such a dramatic and welcoming change from the grunge dress code worn at her last job which was at a dog boarding kennel ... but I digress ...

Take a look at the great find I purchased that day ...

I almost over looked this treasure ... a dusty box of yellow melamine platters and a few dishes. Used, but only gently. I couldn't imagine how anyone could make use of so many platters?

Then I thought outside the box ... Platters can be dishes ... Duh
Perfect for picnics or kids or camping or casual Saturdays

36 large platters for main course
31 medium platters for smaller appetites
19 small platters for desserts
8 regular sized round plates for serving
and 1 small plate just for good measure

I am thrilled with this find that only put me back $10
