Earl and I were having dinner with friends recently. I admired her dishes and she explained that they were the every day dishes that she had purchased years ago when she was first married, and that she liked them so much they were the only set she owned and used.
Earl's reply? "Yeah, we only have one set of dishes too." I could only look at him and wonder who he had been living with for 34 years. "We only have one set of dishes?"
Well, ok. There is the set of plain white dishes that I won in a giveaway a couple years ago. We use them the most right now.
And then there is the set of brown transferware that I use for Thanksgiving dinners. I picked up the set at Salvation Army for a song, one of my best finds yet.
Of course I love my set of red transferware too. Picked up at Marshalls years ago. I have been thinking of swapping the white ones out for these for a while just for a change. I l♥ve red.
And then the set of Johnson Brothers rose chintz that we have used for years for Christmas and Easter. The girls love these :>) Those came from the church garage sale. Another steal at $15 for a big box of everything from dinner plates to salad plates and tea cups and saucers.
And you do remember the Wedgewood that I bought at the garage sale a couple years ago? $2 a plate, and I meant to put them in the etsy shop but I. just. can't. If I ever find more of these I'm adding to the set. You were with me at the garage sale. remember those?
One set of dishes? I don't think so.
How about you, are you a dish lover too?
