Wednesday, March 11

Hi , ya'll come on in ...............


Well I went and done it again ! Bought some more dishes that I really didn't need . But I was in TJ Maxx and stumbled upon these little pretties and I just had to have them . I was going to be good and so I only bought 4 plates. Oh yes I was so good, just so-o-o-o-o-o good ! So out the door I went. I was so proud of myself.

But then when I got home ......... uh- oh! here it comes....... I got to thinking,
now why didn't I buy more of these ?? I really needed more of this pattern because I think I am going to use them as my everyday dishes .


So I got supper done and cleaned up the kitchen . Then I told honey bunny , you know I should have bought more of those dishes because I think I want to use them everyday. So bless his heart he started turning off the TV and saying "well come on let's go get them". Is that not sweet? Now mind you I live 22 miles from that store and here we go trudging back down there . Sigh .

When I got back to the store I bought more plates,dessert plates and the cute little bowls, now I have a service of eight. They feel so good . Can dishes feel good LOL ? No kidding , they do feel so nice .

I just love this pattern .


OK , sorry I blabbered so long . But you just gotta go on over to see Susan at
Between Naps On The Porch , she is the host of Tablescape Thursday . You will see some gorgeous tables and eye candy. So hurry along now and get on over there !
You can click on her blog name here or click on the Tablescape Thursday picture in my sidebar to your right to take you there . Have fun !

I just love the bright red tulips and the pretty blue together! This is just absolutely adorable! I'm wild about blue and white together, and this table has so much punch with the red. Great job!

Happy Tablescape Tuesday!

Sheila :-)

Great post!

Janie's World said...

Your table looks fabulous! How great you are going to use these for everyday! I absolutely adore your little blue and white rooster, so unique!

jeanne said...

Hi Theresa, I am catching up for missing lots of visitors yesterday. I love your dishes and the fact you went back for more. That would be me. The blue and white rooster is beautiful too. Lovely and so pretty for your table every day.

We are making a fast trip to Florida to see our ex Dtr-in-law who is terribly ill with cancer and has very little time left. We love her dearly and our grandsons need our support and love. They are 20 and 17 and suffering so much. We will be home on Monday if all goes as planned.

See you then my friend...Love, Jeanne.

What a sweet Honey Bunny!!! I went to my TJMaxx yesterday and they did not have any dishes like that. Those are so beautiful!

Kim Chalfant said...

I had to laugh when I read your post. I can so totally relate. I just bought more dishes today when I was at Target. My justification is that they were on clearance. Your hubby is a keeper.

A Hint of Home said...

Very elegant dishes and pretty pattern. Love the blue and white.

Margaret's Ramblings said...

I couldn't believe it when I visited your blog this morning. I picked up a palte the same as your design a few weeks ago in a chariety shop but in pink and loved it so much I have been on ebay and started my own collection in both colours. I have never been that excited over the blue and white willow pattern but I just love these country scenes, margaret

Dream Mom said...

I loved your new plates with the flowers! Those will be great to use everyday. How sweet your hubby went with you to get more dishes!

Mary said...

I had to laugh when I began reading your post. I do the same thing: "well, I'll only buy four; that won't break the bank..." I'm glad you went back and got more -- they are just gorgeous! And yes, what a sweet man you married. :)

Thanks for sharing your beautiful tablescape!

Twice as Nice said...

WOW!! If I wasn't already married, if your hubby wasn't already married....I'D MARRY HIM!! What a sweetie. We need to meet him.
Love the dishes and the story. I would of done what you did...not got them and then wished I would of.
Have a great weekend and give that hubby of yours an extra squeeze from The Twins

It's taking me forever to get to all the tablescapes! But I reached yours and I loved the blue and white. I have those same plates but in a black and white! I love them. The cobalt blue goblets look great! Love the rooster!

Tea Time With Melody said...

haha, the first thing I thought of when I saw your first picture was, "How many dishes does she HAVE!" I too like this pattern. I discovered this store myself a few weeks ago, I like it alot. Bought a picture there.

Cherdecor said...

I have looked and looked for that particular pattern in blue dishes! I absolutely love them! Please say I can come have lunch with you and eat from those dishes! What is the name of that pattern? I should look on-line for them.
