The Story of the Flag Dishes

My friend J found these dishes in a kitchen consignment store in Omaha-The Pot and Ladle.

J had them  packed and moved with her when she relocated to Florida.

And then she wrapped them in bubble wrap and  packed them herself in about eight boxes and shipped them to me in Pittsburgh.

When your birthday is the Fourth of July, people see red white and blue and think of you.

Last night I had house guests so got up and baked blueberry muffins with a container of greek yogurt (vanilla) and used one of the American Colonial plates (designed by Warren Kimble in 1997) When I looked up Warren Kimble it said he is “the best known living American Folk Artist”

(noticed I used the red, white and blue potholder I wove a few years ago)

  1. Lovely photo Ruth! I was an amateur at packing and shipping dishes, but I think not one broke! I can’t believe it. The Pot and Ladle is one of the best consignment shops I’ve ever visited – their tagline is “for people who love to cook or entertain”.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
