~Just a little Mildred.... Mount Clemons pattern...

I actually came across some Mildred - Mount Clemons pattern - on my recent adventures. I brought home 3 platters and a few small berry size bowls to add to my odd ball set.
Though none of it in minty condition. So it matched what I have pretty well. Since I manage to wash most of the gold trim off, in the dishwasher, with the stuff I have had forever. 
I still love the looks of this Mildred pattern. I love that it manages to use pink, blue, yellow and green in the pattern. So I can mix it up with other patterns for a table setting. I have been using them on the weekends for serving breakfast. Since I dug it out of the boxes last Fall.

Of course I can not stop myself from bringing home random pretty bowls. Pretty bowl's with pink flowers...
These are also small sized bowls. And fit into the Mildred ones perfectly. So I rationalized their purchase that way. "They match so well in size!" 

These pretty girls are by Homer Laughlin. It is their "Dogwood" pattern. So I suspect they will not be an issue with finding more of them. Homer made a sh*t load of china over the decades. And it all seems to be plentiful. Maybe I will build a nice set of this cute pattern

With Thanksgiving coming up this week... I have dragged out my big green jadeite Fenton Hen for my center piece! She makes a great impression with the family, when covered in devil eggs...
I love this hen....  so sassy!

My mother had a Dogwood teapot, in which she made tea every day. It is now in my china cabinet. The other pattern is so pretty too!
