Inevitable Sacrifices...

So I guess now, I'm hooked on Sur La Table (dot com) and Bordallo dinnerware because I traded over $60 of my Marshall's and Kroger finds to justify getting 8 Bordallo Pinheiro Rooster & Hen Majolica salad plates in green!

Beautiful isn't it? But the real point of this post is... "Are they worth the trade?" YOU BET!

Why? Because I got them for 65% ooofff! Or... $2.99 each from the original $8.49 tag online! (What happened to the difference? DH made sure that I put it away back in that dark, hidden abyss we call our Savings Account (scary lol!!! Oooooohhhh...)
Plus, you can't find them anywhere but Sur La Table! And I looked on Ebay, Amazon and Overstock for like an hour! Each! I also saw the dinner plates that go with it, bea-u-tiful, but "Brain" says, "If it hits 75% off, then you can start THINKING about it."

So I guess I'll wait then... (*sob*) (You see, if "Brain" says no, "Mouth" follows with a loud NO and "Eyes" and "Hands" stay put. Which is a real dilemma because "Hands" is in charge of reaching into my wallet, so if "Hands" don't want to listen to me by having "Eyes" watch him like a hawk, I can't buy it! See how simple that arrangement is?)

Buh-bye for now to you my precious darlings! But I'll visit you soon enough... And once I can afford you all, I'll get you home as soon as I can!

Now if I only I can find good white scalloped dinner plates, I'll be ready for Eas-----ter! Which reminds me... I need to go back to Marshall's and snatch up that beautiful Rabbit egg platter in the same shade and it's 45% off!
I know I have money for that- the couch was generous today! :-)

(Don't worry, "Brain" is always watching me...)

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
