|4th of July China Display|
I changed my hutch to a 4th of July display. My Welsh Dresser is giving my lots of chances to finally figure out what sort of china I have stashed and hidden in the basement.
(If I tuck my rummage sale finds in the corner of the basement where my husband won't end up tripping over them, then I can accumulate finds guilt free and have). I have been buying treasure for nearly a decade now... ;)

The stars and stripes set of china in this display I found at the end of the day at a church or school rummage sale. The "end of the day" at a church/school rummage sale is when china sets marked $20+ that haven't sold can get knocked down to $5-$10 for the set. (I vaguely recall paying $8.)
My family and I use this set around this time of year, so I kept 6 dinner plates out of the display for everyday use, and I was able to. The pattern is 'Colonial' by Warren Kimble, Sakura from 1997.

The blue edged plates with gold stars pattern, (4 large plates in this display) is another rummage sale set I found. The pattern, "Galaxy" is also by Sakura. [I only realized that both sets are from Sakura just now as I am writing this blog post!] This novelty set was sold by the Target store chain several years ago, and I now have seen the set in multiple rummage sales. (I know Target sold the sets because I saw the ad for the sets in some old decorator magazines I have.)
The vintage stemware I bought for $1 a stem or less. I purchased the clear stemware because of the gold rim - it really adds to the look, I think.
I am kind of loving mixing the new plates with the older antique plates, which are my real loves. Writing out what each of the plates are would get boring, but I will mention one other plate - the crazy white one with red stripes cost me 49 cents at good will.
Have a blessed 4th of July and enjoy your family!
