Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! Guess what I'm sharing this week?

Dishes! I have a serious dish addiction!!!! 
This is just a small sampling of some of my dishes!



I love these old bluebird plates that I found at a thrift store years ago!

I know what you mean about the addiction. The plate addiction is a hard one to break. I'd buy more than I have, but I've run out of places to put them. All of yours are very pretty, so I see why you didn't pass those up!

Cindy, your plates are gorgeous! I have an addiction to transferware and teapots. Thanks for hosting.

Blessings,

So beautiful! I especially love flowery china, but those little bluebirds are adorable.

I love to visit the others on Show and Tell and marvel at their creativity. Thanks so much for being the hostess with the mostest!

Cindy, I won't be linking up this week as I'm having a giveaway. But I wanted to comment on your dishes and your incredible romantic style. The dishes you've shared today are so very romantic and keeping true to your style. The pretty bluebird dish is my all time favorite. I love birds, have a small Aussie finch for a pet, and fill my garden with feed and seed to keep all the smallest of God's creatures happy and well fed all year. It's just the sweetest thing the dish, and I am such an admirer of your style. I also love the fact that you rent, instead of own, so I know first hand you're limited as to what you can do. Yet you still let your imagination run wild. Well done, have a Wonderful Weekend, filled with love and romance, tami

Cindy-You have some of the most beautiful dishes ever. I absolutely adore that one with the little bird on it. And I, too, could spend all my money on dishes and books! Yeah...beauty and books...and sometimes I live with a beast...so I guess that about rounds out my fairy tale. Your fairy tale is ever-so-lovely! Hugs-Diana

Melissa Lester said...

Joe has pointed out many times that we could host a banquet with the number of dishes I have hanging on the wall, but I think they are such a beautiful art form.

And you can never have too many!

Mimi said...

Beautiful collection of dishes. Do you have sets of all these or just single plates?

Silver Pennies said...

It's good to know that I'm not the only D.A. (dish addict!)... we can go into rehab together.... LOVE all your beautiful patterns, especially the Limoges and Bavarian! :) mercedes
