old mother hubbard

i had my china out for an airing the other day.  my cupboards still don’t have doors on them so i had to take everything out wash them down.  while i was at it washed all the dishes.  i thought i would take a picture for you.


since they’re so gorgeous.  don’t you wish you could spend all your money on dishes?


i picked up another 6 settings of my gold crown china at a yard sale for $2.  now i have service for twelve.  dinner plates, bread plates, salad plates and tea cups with saucers.  no dessert bowls though.  or any other bowls for that matter.  and not a single serving dish.  haven’t bumped into one anywhere.


and here they are all put away.  waiting to get all dusty again.  you know, i do have the doors painted and sitting in the garage…  not that that means anything.  just a thought.

    But then you couldn’t see all those pretty dishes. Get glass doors, that would be perfect. And I want your china, aren’t I greedy?

    Goodness, I am jealous. I got rid of so many pretty dishes before we moved here because I just couldn’t justify shipping them (only to have them dwell in the dark, cockroach-y recesses of my cabinets). Sigh.

    which reminds me paula, did you like those red, polka dot mugs i sent you? i *had* to buy them but they didn’t match anything so i couldn’t keep them. wondered if you had the same predicament.
