Last weekend I decided to gather all the odds and ends of white dishes I have been collecting into one place, the corner cabinet in the dining room. I like the final look.
None of these dishes cost much and were bought at thrift and junk stores or were gifts.
I've been learning a little bit about collectible dishes. There is ironstone, the poor man's china. There is also milk glass. And there are just plain white pretty dishes. I have a few pieces of iron stone and milk glass, but most of them fall in the latter category.
Now that I have learned a little bit about the history of dishes I know what to look for when out and about.
Don't you love those cinnamon brooms sold at Christmas time? This is one of those, but it doesn't smell like cinnamon any more. I tied a scrappy bow on it.
I still love those morning glories that a prior owner hand painted on this cabinet and would never think of painting over them!
Ps: I did work on a quilt this weekend!
