Throughout my travels, I have always been fascinated with beautiful dishes and cooking essentials. The first time I visited Paris in 1963 (yee gads) I noticed the small boutiques filled with beautiful colored ceramic and porcelain tableware. I knew when I grew up and had my own kitchen, I was going to have dishes similar to what I saw scattered all about the small shops in Paris. Well, guess what....I managed to drag home boxes upon boxes and now, I can't even use what I have. It seems ashame to have too many choices today.....just when you think you have everything, you see something else and go out and buy it! I spend hours in specialty and kitchen shops whenever I am on the road. I am so bad , my own sister refuses to shop with me if she knows I am in the dish mood.....there goes the whole day! I am not alone when it comes to buying kitchen essentials and beautiful tableware...........we all want out tables to be perfect and festive for any occassion after we have spent hours preparing for that special event.
I would enjoy seeing how all my blogger friends decorate their tables for the upcoming holidays. Please try to take a few photos that we all could share viewing after things have calmed down. Let me know your thoughts about this!
