I am not sure why we don't use the "pretty stuff".
Maybe because they need to be hand washed?
Or maybe because we don't want to chip or break any pieces?
Or maybe we are to lazy to pull them out of the china cabinet.
But today I decided to use these pretty dishes!!
These were my Mom's and they have been in the basement, in boxes, for a few years!
The label is unfamiliar to me - BUT we all were born in the Boston area!!
The bread dishes are from Crate and Barrel, and the flatware is from Pottery Barn:
The dishes are a beautiful, royal navy with gold trim:
The butter dish is from Anthropologie:
I decided I better use the platter under the soup tureen as I am going to put beef stew inside!
And WHY no wine glasses on the table? Because we decided to have a glass before dinner - - in the "pretty" glasses:
How often do you use the "pretty stuff"???
