Hi my friends,
For the past few years I have been picking up vintage wheat dishes. What started out as one wheat pitcher has grown into quite a collection.
The first items I found were these sweet yellow and white series. After showing them in a post last year, Sweet Wheat. (Click on it to check it out) One of my readers informed me that they use to come in laundry detergent. The glasses were a thrift find I gave to my youngest daughter. She gave them back to me when they recently moved to Spain.
Wheat is such an important grain. It’s has helped sustain life for centuries.
There’s nothing quite like the sight of a field of wheat.
Last year my sister, Julie found a set of wheat dishes at the D.I. in Price, UT. Knowing that I had been collecting them she called to see if I wanted them.
Even though they are not the same, for $30 I didn’t think I could go wrong.
I decided to set my Thanksgiving table with them. My hubby brought me the lace tablecloth from Panama. He served there for summer camp in the National Guard one year.
These are a fancier set than the white and yellow ones. Being the plain
Jann Jane that I am I dressed them down a little with bamboo place mats.
I have never been a lover of gold silverware. This is one time that It would look lovely.
For the centerpiece I used my cute little strawberry cart. It holds extra dishes and a white faux pumpkin. This works great because when the time comes to put all the food on the table it can be lifted off easily.
And what goes better with wheat dishes than wheat? This burlap covered pot sits in the cart also.
Other dishes that came with the set. These will hold mashed potatoes and cranberries.
A couple other wheat dishes that are white and yellow. I always love mixing things up.
The glasses are ones that I picked up at the $1 store a few years ago. It’s the sentiment that sold me on them. This is what they say: Family…Memories are made of this…smiles.laughter.hugs
And this is the pitcher that started it all.
I don’t know about my other American friends, but I can hardly wait to. . .bring on the turkey!
And on a more serious note, I thank the Lord for all of my many blessings!
I will be sharing with:
