I am back from my Vermont vacation...I had a wonderful time with family and friends. I miss the beautiful weather, too! It is still very hot and humid here on the prairie. I did do some shopping while there, but you will have to wait another week to get a peek. In the meantime...
we decided to chance a trip to the city yesterday. We usually don't like being out on the road over a long holiday weekend. I sure am glad that we did...I hit the jackpot at Savers!
I almost never look in the baskets of dishes on the endcaps as they most usually are the ugly ones that sit there month after month...something told me to check the basket that was above eye level. To my utter delight it was filled with bright yellow cabbage leaf dishes. I could see tea cups, saucers, unusual shaped bowls, plates, what looked liked a lid to a tureen and some lidded bowls. The price tag said 31 pieces for $29.99. I lifted the basket down and into my cart it went.
When I got home and pulled everything out, this is what I found:
7 saucers, 6 tea cups, 7 salad/dessert plates, 6 lidded individual soup tureens, 6 coupe cereal/salad bowls and the lid to a tureen.
The pieces are made by Secla, which is a company in Portugal. They make dishes that resemble the Bordallo Pineheiro cabbage leaf ones. eBay has these dishes for sale and some of the prices are quite high in my estimation!
A couple of years ago I found some Vera napkins that had bright yellow, white, a little blue and green; at the time I didn't have anything that they really went with. The yellow is about the same shade as the cabbage dishes so guess what I am using! The cobalt glass napkin rings seemed like a fun accent to the bright yellow.
I am using Gibson Regalia dinner plates as charger plates. The rest of the setting is Secla.
The flatware is a combination of different pieces I have collected through the years.
The centerpiece is simply candles, a couple white candlesticks and a cobalt to go with the touch of blue in the napkins.
Thanks for taking the time to visit, it is always appreciated. Please come back the next time...
I will be linking up with The Dedicated House/Make It Pretty Monday, Cuisine Kathleen/Let's Dish and The Thrifty Groove/Thrifty Things Friday.
Thank you ladies for hosting each week.
