Wouldn't this

be pretty for


Hello and thank you for coming.
I think I've caught a touch of that
cyber bug that's been going around
to all my friends.I just didn't feel
like scaping.And you ladies know,
it's alot of fun.But it's work.I just
didn't have it in me.So...I cheated
a little,shhhhhhhhhh.It's still
tablescaping,and you can still get
ideas.And REALLY enjoy these.
I don't work for Horchow of course,
I just love everything they make.
Here are about a fourth of their new
designs here.

Look at the monkey flatware.Am I the
only one that just thinks this is too

And all the bright colors,almost like

Look at the gorgeous charger here.
Wouldn't those look good with any

As always Tablescape Thursday

is hosted by the lovely,talented,

and friend to all,Ms Susan @

Look at this,aren't they luscious?
Please go by and visit the other
participants.They've worked alot
harder than me.Besides you always,
see something new and always
something beautiful....

Ann, hope you're feeling better soon. There has been some really nasty crud going around. I love all of your finds, but that brightly colored dinnerware just makes me smile! Looks like summer to me. Hugs, Kathy

Kristen said...

Hope you are feeling better soon!
I love the photos you found and sure wish I could get my hands on those colorful dishes...without breaking the bank :-)

Linda said...

Annie I am so sorry you are still not feeling so good. Prayers for you sweetie. I get so many catalogues most of them go straight to recycling, but not Horchow. I always take the time to enjoy their catalogues. Beautiful post. Love, Cindy

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Ann, :)
Oh I'm soooo happy you liked my new "Roo" and my naming him after your sweet baby!

I loved the precious prayer story. Doesn't it figure he knows how important that is to his Momma?
It's very sweet how our animals just "know" us.

All the pictures you found are so pretty. I do enjoy the monkey flatware!

Have a wonderful and blessed day my friend.
~Melissa :)

tardevil said...

I'm with you! I love those dark brown chargers & that cream & brown table (I believe w/ the monkeys).

Lady Katherine said...

Hope your better soon! I love all the dishes, that you have shown. I trying to make my mind up on a new pattern. I may just use Grandmother plain white dishes and add more patterns. I was looking at these dishes last night!

Anniepoo I sure hope you're feeling better soon! And I LOVE everything about the pot de creme setting!! The charger is gorgy too! I love Horchow as well but it's a little rich for my blood....but so great for inspiration! Vanna

Glenda said...

Sounds like a case of the kant helpits to me. You just need to rest for a couple of days and it will disappear.

Thanks for posting the pictures, since I don't receive their mail outs, I wouldn't have seen them otherwise.
