The dishes for the month of June are called delphite.
They are Fire King like the jadeite that I have.
They are baby blue.
I have six dinner plates, two bread or salad plates, eight saucers, two cups, and a vegetable bowl.
I don’t have a lot of them, but enough for Big Ran , Madi, and me.
I am on the lookout for more of these.
I added my two blue goblets to the mix just for fun.
Check out my other blog www.justrestingup-home.blogspot.com.
I put a post on earlier today.
Here is the 2nd set of dishes that I bought from the ladies at the church in my home town.
I got a set of six again.
This set came with clear, glass, dessert goblets.
They are just as beautiful as the 1st set and very similar to them.
I plan on combining them on occasion.
They are dinner plates, salad plates, cups and saucers, and dessert goblets.
Ooooh, the possibilities!
The dessert goblets are so dainty.
Thank you ladies of the church and Valerie!!
I will put these to good use.
These dishes are a small part of a set from the Methodist church in my home town.
The church membership has dwindled down over the years and they are going through the extra things that they don’t need anymore.
So……………since I am such a dish freak I bought a set for my family.
I got a set of six. Dinner plates, salad plates, dessert bowls, cups, and saucers.
Aren’t they beautiful??
I think this set looks fabulous with my gold ware.
This dessert bowl looks to me like it needs some ice cream in it.
They are labeled with Thompson.
I bought another set from them, too. But that’s for next month!

Yesterday after church we all went to my daughter, Kamille’s house for dinner.
She had a great spread.
Oven fried chicken, roasted potatoes, asparagus, rolls, rice with mushrooms, it was all very good.
As I mentioned before in an earlier post, I took her set of dishes that I collected for her over the years to her.
Here is the cakeplate underneath this banana cake with peanut butter frosting that I made.
Here is the recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter or shortening
1 cup milk
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 mashed bananas
1 pkg of banana pudding mix
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream sugar and shortening until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.
Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating just to combine.
Finally, stir in vanilla, mashed bananas, and banana extract.
Pour batter evenly between two greased 9 inch round cake pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
2 sticks of butter, room temperature
1 cup of smooth peanut butter.
4 cups of powdered sugar
Up to 2 Tbs milk
In an electric mixer cream together the butter and peanut butter until smooth and fully incorporated.
Add the powdered sugar a cup at a time and use milk to adjust the consistency to your liking.
It was pretty good, too.
