My new dishes

My neighbor just gave me these Bavarian dishes just enough to have for two.  the weather has been ,cold, rainy ,slippery, and dreary. I thought this was a nice time to pamper myself and use my favorite dishes,
A bit of whimsy.  Love my bunny teapot. A cup of hot tea with a little lemon to warm my tummy.
 gold rim and pinkish border to set off my pretty dishes.
Aren't the dishes beautiful?   looked them up and they would be  very expensive to replace.Very dainty and expensive to replace.what's for lunch I am partial to quiche and tossed salad for my veggies quick and easy.

Two dessert dishes.  I think peanut butter ice cream with bannana slices and lite whipped cream yumyum

Pretty floral napkin and varigated place mat on deep pink tablecloth makes me feel special.
There is room for two.That would be nice to have someone to share
My curtains that I used to make chandy covers. Cut off a ruffle and seamed the back.  I use these to keep shades clean.
Love them

St Patricks day
Halloween.  The changes are endless. fun to do.

I love your new dishes. They are a pretty Dresden pattern. The nice thing is, they will go with almost anything. What a nice gift. Richard from My Old Historic House.

What a generous gift you received! The plates from Bavaria have the most beautiful and versatile colors. I know you are enjoying them!

Those dishes are gorgeous! Think it was indeed the right time to indulge yourself and us. What a darling tablescape. It's early here on the West Coast and I'm enjoying my coffee; your post made my day and made me smile - thanks!

So I see there's room for just 2 at the table. OK...I will assume it's for you and ME! :-) What a thoughtful neighbor! Wow...she gave you gorgeous dishes that are quite enviable. The flowers on them are so pretty! I love the color of the under plate! I see that Richard pegged them as Dresdens. Even better!!! I hope you are having a good weekend. My husband and I are away for the weekend in dreary old Kansas. Not that Kansas is dreary, but the city in Kansas where we are for the weekend puts me to sleep!!! Talk to you soon!
