Ah, September !!!

A long time has passed since my last post, wish I knew where I was or what I was doing!!!  I have no clue!!! My life is not that earth shaking anyway, so no need to bore you on a daily basis......

There were many plans for table settings, vignettes, recipes, crafts and fun things..........did not happen.....  The general upkeep of home, personal issues, and family ties did me in.....



Good news, I'm back on track, and waiting for the cool breezes, crisp air, and some Autumn color!!

Also, I did what I said that I would NEVER do.....bought a new set of dishes!!!!  Back in the Spring, I saw these dishes on 'Home is where the boat is' blog and fell in love, she stole my heart and wormed her way into my dreams, so flirty, so pretty and way toooooo sweet.......

You know how I love red........waited until the price and time was right, I then struck with my overloaded credit card, and ..... Boom, the box was on my doorstep!!!  Oh happy days!!!

Found the matching tins in England and added them to the mix.  This is a setting on my kitchen ledge, this all led to a new color in my kitchen and I went to town with it.....

Even on the stove!!!

And something new on the floor!!!

Even matching fruit!!

There were 2 dinner parties using the new china, but alas, no pics.........my next plan is to set a table scape....
I only bought the dinner and salad plates, mugs and the tin canisters.  I have other salad bowls, and soup bowls that coordinate perfectly......one soup bowl is holding the cherries, which I feasted on all summer!!!

Hope you are well and enjoying the end of summer, I am not, its' way toooooo hot for me!!!    But Autumn is just around the corner, and I have my front door open to welcome her in..........

I love your new dishes! So pretty! (I love red too!) And I am patiently waiting for fall weather as well. I love being able to open up the windows, curl up with a blanket, eat chili, and smell all the smells that come with Autumn. Happy Pink Saturday!

I can totally relate. It seems like March and the start of spring was just last week. And now we're delightedly awaiting AUTUMN! Hooray. Thank you for a lovely visit via Pink Saturday.
