Some sentimental dishes ...................






I wanted to show ya'll some dishes. I found the little cloche at a store called "Ross", this is a new store for our area and I am finding some really good deals at them. If you have one near you check it out. I got the napkin and doilly at a garage sale.
Oh and the cake plate! I think I am getting a thing about cake plates. You know , like a collection thing about to get started ! I got this one at Ross also. It is really heavy . It reminds me of one my mother has, that was my grandmothers.
The big plate is from my great aunt Lena.I had 6 of these and found another one at a yard sale the other day. I was browsing in an antique store and found 4 bread and butter plates to match. I was so glad to find these, they were flawless ! I hugged them all the way to the cash register . I think they are so pretty . Now I have started looking for more pieces to go with them . I just like the hunt for the thrill of finding what ever it is I am looking for . But I really treasure anything that was a family members. It makes me go on a sentimental journey !

They are all very pretty! I love the doilies. I have been looking to buy some and I don't think they make them any more!!!! I take a sentimental journey when I pull out things that belonged to my family memebers as well. It's like having them right there with you.

take care,
Dawn

Hi Theresa! Now, I'm jealous! I love your beautiful things! The little cloche is adorable. Yes, I'm very familiar with Ross and that place receives alot of Mr. Precious' money! lol

I like the color of blue that is running through your pictures in this post. And I love those plates too, many different colors of roses and flowers. Really pretty.

Judy said...

I love your dishes. Don't you just love the hunt and finding something that matches a treasure you have at home. That is probably why we go treasure hunting whenever we get a chance.
