Kelli over at "There's No Place Like Home" hosts a show and tell every Friday. Hop on over and see her special treasures along with links from others who participate in this fun little activity!
This Friday I thought I would share with you my dishes that I use when we have company over. The dish set was an unexpected gift from my Mother-in-law several years ago. I say unexpected, because they came through the mail - it wasn't my birthday or Christmas and there was no special occasion for the gift to be given. (Somehow that makes it sooooo much more special!)
I was told that the dish set reminded her of me - I think this is funny, because these plates are not anything I would pick out on my own. Yet, I absolutely love the dishes! They make the table have so much more color and almost without fail I receive complements on my dishes every time I have company over.
Each dish setting bears the picture of a different fruit.
There are peaches -
...or if pears are to your liking...
no, perhaps grapes?
But our favorite one is the cherry plate - because Dad HATES cherries and Mom loves them. So, when the kids set the table - who gets the cherry plate? They laugh with glee because they always give it to Dad and think it is soooo very funny that he is eating off of a plate representing the fruit he dislikes the most.
If any of you have found a plate with peas on them let me know - he hates peas too. Then we could have two sets of dishes for him. LOL
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I will spend mine packing - and yes, this weekend I will pack away my nice dishes. Glad I was able to get them into a show and tell before I got moved.
