New Dishes...

First of all, a BIG "Thank You" to Susan from "Between Naps on the Porch" for hosting this wonderful event. I am constantly amazed at the beauty I find every Thursday. I've recently returned from a trip to AZ to see my kids and grandkids. while there, I found this set of dishes that literally called out "Buy Me"! When hubby saw the gleam in my eye, he graciously moved his golf clubs to make room for this set.




I fell in love with the detail on the plates and the vintage bunnies.

I especially love the egg-shaped plates and bowls.


I've had the crystal for quite some time, the stainless is my everyday Oneida, Independance. I used a lilac tablecloth and napkins that are pale yellow with lilac ribbon for the ring. If you haven't guessed where I got these dishes-yes Cracker Barrel!

I saw those dishes there, too and loved how they look, but since I don't have a lot of storage yet I thought I better not. Your table is very well done.

Hello there,

This is just so fresh and pretty!

My, I like those new dishes! The little details are all so lovely especially, the centerpiece.

Please do come by for a visit!

(This year, due to renovations, I could not find my Easter decor, as they are packed in boxes somewhere amongst my things)..,

..,( I did however, find some egg cups and three beautiful, bejeweled Easter egg ornaments; otherwise for my tablescape, I have improvised. It's very whimsical;I hope you enjoy it)!

Cute new dishes. I am laughing as when we stop at a cracker barrel when traveling my husband ends up eating alone most of the time as I am busy looking around and some days shopping in the cute gift shop. They have the cutest things. Happy Easter.
