Well, you can all just hate me now and get it over with because today at auction I found and bought a 52 piece set of Franciscan Starburst china! WEEEEEEHEEEEEEEEE!!!
Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, that is a picture of Franciscan Starburst china. But that was all that was mentioned in the auction listing. Now, you must understand I have china pattern pieces out the wazoo and really don't need anymore that makes me waste my time trying to collect a full set. Some of you know what I mean. I'm trying to stick to buying only complete sets of things. Like most Mid Century lovers out there, I lust after this Franciscan china pattern so, I thought I would go take my chances and have a look see...ya just never know???
I gave myself a budget of $100 bucks and got this set and all of these metal plant stands for around $90! All I wanted was that cool black metal magazine rack but had to buy the other 3 metal stands to get it...I hate when they do that!
I've been having some serious good auction luck lately?? The universe must have decided to be kind to me after my most recent broken heart incident. Perhaps that is how it works?? Broken heart = good auction luck! Something weird did happen to me at auction though, some man ran over to help me carry out the stands to my car...which was very nice of him...but then he said he really wanted to meet me and then slipped me his number. This freaked me out a lot because this is how I met the last fella who broke my heart. The guy seemed very nice so I took his little note thanked him and said it was nice to meet him. I am in no way, shape, or form ready to date again. Plus, the guy was a little older then me or maybe a lot older? Any way, I give him credit for seeing something he wanted and having the guts to try and get it even though he might fail....that's more then what the last guy I dated had!
