I Wish for a Fish Dish.

I hope you had a happy Memorial Day. I spent the day on a boat with my family, soaking up the sun and admiring the herons and the charred but still stately ruins of Johnny Cash's former lake home. Dad is a great Captain! And boating definitely relates to today's theme. Today I want to show you pretty serving dishes with an ocean life motif. As I said in my last post, I admire elaborate china, but it doesn't fit my lifestyle.Still, it would be fun to dress up my table with these lovely serving pieces. They're neutral enough to match my white dishes, but oh so fun:

Vintage Fish Plate by Fitz & Floyd sold by DetroitRockabetty on Etsy
In the mid-1970s, Fitz & Floyd made a complete line of servingware in this pattern. WANT IT ALL!

Serving Dish with Sea Turtles by Charlestowne Pottery on Etsy - Isn't the baby turtle cute?

This conch shell bowl from Pottery Barn is just too beautiful. Okay, I admit it: I registered for this one!

Vintage Clamshell Soup Tureen sold by JaysJunque on Etsy

Vintage Fish Tureen by Fitz & Floyd and listed on eBay Isn't this guy marvelous?
I love this pattern (and making soup!) so much that I had to list two tureens.


  1. I can definitely relate. My dream is to have a beach house for the sole purpose of having an excuse to own all these things!

  2. My dream is to have a large kitchen so we can stock dishes for every occasion. I LOVE fun serving pieces!!
