I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. There are many of us who just love to set the table and play with dishes. (In real life---Jack and I very often use paper plates!) However, the table always looks inviting. So many of the dishes that I use are not suitable for the dishwasher.
Tonight we are going to eat in the kitchen. It has been a long day and I am going to make 1905 Salad. You can read about it here.
The counter tops are cherry so I did not use placemats. A clear glass plate serves as a charger. On top is a plate with a fruit design. The china is made by the Edwin M. Knowles China Company and, although I can find the dishes on eBay, I cannot find the name of the pattern. The plate on top is banded glassware. I was fortunate enough to buy a lot of this glassware. I love the look of the colors with Fiesta dishes, too.
I could not get rid of that glare…..I am not allowed to climb yet!
The dishes are well worn. I bought the set when I first started staying at the cabin and Jack has decided that they really belong at his house.
The flatware was purchased at the Dansk outlet several years ago. The Fiesta pitcher is a reproduction and the zinnias are from the garden.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have a minute, I love comments!
