It’s still happy summer time, the weather is great, the mornings clear and I’m hungry.
I can spot a cherry item at 50 paces…I’ve been known to zoom in on something cherry from a full aisle away at the flea market. Sue sees turquoise and atomic, I see red and cherries…This morning I also see red Fiesta, BIG cups of chai and some bagels! Those amazing cherry mugs/bowls (just depends what you want to put in them) are from Target of all places (and be sure to pronounce it Tar-jay!). A few years ago they came out with a line of cherry dishes that were incredibly well thought out. I snagged most of the pieces, like the cookie jar, a colander, a serving dish. Through the years some pieces worked better than others so that which I couldn’t use my friends could : )
Now what would a really good cherry table be without really good cherry glassware? Thanks to Crate & Barrell it’s complete. The amazing coffee server is very vintage and the silver sparkle with the bakelite apple juice handle gives the table the bling it deserves.
The napkins are vintage from Nadine at the Alameda Flea Market, the silverware my own french bistro set. I LOVE this cherry pattern so much that I have several almost identical tablecloths…I even made one into a duvet cover! One morning I’ll have to do breakfast IN a cherry bed.
Stuart came to play this morning. Let’s just say he’s not a morning creature : )
