I looked for the post I did in Amerika Samoa about these dishes. I had taken an eight place setting with me and these dishes you see here are the ones that were left behind in storage. So as you can see, I have easily a 16 place setting.
My very first garage sale I found the desert plate for 25 cents....I just loved it. For four years I collected these dishes. At the risk of repeating myself, these were Diamond Shamrock Premiums...you were given stamps for however much gas you used and in return you could turn the stamps in for dishes. I don't really know how old these are but I think the premiums went out in the 70's...not sure. If somoeone can help me with the answer, that would be great.
I just loved these little angels that Tudy, Tudy's Craft Cupboard, made.... Don't you just love them???
She also does awesome stitchery, and has in the past given me a few pointers. If you haven't been to her blog....it is a must see.
Got these fabrics from Burgandy Buttons...I was floored at how fast I got them...not like waiting weeks in Amerika Samoa.
My niece Toni gave me these beautiful fabrics for Christmas.
I also was so delighted when I won 3 patterns over at The Pickled Dish Patch. If you haven't been over to visit Vicki, you really need to go. She is so creative in her designs. Check out her store and patterns. I hope to have one of the patterns that I chose done real soon..when I do, I will post it then.
