Hi, I'm Holly!  Welcome to cutie pie cottage

Hey there blog friendies!
I went to my local antique mall after physical therapy and bought some blue melmac to match my pink!
Melamine, melmac, whatever you call it, I love it and I love the click clacking sound that it makes!
I took 43 pics and these were the 3 finalists!

Have started crafting for spring/Easter yet?
I've only started decorating but I want to make an egg wreath for the frame on the porch.
I'm finally taking my ornament wreath down today and hopefully, the empty space will motivate me!
Winter is almost over, friends!
Hang in there!

Those melmac colors are perfect for your house.

Vicki of Ranger 911 posted her sweet dining room the other day and she had the cutest children's tea set on display in your colors. The tea set was from Walmart. I thought of you when I saw the colors.

I have a few prices of Melmac, too. I think they are darling!

We called it melmac. Your's are so pretty. The colors are dreamy. I don't usually decorate for Easter. I'm still taking down Christmas! Twyla

Those are super sweet! I love the sound that it makes too. I'm glad I'm not the only one out there:) The photos are great! Have a wonderful week.

Love those colors! I still have some of my Grandma's. Hers were light green and the plates were white with green ivy on them. I love them!

I have a few pieces of pink and purple melmac. I love it, too!

Oh, I love the pink and aqua together! So, so sweet. Perfect for Spring!

Patti said...

Yep, aqua Melmac is what my mom had. Then she radiated to Corelle! It was lightweight. That's what I like about it! Nice pics!

I love that you took 43 pictures. That makes me smile. Such pretty colors. I'm definitely ready to drag out the Easter and spring decor.

Melissa said...

I love the melmac! One of these days I'd like to have a full set that has a lovely floral pattern on it.
I'm not sure I believe you about winter...seems like it's never going away! : )

Love pink and aqua together, and when it's melmac....bonus! I grew up with melmac but of course didn't appreciate it 'til much later. Nowadays I have a real hard time passing it up!

Hope all is well with you and your family. I haven't blogged in awhile but I've been busy. Maybe when it gets warm and the snow finally melts I can take some pics of my finds!

Have a great weekend!

I love it too, and have a few serving bowls, one in pink and one in blue and some blue cups. It's fun to find it and you are one lucky gal to come across it. I bought mine on Ebay.
Hugs, Lynnie

Jill said...

So pretty - my Melmac collection consists of four little side plates, I use them all the time!
