Well, I've finally been able to take a couple of shots of one of the "treasures" I purchased at the auction last weekend. I have a thing for china dishes. So did my gramma, and so does my mother. So, evidently it's just genetic. I mean, some people agonize over where to put a little vase or a little piece of pottery... and they decide they simply don't have room to "house" it. And I'm not criticizing them. I'm in awe. Honestly I am. I have a storage heaven in my home, but it is all pretty full.... I love to set my table with a different look for different moods, events, milestones. These dishes were sitting there calling to me at the sale, and I didn't dream I would be able to get them down the line for ten bucks for the whole box. Service for 8 (except cups.) I did get the saucers! Go figure. I think maybe my cups were in another box. I have two little cereal bowls and the meat platter, too... Johnson Brothers Holland. Mmm... I was searching my little heart out in town for a tablecloth. I checked Ebay a few times, even thought I'd make one. Finally I took a peek in my linen drawer and discovered my mother had given me this vintage yellow and blue one last year.! Yay!!! I'm having a little luncheon for family on Sunday, so my table is set. I just love the little ships sailing around on the plate. Now what will I fix to eat?
