For our little trip to Star Valley last month my friend RaeAnn from Cutie Pinwheel bought me the cutest little tea cup and saucer and confessed that she found it at Deseret Industries. So today I decided that I would stop by D.I. to get a couple of ties to let the kids try and dye eggs like Nedra did on her blog (Cactus-Needle). I'm wandering thru D.I. looking for ties and decide it would be fun to stop over at the pottery section and see if I could find a tea cup like RaeAnn did. And low and behold, I see the most beautiful set of dishes I've ever seen!! They jumped off the shelf and landed in my cart and insisted on going home with me! I have been looking for plates for the longest time thinking I wanted to replace my everyday dishes. I thought these would be it...then upon returning home I looked them up on the internet and found out they are from the 1940's and worth lots of money. So I won't be using them for everyday, but I'm definately serving Easter dinner on them. I got 13 dinner plates, 12 salad plates and 6 saucers...paying about $26 for the entire set!! One plate on the internet goes for $18 on Ebay, but the replacement value is $29 for a dinner plate. I forgot to say I also got a platter for $1.50 (retails for $70 on the internet) and a serving bowl. They are so me and Shabby Chic and I'm tickled pink!! Thanks RaeAnn for inspiring me!
My husband and I are the parents of 5 children. 2 boys and 3 girls. I love to travel, watch my children succeed, quilt, study nutrition (it's been a 35 year obsession), help others achieve good health, playing for hours in the kitchen creating awesome food and practice yoga.
