China



I guess I'm a china junky. I LOVE DISHES!!! I've never been able to resist pretty dishes, chipped or not, sets or single pieces. I fall in love with a set of china and I know I'll never want anything else again, ever. But then a four or five years later, a new love catches my eye. I think this time it's for real. A few years ago, with my strong hinting, my husband gave me/us a set of Royal Albert's Old Country Roses. We added another set to it and several extra pieces and I still love it so much. I also love red transfer ware and they mix beautifully. It seems like the red just makes my heart dance
whenever I look at it or use it. I guess it's like Molly Brown's husband, Johnny, said about her, "She LIKES red!"
I hope I never tire of the joy of dishes.
God bless you, Diane

I love your collection Diane, it's so pretty and all does go together perfectly! I have a collection of old vintage cups and saucers,that I had bought over the years.they're somewhere in this house, I had them boxed up when we moved, and Ken doesn't know where he put it. Enjoy your beautiful sets, I know I would! (Pray I find mine? I've been looking for 10 yrs.)

My favorites are the Naturewood by Pfaltzgraff. I love eating off them and well, just looking at them makes me happy. :c)

I just love those cups with the faces on Diane. You have a wonderful collection.
I was looking for that candle at a few boutique stores today but never found it but will keep looking.

Good Morning, Diane...
LOVE your choice of china.. I've never been one to want a set of fancy china, but I might be able to be convinced, now that I've seen yours! I, too, love the color red... always have, always will... so much so, that my new kitchen will have bright red cabinets! I'm quite envious of your corner cabinet, too! Great collection, and thank you for the kind comments on my bite, I really appreciate it... xoxo
