It seemed natural when Pat spotted these "doggy" plates at Pier 1 this season and scooped them up immediately.
Flatware is "Antique Copper Twig" - Pat chose it to match the bare leaves showing on the plate
Pier 1 has this plate in a "Winter" setting, also.....bet we wind up with them, too......
The dinner plate is "The Burbs - Slate" by Dansk
We can never resist a sale - although we already had this charger in the original wood color, they were really, really on sale at Pier 1. Pat's dear husband spray painted them "cinnamon" to go with another table we did a few years ago.
What is more "dog" than a bone? Our faux leather placemats fit the bill.
Pat pulled out the "dog collar" napkin rings
