Boy, I've been doing a lot of thrifting this past month, but you don't hear me complaining! Here is a cake dish or platter in the Memory Lane pattern, which I collect. These are my everyday dishes.

I was thrilled to find, yet, another little suitcase in a pretty blue and pale pink plaid!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I did with one of my brothers and one of my sisters coming over. My 22-yr-old daughter wanted to go to Kohl's (department store) for Black Friday to get a Nintendo 3DS bundle that was on sale for $150, which was $30 cheaper than the competitors. So I figured "why not"! We headed out at midnight to wait in a cold, 27F/-3C, line for an hour before entering the store. But, we took turns waiting in the car!

We were about 20th in line (of at least 100) so were able to go directly to the item, then to the register, and were out in less than two minutes! Only drawback was, after getting to bed at almost 2:00 a.m. I had to get up at 7:30 to go pick up Mister from work. I got to snooze off and on during the day, though!

Yesterday I took down my Thanksgiving decorations and started to bring my Christmas items out. The wreaths are hung on the windows and the "Welcome" sign is on the door! Let the fun begin!

Good find n the suitcase. Never seen on like that. You were brave doing the shopping. I don't think anyone could convince me to do that, hah.
