friday find ... the 2.28 edition

"it is a wise husband who will buy his wife such fine china
that she won't trust him to wash the dishes..."
~unknown~


I love Friday Finds with Kim Klassen ... "it is a place to gather and share ... a place to cherish life's simple pleasures" ... doesn't that sound like such an inviting place?

I adore my find this week.  I discovered Juliska years ago in a small shop in Chicago.  It was love at first sight ... I knew right away i needed to bring her into my home and invite her to my table. 

And finally after years of lusting ... all twelve place settings, serving pieces, and silverware have made it to my cupboard.
The silver is weighted just right and each dish is handmade to perfection.

At first i wanted to tuck her away behind glass in my china cabinet like a precious gem ... just stand back and admire.
But i quickly realized that i needed to use her everyday ... to enjoy her ... and make each of our meals alittle more special!

If you have a few moments, be sure to click on Kim's adorable button that will lead you to more delightful friday finds!

  6. My first mother-in-law always had a beautifully set table for everyday meals and holidays/special occasions. What made it beautiful was all her pieces matched. She only had the one set of dishes. I adopted that idea too. No special occasion set that sat in the hutch except for a few times a year. I only changed my dinner set once in all my married years (currently I'm hooked on Franciscan Desert Rose). It just sort of makes everyday feel like a special day - even when we are having Kraft Mac and Cheese for dinner.
