I have been collecting cremeware for sometime now but I don't have as many pieces as I'd like to have. I wanted a real "statement piece" to go on my dining room table and I lucked up Monday in one of my favorite flea markets and found a wonderful soup tureen. It's huge! While it's not the "real deal" I fell in love with it and since it had been marked down quite a bit, I went ahead and got it. While out shopping, I found two 36" mahagony shelves at Ross for $10.99 each! I will use those on a big wall to display some of my cremeware. Well, now, since I have those shelves, I gotta have some "stuff" to put on them, right? Today I went around to some of those great places like Marshalls, T.J. Maxx and Ross (again) and loaded up. I don't have pictures of those yet cause I put them in my closet for later (I know some of ya'll do this too)!
All of the photos below are of the plates and other items I have just stacked on my sideboard for now....not necessarily "decorated" but just put out so I could see what I have.
I got these pretty little oval dishes at Old Time Pottery for a song...I love the edges. They are just placed on one of my cake plates
When I took the crystal candle holders and candles off the dining room table, I put the candles in this urn for the time being but I kinda like the way they look there
The plates on the bottom match one of my cake plates
Here's a view of the sideboard and cremeware
I would love to start painting the dining room by this weekend but it all depends on the "molding guy". Keep your fingers crossed he can get to my project soon.
I promise to post some pictures of our cruise to Mexico soon. We were so tired when we got home Saturday that we just crashed. Then Sunday I spent with my mom and then the grandkids and their parents came by for a little while. Pictures soon..............
