That’s the name of my friend, Mimi’s blog, In the Middle of Nowhere…I know her as Marigene. She is a displaced Vermonster who wound up in Kansas..the wind you know!
I knew her pre blogging from a cooking forum we both frequented. We got to know each other..she hates spare ribs, she calls them BONES, , and I don’t like vegetables! :)
Way back then, M wasn’t into dishes…kept saying she had no room for them blah blah..
She sent me these beautiful lavender dishes..Neiman Marcus..via TJMAXX.
Aren’t they wonderful? I have looked all over for 2 more settings…If you see them, let me know..
Anyway, today I got this…from Marigene..
A gorgeous , huge cookbook..She said it reminded her of me..How sweet! I can’t wait to read it..My dh, who is not of Irish heritage, expressed amazement that there could be that many Irish recipes..:) You know the old stereotype..
So I did a little setting with her dishes..well mine, but you know if you go to her blog…she has become a Dishaholic…I am afraid she’ll blow in from KS and swoop them back!
She also sent me 3 of these lavender cabbage bowls..Bordallo..
The napkins are dark purple, and I made sheaths from a valance I got for $1.00. The purple ceramic napkin rings are from Villeroy and Boch. Purple stems, TJMaxx and water glasses are antique, they were my Mom’s.
I used Iris from my garden and some flowers I took out of my Mother’s Day bouquet from my son, dil, and 4 gkids.. The toile pitcher is a gift from another friend.
Does anyone know what those little pink flowers on a woody stem with a thyme like leaf are??
Mimi, you are too good to me! Thank you!
Thanks for coming..see you tomorrow for Tablescape Thursday.
