These are my brown transferware Thanksgiving dishes passed down to me from my mother. She collected them in the early 1950′s. They are from Salem College in Winston Salem, NC. The dishes are made by Wedgewood and I’ve never known anyone else who collects them. Each of the plates has a different scene from the campus of this college. I would love to have more but fear they are out of my price range.
They are displayed in my china hutch until Thanksgiving when I pull them out and decorate the table. I have collected various patterns of white dishes to go with them.
When my kids left to go home after a great weekend celebrating Mr. Delicious birthday, I rearranged the living room. The sofa faces the fireplace and what will be the Christmas tree to the left.
It is so cozy when the fire is crackling.
I happened to look out my front door at about 4pm today. My front yard is a carpet of leaves. The peak was last week and now the raking begins. The permit on the tree below is for my shed we are building out back.
Thay all have to be raked! There is new grass under those leaves.
