Acapulco [Aug. 6th, 2003|04:31 pm]

[mood |Gay]

Ever since I was a little kid I have been obsessed with this crazy china pattern from the 70s called 'Acapulco'. It's really loud with brightly colored birds and flowers all over it.

A few years ago I started collecting this crazy stuff, starting with a nice coffee pot in perfect condition.
Well I came home to visit my parents before going away, and my mother gave me her set of the matching coffee dishes. 8 cups with saucers, two cream thingies, and a sugar bowl. She isn't ready to part with the tray :(. I'm pysched anyway. Some day I will talk her out of the dinner and salad plates and the bowls

If you wonder what dish I really covet: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2650996999&category=2818

I would cut off my pinky toe for this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2650457974&category=2818

And these coasters are darling http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2650773042&category=2818

Yes, I know I am gay.

just hopped here, you were in the "trustmetrics" thing, I hope you don't mind

That's actually very pretty.. most of the 70's designs seem to come in orange and brown. That one's very different. You got good taste.
