Dishes, dishes, dishes........

Springtime is all about gardening here in Humboldt County (indoor, outdoor, legal, illegal - garden centers are very busy this time of year.) Pat and I will be making our annual trip to Pierson's (Building Center and Garden Shop) soon. So it's about time to pull out the Pfaltzgraff  Naturewood dishes and set a table.

These are versatile everyday dishes that can be used all year long.

Although the Sweet Maiden is a bird feeder, she is perfect for a centerpiece. Here she holds more flowers.

Pat took inexpensive clay pots and used glue and white sand to add color and texture to the flower pots.

The small flower pots hold salt and pepper.
This is Ralph. Pat thought we should invite a little of the "outdoors" to our Garden themed table. And I guess she is right - a frog (a rather large one) is just the perfect guest.

Starting with the salad plate.......

The next layer is the buffet plate (here it is used as the dinner plate.)

The large dinner plate is used as a charger.

The wooden-like charger is from Pier I.

Bamboo placemats - Pier I years ago (before we had one locally)
Flatware - Noritake Ironstone (purchased 20-30 years ago)
Wood charger - Pier I last year
