It's hard to believe it is Thursday again. Luckily, I have been inspired by some lovely old dishes in my china cabinet. What better for winter, and more winter, than pink! I am not normally a "pink" person, but I just love these vintage dishes. Hopefully, these pretty pink dishes will bring a smile to those of you with never-ending snow:-)
These dishes belonged to my great-great uncle on my mother's side and some came from my father's grandmother. They were made by the Hazel-Atlas Glass Company, which you can read about HERE. The pattern is "pink crinoline" and also comes in blue.
One *must* use doilies with these, don't you think? I love these beaded handles.
What better for a winter day than sunny pink hydrangeas!
My mom gave me this pitcher last Christmas, and it fits in so perfectly!
How lucky was I to find these vintage linen placemats in my collection?
Since I only have three bowls, I used two pink crinoline and two pink Hocking "Old Colony" depression glass bowls.
Of course, I must have something by Minton, so this bowl was perfect for the flowers!
These vintage candle holders are from the 1970s. I love the green with this shade of pink.
I did have to borrow these vintage napkins from my mom. They really are exquisite.
The flatware is Oneida "Meadowbrook" silverplate. I love how the vines coordinate with the placemats.
I hope this "happy" pink crinoline has brought some sunshine to some snowy days!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I love getting to see the beautiful tables you so lovingly put together and reading your comments.
