Shopping for Roses

Hi there

I wanted to show a few dishes I have found at thrift shops and yard sales this summer/ I am trying to get as many as an eight pieces place settings.
I am going to set a table for a diner party and I want to use all vintage dishes with roses on them them have multi colored roses for a center piece or arrangement.
I now need a tea pot . I was lucky enough to find a sugar bowl and creamer same pattern at two different places. Gave $2.00 for creamer and $8.00 for sugar bowl  but since I knew I had the creamer I paid $8.00 .
I didn't get any pictures of my diner plates and don't want to go take more pictures now that I have started this post . Lazy ? when I set the table I will  show the diner plates.

sugar bowl


creamer to match,
 they have the name Empire  Bavaria on the bottom and the creamer has a lid too match the sugar bowl lid? I think this is the first creamer I have ever seen with a lid

wait a minute I looked on the bottom of the sugar and it's mark is R.S.A.G.Germany with a crown, so they don't match since made by different companies,

love this cup & saucer


these don't have roses but are so delicate and sweet

then this I am sure is 1960's do you remember seeing them back then ?

I found 2 of  these sweet little dessert bowls also at a thrift shop for 50 cents



  Then I was out at one of my favorite shops today The Market Place and one of the booths had a great price on this little cabinet I thought the rose dishes would look good in it however its to small to show them off very well , I had to stack them
It was priced $249.00 and was on sale for $53.50 , its in my dining room now full of thrift store dishes  



 Trying to do this post and watch the closing ceremonies  of the Olympics and thinking about wanting a pizza , LOL haven't had super yet .

love this picture, it's  in a book I was looking through this afternoon
