  1. I love all of your ideas! I aspire to being a dishaholic, too! My “worst” collection is thedishes with old pink roses! But a few violets and forget me nots have snuck in, too! Last fall I added the tin lettered “Thankful” to a forget me not platter which is hanging on a cupboard door.

      Those sound beautiful, Kathy! I love a whole table set with all different flowered plates; just like a garden!

  2. So many pretty ideas! I really love the individual glasses with bloom in the window. makes me wish that I had a sink at the kitchen window. I have that same bread box!

  3. You have such a beautiful collection!!! I am completely loving the Easter egg plates with ribbons!!! soooo cute and so dang creative!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Emily:)

  4. ohmygosh, luncheon sets! When I was young it seemed we had a bridal or baby shower from church at least every other week, and we borrowed other sets from friends. I love all your wonderful ideas Lora. Dishes in an old birdcage is one I don’t think I’ve tried yet. Adorable! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

      Thanks, Debra! I’ve always loved luncheon sets:)

    I loved all the displays Such good ideas.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you enjoyed the ideas, Stephanie!

  6. Well I think we could both be in the same meeting/group but I don’t hold a candle to you! But you have accomplished your quest because I’m going to buy more plates starting in two weeks when I go to Round Top Antique Fair! Woo hoo! I think if I start talking about your collection then maybe the Mister won’t ask me where I plan to store the ones I bring home. LOL!
    So glad you could join us and that this one was “easy” for you. 😉

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Just tell the Mister you’re trying to be biblical, able to feed the 5000;) So jealous you get to go to Round Top. Hope you’re going to be taking pics and sharing!

  7. Oh my gosh, the vintage trims on the oval platters are just beyond clever and cute. I had to pin it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you did, Laura! I just had to find an easy way to enjoy all those lovely vintage trims:)

  8. Lovely! I too am a dishaholic, I am tempted to shop estate sales but that would be dangerous. I have lots of storage but it is still an issue. I would love a dish rack in the kitchen, so pretty.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, estate sales can be very dangerous, Jillian, in so many ways;) But I still need to have fun a couple times of year!

  9. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Great ideas and you have some of the prettiest dishes, thanks and have a great weekend.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marlene!

  10. Such lovely displays. What is the pattern with the green border with flowers. It’s such a pretty pattern. I don’t need to be persuaded to buy more china because I have too much as it is. I love your styling. Adorable as usual.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, friend! It’s Flora Dora Green by Royal Doulton, and it’s our wedding china. My hubs said I picked the brightest pattern in all of Daytons (back when all the patterns were light and pastel-y). I told him all he’d care about was the food that was on the plate; I got to decide the pattern!

  11. I can’t even pick a favorite thing in this post. Everything is so beautiful. I love the dishes hanging on the wall, your seasonal staying, and the open shelving. So inspirational Lora. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you enjoyed it all, Kim!

  12. Lora you have the best ideas! I love the plate wreath and how you turned them into Easter eggs! Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Stacy! More ideas in my brain than my body can keep up with these days;)

  13. Rebecca Payne says:

    I love your displays and ideas. Where did you get Your bread container?

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you! It’s vintage and I got it at a church sale:)

  14. So many beautiful ways to use dishes in your Spring decor, Lora! I love all the different ways you’ve featured your fabulous collection from the little topiaries in cups to your gorgeous farmhouse shelves and that pretty plate wall wreath – it’s all totally fantastic. Love your style and your creativity too sweet friend. Hope your Spring is a special one. Hugs, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you for your sweet words, CoCo:) Always enjoy hopping with you!

  15. Lora you have so many beautiful ideas. I need to pull out dish racks after seeing yours. Have a great day. Pinned.
