I have no business buying one more plate.
But I did.
I couldn't resist these pheasant dishes from Tuesday Morning.
So I eased my guilty conscience by just buying two place settings and the serving bowls. And they work on my favorite fall tablecloth, a vintage aqua/white piece with soft brown, aqua and yellow leaves.
Flowers are easy at the end of the season -- just raid the garden! Zinnias, coleus, dusty Miller, sedum and more found their way into this arrangement.
Since I already have turkey plates and autumn plates, I didn't feel right getting a full set, so I got two complete place settings and the serving bowls. I know, I said that before. But I have to keep reminding you and if you saw my basement, you'd know why. Mostly, I have to keep reminding Rick. He does not have the dish addiction.
I liked the border and if I have to have more plates than the turkeys will allow, I can flesh it out with these and only the sharp-eyed will be any the wiser!
So, join me for a treat or two. But be careful -- don't do this...
...or it might turn into this!
