Hello Ladies, I hope you are all well! I am enjoying my blog break or NOggin as Debbie at Words on Wheels calls it! She is so funny, if you haven’t been to her blog, do stop over!
Anyway, I wanted to join in Laurie’s Valentine Party, I have never missed it. It is open to everyone, and I know you would feel very welcome there!
The story of these Pfaltzgraff Pink Filigree plates is interesting, well, to me anyway. 0)
There was a very good sale , free shipping and a mrrebates % back also. I don’t have pink dishes, and wanted some to play with. Alma, The Tablescaper, did too. We combined our order to qualify for the free shipping, but since she ordered a lot more than I did, I sent it to her house. Guess what! She didn’t like the color and sent her service for 12 of pink and blue back!
I thought it was ok, not a true pink, but it would do!
It is more a dusty rose color, and I had this fabric from when I made drapes for my dining room.
It is a chintz or polished cotton, Schumacher I believe. (I bought a whole bolt of it when Fabric Bonanza was going out of business. It was over 25 dollars a yard, but deeply discounted if I took the whole roll. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, we were in the process of building this house, so I figured I could use it somewhere!)
I used my mirrored chargers, by Jay via Overstock.com, the Pfaltzgraff plates, and the lace edged plates are from Christmas Tree Shops.
The lace edged linen napkins as well as the flatware is from Horchow.
Silver napkin rings with a pink candy kiss…napkin rings were obtained by saving LandO’Lakes butter coupons years ago!
Pink glassware is by Gorham, via Lenox Outlet. Candlesticks are by Mikassa, and the love bird s & p are from Pier One.
I made the centerpiece with a bunch of mini carns from the supermarket in a silver compote from Savers. Slim pickings on the flowers, so much snow and ice they are not getting their deliveries.
I would have like to fill it in the way I usually do with pachysandra from the garden but it is under a foot of snow turned to ice, so that was a NO!
A few weeks ago during a break in the Polar Vortex, I escaped to WSonoma Outlet. They were having a big sale.
It is a 3 jar stacking thingamajig.
Now you KNOW I wouldn’t pay that, not even close. I got it for $10.00. A lady on line had 6 of them, she was Christmas shopping for next year. I guess it will be good to fill with grass and Easter candy too!
Foodie Friday party had a Secret Ingredient theme. It was dark chocolate. I think my jar qualifies, but just in case I’ll share this.
Chocolate chocolate chip cake, EN ROSED with fresh whipped cream.
This is the pan I used. Cute.
I want to remind you about the 6TH Annual St. Patrick’s Day BLOG CRAWL on March 12th. Please join me in celebrating with a post featuring anything to do with the WEARIN’ of the GREEN. It doesn’t have to be a tablescape, anything that would add to the celebration!
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you soon!
