"Diane" Dishes


This week I am visiting my favorite consignment shop.

I come across "Diane"


Isn't she lovely!

Now I already have a 6pc place setting at home, but always wanted to increase it to an 8pc setting.

....what are the odds of that.....here it was.... a 2pc place setting up for sale.





I bought it immediately.




....and now you say....why, Diane that's your name.....




....and I say, yes it must be karma.....




The Wade Fine Porcelain China "Diane" set came with 
2 dinner plates, 2 bread/butter plates, 2 teacup and saucers, 2 dessert bowls and salt & pepper shakers.



....such a graceful pattern.

  6. I have these dishes! I bought them piece by piece in 1980 or 1981 as a premium at our local Affiliated grocery store. (If you bought a certain dollar amount you could buy the china piece for that week.) My grandmother, mother, sister, and I all bought them. I think my mother may have found some since at a garage sale. In January I used all of them at my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. The tables were beautiful if I do say so myself. Since then there were some at our local Goodwill. I didn't buy them and I have had some second thoughts about that.

    Your table is beautiful.

  12. Hi Diane,

    I'm your newest follower! I love your china; it's so gracful and elegant. My Mother-in-Law is also a Diane. How nice that you and your china have the same name. Mine is called "Juliet", but unfortunately, that's not my name. It looks like you live in a very nice area of Canada. Thank you for becoming a follower on my blog, and I look forward to seeing you on Tablescape Thursdays.
