Let’s Dish. . .Americana Style!

I have a confession to make.  I think I have a tiny bit of a dish addiction.  I love so many different types of dishes, both old and new.

So it’s no surprise that when it comes to the 4th of July dishes that they are no exception.

I have them out on display for the month of July.  Not only are they pretty, but they are handy to grab.  Stars, stripes, and polka dots.  Such a fun combination.

I love when a collection just comes together.  I had the two large plates and bowl.  One day I ran across the salad plates and the heart bowl at a thrift shop.

My star cake stand is fun for both July and Christmas.  Love my plump little Uncle Sam!

Happy Red, White, and Blue!

Fun to see your patriotic dishes. Great idea to keep them out for decor and handy access for summer use with all the patriotic holidays May to September. You've found some great pieces. My favs are the stars and stripes bowl and plate and the star studded heart bowl. Happy 4th of July! ~ Sarah

What a fun collection of Americana dishes you have. I'm dying to get my hands on those adorable cupcake plates. I did score on four vintage pie dessert plates today at the local Goodwell, eay excited to put those out.
