Well my friends, have you ever accidentally collected something without even trying?
That's exactly what I have done with this cabinet full of blue and white dishes.
I'm sorry that the photos aren't the best. It's in my basement, and kind of a dark day. I should have taken them this morning, but I headed out the door early.
It started off when I found a set of 4 pretty plates, saucers, and cups. As many of you know, I collect cherry dishes for my basement kitchen. Because my hoosier is edged in blue I thought it might be fun to mix some blues in now and then.
Really didn't plan to pick up anymore blue and whites. But then, I spied this cute little coffee pot on a stove and some bowls with what else? None other than cherries.
Saucers and cups that matched the plates.
Gosh, I have a love for enamelware so when I spied this coffee pot one day I couldn't pass it up.
Oh, and we all could use a creamer, right? :)
And Pyrex, can't leave that sitting on the thrift shelf! And more plates. Each one is unique and sweet!
If one creamer is good, how about two, or three? Especially if one is a cow.
Now the pitcher and bowls with the stripe I have had for years. Just when I started gathering everything together to fill this cupboard after Christmas I knew they needed to be included.
Even the Morton Salt girls know that when it comes to collections, sometimes when it rains it pours!
This sweet teacup was today's find.
See the pretty platter? I found that on Tuesday. I was surprised to find that it was tin when I picked it up.
My friend, Amanda gifted these little cuties to me a few weeks ago.
I may not have intentionally collected blue and white dishes, but somehow I've managed to do it anyway. lol!
On the top right now is another unintentional collection of browns.
This cabinet is where I usually house my collection of plaid thermoses and tins. I'll be pulling them back out for summer.
I plan to sell at the vintage sale, "Fleology" in May. Wondering if I should just box all this up and take it to the sell? That way I can keep on treasure hunting. The hunt is as much fun as the find!
Have you got an accidental collection?
