Dish Envy …

Twice now, I’ve been walking through our local “Bay” (aka The Hudson Bay Company) store and come across this table setting.


And twice now, I’ve taken pictures with my iPhone (sorry for the quality …)


I’m thinking this means something.  This last visit, I took this picture also…


… which means two things … one - I am seriously crushing on this pattern and tw0 – it’s way out of my price point.

But one of the reasons for writing a design blog is to be able to dream – right?!   So, I’m dreaming of a virtual table setting including this lovely china…

I think it would be lovely paired with this set for contrast …

Well, look at that, a whole new life, just from one little table setting :).

What do you dream of setting your table with?



  1. And it's all absolutely perfect! Love those dishes too I have a couple of similar styled ones but I'd love this whole set in that beautiful soft turquoise colour.

  2. I love how you went from turning your dream table setting into your entire dream house! I really like the china - the colour is so pretty :-) I'm looking for a 4-place setting set of china to coordinate with my mom's Royal Doulton china. No luck so far, but I'm sure I'll find it one of these days :-) Hopefully within my price range!


    {I order the Krylon Looking Glass paint from amazon.com I'm waiting for the weather to warm up before I try out my copper mercury glass idea - I want to do it outdoors, because the paint stinks!}
