Decorating, dishes and other random thoughts...

I love old things. I joke if it's white with paint chipping off of it-it's my style. I adore all things shabby chic: iron bed frames, floral's, old dishes, etc. I actually have a weakness with dishes. I don't know what it is, but I love them. It's not as hard to contain myself now because we literally don't have one place to put another dish. My wedding china is still at my parents house in TX. We were only supposed to live in SC a couple of years and I didn't see the need to move it and take a chance that some might get broken...well, it's 6 years later now...I digress...

When my mom was here we were looking at a few home blogs. (By the way there are about a million sites I love and check everyday that aren't listed on my blog roll! Here are a few home sites I love! Bless our Nest, Holly Mathis Interiors, and Nesting Place)

When we were looking at Bless Our Nest she showed these great luncheon dishes:

My mom said she thought she had some of these and that she actually got rid of them a few years ago-so sad! But she called today and she still has 8 sets. I'm so excited! I think they will be perfect for showers or tea parties (because I have these all the time) and I am so excited to be able to use them (sometime).

I'm such a hostess at heart. I love decorating and crafting. I just don't do it as much as I'd like to here (in SC) because we are always out of town for holidays. I used to start decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving (and if I'm honest it was closer to Halloween), but it's just not worth it when we are out of town for almost the entire month of December and then I have to take it down-ugh! That's my least favorite part...

I had no idea you were in SC. We're in Greenville...turns out we're neighbors.

Love the dishes...such a great find!

Oh my gosh...I used to have those dishes! I wish I still did but, sadly, I gave them away. My mom gave them to me years ago. I'm glad your mom saved hers!
