SEA MIST GREEN

Here it is!  My 200th post! 
 (Sorry it is later then I had planned to post 
but I had internet issues)


The Giveaway for my 200th post is one of the most popular in Blogland...yes my wonderful friends at CSN have offered one of my readers a $50 gift card...as you know CSN has the most wonderful on-line stores and offers anything you could want from platform beds to ice cream makers!
I am in love with this platform bed
So Southern Plantation! 
Sigh...maybe one of these days 
I will have a bedroom like this!


So back to my post!

This past weekend I stopped at a yard sale
in my neighborhood
I found some great items and today I'm showing 
you the FIRST thing my eyes locked on
Oh Yeah! Fiesta Disc Pitchers
In TWO sizes
I casually walk over and pick up the 
larger one
Nice, looks good, no chips or cracks
Marked on the bottom
So I say how much for both??
Here is the smaller one also in
perfect condition
Small Disc Juice pitcher


She says....I can let you have both for...wait for it.....


$5.oo

I'll take them!! 

Now they aren't OLD Fiesta but since I
have a few pieces of this color already I am more 
then thrilled to find these pitchers 
Sea Mist Green was produced by
Fiesta/Homer Laughlin
from 1989 through 2005
It is a retired color
I love this makers mark 
It has the small letters spelling 'fiesta'
This was an older mark but has been used
on Disc pitchers made after 1986 also.

I am linking up with ONE of my favorite parties
With Troy at I Refuse to Recede 




Now the details of the giveaway!
Entry #1 - Click on the CSN link and then come back and leave me a comment telling me what you would love to get with your CSN gift card.

So Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!


Always,
Linda

random number never picks this low, but i don't wanna forget to comment.

so since i am redoing the bedroom, i am thinking either a throw pillow or duvet cover? so much to choose from, of course.

Jeanette said...

Yes I am a follower, congratulations on 200!

Jeanette said...

I am looking for a doggie door for my babies and the ones they have are just too cute. I have never seen any so cute.

A Hopeful Heart said...

Yes, I am a follower. And I simply MUST say this about blogging and the relationships we can make through blogging.

I began blogging in 2006, but I had to take a long hiatus in 2009 and early 2010 and have only recently begun blogging again. I developed some wonderful friendships from being online. Two of the gals, who live in Florida, my old stompin' grounds,knew how much my old magnolia tree meant to me. Leaving it was one of the hardest things about leaving my Florida house. So, they cooked up a scheme to find out where my old house was and then they arranged to take a photo of my old magnolia tree (to show me it was still there and hadn't been cut down by the new homeowners) and post it for me on their blogs. (Both of these gals live at least an hour from my old house...and from each other...but their love and friendship for me caused them to go the extra mile!!)

AND...my daughter is flying home even as we speak, after spending 3 weeks with friends in PA. She met these girls through blogging, and they have become like a second family to her. (Tears are flowing right now, as she just said goodbye and headed through security.) Earlier this summer (late May/early June), three dear young ladies, also met by my daughter through blogging, spent 12 days visiting at our house.

So, I'm right there with ya on saying that this great big blog world can provide wonderful friendships.

Sorry for the rambling comment.

Love,
Patti

A Hopeful Heart said...

Okay, for my second comment. I would probably buy dishes or a beautiful standing mirror.

And in response to your post...I LOVE the color of the pitchers you got. As we have discussed, green is up there with pink as my favorite of colors.

And quite the deal you got!! Lucky you!!

I went thrifting yesterday and came away with a Battenburg lace pillow case for 49 cents!!

Have a great day!!

Hugs,
Patti

Tina said...

Hi Linda, I've been following for a while now. That fiesta ware is a great color. Not sure I've seen that one before. Now to check out CSN!

Tina said...

Once I saw they had Le Crueset cookware, I went no further. I'd use the $50 towards a dutch oven.

sissie said...

Hi Linda,
I'd like one of those pink cupcake aprons!
So cute.
They have so many wonderful things to choose from and I might be doing a giveaway myself.

hugs

Mimi said...

You did good, acting nonchalantly...I would have knocked things over getting to those pitchers, and then to get them for almost nothing...you must have been living right, Linda!

Linda,
Congratulations on posting 200 great and interesting pieces of your life. I am right there with you~ I am celebrating my 200 post with a giveaway too!

You are so generous to be giving away a $50.00 CSN gift card! They have everything a person could ever want! Don't enter me in your drawing, although I would love to win. I have won 2 giveaways lately so I think it is only fair to spread the winnings around!

I am so surprised I am not a follower! So I am taking care of that too.
Again, wonderful blog! Congratulations... keep your fabulous posts coming!
Yvonne

Rose said...

Ninny said...

Oh my good gravy! Both pitchers for 5 bucks?!!! You put a spell on her didn't you?!! LOL...what a great buy. They're beautiful. I'm a follower, btw. Enjoy your blog very much!

Liz (aka Ninny)

Ninny said...

I'm feeling Christmasy...if I won the giveaway, I'd buy a Christmas wreath for my front door. I know they're easy to make, but not for me. A prelit wreath would be so nice.

Yvonne said...

Oh I love the La Crueset cookware, and I really need some new pieces. Love the Fiesta Ware too, especially in the green color.

Yvonne said...

I have been a follower for some time and love your posts. Mostly lurk but still love your posts.

mrs. c said...

I am a follower, and am pea green with envy over those darling Fiesta Ware pitchers...I had paint mixed to match all the colors of Fiesta Wear plates that we have at our laek house so I could paint each chair a different color and I have that color!!!

mrs. c said...

I looked at CSN and I would get school supplies for my pre-k classroom, I know that sounds boring but they have some great staplers, markers, and school furniture. I just couldn't decide which of those great things I would buy!

Annesphamily said...

Hi Linda I follow you! You know I will follow you everywhere cause you are so technically smart!

Annesphamily said...

I would put that gift card to good use. I would buy the super cool ceiling fan that they that is brushed nickle ! With temps at 98 today I need more cooling power! Hugs Anne

Annesphamily said...

Happy 200 posts! I missed my 300th. I am at 308 I think! LOL!

Pondside said...

I'm still following - always pop in here for your great ideas and great finds!

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

Finally back after clicking the link to csn. A person can get lost over there for days...
I would use it toward a mosquito catcher for my patio. They're pricey, but we need something to make it bearable outside in the evening!

Joyce said...

$5..are you kidding me? I would have driven home with those two pitchers in my car talking to myself and smiling like a total lunatic as I tore out of that gals place who was selling them. I have a pink one and I use it all the time. I am so in love with the turquoise color you just purchased. My SIL collects them and has them in amazing colors. There is a lady who blogs who collects HL pieces and her tablescapes are amazing. Congrats on your 200th post. Now the contest answer..I would love any of the baking pans like Le Crueset in blue.
