New Dishes and more....

Does this mean I have to cook now??? lol I got new jumbo glasses for the man who likes "manly" sized diet Cokes. And look at these littel ramekins. They were on clearance at the Crate & Barrel outlet.

And I got generic white dishes. I just haven't been able to find anything I really LOVE. Well, let me clarify that. I have found dishes I love but I'd have to sell my house to own them so I went the budget way. I found these "cafeware", also at C&B outlet.


You see, the mister likes to go to the Indian casinos and gamble and the misses likes to keep her money for more important things like fabric, or um, dishes! lol So, I got these and a cute cup cake stand, cooling racks and a few other goodies. And he got to gamble. Actually, he did very well and paid for all my purchases. All I can say is it's a good thing there's no casino close by! I'm sure his habit would be much more dangerous if that was the case. Kind of like me living within five miles of six different quilt shops. Oh yeah, I do!!!!!

And just so you don't think all I do is shop, I did sew a little "thing" together the other night. My artsy daughter Kelley, asked me about printing on fabric. We talked about several options and she grabbed a bit of artwork from her computer and we printed it on a Printed Treasures label page. And just so the little artwork didn't go to waste, I put some borders on it and stitched in the ditch around it. Cute little...um, I dunno, coaster? Hey, it's an original bit of art. :o) I told her she should draw a little Christmas elf or something and we could do small ornaments for Christmas. Good thinkin' huh? :o)

Love your new dishes. I've been on the hunt too, but most of the ones I like mean I need a new dishwasher too!

Don't you love printed treasures!

Those are adorable. She should open an Etsy shoppe and sell them. Potholders, ornies, lil pillows, door hangers, mini wallhangings....And I love plain white dishes. Go with everything and you can snazz them up if you what.
