I was fumbling through our garage one day last week when I ran across an unopened box of dishes that had belonged to my late father in law. I fell in love with them immediately. I think they are so clean and simple looking. It has great, beautiful, blue coffee mugs that came with it.
I decided to have a beautiful Spring morning breakfast.
And it was delightful! The flowers were in bloom & birds were singing. Perfect! The blue & yellow plate on top is not from the set. I found them many years back at Ross. They are marked Deruta "Hand painted in Italy".
And the 'found' blue & white dinnerware is Crown Corning made in Indonesia. But it's not "The" Corning ware that we're accustom to.
So I went about looking for complimentary things to set a table.
The roses fresh from my garden looked pretty in this former bedside water pitcher (the glass broke a few years back).
I think the lemons gave it a fresh, clean feel.
I used my Easter bunny napkin rings and the bird S&P shakers.
It was a gift from my sweet neighbor.
Sorry the sun went behind a cloud in this picture.
A good look out my kitchen window.
Coffee was served from my Delft ware pot from Cozumel.
Juice was served in the crystal glasses I found at the little shop in town. It's called "What's In Store." Isn't that a great name?
