*New* Vintage Goodies

This week I was given a couple of surprise treasures! This sweet person knows my likes very well, I must say. She had acquired a couple of random plates and "thought I might like them". Might?!?! I love them!!

This first one is a dinner plate. It's American made, with sweet flowers and gold around the edges. I plan to hang it in The Princess' room. It flows perfectly with the plates already hanging in her room.

This second one is more of the bread and butter size. It's Limoges with a lovely fruit pattern that I don't remember seeing before: "Pomona". I know I plan to use this some where in my living room, but I'm still deciding if I want to hang it or put it on a stand. I love these colors though, it matches so well.

Have you noticed the sweet quilted sampler that I'm using for this shot? I love this little piece and recently re-discovered it. I bought it in my pre-child days with the idea of hanging it in my nursery one day. And I did just that~with both children. Then it had been put away with all of the baby bedding. So recently when I was going through all of the storage tubs, I found it and thought it was just too pretty to pack away again. It's one of those things that makes me *smile*.

Very beautiful dishes, Lora! They are wonderful surprises to receive.

The quilt has very cheerful colors and is too pretty to be stored away.
