Match Made in Heaven!

Oh what a beautiful morning it is here today!

Recently I showed you my newly purchased bedspread.  But what I haven’t shown you is the set of thrifted dishes that I found shortly there after.  I snagged these babies, service for 4 for $20.

The floral pattern goes so well with the patchwork flower square in my quilt.

Don’t they look right at home there sitting in my cute red tray?  It was a Pottery Barn clearance for $10. There is a slight crack in the bottom, Phew; who cares?

Last Monday I found these fun red utensils at a thrift store.  $3.50 for the lot. Oh, and the little red basket was $.50.

Right about now you’re thinking; “Why in the heck does it matter if her dishes match her bedspread?”

Well dearie, I may just have to start having breakfast in bed.

Excuse, me I think I hear the kettle whistling!

In the famous words of Lady Grantham, from Downton Abbey.  “Where on earth is Miss O’Brien with my breakfast?”

Oh, I forgot to mention that the silverware is tiny.  Perfect for the grandies.

Oh my, think they’re gonna want breakfast in bed too?

Whether you’re having breakfast in bed, cooking your own, or settling for a bowl of cold cereal.  Good mornin to ya!

Jann

Cute post and cute red items-those seem like quite the find, now to find someone who can cook that breakfast and bring it in for you. ;-)

Mary Redo said...

Beautiful! Can't believe you got such a good deal on the dishes, and I love that they match your bedspread. Great deal on the tray, too, and we always love us some red, right?! Mary

Love the dishes and love that pretty quilt!!

Jan:
Just Google Cece Caldwell's website to see the blues, etc colors are great! I think you will like it but the wax is also dull. I don't think it is supposed to shine but Cece also has a Satin Finish product you can use on top if you like more shine. There is no smell.

Blessings across the miles,

Oh Jann, you are so right, a match made in Heaven, but forget breakfast is bed, how about a picnic on the bed .... have always loved red transferware, and yours is charming.

You can bring me breakfast in bed anytime with that cute quilt and great china!

Maureen said...

You will definitely need a maid to bring you your breakfast, when you have all that finery around you!

lynn cockrell said...

You've found some wonderful items, Jann. I love the pretty dishes and I agree, who cares if there is a crack in the tray, just gives it character. I think the quilt you are using to cover the table is gorgeous! The pictures you have take are great and so colorful to look at and enjoy. Happy Easter to you and yours!

That post made me smile--big! I love that your dishes need to match your bed. And I can just envision the happy mess of jam and butter and milk and tea from a picnic with the grandies in the most comfy place of all!
