White Treasures Found!

Today my daughter found four plates, two salad plates, and three serving bowls, in the pattern of her Great Grandmother’s every day dishes, for $7.50

Do you remember these white dishes? I found in Hubbys Grandmother’s cabinet. He had not seen them since he was a little boy. I had them saved for years,
took them out of storage and cleaned them up on Valentines Morning.

Here are Hubby Grandmothers dishes I saved from the bulldozer!
They are inside the bottom blue shelves, Remember I made this buffet, from the old kitchen islands two drawers.

My daughter, Suzette was so excited for these will be her dishes to go with her Great Grandmother’s pieces. We did not have any serving bowls of this pattern. With a little cleaning up they will sparkle.
I shall get to keep them and use them for a while.

  1. Lady Katherine you are so sweet to have done this for your hubby on Valentines Day. I know he loved it. They are such beautiful white dishes. What a treasure.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  2. Hi Lady Katherine,
    I can just imagine how excited your daughter was to find those dishes! I share her joy! The lovely white will look wonderful with other patterns too! I believe I felt the same way when I found my Rose Chintz on eBay! It was my aunt’s pattern and I had loved it since I was a little girl but to my dismay, they had stopped producing it. Then, when I stumbled across it, I was elated! Thankfully, my sweet auntie has given me some of her pieces to add to my collection. Such lovely treasures with a lovely sentiment! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.


  3. Hi Sweet Friend!! I have missed our visits!! It is wonderful that your daughter found this special treasure of matching dishes!! A lovely little bit of serendipity for sure!!

    We’re back from the Smokies and had a great time. Just got my computer back so hopefully I will blog about it tonight or tomorrow!!

    Love you! And I’m praying God’s best for you!!

  4. Hello my Lady! I LOVE those old white dishes. Would you believe I have a flat soup plate in that pattern, only in ivory and not white china? My mother had a very varied collection of odd dishes, and I have most of them now!

    You asked if I am a weaver — sadly, no, but I would love to try. But I began knitting, crocheting and sewing when I was about 7, and in the MANY years since I’ve learned a lot about fabrics.

    And now daughter Anne helps me — she is a theatrical costume design grad student, and studied fabrics in college. If I’m unsure, I ask her!

    Have a fab weekend.., Cass

  5. Lady Katherine, I thought I just posted, but I don’t see it. So in case it didn’t go through, I’m going to post again. Love your dishes! I think it’s wonderful that you found them to match your hubby’s grandmother’s.

    Love to you and your sweet family…

  11. Hello Katherine…

    Ohhh myyy…I’m so glad that you saved your husband’s grandmother’s beautiful white dishes from the bulldozer…eeeekkks! The thought of them being broken to pieces just makes me cringe! I’m so happy for your daughter…finding more dishes to go with that beautiful set! I’ve had such a “thing” for white dishes here lately…hehe! They are absolutely gorgeous on the blue shelves that you made…the blue just makes the white really “pop”!!! I love it!!!

    Well Darlin’…I left you a note on your Sunday Favorites post…sorry that I’m so late at getting by to see it! I had a very busy day yesterday…helping honey with one of my home improvement projects! Have a marvelous Monday, my friend!


  12. Bulldozer? How’d I miss that?

    Were they in a building about to be demolished? Buried somewhere for safekeeping? my children were digging out in our backyard on the old family Homeplace years ago, and unearthed quite a few pieces of somebody’s Grandmother’s Blue Willow teaset.

  13. How beautiful! Glad you have something so treasured and sentimental!

    Have a lovely weekend, Sweet Lady Katherine!

    ~Michelle 😉
