Fabulous Fall Dishes

Some women like jewelry and clothes, but me? I like dishes...

Now that fall is in full swing the pastel dishes are packed away and the subtle colors of autumn come out. This is a mismatched set; I found the plates years ago. The bowls came from a thrift shop and the bread and butter plates I found a few weeks ago.








Don't you just love these guys? They are hand carved and painted by local Michigan woodcarver and folk artist Marlene Dusbiber. Marlene carves beautiful birds, santas and other folk items. I have had these wonderful guys for several years and they are fall favorites.




The glass on left is Fostoria, a gift from my Godmother. They were the glasses she picked out when she got married in the late 1940's. I can't tell you how much it means to me that she gifted them to me.












  These guys are ready to eat....

Does anyone else change out their dishes seasonally, or am I the only crazy one???

I love those dishes! Can't say that I've ever switched dishes seasonally, but I have had several sets going at one time with very different patterns & colours. I'd match them to my mood of the day - guess I'm crazy too!! lol

KP said...

I guess by default I change dishes seasonally..literally,I am the perveyor of the storage dish packs!

How can you be crazy, with such beautiful plates and dishes..They are so lovely.
I only replace a set, when i am truly tired of it.
But i do change my dishes during christmas and easter-
I love to decorate my table with my festive plates.
your table looks divine.. Your little birds add a touch of elegance, and something different.
I liked this blog.

Beautiful dishes..and yes...
my table it set all the time....

why? because it frees up more space in my shelves for MORE dishes

I do change for seasons...I have to stay out of Crate n Barrel this holiday...or build more shelves.

Have a great day!

These are all gorgeous plates! I can't believe how well the Vernon Kilns go with the Johnson Brothers pattern you're using. Wow! I love the color!
I've always like those Meakin bread plates to. I used to have a set of that and have a few pieces in my shop that are blue.

The turkey and pheasant are adorable!

Your table is so inviting and the china is lovely for Autumn. I love the glassware too! How nice to have your godmother's goblets! The birds are wonderful and such a whimsical touch on the table.
I used to change my dishes out for each season but I have given away my Autumn set to make room for more Rose Chintz. :) We do what we have to do! Thanks so much for your visit and I wish you a delightful weekend, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi
