Inspiration: One King's Lane

I was checking out the website, One King's Lane, and found these gorgeous blue and white plates for sale: a set of 6, for $145.  I am kind of quietly collecting this style for my back patio, but the price tag is a little steep.  I have been paying around $2 or $4 per plate.

So I was happy, but not too surprised when I found the same plates at our local antique store for a fraction of the price.
Look how many they have!
See?  Upside down, yes, but the same.  It pays to shop around, people!

 These lamps have nothing to do with the plates, above, in the sense that sadly, I have not found their doppelgangers hanging around any thrift or antique stores.  Unfortunately.  But they are gorgeous and deserve to be showcased.  And they're such a deal at only $1,500!

Look how pretty these are! Only $1,545.00!
So, remember, find your inspiration piece, but if it is too pricey, shop around!  Don't forget places like Marshall's, T.J. Maxx, thrift stores, and antique stores; you'd be amazed at what you can find.
Happy hunting!
