Rain has set in for a week in Southern Illinois, but that didn't keep us from having a nice pork burger lunch! George Foreman came to the rescue! I like to set a pretty table ... even when the table is the kitchen bar! I also love these cute plates ... Pistoulet from Pfaltzgraff. I think they call them buffet plates, but they are the perfect size for sandwiches. I like them because they aren't the normal sunflower colors. The green is more mint than grass green ... and the pink/purple dots soften the overall color scheme! Love them!
The place setting is simple, colorful and pleasant. The soft green placemats set the pace for the greens in the plate ... and the small green leaf. I bought these leaves as a set of five in a collectible shop. They are not ashtrays because there is no indentation for a cigarette ... and they aren't large enough to be a coaster. I finally decided they were intended as a mint dish ... or for tea bags or tea balls ... since they seem to be shaped like a mint leaf. If you know what they are ... tell us!
The pink flatware picks up the pink dots in the plates and on the mugs ... and the pink/purple stemmed glasses brighten up the pinks! Guess where I found the glasses? No, not in my storage ... but at Goodwill! Didn't pay much for them ... didn't need them .. but bought them anyway!
