  3. Is it really a garden piece?! It looks like you had it custom made for your dishes! I like the rustic wood you've got behind your dishes, too. Very clever no-cost decorating idea.

    I'm one of those people who likes to eat off white dishes. Everything looks so much more appetizing! Until I saw your post I forgot all about a set I saw at Junk Bonanza. $45 for the whole set of white restaurant dishes with a little jadite green art deco design around the edge. We all wanted to buy it, but in the end nobody did! Kick, kick, kick.

  17. I am with you Geneva, something about finding a simple white dish at a garage or estate auction is one of my biggest thrills!

  19. Hi Geneva,

    I've been reading about your mobile home makeover again over at Mobile Home Living and wanted to tell you how impressed with it I am! My husband and I often dream of finding some place more affordable than our little cottage that we bought at the height of the real estate boom. Maybe someday!

    Love your dishes - white is so practical and the dishes always seem to be so sturdy.

    Hey, you might want to share this post on my newish meme "A Favorite Thing Saturday."

    Best to you,

  33. That's such a wonderful idea, Geneva. So adorable and fall-like with those darling pumpkins! I tend to bring a lot of "indoor" things into the garden. But you've got me thinking, now, about what "outdoor" things I could bring inside!
