You may think this post is about my first set of china, China Garden Prestige, that I acquired in the early '80s, but really that is not the focus today.
You may think it is about the doily and coasters I made while I was in Alaska, but really those are not the focus today.
The focus today is not the blue glasses from Pier 1 or the napkins or centerpiece I picked up along the way.
The focus today is on this sweet silverplate I picked up recently.
There are 8 matching forks, spoons, and knives. There are 2 matching salad forks and I picked up 6 of another pattern to mix if I needed to. There are 2 serving spoons, a cake server, and 2 tablespoons. Two other forks I liked came home with me too. Would you like to know (oh I just have to tell you) how much this all cost? Ready... $6.50. The way I look at it - that's a lot of fun for six dollars and fifty cents!
Thought I would add the salad forks and a Cuningham & Picket, Inc., Norway Rose salad plate.
One of the old rules was your knife pointed toward the plate, remember?
Napkin on the outside unless not enough room, then under the silverware.
I love the room we have now for artistic interpretation in our table setting and so many of the tables I have seen are truly works of art.
A simple table, a simple meal served with love and ...
really cool silverware!
