My New Dishes

These are my new dishes:


Ok, so like my "new" sewing machine, the adjective is relative.  They are a (fairly old) set of Corelle plates (several), bowls (lots of bowls!), tiny bowls (a few), tiny plates, medium plates (a few), and I think I gave away a few mugs.  These were my grandpa's, and he died in early November.  Technically, they were his late wife's, I think, and she passed away over 10 years ago.  I'm not sure how 'new' these are after all. :)

But I love them.  They sit so snugly on the shelf, with such a nice, low profile.  There is no gold edging to entertain the kids when Daddy puts them in the microwave.  We *have* broken one already (in many, many tiny and oddly-shaped pieces!), but there are plenty left.  We are blessed to have these.  Plus, the price was right. :)

Pretty! I don't always like Corelle patterns but this one is really nice.

Rachel, thanks. It's actually NOT a pattern I would choose (I agree, most corelle patterns aren't that great) - my kitchen is ANY color but blue - but beggars can't be choosers and I'm grateful anyway! :)

These are my exact dishes. I love them but have not been able to find the same pattern. Mine are at least 20 years old. Wow, I'm dating myself here, and now I feel rather old. I have to sit down...

Gayle, well, if you're standing up while reading blogs, you're ahead of me already! :)

Maybe you should give me some contact information, in case I ever get another 'upgrade' in my kitchen and need to find these a new home..? I don't think I have an 'email me' link, but if you leave an email addy in the comments, I will have it without publishing it.

Blessings!
