Good Morning!
I couldn't wait to show you these pretty dishes!
 I bought them a while back at a thrift store in Houston.
I have a place setting for four. I decided not to mix and match this week.
To show them off!

I love my red roses tablecloth so here it is again! A bargain from a Belleville, IL monthly sale.

                                     My dishes are Fitz and Floyd, Allegro in glaze blue.
                                     I could not pass them I love blue. lol

                                     I used my red placemats with my Pier1 blue chargers.
                                     My flatware is by Oneida, Paul Revere.
                                     I have had it forever, at lease 35 years!
                                     I use it everyday!

                                         I did a little more layering this time out.
                                        A white heirloom tablecloth with matching napkins.
                                        It belonged to my ex husbands grandmother.
                                        Someday when I am finished using them,
                                         I will give them to my daughter.
                                         I loved her and I am not ready to part with them.

                                                       A simple center piece
                    There were only two cups with the set, but four saucers.
                    I will be on the look out for more cups.
                    Doesn't seem like cup & saucers always break!
                    I always hate to buy incomplete sets but if I love them ...........
                    I can't resist!

                          My blue teapot set I love. I bought it years ago at a garage sale for $5.00
                          It is one of my favorites!
                         Do you have favorites or do you love them all?
                         I love them all, even if I say they are my favorite! lol
                         I will have a hard time parting with any of them when they time comes!
Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a comment, it keeps me going!
I will be joining:
BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday
The Dedicated House Make it Pretty Monday
Have a great weekend!
Blessings My Friend,


  1. Elaine, those are gorgeous amazes me what can be found in thrift stores. I hope you will be able to find the 2 cups you need. I will be on the look for you, too. Lovely vintage tablecloth.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Wow! What a find! I love your new dishes! The cobalt chargers seem to work really well with them, too. I need you to come shopping with me . . . Or maybe not! I'd end up finding too many beautiful things!

  3. I love the stack of Fitz and Floyd Allegro dishes. The centerpiece of flowers with the gorgeous vase and red candlesticks are perfect.
