I purchased some new terracotta clay pots and painted them with the Annie Sloan Old White paint.
The tablecloth is a drop cloth purchased from Lowes. I love using these drop cloths, since they are very inexpensive and don’t require any sewing.
The green and purple cabbage bowls are from Portugal.
and these Mikasa plates. I know I said in a previous post, click here, that I was going to sell them, but here is what happened. Mr. CH said that since we wouldn’t get much money for them, we should keep them. I thought that was so sweet of him. Well, it turns out that Mr. CH is much more clever than I give him credit for. I now realize that since I kept these, I have zero room for more dishes. In fact, I don’t even have room for these.
I decided the only place I had for the Stratford Blue dishes is to bring them to Cedar Hill.
The silver is our very own Cedar Hill silver.
As the sun started to set, I lit a few candles for dinner.
