Platinum surprise...

I received two packages today. And trust me, in this economy, the UPS guy has forgotten the way to our house! But he found his way today for this...


I could not wait to open the box and find this...Mikasa "Floral Elegance" bone china! Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how beautiful this pattern is in person! You will be seeing it this coming week, and probably every week for a while!




I have heard that it is being discontinued, so if you are looking for a beautiful, timeless, elegant, formal pattern run and get this now! I have to say my husband picked this out, and he did not disappoint me:-) Now I'm going to go play in the dishes...

  10. Gorgeous!! I can't wait to see your tablescape with it. I need (OK... I WANT) a set of formal dishes that is beautiful like that but not as color specific as mine is. That one is beautiful, and in the right two hands to use it well.

  14. All your taste is just elegant and beautiful. We recently had death in family and helping with hospitality can take on many forms and comfort. I often think of helping others can be those in our own circles in need of encouragement otherwise. Your posts I have been in my thoughts lately.I can offer meals when little else I feel I could be of help.Wanted to say also I ordered settings of 8 Italian Countryside. It looks so versatile and elegant. Thank you for such a wonderful home and inspirational blog. Emelia.PS your new dishes are just gorgeous!

  15. Beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing it in use in your home. It will set up very well in a serene winter tablescape with lots of crystal and shine, but I'm sure you'll impress us with a fantastic setting that I would not have thought of. You have such wonderful taste, and obiviously, so does your husband.
