Last week, I had a
WEST TEXAS COFFEE
using these dishes I bought from
They are by BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS,
My COFFEE PLATES go so well with the dishes
and I mentioned in my post that I surely wish that
I'd bought TWO sets of the Better Homes and Gardens dishes...
They are still available ...
.$34.95 for a 16 piece box.
I walked into GOODWILL 2 days after the post...
"what to my wandering eye did appear....
A SET OF MY DISHES...!!!
HOLY MOLEY !
I actually could not believe my olden eyes..
I DID SQUEEL !!
4 DINNER PLATES
4 BREAKFAST PLATES
all like brand new...
heck...I think they ARE brand new...
♫♪♥happy dance happy dance, cha cha cha♫
Alas....the MUGS weren't with the set.
Guess they were coffee drinkers and didn't want to give up the cups.
Oh well...not to worry.
I am bound to find them sooner or later at another THRIFT store. :))
...i just know it !
I am very unorthodox
when it comes to putting table settings together.
I tell ya...just whatever looks good to MY eye is what I use.
...and BLACK and WHITE
just always looks
GOOD to me.
I took my color cue from this adorable
FRENCHY ROOSTER PLATE...
...tried them together and...
I LIKED IT.
I am so proud of my new dishes...
Now, I can sit my table with a setting for 8...
just won't have all the cups.
I'll serve ICED TEA....
coffee in clear glass cups with dessert.
....and there ya go !
Nothing GOOD to eat today..
cottage cheese and cushed pineapple
and cute little butterfly crackers...
and....is THIS some sort of bread baker thingy?
I've never seen a loaf of French bread THIS long..
I found it in an antiques store and loved the way it looks...
It seems to be pretty olden...
I mean, this baby is LOOONG..
and, it has little dark spots all the way down,
as if little biscuits or rolls were cooked in it.
But, WHO has an oven this would fit in?
You'd need an oven the size of a car.....well....nearly.
Any one know what it might be??
