The first time saw Susan's Ma Maison dishes on http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/, I fell in love with them. Susan told me she'd found them at Homegoods (I hope I'm remembering this correctly), and they were made by Tabletops Unlimited. (http://www.tabletopsunltd.com/en/).
Since I'm a bonafide foodie, the humongous, ruffled soup bowl captured my heart. I looked high and low and couldn't find
these dishes (except at http://www.replacements.com/).
Of course, this was a long, long time after Susan had bought her dishes, and by the time I began my search, they'd been discontinued.
After relentless sleuthing, I found a similar bowl on Ebay, made by Tabletops Unlimited.
I bought four bowls and four plates (but you knew I would).
Dish mavens often have willpower issues. Many will turn down a triple layer cream cheese brownie for a chance to look at dishes.
My friend and fellow blogger, Marian (Jersey Girl) at http://dsdaydreams.blogspot.com/2010/01/im-still-around.html
She was from Mississippi, and magnolia gals are just that way.

Please visit our lovely hostess, Susan, and wish her a happy birthday. I can't wait to see what she and other tablescapers have put together this week.
