Then you kick yourself because you go back and they're gone! I've done that far too often :-)
These are very sweet. I love the images on the front of them.
Have a wonderful weekend...maybe you'll find some other treasures!
Blessings,
Marcia

I can't tell you how many times I have kicked myself for not buying something when I run across it. If I had a penny for every time I thought this...I would be a rich woman and could afford that beach house I want!

Wanda Metcalf said...

They are very cute. I don't know what your kitchen is like as far as would they fit. but they are very cute. I always see things like that and fall in love but they just wouldn't wouldn't work. If only we could change things up all the time like a doll house and keep what we aren't using in a shoe box like we use to.

Elizabeth said...

Many of times! Darn, Those are so darn cute!
Love your cute paper cupcake garland, very clever!
Have a wonderful day!
Elizabeth

Rose said...

Aww they are super cute! If I bought everything I wanted I would be super poor, so yes it always happens to me!
They would go perfectly in my future kitchen :)
p.s. Did you recieve your goodies from my giveaway yet?

O No those are gorgeous, ahhhh well there was a reason for you not buying them, may mean your find an even better set and then you will buy them ;-) Have a lovely weekend,dee x

A Vintage Chic said...

Oh, my goodness! If I saw those, they'd be mine so fast! Vintage kitchen is my favorite thing, Koralee...the kitschier, the better!

Wishing you an absolutely fabulous weekend, dear friend...and I hope you find a vintage treasure that sweeps you off your feet!

OMG! This happens to me all of the time. It goes both ways. I often wonder why I bought 'this' and why I didn't buy 'that'. There is the little silver heart dish that I didn't buy several years ago at an antique fair, the vintage set of little limoge dishes that I bought only two of and now I feel like somebody is walking around with the rest of my set. Geez....the list goes on and on. You are not alone on this one.

T's Daily Treasures said...

Yep! Around here if you don't snap something up it may be gone forever. Love the color of those canisters! Next time, don't hesitate! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

bellaboo said...

This has happened to me on countless occasions Koralee,..now I don't hesitate and buy when I see something even if I don't really have the space for it! Maybe there is something equally as lovely just waiting for you right now! :0)

Martina said...

Hmmm, you could still buy them ...They< are indeed, very pretty! But otherwise, they'll inspire you, anyway. Have a lovely and fun weekend dear friend!

yardage girl said...

Oh no - I know how you feel! I hope you find these again some day!

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

You and me, Koraleeee. How many times have we been on the same page?
These lovelies are as cute as a button, I would say, put on your running shoes and off you go!
Have a sweet Saturday, love you xxxx

Two Shades of Pink said...

These are perfectly lovely. I have done this too many times only to go back and find they are gone. I would at least try and if they are gone...comfort yourself in knowing that someone snatched them up that will love and appreciate them just like you would have!

Signe said...

Hihi, this happens to me all the time unfortunately! It never pays off to put things off I have found out :)
And I wish you a happy weekend!

Catherine said...

Been there ~ GAAAAK! One should never hesitate.... :(

Happy Saturday Koralee!
xo Catherine

Bela said...

Dear Koralee, I feel sorry to say you failed...I would have bought these beautiesssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!! But you will find some other beautiful stuff!!
Love!!!
Bela

Antje said...

Dear Koralee,
thank you for this post. It is very soothing to realize whatever happens to you, you are never alone, ;-). I know, it doesn´t make you feel better right now. Happy weekend

Vintage Home said...

Koralee...phone them and get them to hold them for you!..they are adorable!...I shall let Bob know you are on the lookout!...
Hope to see you on May 28th!

Madelief said...

Oh Koralee, they look really great. It almost happened to me today on the fleamarket, but I was wise enough to return and buy the rose cups and the teapot! You can still go back. If they are still there, they are there for you :-)!

Happy weekend & lieve groet,

Madelief

Sewn With Grace said...

This happens to me way to often. I start to rationalize that I don't "need" it and should save the money, etc... I'm still kicking myself over a pink plastic thimble that had a Bible verse around it. It was only $2.00 and I let it go. Feeling your pain today! :)

Love the Decor! said...

Oh they are soo cute too!!
I think my obsession would have me looking all over the internet to find them again if I were you : )))

tracynko-motile said...

They are a gorgeous shade of blue. Maybe there is something even more magic out there for you. Pop by and see my new dolly, she is wearing a super blue dress and might cheer you up.
Have a good weekend,
Tracy

Marilyn said...

Yes, that does happen to me too. Sometimes I go back, but it just isn't the same as that impulsive buy. On the other hand I have said, why did I sell that too.

Jen said...

Happens to me all.the.time! Those are absolutely lovely!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Sounds familiar, LOL!
I have to say, they are real beauties though!

Ruth Yoder said...

That happens to me a lot. and when i thought i bought these cute blocks with my baby's initials, and found they were not in my bag...i was soo sad. they were antique baby blocks. so perfect. i feel your pain.
And thanks for telling me about michaels and i didn't even think of the dollar store for the cupcake liners! I'm going today!Gracias!

Blondie's Journal said...

They really are cute! Maybe you will come across something like them again

XO,
Jane

The Garden Bell said...

I actually think they really really have your name all over them. I also think you are wanting the words to be in pink. But, the YELLOW is working here. The also would be adoreable with some daffs or tulips in them soon. Look like keepers to me.

FrenchBlue said...

It always happens to me:) Sometimes I will call and have it shipped to me and end up spending much more money and it is usally worth it:) Have a good weekend my most darling friend!! Love you and wish I could see your beautiful smiling face in person!!
Big hugs~
XOOX's

Privet and Holly said...

All the time!!!
Sorry you passed
them by ~ they are
so YOU : ) !!
xx Suzanne

Squirrelhaus said...

I learned a long time ago to just make the plunge. In Alaska you will usually never see it a second time.....Remember you can always put things on hold for a day!!!!!!!! Sorry you missed them, they were a wonderful color. So sad....like loosing a new found friend, sigh...
Have a great weekend......

Amanda said...

I'm not sure why (they are so lovely) - but don't beat yourself up too hard! This happens to me all the time too - buyers remorse or something isn't it called?

Susan said...

This happens ALL THE TIME! But I guess if it didn't I would have to conclude that I have NO SELF-CONTROL at all! teehee Gotta say they are super cute! Are they still available if you go back? If not, do like I do and remind yourself there will always be something new to want and maybe the person who did buy them has been looking for just that set for a loooong time!
Blessings!

Heidi said...

Yes in my shop I sold things I wish I never had...love those!!

Jenny at Red House said...

Hi love your blog, the pictures are just divine! jennyx

Libbie said...

Yes! It happens to me! I just hope you can get them out of your head...otherwise they will haunt you for years ;) Every time you hit a vintage store...you'll be looking for them :)

Laurie said...

Too many times for me! I am learning buy something I love when I see it or risk losing it :)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think that happens to all of us, BUT my mother told me a long time ago...if you love it and can afford it, buy it or it will be gone. I try to live by that when I can:)

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

We have all done this...regret something that we left behind. BUT know that something wonderful is ALWAYS around the corner.

Danielle

katrina said...

you're not alone, my friend -- i've done the same many times. :)

Suz said...

Yes, and I want to buy those very ones, Koralee. They don't match my kitchen but they do match my craft room. They are very cute! I am glad you took a picture so we could all enjoy them!
Hugs,
Suz

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Koralee,

Yes, I think that has probably happened to most of us.
They are so gorgeous and so you ~ sorry.

Hope that you are having a lovely weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

Rosie said...

Hello my sweet friend,
Ya, I think we've all experience these moments of regret...so sorry...I shall keep my eyes peeled for this collection of "kitchen cuteness".
All went well...thank you for your prayers.
xoxo....Rosie
