Living in two places means two sets of dishes... so I dusted off the box that contained the remains of our old set of dishes to move downtown. And then I bought bunny plates.
Guess which ones we use the most?
I love the bunny plates so much. I bought four bowls first... and then I picked up four sandwich plates... and then I could not rest till I sourced and brought home four dinner plates. If mugs were available I would be all over them... and I hope what we do have never breaks because the bunny in the middle never stops making me smile.
(the plates are designed by the very clever and talented Carly Dodsley, who has done soooo many wonderful dishes!)
Other good finds for the new digs:
These supercheap, completely undamaged white FireKing milk glass bowls from the antique shop next door...
We've been using the little bowls for ice cream and the larger one for salad or chips or for whatever you need a medium-sized bowl. Eventually I will mix dry ingredients in it for baking, but for now I'm just cheered up to see this bowl in the cupboard when I reach for a glass.
(I must say, I'm really enjoying the light and shadow offered by the living room window at the condo too. It's not the porch, but it's pretty cool.)
At the same shop I found this bit of embroidered linen on clearance:
I loved the colour combination. I need an iron, though. That's one thing I was not buying two of, so the pressing will have to wait.
(and anyway, when you've got ice cream that isn't going to eat itself, and cute bowls for serving it, who wants to iron linens?)
