For more years than I would like to admit,
I have collected plates.
I love dishes…especially plates and pitchers.
Plates are everywhere in my home…even the bathrooms.
(I’m sorry but I can’t show you my loos. Maybe someday…)
Here’s the entry plate rack.
This is how it looked until yesterday.
For my January look I went with simple blue and white.
(I guess I need something on that bottom shelf…)
I plan to remove this red wallpaper asap.
I’m thinking vertical blue and cream stripes might make the ceilings seem higher.
Not sure I’m up to all that taping though.
I have several pieces of I.Godinger creamware.
This plate is one of my favorites.
It’s inexpensive and readily available at TJMaxx and on eBay.
These ironstone platters were actually
my first ironstone purchase EVER.
I got them at a church tag sales years ago.
There are 6. I love them as much today as the day I brought them home.
I think the set of 6 was $3.00.
More blue and white in the dining room.
The top 2 and bottom 2 were purchased at my antique mall.
The middle ones are imports but I love the design.
I had 3 of these cabbage plates.
I broke one a few years ago and believe me I just about cried.
I still haven’t gotten over it.
This set of 6 dessert plates came from my in-laws.
The marking on the bottom says Made in France
but that’s all I know about them.
These 8 dinner plates were also at my in-laws.
They are burgundy with a raised gold design.
Here are my Quimper knock-offs.
A good knock-off but a knock-off none the less.
Love them too.
More I.Godinger by the lamp.
Finally here is my plate rack in the kitchen.
I had it custom made after I bought my Liberty Blue dishes.
Several summers ago I sold my set of dishes from Pier 1
and bought this set a few pieces at a time.
It took the whole summer but it was so worth it.
I can’t imagine ever parting with it…
but never say never.
