Dinner for two? The children are all gone and my sets of dishes now have grown by twos. When I see a pattern that I like at the thrift store, I pick up two, one for Mr. Wonderful and one for me.
I love this set, especially at this time of the year! Apples on these Franciscan beauties are perfect for our September dinner table. Yes, there are two of them, that's all, just a couple, same price $ 1. 30 for the pair.
Last year at the Gold Rush Flea Market I picked up this set of Swanky Swigs and the carrier for $ 12.00! The paint is a bit dried, maybe someone who collects them can tell me how to refresh it. I tried rubbing some lemon oil into it but no effect.
Since I'm showing you apples; here are a couple more. This set is called Gay Fad, I picked the sugar and creamer up because they matched Little Grama's cookie jar.
The turquoise Fiesta belonged to my Great Grandmother, she gave them to me when I was 4 years old! I've been in love with dishes ever since! Eight plates and saucers, no cups! On a vintage tablecloth I can't help but smile when I pass my dining room with these dishes on the table. I think dishes are my weakness but I only add them in twos nowadays!
