Each day from now until Thanksgiving, I am going to share something I am thankful for in every post. I encourage you to do the same.
A glass fresh from our dishwasher when our water softener wasn't working.
Today I am thankful for modern conveniences; I am thankful for my dishwasher. Yippee! We can use our dishwasher again! We have really hard water, and without it our dishwasher can't work properly. After about a week or so of handwashing dishes, I am sooo thankful our water softener is back in working order -- after about $150 of repair work! I have lived without the use of dishwasher before for several years; I prefer a dishwasher!
My daughter (Polka Dot Pantry Sweets) bought some of these Churchill Brook Pink cereal bowls and salad plates for my birthday. She found them at Ross and they were being clearanced there. Little did she know that the Churchill Company was discontinuing this line. That's okay, we'll use a white plate for the dinner plate.
The salad plate. What is it about transferware that just transends you into a different world? I want to sneak into the scenes and rest from my cares a bit.
I love the peaceful feeling that transferware brings to a tablesetting.
I love clear glasses when the light shines through and don't you just adore bubble glasses?
I scrounged out these Barberry branches in our backyard. The Barberry branches seemed perfect for this setting.
My mother always set out a cornucopia in the fall; I am enamoured with them too!
As I have admired other tables with transferware, I have been amazed at the versatility of transferware. It really can go with any season. I am a huge admirer of soup tureens -- how about you? I am a huge soup fan and a covered soup tureen seems to enhance the flavor and appeal of the soup.
Please take some Blessing Mix as you leave today....munch....munch.
