I thought I'd give you a quick look into yet another addiction I have called dishes aka, china.
I tell ya', I had not acknowledged just how much of this I had until I tried to figure out what to capture for todays posting and started walking around with the camera.
Then I began to see....
I have only given a small glimpse of what I have out because of the limited real estate we have in this little house.
But I have managed to display a few pieces of my favorites such as my Ironstone, Keystone International and Wedgwood. This particular set of Keystone International (the butter dish) is exactly like my Mothers and I have a complete set that I found this past summer. Never used, mint condition. Funny thing is, it's still "never used, mint condition" because I favor using other pieces that are tucked away in the kitchen cabinet.
However, my favorite has to be the Ironstone pieces. The simplicity of design or the more complex designs made subtly because its all white. I love mixing the different pieces which is really easy since it's white, shocking I know.
I have way to many pieces stored away on shelves and continue to buy pieces as I find them. It's an addiction seriously. But it works well with the fabric addiction, or so I think.
Each piece is unique and has a history all unto itself. Much like my FiestaWare collection that I've had for many years. What I particularly enjoy about my dishes whether it be Ironstone, FiestaWare, or other china is that I use it daily. With the exception of the Keystone International china, we actually use china everyday. My thinking is "why wait for special occasions?" Isn't everyday special, if you want it to be? I'm just sayin'.
Well thanks for the visit and I hope that each of you have a warm, safe and creative day!
