Winter is like a mean-spirited visitor who hates your cooking yet eats every last crumb. Winter is a guest who has given too little and stayed too long.
For the first time in weeks, I awoke to blazing sunlight and knew for sure that spring wasn't far away. After breakfast I began hauling china to the new dish room. When I found these cute birdhouse dishes in a bombe' chest, I knew they'd be perfect for a Saturday tablescape.
The salad and dinner plates have the same design. If you look close, you will see a sign that says "Keep Off the Grass!" The topiary is cute, too.
The dinner plates have a lot of wear-and-tear (grazing is the term, I think).
The "Birdhouse" dishes can be found in the DBG Etsy Shop. Yes, I'm Etsy-fied. The epic household organization is responsible for this (actually my friend Susan at BNOTP gave me the idea). Plus, Dr. Gollum will not relinquish his side of the library for dishes.
Bandwidth has volunteered to take care of the shipping, bless him.
We have 4 dinner plates--due to the "crazing," they are $3 each.
We also have:
8 soup bowls
7 salad plates
