But mine and my husband's anniversary was coming up and I wanted him to order me something I wouldn't normally buy for myself, but was still thrifty enough that we'd still have all our pennies and dimes to spend on his week-long vacation, which would hopefully include trips to antique stores we'd never been to before.
So these Re-Ment figures suited me just perfectly. Here's the box:
and the contents:
(had to include the little foldout booklet!)
And here they are, stacked up sweetly. So cute! And really well done for such tiny things.
And here they are, worked in with my Fire King and the actual-sized Hazel Atlas Ripple.
The best scale shots I managed to get out of my wildly out of date camera (that also hates my dark house).
I am attempting to refrain from trying to buy a whole stack of these dishes to match my hoard stack of their real life counterparts. They are just so cute and precious.
There are other odds and ends in these sets that I want too. Mostly the pieces that resemble Pyrex bowls and Fire King mugs. I don't know if that will happen anytime soon, but there's always Christmas :-)
As for our actual anniversary, we had a good time going outside our normal areas to shop. Found some incredibly expensive stores, expensive furniture and of course, expensive Pyrex. I bought a few pieces that complete (or nearly-so) patterns for me, so I'll get around to posting them in another post.
Hope you're finding thrifty treats and treasures!
