Dish Love...

So...I took a quick run through the thrift store yesterday and look what I found...


This cute little vintage cup and saucer goes with a set I bought at a flea market a few years back...I found a big old box full and I literally gasped out loud!!!
Lucky the price was right because there would have been no way I could have played off that reaction...everyone around me knew I was in love. (Except for maybe my husband who had the "nerve" to give me "that look" and tell me I didn't need anymore dishes. Now I don't make it a practice of ignoring my husband but in this case...I didn't give him a second look. They had already stole my heart.)


You might remember them from my Sentimental Junk post when I gave you a little peek at the treasures in the hutch my sweet hubby made for me.


And honestly, I don't know anything about them other than this is what it says on the bottom.

UPDATE...thank you to Ceekay from Thinkin of Home for the info on my dishes :) The pattern is Gay Nineties by Marcrest :)

Here's a closer look...



Cups and saucers...


Just look at these little scenes...


Three different plate sizes...




And 2 different glass sizes...




I mean SERIOUSLY can you stand it???  Love, love, love :)
Thanks for letting me gush...

  14. Hi Laurel...

    My friend, I certainly do understand your "gushing" about these gorgeous dishes! As a lover of all pretty dishes, myself! Hehe!

    This is the first time that I've seen this "Gay Nineties" pattern. They are adorable and I really do love all the different scenes...sooo cute! Love the color combination on them as well! Oohhh...and there are matching glasses to boot! Girl, you hit the jackpot finding these beauties! I'm so happy for you! Thanks for sharing them with us today!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari

  15. OooOOOOoooo,Laurel! My heart is racing!! I love those dishes!!! Never heard of that pattern, but they are precious! Husbands just don't understand dishes...they never will. You just have to tell them that buying them is what's best for everyone. I have way more dishes than I'll ever use, but some women buy diamonds...dishes are cheaper! You are one blessed lady! Vicki
