Simplicity…

garage sale dishes
Dropped a buck on these three dishes at a garage sale. Can’t believe how much I have used them in the short time I have had them. Besides using them for serving various snacks for guests…I have started using them for me…as a way to not over indulge on trail mix, chips, and candy.

Blogged for Homebody Holly’s Thrift Store Thursday.

When are you going to post about how you organize your stuff in the cottage - cupboards, closets, drawers? Seriously. It would be very interesting to see how you fit so many things into a comparatively small space!

I agree with PJ!

Those are adorable dishes and I love how you are using them for portion control. What a simple but very clever, idea.

I have small little bowls I use for snacks for myself. Like you said, it's a great way to limit how much is shoveled into the mouth! ;-)

You find such fantastic things. I love those. The little handles are adorable. So many great uses for those too.
