it's been a while since I've posted a tablescape.
|Christmas On Crooked Creektt 2013|
have eliminated a lot of dinnerware in 2013.
Gone are the Gibson Sage Green dinnerware. . .
and soon to be Artland Chili Pepper dinnerware, too!

Lately, I've been on the hunt for some "new" dishes. . .pretty dishes!
Pretty dishes for everyday. . .
like my everyday white porcelain dinnerware!
Perfect for serving just "Mr. Ed" and I. . .or a Dinner Group!
These versatile white dishes pair nicely with other vintage white plates
stored in On Crooked Creektt's cupboards.
I adore how they are accentuated by my many place mats and napkins!
Often times, On Crooked Creektt,
I need to borrow the cups and saucers for serving tea. . .
as seen in my Progressive Christmas Tablescape for the Brunch Bunch.
Other times, these dishes have enough presence to stand on their own,
as seen in our Brunch Bunch Luncheon, Through The Garden Gate.
I've used these everyday porcelain whites
to execute an elegant crystal and silver tablescape. . .
and to meet all~white tablescaping challenges with flair!
These hard working everyday porcelian whites
blend harmoniously with my vintage Homer Laughlin and restaurant ware.
Equally, they compliment my various serving pieces On Crooked Creektt.
Searching locally turned up one option.
I purchased enough for two place settings.
Guess you could say, I'm getting use to the idea of "new" dishes.
Somewhat limited as far as the blending and mixing
that I am accustomed to doing.
But pretty dishes for everyday, none the less.
The purchase started with "the hunt"
for a mug that would sit under my Keurig, a birthday gift from "Mr. Ed"!
It only took a few days until I was quite smitten
with the feminine beading design.
The height of the mug is "perfect"
under my Keurig for a 10 oz cup of coffee.
The over~size handle makes easy handling for arthritic hands, too.
So~o~o. . .
using my trio of the newest vintage collection On Crooked Creektt
of Snowwhite Regency Johnson Brothers Ironstone
Made In England, I set a Pear Tablescape!
I found this swirl pattern tea pot years ago, but recently found the creamer.
Yes, dear ones, the hunt continues for the sugar bowl.
I wonder. . .does the bowl have a lid or is it without?
Does anyone know?
At a local store closing, I stumbled upon the oval serving bowl.
The oval serving bowl was a $4.50 purchase
discounted 40% making its cost only $2.70 !!!
After being pleased with the coffee mug,
I purchased two dinner plates,
two salad/ dessert plates
and two oatmeal bowls for "Mr. Ed" and I
to experiment with at our dining room table.
I adore the detailing on each and every piece!
However, I do wish they had cup and saucer instead of mugs. . .
and, I will tell you. . .they don't get along nicely with my everyday whites!
So~o~o. . .
while they do set a striking everyday tablescape, with a touch of flair,
for serving just "Mr. Ed" and I. . .
the question remains will I expand on this line of dinnerware?
On Crooked Creektt, the jury is still out!
Until next time. . .
On Crooked Creektt will be joining
