Collections

I have several sets of dishes and I love them all. Since complete sets are difficult to display, I recently have been buying one of a kind cups, saucers, and plates. My hutch is a work in process. I've put most of the Blue Willow away and am displaying one of a kinds. I'll post it when it's complete. My granddaughter and I spent a Friday morning at a flea market and stopped at a little antique/vintage shop.


I love all of these cups and saucers.




I spent more than I usually do on this teapot but I really like it. There was another teapot with a sugar bowl and creamer that I liked. It was less expensive. I hope that it isn't sold because I'd like to buy it.

I'm hoping to have time this weekend to take some photos of some of my favorite dishes.

Beautiful china. I hope when you go back, the other set is not sold.
Have a good day.

Those teapots always command a pretty penny. I guess many of them must have gotten broken through the years. The plates are more plentiful and cheaper.

I am so glad you stopped by my blog. It's very.. nice to meet you. I love your blog. Your collection is very pretty. I have to tell you, "I have tears in my eyes". Your Sherry Jo is so.. beautiful. Why would someone do such a terrible thing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your beautiful family. Six girls, I grew up in a family of 4 girls. All of us girls have girls. My niece just had the first boy in 3 generations. Please, stop by my blog again. Terrie

I can't wait to see your hutch with its new details. Shopping in little antique shops is fun and dangerous. I solve that by staying home pretty much. :) Do you use your blue willow dishes daily to eat on?

Hugs ~
