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}

Hi Melissah!
I need to purchase a chine cabinet and fill it up! That is on my list of things to do when I purchase a house! Wish me luck!:))

Many years ago I purchased some of MS's white acorn dinnerware for next to nothing at K-Mart. Do I ever wish I had bought more! They are so difficult to find, but I have located pieces on eBay. Your collection is great!
