I Thought I Conquered My Blue Dish Addiction!


Hi everyone!
Woe is me. I thought my blue dish addiction was licked! I have been working very hard to ignore dishes in blues. I have a small village dish shop worth of just blue dishes! I do NOT need any more. I haven’t bought any in a long time. But, as my bum was sitting on the floor at a local thrift store grubbing through misc. dishes and glassware, I caught a peek of blue flowers. NO Diann! Just back away! Do not even look at them. Um, Diann, this is not how we back away and ignore the pretty blue dishes!
I so ignored my inner anti blue dish voice!
These were just so pretty!
3-11 Bargain Finds 105They only had one saucer and 3 dinner plates. But, I also had a 50% off coupon for my entire purchase. So, the salad plate was .40 cents and the dinner plates were .80 cents.
3-11 Bargain Finds 106They are just so pretty!  I have already rotated my “everyday plates” to include these.

3-11 Bargain Finds 107I got a set of these pretty smallish saucer for .95 cents (for all 4).

This week’s Tablescape post will show the flower dishes and vases in it. I just love the blue dishes!

Now, I am just going to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee and read my new vintage blue book called, “Setting Your Table” Copyright 1941 and nibble on a couple of sugar cookies. Want to join me?

    Hi, I'm Susan. And I'm a blue and white dishaholic, too.

    hee hee The dishes are gorgeous. Just gorgeous. LOVE them and I would have bought the dinner plates in two seconds flat. See? Dishaholics need to stick together. Susan

  16. It's an endless cycle...one blue plate, then another and suddenly you must purchase a bigger china cabinet, and so it goes! I love blue and white dishes too! There's many worse things to be addicted to, but none as pretty and enjoyable. You found some beauties here! Best, Vicki

  24. So sweet! I have heard there is a 12-Step Program for many such addictions that afflict many out here in blogland. Some of us have so many addictions that the program doesn't even come close to beginning the healing process. Do you fit in this category. If so, I think you are in pretty good company, Diann. LOL!!!

  29. Just today I introduced a friend to tablescaping and she has beautiful blue dishes that we set up in her dining room. We had such fun grabbing things from all over her house and out of her china cabinet. I think she's inspired! So thank you! We all do!
