HELLO...I'M bj AND I'M A DISHAHOLIC

I HEART THIS AWARD....
IT'S PRETTY AND....IT'S TRUE THAT ..
I LOVE DISHES ! My sweet friend, LINDA , gave this award to me and
I'm not sure what the RULES are....
SOOOO.....
I'm gonna WING IT !!
*
list my favorite set of dishes....
*
I have a LOT of dishes but my collection of 10 place settings of
LIBERTY BLUE
is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE....
*
I have very few SERVING pieces so I use crystal bowls and
platters when I use this set.....
I'm forever searching for another piece but I do think
a service for 10 is enough for anyone !!
*
I KNOW....you've seen this piece a thousand times but it is, by far,
my FAVORITE SERVING PIECE.....
I have really used this versatile piece a lot...
*
I also like my BARNYARD BREAKFAST dishes...
let's see....there's a cow, a pig, a chicken and......
oh, yes....a rabbit ! :O)
one of the grands has her name on these !!
*
*

This set is from ENGLAND and probably is my
"best" set.....
I especially love it with silver pieces.....
uh oh...there's those famous BIRD salt and pepper shakers
that our sweet SUSAN of BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH
says she might do a Mr. Linky post on someday...
so many of us in Blogland have them...and I just came from
Target last night and they STILL HAVE THEM !!
:o)
*

These I have shown you several times....
they are WONDERFUL serving pieces...
soups, dressing, rolls....just about anything...
*

and, I can't forget my favorite little sugar bowl...
wow...$3.00 at a thrift shop...and all the way from ENGLAND..!!
*

I adore using my cut glass creamer and sugar bowl
handed down to me by my momma...
PRICELESS
*

I will always love my plain white dishes...
with a green mat, this will be a good setting to
work on for ST. PATRICKS DAY....
hmmmm...I need to find napkins with SHAMROCKS...
t'would be cute...
*************************
This isn't nearly all the dishes I have and love !
Just a sampling of some of my favorites...
**************
Please take the award and have fun playing with
some/all of your dishes...I know for a fact that there's
LOTS and LOTS of DISHAHOLICS
out there !!
Be sure to let me know so I can come over and visit....
AND, go over to see LINDA at BLUEGATE...she has a fabulous blog...
XO bj

Congratulations to you for receiving a most deserved award. ;-)

I agree that there are many dishaholics arounds. I would have to confess to more than on addiction.

BJ, I say wear that badge proudly!! You have a beautiful collection.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

BJ, I love ALL and I do mean ALL of your dishes! I have a thing for blue and white, and it appears you do, too! GREAT dishes, and I can see why your grand has a claim on those cute bunny plates! Oh, how cute are they! And I love the white birds, too.

Thank you so much for your sweet note yesterday, and I'd love to be your neighbor, too! :-) Although, I think we wouldn't get much done because we'd be too busy going to Target and TJ Maxx, getting loads of new dishes and chatting like magpies! :-)

Love to you, sweet friend...

XO,

Sheila

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, and congrats on being a full blown, card-carrying dishaholic! LOL! The good news is, the rest of us won't put you in rehab! ;-)

What lovely dishes. I love the black and white serving dish the very best...it is so neat! Sometimes I think my favorite dish is a white Styrofoam one from the little local restaurant. Smiles! Enjoy your reward.

These are all so pretty! I thought the very first ones were especially beautiful. There's just something about blue and white plates that feels so homey and cozy to me. Thanks for sharing! :)

This is a great post, BJ. I love all your dishes!

Blondie's Journal said...

BJ,

You are very deserving of this award and someday I may have it as well, trying to collect dishes for this & the lake house (you never know who may drop in!) I just love finding those old English pieces at the thrift stores. And it is perfectly acceptable, if not more interesting to mix them with other pieces!

Your crystal is gorgeous, they would take center stage for me.

Congratulations!! :-)

Jackie said...

Hello BJ, I love your dishes. I think I could easily become a dishaholic too!

God bless.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Oh, I love all of your dishes too! I too am a dishaholic, but the thing is....I BREAK em. Yep, I confess...I see a stack of wonderful vintage dishes all chipped and crazed and I just have to break them for my mosaics..

Hello BJ! I'd love to have Alice as a friend, too! I had so much fun playing with my valentine table using the same colors!
