Meet Edith & Martin (Rednesday Wednesday)

A couple of Summers ago while I was out on a Saturday morning hitting up all the neighborhood sales I came across Edith and Martin. I found this sweet couple on a table for $2.00. I can't imagine why anyone would want to sell them but I was more than happy to buy them and give them a new home.

I thought they might enjoy joining Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for her Rednesday Wednesday Blog Party!

What beautiful lashes she has....
My Mamaws name was also Edith, she passed away when I was young and I miss her greatly. 

Martin in his bowtie....

I'm sure they will enjoy a wonderful Valentines Day Dinner!


  1. A lot of my friends' mothers had these plates when I was growing up in the 60's. I always wanted a set, never did get around to getting them! I don't see them advertised anymore. xo

  2. My Mothers name was Edith and so was my sister who passed away.

  3. A lovely couple I must say--they are really cute. Happy Rednesday.

  4. Those plates are so cute! I am so glad you saved them and gave them a great new home! You have a cute blog!

  5. What a simple but adorable post!!!!

  6. Oh Aledia I use to have some plates just like that but without the names on them. And I put it with the gingham too. Goodness that was years and years ago and you just brought so many fond memories to me. I STILL love gingham and it will be in my heading soon. Its just always so fresh and clean and almost comforting. I LOVE your vignettes with the beaters and cupcake papers in that darling container. Just too cute!!!

    A big thankyou for coming to my blog and commenting on my dessert just a few minutes ago. That just means so much to me. It really is delcious so I hope you get to try it some time soon.



  7. So Cute! I love those plates and the vignette you've created. Have a great week. XO Cindy
