Marcrest Swiss Alpine Dishes

I first stumbled upon the Marcrest Swiss Alpine pattern on Etsy - and immediately fell in love. I quickly snatched up a set of 4 bread and butter plates. Of course, Pat thought it was silly, and I don't have much room in my tiny kitchen, so I left it at that.

Well. The other day I came across this set in the vintage shop MomWaldsPlace. It was such a good price that I just couldn't resist.Look at all the pieces included! I cannot wait to get them! Of course, buying this means that I've now started a collection (how exciting!). So I figured I might as well search Etsy and add all the pieces I could find to my favourites - for future reference.

That's when I entered the shop SparklePower ... this shop was my undoing. Not only was there a large serving bowl listed but there was also a set of creamer, sugar dish and tea pot. OH NO WAY!!! These pieces are fairly rare, especially as a set......... I had to. Aren't they adorable? And this teapot! I mean, I already have a perfectly fine teapot (with a really cute cozy), but this one is part of my collection! I really like it's funky shape.Of course, I may as well add in the serving bowl while I'm at it! I mean, I was already getting a large box shipped, what's another little piece. Oh boy - and I just snatched up this little pitcher from mamak - I've never seen anything like it!I'm thrilled with my purchases - I really can't wait to get them! I hope they're handled carefully by the postal workers and arrive in one piece though. Now, over the next couple of weeks, I'll have to go through my cupboards and make some room!

those are so cute! I saw something similar at a garage sale in Verner this past weekend - but they were red and orange. not sure if it was the same thing, but looks similar at least.
