My husband thinks I have a vast reserve of dishes somewhere because he will swear he's never seen a certain one before. I have about four sets of complete dishes or china, the rest are mix 'n match pieces. I like to buy solid-colored plates and then accent them with decorated and color-coordinated salad plates. I buy them at garage sales, thrift shops, Pier 1, close-outs at Macy's. He teases me about my obsession but he also enables me. Recently I saw these salad plates at Pottery Barn. I sent him an e-mail link along with a big hint. Low and behold, they showed up on my doorstep not long after!
On this night, I paired the plates with these red dishes I bought at Wal Mart. They are from the Pioneer Woman's collection. They look so much more expensive than they actually were. I love the raised detailing on the rim.
This jar carrier sits on my dining table the majority of the time. About every 10 days I head to the flower market and buy some fresh blooms. When I win the Lottery the florist is going to be added to my speed dial list, I love fresh flowers around the house!
Today I am linking up with Tablescape Thursday. You will find a lot of inspiration there!
