Bunnies and Dragonflies
The peonies are from my garden. I went out today and picked a bunch. They get so heavy from the rain they just lay on the ground. I'm much happier to have them in the house with me. I love how the drops sit on the petals like gems.
I love spring. The colors are so fresh after winter. Spring green is one of my favorite colors. I find myself in a shop and whatever is green I'll head that way first.
It's really fun when you find a tablecloth that matches a set of dishes.
I fell in love with this set of dishes and knew right away that I was going to get them.
I was surprised when they came how heavy each plate was. After unpacking them I sat them on the table and was hooked! I ended up getting the rest of the serving pieces that came with it. Yep, Love at first sight !!
And these little napkin rings were a perfect match ! Dragonflies are amazing little creatures ! You can find these at Pier 1 Imports, Dragonfly Napkin Ring . I try to stop in to Pier 1 every few weeks. You never know what your going to find.
See perfect match !
Did someone say Purrrrr-fect ! This is Georgie. She's wondering what I'm up to and why I'm not paying attention to her.
Here is a close up of the salad plate. Isn't this cute!
And the chargers are amazing. I love the detail on them. Little daisy like flowers.
I like the darker green glasses with this set.
I almost didn't get these glasses. Did you ever see something in a store and go home without it and you know you were going to go back and get it?
I'm using the reverse side of my placemats and napkins. C & F Enterprises tableware is great because you get a two for the price of one deal. The other side is floral.
Same thing with the napkin !
The pink flatware came to my house the following year for Easter.
Pink ? Turns out I use it a lot more than I thought I would. Thanks for looking. Have a great day.
Georgie...... She does everything with me.
