Friday Show and Tell........

Today is Friday so it's SHOW AND TELL over at Kelli's...............

This is a covered bowl with pheasants and a rabbit on the lid....the bowl has a woven basket design....I bought it a an estate sale for $2.00. I've seen one either like it or very similar on someone's blog lately.........





This is a collection of white and cream dishes....The large plate on the top left is a Lenox Wedding Plate. I bought it at Goodwill for $2.00 still in the presentation box. On the back is the story of the plate. I checked at a jewelry store about 5 years ago and it was listed above $90.00.

The white plate with a gold design in the center cost a dollar or two. That's a monogram in the center so I turned it upside down and it looks like a design. An English round platter is propped up. The teapot lamp was a Mother's Day gift from our daughter.

Small pitchers or large pitchers, I like them all............Do you like white and cream colored dishes?

I like almost all dishes! But I don't have the collections you do. I am always amazed at your Show and Tell items. They are always beautiful and presented in such a lovely way.

dot said...

Yes I do! I like colored ones too but I don't collect any kind. You sure do find some good deals!

Chrissy said...

Those are pretty!

Betty,
Your white and cream collection is great. I like how you display them all together. I do have some also. I enjoy finding treasures at Goodwill, too. blessings.

You have a wonderful collection! I like to collect cream pottery. That was a very clever idea to turn the monogram upside down. I don't think I would have thought of that.

Lyndy said...

So pretty and I love your whole collection.

Have a blessed weekend.

That's a beautiful collection, and so neat that you found them at such great prices! And how clever to turn the monogrammed one upside down -- I never would have thought of that.

White dishes are my favorites. They are so pretty!

Sharon said...

The only white dish that I have is a large turkey platter. I use it every Thanksgiving.

Yours are so lovely. The lamp is so pretty!

Brin said...

I love, love, love your red wall, your white dishes and... well... all cream and white dishes! I'm also on the scout for good ones at estate sales and the like. Looks as though you've found some fantastic ones!

Hope you have a blessed weekend,

Brin

Betty, I just started collecting creamware too (I think you saw my DR recently last week & posted), and love how it looks in my red DR too. You have a wonderful collection. I am constantly on the lookout for more.

I seem to have a "thing" about dishes too! Creamed colored, beautiful florals, fruit plates, green jadite--they are such a delight with their different shapes, patterns, and styles.
You have a beautiful collection, and so attractively displayed against your lovely red wall!
Loved visiting! Blessings to You! Claudia O.

I love white and cream dishes and I especially like the basket weave on your little rabbit and pheasant dish. You have your dishes displayed so beautifully!!

Beautiful Betty! I love it all! And I want to say I just love your home~ and the guest cottage! I also would love to have a birdhouse like yours! So cute!

Pam said...

I have a weakness for dishes, no matter what colors! But the monochromatic theme of white and cream is beautiful and chic!

HORIZON said...

In design most people don't realise that cream and white, put together, can work so well. You have collected a wonderful set of platters and jugs Betty- a stroke of genius by grouping them together this way too. Doesn't it feel great when you get a bargain or find just what you've been looking for at a thrift shop? l love it and perhaps will venture out to find something today.
Also, l have to say that l love that teapot lamp- very quirky.
Have a lovely weekend my friend.

Love them!! Your collection is very pretty! Thanks for sharing.

Ruth said...

Very pretty dishes! I love to see a great collection. I love all kinds of glass dishes. For that matter I love glass jewelry, too!

Gina E. said...

This is such an elegant display. I wish I had such good taste! I collect bits and pieces that appeal to me, and they are all in a lovely old cabinet that I inherited, but it just looks a hodge podge!!

PamperingBeki said...

How pretty!!! I really enjoyed that.
