our vintage plate set

Ten years ago on May 6th my husband and I were married and guess where we honeymooned...Iowa. Yes, how exotic you're saying. Guess what we did...went to thrift shops. We found this wonderful set of plates. They are mid-century modern and SO COOL!

This weekend we were in Seward, Nebraska, yet another exotic hot spot, and found salad plates, cups, and saucers to go with our dinner plate.

Don't they look nice all together at last!

Still working on getting stuff cleared out and ready for my new studio. It's kind of sad not to be painting. I feel a bit lost without it. In the end it will be worth the wait.

I'm a little sad that I probably won't have the walls repaired and painted and the light fixture changed before I move in, but at least I will have a space to call my own...finally. You guys have no idea how long I have waited for this!! I'm sure many of you can relate! :)

Well, back to the mess!


  1. yes! cool dishes- and it's great you were able to find some matching pieces!!

  2. Love the dishes, great retro feel & I love the colors.

    I revamped my studio last summer so I know what you mean about feeling lost without it. How great it is to have it finished and functional. It's a magical place.

    Hope your studio is ready soon & you get to enjoy your very own workspace :)
