Dishes are Personal

When my husband and I decided to get married we had many showers. At one of these showers I received a set of everyday dishes.  I had already picked out my china, but not my everyday so, a loved one decided to pick them for me. Let’s just say I was very polite when I saw them. Not quite my cup of tea.

I did keep this platter because I like it’s size. One day I was at Wal-Mart and saw a set of dishes that I just feel in love with. So I sold the goose set and got my new set.

As you can see I only have 4 plates and 6 cups left. I think I cried after each break. I have been trying to find some on the internet but so far, no can do. Here’s a close up of the plate.

I like the set because they are over-sized. That means bigger coffee cups! haha The dishes inspired the fruit theme in the kitchen but it wasn’t easy to find things that went with the plate. I did find this trim. At the bottom you can see the top of the curtains. I did them after the clothe on the plates.


I also found this decal for my back-splash. I need to get a new one. This one has really faded. It’s hard to clean. I can’t use anything like clorox because it fades it. If I ever find one that like I will buy 2 or 3 of them for when they fade out.


Before this I had tile that had herbs on it. When I decided to replace them I had to take those tiles down. I like these decals because they can come off without having to take the tile down.

I have lived in this house for over 20 years. It is getting time to redecorate. My biggest hold up is $$$. That and I’m not quite sure what I want to do. lol I’m looking through magazines to get inspired. When I do redo the kitchen I will let you in on all of it.

Hearing from you makes my day!
