White Diner China
So, the craftysisters seem to follow in each others footsteps when it comes to certain household items. Dishes seems to be a big one. I have been passed on several sets of dishes over the years when other craftysisters decide to move on to something different. (I am also called the family museum for some of the things I have been passed that I still own.
This time though, we all seem to be following Mom (craftysister Lynne), but she isn’t moving to something different. Thankfully, over the years she has collected so much that she was actually able to cut her collection into three parts and with only $26 and some help from Loryn, I was able to complete my set (or rather, complete it as much as I wanted).
White diner china is something that I never really figured I would get into, but it is so versatile and classic that it will never go out of style. In fact, when I wanted to complete the set, I went to Old Time Pottery and found three gigantic aisles of white and off-white diner china and was able to match the color of the plates Mom and Loryn gave me.
I am very happy with my new set and thought I would share it with you. Not all of our lives (quite clearly) are dominated by crafts, so I thought you might be interested to see what has come into my life lately. Now I will need to post some photos of the food I will be putting on these dishes in the future!
