I love going to thrift stores - finding little treasures - and big treasures.
I have my Granny's Desert Rose Dishes. They were her every day dishes and I loved them the first time I ever saw them. I received a huge box of them in the mail as a surprise about 20 years ago. From time to time we add some extra pieces, always from thrift stores, flea markets or yard sales.
I have three different sizes of cups, these little ones might have been for after-dinner coffee, or for mugs of milk for the children.
I have plates in four sizes, bowls in five sizes, platters,coffee pots, cream and sugar, salt shakers - oh so many wonderful things.
And at a thrift store I discovered some of the prettiest pale green glasses. I thought they would be the perfect match for the Desert Rose, and when I got home, I discovered that they were perfect. I am still looking to find more so I can serve more than 4 people at a time with them.
