Three Tiers Of Yummi-ness and Other Goodwill Finds

Or trays on a stick as my fifteen year old son called it.

I found this three tiered server at Goodwill for four dollars.

Not too pretty.

But of course, white paint fixes everything.

My parents were arriving from out of town, so dessert and coffee were in order.  I thought it would be fun to show off my new tablecloth, too.  It was from the antique mall.  Nine dollars -  not bad.  I just can't pass up roses.

I filled my new treasure with treats.

Sugar cookies...

Mini cupcakes...

And chocolate.

I also found six of these cups and saucers at Goodwill - .50 each.

And these pretty plates for a dollar each.

Hmmm, I think I need a snack.
