Blue Monday with white dishes
Happy Blue Monday everyone! Please visit our host, Smiling Sally, by clicking on the blue jay logo. After you've read her post, see who else is participating and visit their blogs too.
Today I am showing a new table runner that was too pretty and too inexpensive to pass up at The Christmas Tree Shop. For casual dining, and the fact that our table is used for more than dining, I like a shorter table runner. Blue, yellow and white colors grabbed my attention right away. Even though this was mass produced somewhere, I just know they had me in mind!
The white lace edge dishes and rectangular plate are from Pier One. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you'll see that each edging is slightly different. I don't know what the intended purpose of the blue and white plate was when it was made, but I will use it to serve bread or rolls when it is just the two of us for dinner. If I had a different metabolism and could eat all I wanted without a worry, that would make a heck of a serving plate for an eclair, wouldn't it?
Please excuse the water spots on the runner. I washed the plates just before taking this photo and didn't notice them until I saw the picture.
The only way these plates could make me happier is to have something scrumptious on them. That I didn't have to cook. Or wash up afterward.
