( surprise). I was looking at my friends Pink Pincushion Blog. Sinta is so prolific with her quilting, it is truly amazing, and she works full time! Check out her blog..But she showed this butter dish and several others dishes from the same maker.. I really don't need another piece of dish ware.
I used to think it would be wonderful to have a different set of dishes for themed meals. Italian with bright colors for Pasta, Mexican style for Tacos, lovely sweet flowers for breakfast with a lacy table cloth.
And then came paper plates, running, to work, picking up after school, and somewhere that all got lost.
As I look through somethings in the linen closet, I found an embroidered table cloth.. ok, yes it needs ironing. Something I reserve for fabric not clothes. Why worry about dropping spaghetti sauce on it, the new spot removers are supposed to work, at least they say so on T.V. And worse comes to worse, I could dye it... the big sin!, or cut it up the good parts for some quilt, make blocks etc..
But back to the dishes.. I have a set of Chicken decorated dishes, for fried chicken dinners. Floral for breakfast, plain white for special settings that take a lace table cloth, and silver set.
and there are only a set of 4, and then
don't even remember using these.
No one wants dishes any more, it is paper and lasagna in a foil container
Love the table cloth.. now off to iron it..
