I love putting things on display.
I also love it when what's on display serves a function.
My life gets cluttered enough what with work and kids and writing and volunteer stuff.
At night I want things clean and simple.
We have several sets of dishes, but these get used the most.
The blue is pretty.
The plates are sturdy (Williams Sonoma).
Plus, everything is within easy reach.
I know that little green guy doesn't match. He's special, though.
He's an antique and belonged to my mother.
I love a pretty table and nicely displayed items.
Sometimes, however, what I like the best is just
easy and within reach.
