My Love...

... Of old movies, always helps me to lift a bad mood.

Whether they are from the 1940s, 1960s, 1980s...

And for some odd reason, I love to buy VHS movies.

I have no clue why.

Lately the movie that has been on constant repeat in my home is,
{ I was only 6 when this movie was released }

I love this movie so much!

The way they first meet...

The way they fall in love...

Their chemistry!

Yes, their chemistry... It's perfect...

This movie ALWAYS makes me smile and helps me to forget that I'm lonely at times.

I wonder where my prince charming is...

I'm in LOVE...

{Isn't the cow creamer too adorable!!!}
... With white dishes!

It all began a few years back when I first discovered Martha Stewart.

I was thumbing through one of her many books, when I saw a page dedicated to white dishes.

How lovely...

From that moment on, I knew I wanted to build my own collection.

But I wanted all types, whether they were chipped or new from the store.

And not just for show either.

I wanted to make them functional.

I wanted them to brighten up my home and be put to good use.

{This lovely creamer houses my new paint brushes}

Since having a place of my own I have been blessed enough to find some great pieces.

Though I will be moving in September, back with Mom, I'm hoping to keep some pieces out to admire and to remind me that this move is not permanent.

I will get a better place and have more room!

More room to add more lovely dishes.

{A beautiful mix of thrift store & Pier 1 finds}
{I ordered the sweet tea cup from an Etsy shoppe, the rest are thrift store finds}
{I don't know why, but I can never seem to pass up the chance to purchase a creamer, NEVER}

{I found this beauty at a Goodwill, though the handle is long gone it is still striking}
{I found this pitcher at a small thrift store that is now long gone, so sad}
{Who remembers this baby? I fell in love with milk glass and I was able to add my first piece on my VERY first trip to a flea market, SCORE}
{The bowls were on clearance at Walmart for $3 each, I purchased the cake stand at Marshall's for $6.99}
{A lovely planter, that my naughty cat broke. I couldn't toss it so I'm in the process of cleaning it and keeping it. For what? I have no clue}
