~My Dish Collection*2012~

Hi, Everyone
This week I'm celebrating my birthday.  My birthday is  Sunday, June 3, 2012.
   I wanted to share some of my gifts to me that I have been collecting since I retired in February 2007... Just 5 years and I have collected a lot of stuff.
Some of my favorite tea cups.
The Big Question is?
Where do you keep it all?

This photo is 2011

I love my blue and white dishes.
 This cabinet was used in the early days for a set of  encyclopedias.
But my husband sold them all because he said "Now my wife knows everything. " LOL
It now  holds my precious dish collections

As I have said before! I keep it everywhere.

The Blue and White dishes got bumped from the cabinet over the television set.  And now I have them displayed on top of the cabinet that holds the tea cup and saucer collection. 

I also keep my cake pedestal plates on this cabinet too.

Some dishes hang on the wall 

And, now my new favorite Pink and White dishes are in the cabinet (where the encyclopedias were).

I made a red toile heart to match my dishes and I love the cloches and white soup tureen in the mix.

I know! Enough already...

This set of dishes are especially nice in the fall.
 I was so happy to find a place setting for 8 at the antique store for only $35.00
I love to go antiquing.

The top of the china cabinet is a great place to store these less used dishes.

  2. I confess, I'm a tea cup addict too. I have so many, I put myself in rehab and now I'm on the wagon. However, on occasion, I lapse into my old habit. But it's hard to resist something so pretty, so functional. There's nothing like a cup of tea in fine china. I love your collection and the little toile heart goes perfectly with the pink china.

  3. It's all so pretty! The pink and white set is gorgeous and I love the matching heart you made! There is something cozy and comforting about teacups, and though I haven't been bitten by that particular bug (yet), I love to see the teacups others collect! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love all the blue and white and that pink! So much fun to see your "pretties"! Thanks for sharing. P. S. So glad you know everything - you can teach the hubby - lol!!

  5. Oh my, I love themselves of your dishes, but my favorites are the pink and white ones. I noticed that you have a folding plate stand!!! I've been wanting one of those. Thanks for the peek at all your pretties.

  6. You are so organized.. love all your pretty dishes. and so beautifully organized too.. have a happy weekend. xo marlis

  11. You are organized and I have some patterns you have. I told my husband I am taking half a huge closet for dishes and he rolled his eyes but just a little. It is far better than a new kitchen after all.

  12. Wow, you have a lovely collection of dishes! You're ready for every occasion.
