Tablescape Thursday City Market..

Tonight I am featuring my City Market pattern by Pfaltzgraff.
I got them 2 yrs ago in a Pfaltzgraff clearance center, that has since closed.


There are many colors in them, so you can change the look with the napkins and placemats...I have dinner plates, soup bowls, pitcher and little bowls..I think I have a sq casserole tucked away somewhere too! The plates were 2.00 each..


Here with purple...



With black...


With purple and green..



And with yellow...


I used a white with black swirl salad plate also Pfaltzgraff, from the clearance center.. for .26 cents! Yes, it's true!! I sure miss that clearance center..;(

You can see them better here..


Please mark your calendar for LET THERE BE WHITE PART II Aug. 25th...

White dishes, and ONE other color, not counting silver for flatware etc...
Hope you will join in!

Thanks for coming, and please see the other entries at Susan's.
I am sure you have been there...I am late this week...
My dear friend, Anne, passed away, so we have been gone for the wake and funeral..
It has been a very sad time..Her dau is expecting her first child and has been hospitalized with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. So if I may ask again, please pray for this deepest thanks!

    Shela :)

  3. The different color "accessories" completely changes everyting! What versatile dishes!

  4. Very pretty! That salad looks delicious :)

  5. That's neat the way you use the different colors. It's hard to tell it's the same plates.

    Ann's family is in my prayers.

  7. O, dear one..I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. Please know I will add them all to my prayer list..and for you, too. It is a hard thing indeed to lose a friend.
    I luvvvv your dishes. How pretty they are. I know you must really enjoy using them.
    I am so excited to see that your are having another "WHITES" party.
    I will surely be there! Thanks so much for giving us the time to get our post together.

  8. I missed out on your first white party so I'm eager for the second.

    Must there be another color w/ the white or is it no more than one other?

  9. Hi Kathleen! I'm just a visitor, hopping from tablescape to tablescape, just watching and learning as I go, aspiring to maybe play along someday! (0; I just wanted to say I LOVE how you displayed the many creative options you could choose with only ONE set of dishes! The various looks were very impressive and certainly inspiring! Beautifully done! ~tina

  10. The dishes are gorgeous and can really be used with a tone of colors. I love that. It really makes having different looks a breeze. What great buys. I will try to join the party on the 25th. Such fun. Hugs, Marty

  11. Oh boy! Let there be white part 2. I'm looking forward to that. Love that city pattern. Fun with the different colors and plates and patterns added in. I have to say I got a little distracted with the fabulous looking food on those plates. Yummy looking.

  12. Kathleen, I love the City Market dinnerware ... it's so colorful and versatile.

    Sending prayers and positive thoughts for Anne's daughter.

  13. You know, I like them all, but the yellow and purple placemants, and particularly, the Bishop's Hat (or is that the Lily?), in any case, they're two of my favorite napkin folds. They really bring the whole table to life.

    Kathleen, I'm sorry to hear the sad news. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your friend.

  14. Hi Kathleen,
    I finally made it to your blog on time to comment. Firstly, so sorry to hear about your friend. Hope things work out well for her daughter.

    Now, for the tablescape. The veggie plates are soooo cute. And I love the cabbage you used as the centerpiece. :) Very cute.

  15. I have to say I like the drama of the black with your dishes. It's amazing how they change when they are paired with different accents.

  16. Kathleen, I am so sorry about your friend and about her daughter and expected grandchild. This has been a sad week for you. I will be praying for them.
    I love the way this fun china goes with anything. You did a great job of demonstrating that. And with the bargain you got on that pretty black and white plate, I can sure see why you miss that store! laurie

  17. I love all the looks! They are chameleons. Sending a big hug your way my friend.

  18. I like all of them, but I think my favorite is the purple!


  19. I love that pattern. Too bad the outlet closed! Very versatile and so pretty!

    What a great set of dishes! You can use them so many ways - it's amazing.

    So sorry to hear about your friend Anne.

    Hope to get together again soon!
