My sweet husband went looking
around at one of our favorite antique malls.
He saw a large set of dishes with the usual
dinner plates, salad plates, cups and saucers.....
and then unusually, there were also many serving pieces!
He really liked the different farm scenes
that were on each different piece.
So he bought that 90 piece set
for his wife who he knew would
it......because she loves dishes!
If my wonderful Dad was still with us, I could
hear him saying
"Tammy girl, you need another set of dishes like
you need a hole in your head!"
Well Dad, these new pieces of ironstone will find
a good home with me!
Sweet husband was so proud of himself!
He should be......I know that we'll enjoy this set of
regular, everyday lunches...
special, get together dinners....
and week night dinners!
These pieces will go with other dishes
I have and will help me set
Look at that stack of ash trays!
We won't be using those as they were originally intended.....
they'll make nice little candle plates, drink coasters, bone plates,
candy dishes, etc.
The backs of the dinner plates are stamped with
Memory Lane, ironstone, 1965.
These extra large plates are service plates.
One doesn't eat from them but they sure look
nice at each place setting on a table set for a meal.
The gravy boat is one of my favorite pieces.
I decided to wash several of these
new to me dishes and use them at dinner.
They did set a pretty table.....
....what do you think, Glitterinas?
How cute are these salt and pepper shakers?
I found all of these lovely dishes
a place to live.....
.....the linens that were here ......
have been re-located
to a shelf in the linen closet....
......done and done!
I am so glad you stopped by
Thank you so much for looking through
my pictures and reading my thoughts
about new to me dishes!
I think I need to give sweet husband another hug!
Hugs and dishes,
