Show and Tell Friday!

Once again, it's Show and Tell Friday hosted by Kelli at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/.

Today I am showing a little part of my collection of "small dishes" that I have bought at either antique stores or antique shows. I love collecting these small dishes. I have to admit...I feed my two baby cats out of a couple of them. Well! They have to eat out of pretty dishes too. :) I just started my collection and hope it will grow! My favorite dishes have small floral prints or fruit prints but I am open to any small dish that is sweet and lovely. The Palmer Wirf Antique Show (http://www.palmerwirfs.com/) that comes into town twice a year is where I usually get them. There are so many vendors at this show that it's hard to see everything but it's well worth spending the whole day there. It's coming to Portland soon so I better get my cart all ready for collecting! :)

The two on the right are Royal Albert's Old Country Roses if I'm not mistaken. Lucky kitties to have such pretty dishes!

Thanks for visiting my Show & Tell.

Mishelle,

I've thought about buying Mocha a leopard canopy bed. It's terrible! :)

Michelle said...

Chez nous,

Thanks for the info on the two plates. I still have a lot to learn yet on these antiques so I need all the help I can get. :)

Michelle said...

Hi Tamy,

Yes, I find it more interesting when you mix and match. :)

What a wonderful collection.Do you mean they are miniature or toy in size.
Have a great week.

Michelle said...

Hey Grammy,

They are about 3.5 inches across. So, I guess not toy size. :)

Pretty little dishes...love them. I prefer fruit and roses mostly too.
And our crazy cat eats out of a cut crystal bowl...I was hoping it would bring him some refinement...LOL...alas, no such luck!

Blessings,

Zaroga,

I peeked at your recipe blog......I didn't have a lot of time so I left really quick because I was afraid I would get hooked! I will look at your blog later because all that food looked SOOOOO good!

Michelle said...

Hey Susie,

Okay, you are a better parent than me..serving your kitties out of crystal! It's like the Fancy Feast cat. Ha!
