All the Christmas decorations have been put away… and the house seems bare. I was going to do the kitchen table this week but one of my sons decided to have friends over to eat pizza and play cards. Looks like we will have to see what is going on in the dining room!
There’s a place set just for you! Today we are using white linen napkins and Towle King Richard sterling.
Look at the detail! I have had it stored in a box for over 20 years. I finally decided to drag it out and use it. (What am I saving it for?)
The bowl is a cream soup bowl in a pattern by Spode called Jewel. My first husband’s maternal grandmother gave me her entire set of Spode Jewel in the early 1980s after she saw my eyes light up when I saw the bowls in the set. (Don’t worry, she had more than one set of china)
The salad plate is Asiatic Pheasant- Blue by Johnson Brothers. I picked up a few of those for a few dollars a piece at Marshalls (blue/white dishes and a good price, how could I NOT get them?)
It is a really pretty pattern! I wouldn’t mind a few more pieces!
And the dinner plate is Spode Jewel
Here is a better picture of the detail
and finally, the stemware…. a basic clear glass…and a glass with blue and white flowers! These were one of the items my sweet husband gave me for Christmas! He knew I liked dishes and blue/white….and I had mentioned looking for cobalt blue glasses…. so he was thrilled when he found these!
(Come on, say it….”awwww”)
and peeking from behind the glasses is the Spode Jewel tureen with lid…… It is a real Jewel (to me!)
