I received a very sweet package delivery last week. It was a gift from blogging friend, Sue, from Rue Moufettard. She had seen my post on the black and white bird plates in my kitchen hutch and knew that I was on the look-out for more. Well, she went shopping at her local Tuesday Morning store and came up with two more plates for me!
Tuesday Morning stores must have been selling a variety of patterns of this manufacturer’s china. Our local stores didn’t stock this style of bird plates, but if they had, I would have bought them along with the other two patterns I found. I just love them and agree with Sue, who felt that they looked a bit like parrots.
My two bird patterns look like these. The plates that Sue sent to me are such a nice complement to the four that I already had.
The hutch was originally dressed like this. I removed the cow creamer and butter dish, as well as the green turkey plate and moved the Target birdies to a new spot.
The new patterns were placed on the back wall of the buffet top. I added a wicker demi-john on top of some of the plates for a little texture.
My white tureen took the place of the green turkey plate and white platter in this little cubby.
And the bird salt and pepper shakers were moved to the top shelf.
Isn’t it just amazing what the blogging community brings to the table? I really appreciate Sue’s generosity. She’s just such a giving person and that trait was very much evident in the recent party that she held at her new home for a crowd of neighbors and some fellow bloggers. You can read about it here. Thanks again, so much, Sue! I love my new plates.
