Pink Hawaii

How about a little late summer tabletop journey? We're sailing the seas on a steamer to a magical land with flying fish~

It could only be brunch in Hawaii!

I hope you've enjoyed the trip. Your fare was only

A Lot Of Riviera!

Rivera dinnerware is Homer Laughlin's Art Deco celebration of colored glazes on a square shape. I started collecting this vintage dish line in 2008 when I found several pieces on a trip to Maine. There was plenty of room in the corner cabinet for my new finds.

This past Saturday was too hot to play outside, so I spent the day enjoying and arranging four year's worth of Riviera finds.

What a lot of Riviera!

Cabin 'Scape

I had fun with the Maine souvenir tablecloth during our getaway to a cabin in Maine last month. The natural setting provided everything I needed for a centerpiece.

The dishes in the cabin were not bad at all: some older Pfaltzgraff from the days when their production was U.S. based.

Of course I also brought along some Homer.

The centerpiece and the menu items grew with other local finds over the course of the visit.

I hope you enjoy your vacation!
