Found this quilted cat at a thrift store
This really isn't about cats at all...but when thinking of my obsession or should I say collection of dishes this phrase comes mind. Yes, I'm definitely the lady with lots (I mean a lot) of dishes.
But wait, not just any dishes! I love my collection of blue and white staffordshire, my brown and white transfer ware and so many others. The truth is that I have so many collection of dishes we could eat for days and days and days without washing any and still not run out. Yikes, I must truly be the dish lady.
There's nothing more satisfying than eating from a beautiful old plate, bowl or platter. Honestly, I could purchase new plates but, there's something (sometimes a chip, but definitely character, age and beauty) that old dishes possess and I can't resist collecting.
Most of these dishes I've collected for many, many, many years and have the journal notes to prove it.
So I hope you'll enjoy the pictures, as much as I liked photographing them and daily using them.
