Peripeti, home

Check out the my latest sponsor, Peripeti, home on Etsy! She makes soy candles in beautiful vintage  glassware!

These would make great gifts and when the candle burns out you still have a beautiful vintage piece!  Great idea!

Mikasa Review

Someone from Mikasa contacted me and offered to send me this beautiful set of Grace dinnerware for a product review! Oh man...that's like offering drugs to an addict, how could I possibly say no!  In my mind you can never have too many dishes and I happen to love Mikasa! Blogging certainly does have some good perks!

I love the design on these dishes and although the background color wouldn't have drawn me in while I was shopping I was surprised at how much I loved it on my table.  The color is a little off on my photos. We've had so many dark, gloomy days that it was hard to get a decent photo! The color is very neutral and it would work well with almost any color of placemats or tablecloth!

They also sent me these beautiful Avenue wine glasses!  I love the design and how the cuts catch the light!

I love that these dishes could be more formal or casual based on your table decor. Very versatile!

I think this set makes a very elegant table!

You can check out more beautiful tableware on the Mikasa website.  Also...if you love solid white dishes, they have some really beautiful ones! I  especially love the pattern called Antique White!  I want those! LOL!

About Me

My photo
I'm a single mom with a 28 year old son & 22 year old daughter. I love gardening, decorating, knitting, cooking, and drawing. I dream of having my own little cottage someday but for now I'm just happy turning my rental apartment into a warm and inviting space on a single mom's budget. Because I work full time, I don't have time to respond to all the comments you leave but I try to at least answer all my emails...that's if they don't end up in my SPAM folder by mistake!
