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.

Let's Talk Turkey

Like so many of you I sort of have an addiction to dishes.  OK I totally have an addiction to dishes and in the fall some of my favorites come out of storage.  I showed you these plates last year and probably the year before. We use them for Thanksgiving dinner.  I bought a few at a thrift store and then added to the set through ebay.  They're Franciscan Indian Summer.

 Have you ever seen a calendar plate?  I love these plates and have a few.  I bought this one because of the turkey.  It's for the year 1941.
 More turkey plates...
  I have several turkey platters.  Love the hand painted colors.  See the little house in the background? That makes it extra cute.

 I do love plates of any kind but at this time of year out come the turkeys.

I really like that calendar plate. I don't think I've ever seen them before. What a significant year too!

I haven't seen the Indian Summer pattern, it's similar to my Franciscan Autumn! Love all your fun dishes!

Mimi, these are beautiful. What a wonderful collection you have!

I didn't know plate obsession was something others suffered from, too. I have a serious addiction, and often times come home with my arms full and no more places to lay the treasures. How many plate racks is too many? Anyway, LOVE your turkeys.

What a beautiful collection!!
Your little felt Christmas pillows turned out adorable.
And I was so sad to read about your little Rudy. He looks like an angel puppy in that picture. I hope your heart is mending.
