A while back I shared that I was addicted to paper. Paper is what I would like to refer to as a gateway drug. I have many other addictions as well...all legal in every state. Today I will share with you what my good friend Q calls my "accute-dishism"...AKA my addiction to dishes...sets of them. I do not think it is a problem nor is it abnormal to own this many sets of dishes. Let's begin.
On the right are my winter dishes...only to be used during the calendar winter season, not just when it is cold out. I have 16 of them. To the left are my Thomas O'Brien dishes. These are used willy nilly like. I have 8 of them.
These black ones are my "everyday" dishes. I am sick of them. I have the whole set of these...big plates, little plates...two different kinds of bowls...I'm fancy like that.
These were my grandmothers. Whole set here too, including dainty little tea cups. I like to use these in the spring or summer.
These were Doug's grandmothers. I have bits and pieces of the set and I love every single piece. They are made by Johnson brothers.
These belonged to another grandmother and are another whole set. Spring and summer.
I LOVE the little flowers on here...so sweet.
These are my plates for Christmas Day and New Years Day. I only have four of these. Eventually I want to have separate plate sets for Christmas and New Years.
These are what I refer to as "birthday china". They are one of the most expensive sets that Lennox makes/made. I hate these too and I am selling them (there is a story behind them). I have almost a whole set. The pattern is called "Liberty" and is part of the presidential collection. Email me if you want a price quote.
So there you have it-I hope that was interesting to someone out there. Believe it or not I am down a few sets AND I am not ashamed to admit that I am on the hunt for new "everyday" dishes. I say "everyday" because I don't really save any of my dishes "for good"...I like to use them whenever I can.
