Today I’m recycling a post from November 2016 with a few new mosaics. I hope you enjoy it!
A November Brunch with a dear friend means an autumn table and thankfulness.
For the last several years I’ve made a yellow table for May, but I wasn’t planning to make one this year. Then I find sunny yellow placemats in the store and knew it was again time for a May yellow table. I enjoy collecting vintage dinnerware at thrift stores. I have 3 salad plates in the Corelle pattern Spring Meadow which was made in 1977. There is something about the little pastel flowers which I find cheerful.
For the last few months, I’ve had my vintage lace tablecloth on the dining table many days. It reminds me of my mother who nearly always had a lace tablecloth on our dining table. Recently, I got a wonderful find in vintage American china by Homer Laughlin. One plate is in the Homer Laughlin China Virginia Rose E 37 N 8 pattern. There are several patterns with the name Virginia Rose – it’s the designation E 37 N 8 that tells you it was a pattern introduced in the 1930’s.Read More
Back in 2000, I began collecting Corelle’s Shadow Iris for my everyday china. I love the feminine design and colors. The round collection was produced from 1985 to 2015. They then produced a modern square set with the same iris graphic.
