Show and Tell: Dishes

I haven't been on Show & Tell for awhile. Things have been just a little crazy between travel, birthday parties, baby showers, and a house that looks like a hurricane went through.

Today I want to show you something in my kitchen:

My Helper!

Mo has started saying more new words than I can keep up with! "Cook" is one of his favorites.
Ok now for the items in my home. I've mentioned before my dishes. I love them! My sister-in-law picked them up at a yardsale for me. I started out with 8 bowls, 8 saucers, 8 sandwich plates, and 8 dinner plates.

But, I'm a clutz and have broken two of the sandwich plates and a bowl. Kaia broke at least two of the saucers, and Mo has now broken a sandwich plate.

Now I do love these dishes, but my dream kitchen is a retro turquoise and red. So I wonder if I should try to replace the broken dishes, or when I do decide to buy new dishes, just yardsale what is left of this gorgeous set.

Now why the attempt to find replacements is so difficult:

If you know what manufacturer that is, please tell me! Also knowing who owned the set before me, I'm pretty sure these are pricey, and I probably would be able to buy a whole new set for the cost of a few pieces of this.

Thanks for stopping by!

I wish our little guys could get together: Red Chief loves to "gook" too.

I'm thinking about new dishes, too. I wish I could help you with yours, but I'm pretty clueless about marks and things like that.

My mom always just bought a huge set of cheap dishes every couple of years, and then when we broke enough, she'd just go and get some more. We're all klutzy, so it worked well. She boxed up some of the leftovers and I'm using them now!

Your little helper is adorable and I love your dishes too. I'm awful about breaking plates and glasses, I hope you are able to find replacements someday!

Your dishes are so sweet. I don't know the manufacturer I'm afraid. And your helper is such a big boy!

I love your little helper. I have one at home and one in training...I guess we better take advantage of it now because when they get older they might not be so thrilled helping mom. :)

Those plates are beautiful! And from a garage sale of all places! Hope you can find replacements!

Mo is just as cute as can be and I'm sure he loves to help you. I hope you find your replacement pieces.
