Sleek Black and White Table

It seems like we are on a "black flatware" roll.....Pat set this week's table using an ultra modern set of black flatware that we recently found on eBay.



Flatware is "Kaya Black" by Jankng. It's sleek and quite heavy.





Pat layered the placemats to add interest




The square glass cylinders sit on wooden bases of assorted heights

Fiestaware Table to "Beat the Winter Blues"

To follow through on our pledge to not do anymore dark Winter tables for a while, Pat set this week's table with sunshine in mind (even though it is pouring buckets outside - water everywhere, rivers flooding, dams overflowing and not one ray of sunshine in the sky....):
Not a hint of Winter in this table.....



Flatware is "Silver Tear" by Gourmet Settings

We have been looking for covered soup bowls for a while....but were too cheap to buy them. THEN - we walked into Pier 1 last year, and on the super sale shelf, we found eight of them for 98 cents each. Bonanza!!!!


The color in the picture is not quite right - this is actually "Lemongrass" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin

The dinner plate is "Cobalt" (Post '86) Fiesta(ware)

One of my favorite chargers, this is "Sun Yellow" Color Spectrum by Mikasa


Pat used this lively placemat with its blue, white, yellow, and lime colored stripes as her inspiration
