Today is Vintage Thingies Thursday. I love to visit all the other blogs and see what great thingies are out there. So much fun. Be sure to stop by Colorado Lady's blog and check them all out.
One of my favorite things to do is check out the thrift stores. Some days there are treasures to be found, and other times the pickings are slim. On a recent visit to the Goodwill, I always head for the housewares aisle first thing. I like to see if there are any lovely dishes or teacups calling to come home with me. As I entered the aisle with the dishes, my eyes went immediately to these RED dishes! I don't often see RED dishes in ANY thrift store. I LOVED them at first sight. They went right into my buggy for closer examination. And to top it off, they are Syracuse China USA!!!
I believe these are called Strawberry Hill. There were five dinner plates, three dessert plates and one small bowl. I searched and searched to see if there were any more, but this is all I could find. I even went back the next day, just in case there were more put out. But no more to be found.
Now check out how lovely these plates look with the pink compotes that I bought several months ago at an antique shop.
Even though I did not find any other pieces, my Buffalo china cups do a very nice job of rounding out the table scape.
So today my VTT is RED! And I'm lovin' them :-)
