Clean, Comfortable & Elegant

that's what this lovely sideboard/cradenza in someone's home makes me think

so pretty, isn't it?

& talk about pretty, I was shopping with a girlfriend at Tuesday Morning a
couple of weeks ago and came across some white dinner ware.
could not get these plates out of my mind.

of course, I went back and bought them out.
dinner plates with a bumble bee impression on the top rim,
salad plates with fluted edges all the way around.
they are so pretty together & would look fab with this sideboard.

we need to knock out a wall in our kitchen so we have a BIG kitchen which would
then overlook the pool & grounds, but I'm the only one who thinks this way...
for now.




  1. I love those glass cabinets...perfect kitchen! Thanks for sharing!! xoxo

  2. Bumble bee plates? Just like Napoleon. :)

    We are back in Arles and the land of internet, hooray!

  3. Lovely sideboard! I think you should knock out that wall!!
    Love the "finds" at Tuesday Morning.

    1. Forgot to say the plates were $5 each. Awesome deal.

  4. Hello Marsha

    Those plates sound adorable. Tuesday Morning here does not have much in the line of dishes.
    What a steal @ $5. I love the kitchen you featured, so clean and elegant.

    Have a great remaining week

  5. Love to see the plates you went back for!! You got great taste, I'm sure they're lovely. Fabulous kitchen board you showed...and yes, it'll look magnificent over looking the pool!!

  6. That is lovely. It has a vintage but contemporary feel to it. Wish our kitchen looked like that!

  7. No fair!! pics soon!

    We will LOVE!!

  10. Go ahead, take a hammer and knock out the wall...that is what I did one New Years Eve, years ago...and my poor husband thought I really lost it....which was not far from reality. We stayed with a gapping hole and mess for a while but the result was worthwhile.
    Have a great week end.
