~Leap Day Once More~

 I could not let this day go by without posting something.  I will not get the chance to post on February 29th again until 2016!  I thought I should make hay while the sun was shining! = )

There really isn't a whole lot going on here, so I thought I would share a few pictures of some of my collections that I have taken in the recent weeks.  I hope you enjoy them and I hope you are spending this Leap Day doing something that makes you smile!

~Article in Local Paper~

Yesterday, in our local paper, was a very nice article about me being the senior writer of A Primitive Place & Country Journal magazine.  I thought you might be interested in reading it.

~For the Addiction...I Mean Love of Dishes~

 I was talking to a friend of mine who is not into primitives and she asked me what kind of dishes people who are into primitives use.  I thought for a minute and then had to admit that I was not sure.  We do a lot of talking about what we collect and how to display our collections, but we rarely talk about the items we use everyday. 

I decided that it might be fun to open up our cabinets and show what our dishes look like.  Some of you may know that I have a true love (addiction) for dishes.  It is a illness that I inherited from my mother.  Many of the dishes I collect are rarely used.  I just enjoy looking at them.  If I do use them, it is only on special occasion. 

Today, I open my cabinets wide and share with you the many dishes that I have.  I encourage you to do the same.

This is the built in cabinet that is on the left side of the fireplace in the dining room.  The dishes from top to bottom are:  chocolate and ivory Fiesta, Currier & Ives dishes, The Friendly Village dishes, and some white dishes that I cannot remember the name of, but I got them for a wonderful price. = )


This is the hutch in the dining room.  I have more of The Friendly Village dishes displayed in it.


This is the built in cabinet that is on the right side of the fireplace in the dining room.  The dishes in this cabinet from top to bottom are:  cobalt Fiesta, the blue dishes are call Countryside and the green dishes are called Wheat, more Currier & Ives dishes, and white and cinnabar Fiesta.


This cabinet holds my vintage Fiesta.


So does this cabinet! = )


These are the cabinets in the kitchen.  This cabinet has shamrock and sunflower Fiesta.


Paprika and marigold Fiesta.


Peacock and lemongrass Fiesta.


These are the dishes we use everyday.  They are scarlet Fiesta.


These are my Jade-ite dishes.


Oh my, I thought I had a problem, but now looking at all of my dishes, I know I have a problem...LOL!  Of course like any true addict, I have dishes placed in other parts of the house that I was too embarrassed to take pictures of. = ) 

So tell me, what are some of your favorite dishes and what do you use for everyday?


I also wanted to wish all of you a wonderful Valentine's Day.  I hope you spend it with the people you love the most.  Thank you for filling my life with love.  I truly appreciate it.

~For the Love of Yellow Ware~

 I have always liked yellow ware, but in the last couple of months, my like for yellow ware has slowly turned into love.  I was thinking today about how much I love yellow ware (I obviously had some time on my hands...LOL) and I decided that my new love for it may because it matches the trim color in the kitchen so well.

The trim color in the kitchen is a Martha Stewart Living paint color and it is called cornucopia.  I think Martha should have called it yellow ware yellow!  Maybe I should email her, I am sure she would be willing to change it! = )

I have decided that I am going to collect more yellow ware.  You all know what that means!  Jeff will find himself travelling the country in search of yellow ware...LOL!  Take a look at some of the yellow ware that I have now.






In this picture, you can see the trim color.  It really does go well with the yellow ware.






I bought this bowl yesterday.  I posted a picture of it on facebook and most people had not seen one with a lid before.  Some people thought that the lid may have been meant for a canister and it fit on the bowl.  I am not sure, but to me it looks like a yellow ware casserole dish.  Either way, I love it!


Be looking for more yellow ware pictures in the future.  You know how I am when I start collecting something!!
