Good Morning Sunshine! (T)

Don't you just love a sun filled morning?  What a great way to start your day!

I went out and cut some of my Limelight Hydrangeas and Rudbeckia (black-eyed Susan).  I recently found the big red pitcher at T.J. Maxx.  I liked the big chunky handle and of course the color!

Happy flowers!

These salad/dessert plates can be for waffles/pancakes and syrup or if you prefer some fresh fruit.

I came across these dishes at a re-sale store.  They are made by Pfaltzgraff and are called Honeybrooke (1996-1997).  There is no pattern name on the back so I contacted Replacements Ltd., that helped me with the name.  Since cherries are a big factor around here I was drawn to them.  

I used the Napoleon Bee flatware along with my La Rochere Napoleon Bee stemware.  The green dishes are made by Park Designs and are part of the Village  Collection.  I didn't imagine them being used with these new Pfaltzgraff dishes but that's the fun of mixing dishes!  The chambray blue napkin is from Sur La Table.  They were on markdown when I was there in July.

We like coffee and juice when we have time for a nice sit down breakfast.

Sometime earlier in July we stopped at Crystal Crate & Cargo in Beulah, MI which is about 25 miles away from us.  They had a large stack of these red and white buffalo check tablecloths which I was quickly drawn to!  I'm sure this will show up again soon in another tablescape!


Ooh- who's this!  
Mr. Teddy- never far away 😎

It's 10:30- time for breakfast!

  9. I remember that dish pattern, Liz. Anything with cherries is a big seller in this Door County area. Love your sweet morning set up. I could sit there and have a cup of coffee and enjoy every second of it in that setting. xo Diana
