Expensive Dishes

I went to pick up my dishes today from the store I visited the other day.  The gal had them all nicely packed and waiting for me.  I could hardly wait to get them home!

They remind me of Fiestaware, but in pastels.  I am normally not a pastel person, but I am smitten by these dishes.  As usual, it is the shape.  See the petal shape of the cups?  These dishes are often called Petalware, but I think technically they are named Georgette, made by WS George in Ohio.

These dishes were very reasonably priced.  After searching Ebay and other sites….. I know they were reasonable.  But …..

…..on the way to get them I was stopped at a state patrol safety check stop.  License, insurance, registration, inspection…… check check check OOPS.  That oops cost almost twice what the dishes did!

Appointment made for Monday to get inspection, will go pay the judge on Tuesday.

Good thing I still like those dishes!

Here is our courthouse.  I took pics because I happened to have my camera in the car and the sky was pretty behind the rotunda.  Maybe next time I go there I will take pictures of the inside.

Maybe next time they will have the funds (from all of us who got tickets today) to fix the damn clock!  I spose if it is correct twice a day, that is good enough for the government?

    I am wondering, since this purchase was 4 years ago, if you might be interested in selling any pieces? They are lovely!

      No, BB, I really don’t want to sell any. I have added quite a few more pieces since buying these. Are you looking for something in particular?

    No, I just love the dishes and have recently purchased a few pieces on-line because I rarely find anything in this pattern in thrift shops or antique stores. I live in NM. I don’t know if that is a factor. I have to say I bought 7 dessert plates recently and they have gone a long way in satisfying my craving.
    Thanks for your reply.
