52 Posts / 52...yeah, that's tired already. Easy Living baby. Russel & Mary Wright had it right. Unfortunately finding the dinnerware cheap ain't Easy! Status: headed for the china cab.
Summertime...and the living's...Easy...
Sigh, Summer is so gone. The seasons are a changing. Time to Change the China! Well, rotate the china anyway.
Found this lot at the Kenrick Antique Mall over the weekend. Nice little haul for $95. Not the best deal in the world but not too shabby either. I might have passed it up but for picking up a setting for 6 at the Belleville Flea Mkt. a couple months ago. The tea kettle is a nice addition. Needed the salad plates too.
I already had a set of 6 handled bowls, but before this haul most of my Russel Wright dinnerware was in Chartreuse and it's nice to have some of the complimentary colors. That's one of the great things about the American Modern dinnerware line. Collecting is easier since you don't have to try to find all the same colors. They all go with each other.
Picked up the Covered Dish and the Grey Divided Serving Dish at a local annual sale here in St. Louis called the Gypsy Caravan. Got them cheap too. I think I paid $15 for the pair. I think the Grey Tea Kettle came from the Goodwill while we were on vacation last Spring.
