Brighten up your dishes for the holidays

Brighten up your dishes for the holidays

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and it is time to get those dishes out, cleaned up and ready for big day.

I have a beautiful set of Mikasa French Countryside dishes that my Mom gave me and I have had them for years. I found a bunch more at the Thrift Store several weeks ago to add to my collection. Someone had donated this great and expensive set of dishes probably because they had so many utensil marks on them. I was so excited because I knew I could fix that and make them look almost new again. I couldn't wait to get them home and fix them up.

 I saw this post a long time ago from my sister One good thing by Jillee who also had the same set. When I saw the dishes I remembered her post and headed to the store to purchase some Bar Keepers Friend. This stuff is AMAZING!! I can't believe I haven't had this in my home until now. 

There are so many great dishes sitting in the Thrift Store. Don't pass something up because it looks bad. The Mikasa French Countryside set is my absolute favorite and such beautiful dishes. I got them for .75 to $1.50 each. 

My new best friend.

It is so simple! Wet the dish and pour on some BKF and then wipe down. Start scrubbing, it takes a little work but comes out beautiful. I went back and forth, up and down and in circles. The result amazes me that I got these extra dishes for so cheap and they look brand new. Don't forget to do the bottoms too! 

I am obsessed with finding those amazing deals at the Thrift Store. This was a great find. Try checking out a Thrift Store in your area and see if you can find a treasure of your own.

  15. I was cured of HERPES with the use of natural herbs. I love herbs so much. Most times, injections and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured 8months ago, i suffered from Herpes for 2 years but with the help of Priest Babaka herbal medicine, I was cured within a few weeks of drinking the herbs He sent to me through courier delivery service. This same Priest also cured my Aunt from INFERTILITY, as soon as I heard she Been finding it difficult to CONCEIVE, i referred her to the Priest and she was cured after drinking his herbs. I have referred more than 15 persons and they were all cured from their various illness. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs, injections, surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. Priest Babaka is a Herbalist and a Spiritualist , I assure you of a cure if you drink his natural herbs and follow his Guidance. He has herbs that cures HIV, Herpes, Diabetics, Asthma, Hepatitis, etc. Contact Priest Babaka on email: or Facebook at priest.babaka
