Just Hopping Along! Remember , Let's Dish Wed. at 7 !

Hard to believe it is so close to Easter! I barely have the St. Pat's put away, and the Bunnies are starting to hop out of the bin.

Their cousins,the DUST bunnies , stay out all year!

If your read the The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday post, you know we went shopping yesterday.

I have nothing left to show, she showed everything! :)

No, I do! But I won't, as I haven't photographed it yet.

But I did get some very pretty Hutschenreuther dishes.

I don't know Hutchenreuther from Hasenpfeffer, but it was pretty,and I was considering
it , as it was a good price.

When the clerk came over and said it was, buy one get one free, SOLD!

I am talking GOOD prices!
Now I don't buy 12 like my friend Alma and Cherry Kay, but I took what they had!

I'll show you Wed for Let's Dish! Thanks so much to all of you who came over and linked or commented  Wed night for the first meeting!

So from lovely china, to cheap plastic at the Dollar store! I am working on a table using that tray as the charger, and adding some colorful plates.

We'll see how it turns out!

Here is a colorful table from a few years ago that not too many people saw. table 3512 Lots of pastels mixed together.  It was from the time before I started collecting colored flatware. :)

  6. I want the recipe for your chocolate eggs...they look delicious. Dust bunnies around here are about to become members of the family and get named if I don't drag out the vacuum soon!

    1. Thanks, Monica! It is Villeroy and Boch. I got it way after the season in the clearance when they had a small outlet here. My friend gave me the smaller version too.

  11. I left you plenty! You were the one with the haul on the Hutschenreuther dishes! Can't wait to see what you do with those chargers (still can't believe we bought the same ones - NOT together). The green in them is a bit of a challenge.

    Had so much fun! So are we going to do it again (and longer) for my birthday???

  12. "Their cousins,the DUST bunnies , stay out all year!" Mine, too! I have the best collections going under all the furniture! LOL

    Very cute egg place, St. Kathleen. I'm still dragging down the green stuff & bringing up the Easter. Its good exercise, I think.

    Have a nice Sunday at your house. My DD's family/g'kidlets got home safely from Spring break, so I'm happy to have them back NEAR the nest, if not exactly in it. I worry when they're away & on the road. I missed them, too!

    Hugs,

  16. Hi, Kathleen! Thanks for the heads up on the flower pot cake stand--what a cute idea! You're right; I certainly could have used it for the baby shower! You're making me love polka dots--I always liked them, but when I see your tables with them I'm liking them even more! :) Love your header too. ~Zuni

  17. Can't wait to see what you do with your new HAUL!!! Love the look at the past table: I have those same bunny placecard holders:):) XO, Pinky

  18. Do you know what I like about you. You are REAL. And that is a true compliment. Love your mixing the 'plastic' with the real china. There are alot of gals who cannot afford to go on fun buying sprees and find all these great bargains like we do. So I think using a mix is really a good thing. Love your blog Kathleen and you snd The Tablescaper (and alot of other fun dish bloggers,) I consider 'dish partners in crime.' (big smile)
    When my neighbor and I go shopping that's what my husband calls us 'partners in crime.' And when it comes to spending we really are. (chuckle)

    Hugs,

    1. Nann, I can't afford it either! I was using my birthday loot, and the Hutschenreuther was DoLLAR store prices.
      I squeeze a dollar till it yells for mercy!

  19. I'm guessing you bought a whole lot more than what you're letting on! You and Alma are like gasoline and a Bic lighter when you get together to shop! :-) I can't believe Easter is but a stone's throw away! I've gotta get crackin'! Last week's "Let's Dish!" was a lot of fun. I'll be joining you again this week. There were some really cool posts on there!

  20. You are a good shopper just like my sister! You cracked me up when you said the tablescape was from the time before you started collecting colored flatware. I haven't started collecting colored flatware "yet", but I certainly collect polka dots! I could sink my teeth into one of your beautiful eggs!

  21. Can't wait to see -- gosh I can't believe how soon Easter will be here.

  22. I love Mrs. Bunny!!! I'm so not ready for Easter but I love looking at everyone's decorations and table settings. It's really fun to shop along with you and The Tablescaper too!

  29. I can't wait to see your tablescape using those egg-shaped trays as chargers! That is so creative. I also liked those carrot napkin rings that you showed in the tablescape that you had done previously. I plan to do a tablescape, but I haven't gotten too far along in the planning!

  30. You always have the cutest dishes, Kathleen! I have so little out for Easter this year as I'm going out for a potluck. But I'll be back to check on your table.
