Can you ever have too many blue dishes? You are going to love these 4 thrifted blue dishes I found on the 4th of July so much so, that I couldn’t resist sharing.
Oh, boy and was it an early 4th of July morning too. I was up at 5:00 AM to refresh my window booth down at The Vintage Soul before they opened up for the holiday.
See more about this booth in the post, How to Start a Vintage Booth Business.
That is where I spied these amazing 1995 Lotus blue china dishes, in another vendor’s booth.
And they had this same dishware collection in green, pink, and yellow too. I understood later that they had been used for a wedding.
Oh but that color blue…
And all I could picture were these bluer than blue dishes matching beautifully with our fire pit conversation set.
I have looked everywhere on the internet to find more of these plates for you to shop without any such luck.
So if you know anything about these 1995 Lotus china dishes please leave me a comment below. I’d love to hear from you!
4th of July
Did you have a nice 4th of July weekend?
We spent the holiday in peaceful Vermont in an effort to escape the large Coastal Maine crowds.
But before we did, we indulged in a simple, impromptu yet traditional backyard lobster dinner, which I didn’t get a chance to blog so here’s a little video for you to enjoy.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get much decorating done for the 4th this year, as we were only in Vermont for a few short days.
But my neighbor did drop by with these sweet flowers in mason jars, which we enjoyed on the porch.
And again later with some fresh lavender from their garden and homemade cookies to help us sleep. Did you know that the smell of Lavender helps you sleep, lowers anxiety, and your heart rate too?
How about that?
And the lavender even matched the thrifted blue dishes.
Cool evenings by the fire pit with my new blue dishes, priceless!
A very simple and peaceful 4th of July weekend. I couldn’t have asked for more!
Oh and Ella, our Bernese Mountain Dog wasn’t afraid of the fireworks this weekend either!

Your booth looks so pretty Ann! I would definitely be shopping it if I lived close to you! That was an early day. I hope you had a great 4th! I love blue dishes on the 4th of July and any other time for that matter. My favorite!
Hi! I have seen your blue plates before. They are by Lotus International Inc. of course I can’t rememer if I saw them in a store or recently when I have been out at Estate Sales, Red, White and Blue Thrift or Goodwill. If you are interested in having more – I would be happy to keep my eye out and pick them up for you. My friend Nick and I go to Estate Sales at least once a week and I try to hit the thrift stores weekly too. We have a booth in The Find Marketplace in Pilesgrove, NJ. We have been antiuqing for over 30 years (Nick has been going longer than me). Check http://www.shopgoodwill.com – they might have them on their just to get information about them. Shipping has become too expensive to get things for a “frugal” price (that our word for cheap!) Anyway, happy to help just let me know. Have a great weekend! Denise
Denise thank you for your beautiful note and generosity. I’m happy with my 4, I’m just curious to learn more about them as I couldn’t find anything online. Which never happens😂😂
I love your blue dishes and the area you can sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Thank you so much Marlene💙💙💙
