Country Cottage Meets Art Deco

Or...North meets Southwest?
Every payday I have $100 mad money. I am a very lucky gal, indeed.
I can and must do anything I want with this money.
This last payday I purchased these dishes, they were $99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I was practically waiting at the front door for the entire week for the package to arrive.

To me they look Danish, but in the USA we put them in a "Country Cottage" category. :-)
But a service of only four, you may wonder?
Yes, only four as I will combine them with similarly colored pieces of Fiestaware (a complete opposite style) and all of a sudden and without warning...service for 12. 

See all the pretty combinations:

And the Vintage Ripple Afghan WIP...
(See this post for pattern info.) coming along.
 I have added some roses to the side...they are just pinned on, for now, 
as I'm not sure they will stay or go. 
What do you think? 
Should they stay or should they go, now?
If they stay will it be trouble? 
If they go will it be double?


  1. Das sieht alles wundervoll aus!^^
    Liebe Grüße,*Manja*

  2. Hola Astri bello bello trabajo, besitos Sandra.

  3. That song will now be going round and round in my head for a while. You are definitely one of those people who knows your colors and so everything easily complements the other. Love those dishes! and your WIP is gorgeous! I like the flowers. Best wishes to you, Tammy

  4. What a great idea. I'm gonna start giving myself some mad money too!!! I am a simple girl. Roses are cute bu I think your ripple is just perfect without them. The pattern itself is a eye catcher. :D

  6. I LOVE those square plates! I do like the roses, but will they affect the comfort level? How about a crochet table runner adorned with flowers?

  7. What lovely plates and afghan! The colors remind me of Cath Kidston. New follower from 'Made in K-Town'.

  8. Oh, that's funny, because the flowers on the afghan are what drew me to your blog when I saw the pic on Pinterest! Those colors are gorgeous!
