Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Thanksgiving Dishes

Before we go completely into Christmas mode I want to show you my Thanksgiving dishes. I found the first five at a thrift store. I found the rest on ebay. I have about fifteen dinner plates and a gravy boat plus a few small bowls and bread plates.



They're called Indian Summer by Franciscan. I just love them.



I think they look really cute with these miss matched napkins that I made.

I have never seen that pattern! They are perfect for autumn and Thanksgiving and they would look great with those pretty napkins:>)

Awesome! At first I thought that was the old fashioned melmac...they are "your" style for sure.
Matching plates are always fun to collect.

I love your dishes! And the mis-matched napkins are the frosting on the cake. Unfortunately, our hostess served dinner on paper plates - not so nice!

Mimi, I love your dishes and you are so cool to make your napkins. I never think of that.

Are we on for this Friday? Meeting at "Just a bed of Roses" at 11:00 o/clock - then any where we want. Lunch next door?

I like those "fall" dishes. I have the Desert Rose pattern by Franciscian that got handed down to me from my mom. I use them for every day dishes, but they don't go too good for Thanksgiving, lol.

I'm trying to catch up on blogs and not leave comments so I can see everything everyone has done. But I can't not say "ooohhhhh" when I saw these dishes. They are so lovely I said it out loud.
