  1. My-oh-my-oh-my!!! What an absolute steal you got….they are beautiful, just beautiful!! I would have bought them, too, in a heartbeat! Even at Christmas, I can see these beautiful dishes glimmering and shimmering with reflection from Christmas lights! I am so happy for you as I’m a dishoholic, too…just cannot beat a pretty table setting like that.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you enjoyed it, Karolyn!

  2. What a find! I’m green with envy – I never get lucky like that. I love green depression ware but I have only a few pieces because usually the prices are high and I don’t often come across it. It’s absolutely perfect for a garden party. Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I felt pretty lucky for this one! Fun to play with pretty dishes:)

  3. Lora those dishes are gorgeous what a great find!!! I love the colors and perfect for a little garden party! Was so fun hopping with you today!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Nicolle!

  4. Wow zero what a bargain! They are stunning. ❤️

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Pamela!

  5. You are so blessed to have found these beautiful dishes, thanks and have fun.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks; yes, very happy to have found them!

  6. YES! Dishes!!!! And you’re right — that was a fabulous find. I’m so glad that they found their way to someone who would love them, care for them, use them and gloat about them to the rest of us (lol)! I’m so glad you came hopping with the Fabulous Friday Team.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Diane! Fun day of inspiration!

  7. Hi Lora- Your depression glass is beautiful! I can’t believe you found such a large stash and at some amazing prices. Your rustic garden party setting looks perfect. As an aside, Bridal Veil is also one of my favorite flowering shrubs.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Anna! I love all the Spring flowers; so sweet. My bridal veil is ready to pop any day!

  8. You know that I love all of your vintage junk!! You always have such good luck finding cool stuff.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Jennifer; I love the hunt!

  9. What a great post Lora. I am like you and have a very hard time turning down a good buy and what a buy you got!!! The green dishes are stunning. Your Bridal Veil spirea is so pretty as well as the lovely table you set. Love the chargers too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for including me in the hop, Wendy! Such beautiful inspiration:)

  10. Hello, Lora! I can not believe you got all of those pretty green dishes for $18! What luck! They are perfect for a garden party tablescape! All of the vintage touches and the aprons on the back of the chairs add such a fun and festive feel that’s perfect for Spring or Summer!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Donna. Always fun to play with pretty dishes!

  11. Lora, can I come with you on your next adventure? WOW! What an absolute steal. I would have fainted at those prices. My husband and I were keeping an eye on an online auction recently and had to pass on the depression dishes, they were just going for too much. I have so many ideas now for an outdoor garden party, loving those nail aprons! Those sweet bird planters are a favorite, I have one that is very similar to yours. Thank you for sharing your inspiration, it was so nice hopping with you today.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, green depression is usually out of my price range, but I’ve always loved it; very happy find! Glad you got some ideas!

  12. Oh my goodness what an amazing find! Wow I would love to find something so precious. You truly brought it to life and it looks so beautiful in your tablescape!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Crystal!

  13. STOP IT!!!! That’s CRAZY!!! I love the color of those dishes Lora…they are so pretty!!! What a deal you got on those! This is a super fun post. I LOVE all of your ideas!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Green is my favorite color…and I had to really hold myself back from buying more of them at that sale. My cupboards are happy I didn’t buy more;)

  14. Hi Lora, I love this idea and am going to share it in a round-up of green in home decor this week on the blog!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful, Ann! Thanks:)

  15. Kari at Me and My Captain says:

    Hi Lora…I have collected depression glass for years and have a complete 8 piece setting in the Green Cameo, pink cabbage rose, yellow Florentine, blue bubble glass and many others. You definitely got a bargain with your set.
    I would like to personally invite you to link up with our CYS link party on Monday’s at 8 pm. http://www.meeandmycaptain.com . We feature three posts and you get more exposure.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Your dishes sound heavenly, Kari! I will pop over and check it out; thanks for the invitation!

  16. What a great find. If I ever find a bargain like that, I’m gonna grab it and run! I would love to mix green and pink with vases of apple blossoms–some day! I have a pretty good set of marigold Federal Bouquet and Lsttice going; the dinner plate is a large grill plate and great for holiday meals so the gravy doesn’t run over onto the table cloth. We KNOW who the slob is at MY house. It was seldom my kids! Your post was definitely a touch of spring; I am battlling winter blahs! Tried 2 need recipes this a.m.; that may be a help!

  17. What a great find! I love those too. Thanks for sharing at the To Grandma’s House We Go link party.

  18. We really are kindred spirits–I’ve started several posts with “My name is Cecilia and I am a Dishaholic!” SWOON! I could have pinned every image and did several 😉 Love the green glass, your wonderful signs and that gorgeous bridal veil! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!

    1. Yes, Cecilia! We can be the founders of the first ever Dishaholics Anonymous or the first stars of a reality TV show, “Dish Hoarders”! Some say when you add, you should take something away, but I love them all! The ladies that come to my estate sale will be so happy;)

  19. I love your dishes. I don’t have room to start collecting dishes but I wish I did. I do have an old black typewriter though.

    1. Lucky you, Debra! I’m honestly running out of room for all my dishes;) Hubby jokes that I could feed the 5000! But where there’s a will, there’s a way-I’ll find a spot (or just get another cupboard;)

  20. Cheryl Jarl says:

    My short list of “still to find”- portable typewriter & black scale. Side note- I like to pair my green depression with my green/cream relief pattern of Oven Serve Ware.

    1. Hope we aren’t together when we find that black typewriter! 😉 I do love the green/cream relief pattern of the ovenware too, but tend to enjoy it more in the fall with pottery pieces. Dishaholics anonymous just called…

      1. Carol Matthews says:

        Oh Lora! I am ‘green’ with envy! I’ve just purchased my first green depression glass plates and am looking for more dishes to go with them. Yours are beautiful!
        I’m a dishaholic too – so I’ll be following your blog now that I’ve found it! Thanks for the fun and inspiration.

        1. Lora Bloomquist says:

          So excited to welcome another dishaholic to the blog, Carol! This spring I just added 3 more sets! My aching cupboards are complaining! You’re in good company around these parts! Have fun with those green dishes!
