No.3 Done and Dusted...

A fancy feast at the Williams home. I don't remember posing for this picture, but I do remember the dishes we used on the show. They were a charcoal gray with polka dots. I loved them then, and I would love them now...how cool...

Yes, those dishes are fabulous. I would love to have the same pattern in a "jadeite" green or purple!

I watched the Sound of Music movie over the Christmas holiday. I must have seen that movie at least 50 times....and each time I have tears and laughter. The movie is made more personal for me now that I know you through our common art bond.

I wish you and your family an awesome 2010!

Hi Angela, I'm just browsing through your album, (couldn't leave a comment there so here I am) especially Sound of Music because I've introduced the movie to my son and he loves it! We must watch it once a week for months now. He's 13 and has the soundtrack on his Ipod! I'm so happy to pass on the brilliance of Sound of Music to the next generation.

I just love the pictures of you as a child.You were so adorable.I wonder what happened to those plates?

Gary said...

There is something I've wanted to know for ages.
In some of the backgrounds, there was an object on a rather low table. to my "kid eyes" it looked like a rocket. Later it looked like a stack of multi colored ashtrays. Never could figure out what it was.
Later, it was used on the headboard of "Rob's" bed on the Dick Van Dyke Show.
Any idea at all what I am referencing?

Hi Angela,

I just happen to be a vintage china collector and I well understand that warm & fuzzy nostalgic feeling associated with everyday items we knew from our youth.

Do you happen to remember what the background color of these dishes was? Of course, it looks grey in these b/w photos, but the most popular colors for dishes in the 1950's was either blue, turquoise, pink, red or yellow.

Let me know if you can remember their color and I might be able to find out who the manufacturer was and maybe even the pattern name.
