|Says 'Melamine" on the back of the dishes.|
|I am busy decorating for Christmas , so this simple tablescape was put together in about 30 minutes! For the centerpiece I used a lamp that my mother bought in 1950 while visiting San Diego, Ca.|
|These are some 50's pink glasses with a cute gold birdcage theme.|
|Of course, plastic dishes need plastic silverware.|
|I collect vintage hot pads, so I added some of them to the tablescape.|
|And I threw in a Santa! (On the buffet, you can see a peek of the Putz glitter village I have been working on for Christmas!)|

You really did well on your trip to Muleshoe.ReplyDelete
I have lots of old Melamine/Melmac dishes that I have collected throughout the year. They are perfect for Summer barbecues! I am in love with that pink pitcher. It is definitely on my want list.ReplyDelete
Great find! When I was little we had "melmac" dishes which were the same - haven't seen them in years!ReplyDelete
What a fun find...you did a pretty table with them! I grew up eating off Melmac!ReplyDelete
Love the pink glasses!!ReplyDelete
I love the pink melamine plates and the pink vintage glasses are pretty with them. I like going to sales and antiquing and you certainly found a treasure at this one. When you mentioned Mule Shoe, Texas, I knew it was near Lubbock. My son is now living in Lubbock and we are driving there with my mother for Thanksgiving. He works for KCBD 11 as the weekend Sports Anchor and just loves Lubbock and being back closer to home for he is from Texas. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
