3 or More Tuesday/2nd Time Around

Hi again everyone! This is my post for "3 or more Tuesday" Hosted by Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. And for "2nd Time Around" hosted by Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words When you get a chance, stop by these two wonderful blog and see what's going on for this weeks party!

I didn't even realize that I seem to be "collecting" these little dishes. I have no idea what they are originally made for but, I use them for doodads. LOL I get them at flea markets, thrift stores or antique shops. I never pay more than $1.00-$2.00 for each of them. I just really love them! I have these 3 on my dresser and put my jewelry for the day in one, change ends up in another and just odds and ends in the third one. I also have them as soap dishes in our bathrooms.

I just think they are so pretty. I really love the ones I get that have feet on them.

(I think Mary created a "Mosaic Making" monster out of me! LOL)

  1. Hi Diann,

    I love your dishes. Isn't is amazing how we have collections without even realizing it? I'm a very new blogger and am discovering so many wonderful collectors there are out there in blogland!

    Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  2. You use them for exactly what they where made for. They are called pin dishes and they where made to be put on your dressing table and to put your hairpins and jewelry in when you went to bed. They are very, very sweet.

  3. Very pretty! I did not know what they were for either. Thanks Poppedijne for that info. How do all of you make the mosaics>

  4. What pretty little dishes, snd how nice thay you now know that you're using them for their intended purpose!

  5. Very pretty. I love collections that you can use and enjoy!
