A Few Of My Favorite Things Saturday

Welcome to Applejack Lane on this A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday.  I am a retired school teacher.  One of my first "school collections" was started by  hubby-ABC plates 

This is the first plate that started my collection.  Of course my MIL found it and suggested that he give it to me for Christmas...
My sister-in-law gave me this religious plate for Christmas one year...
Some can be small like this one only 5 inches in diameter...
Ben Franklin's maxims...
Tin plates...
Two alphabets share this plate...
A rabbit plate for Spring...
Special English mugs...
A creamer, bowl, and mug...
I have over 30 pieces to my collection and I still continue the hunt.
Thanks for joining me today.  Visit Bargain Hunting with Laurie for more Favorite Things Saturday and Chari with Sunday Favorites.

What a wonderful and personal collection you have. Isn't it amazing how seemingly disparate things can have a common thread. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

These little plates and cups are delightful! The sign language plate is very interesting. And oh my... is that Toad from Wind In the Willows dressed up like a washerwoman on that mug?
So cute!!

My friend, I was just elated to have you join in with the fun of the Sunday Favorites "One Year" birthday celebration this weekend! Welcome!!! What a great post to share for Sunday Favorites! It definitely deserved a second showing! Of course, I am a dishaholic and just love to see all the different kinds and types of dishes. I really enjoyed your alphabet plate and cup collection...you have so many nice pieces! I loved the bunny plate!
