The lovely Melmac.... in Floral and Pink!

I really do enjoy buying Melmac. It really disturbs my Mother that I have plastic plates in my cabinet for daily use... she has hope that I never use them for company. :)  

These came in so many gorgeous patterns that they are hard to resist. 

Now granted, I say Melmac. But there were many companies that produced this stuff from the 1940's to now. Melmac is just the common word I use when talking about it. 

This sweet floral platter was made by Fostoria. It has the daintiest floral print. Done in pinks and turquoise. 
So pretty. Melmac with pink roses....

White roses and gold leaves.... 


Then I picked up random pieces of pink at a estate sale. All for a dollar... 


In the lot was the creamer, sugar, dinner plates, coffee cups and two big rectangular platters.





Then one small jadeite green bowl. Made by Texas Ware...


I wish there had been more of the Texas Ware... because it is a really pretty shade green. The one thing I have not seen, is drinking glasses, in Melmac. I know they were produced. But it looks as if they did not hold up for decades like the serving pieces did....

Be sure to take a peek at all the wonderful things at ~Sir Thrift A Lot's~
