Details, Details, Details

Thursday, October 29, 2009

So, I was eating dinner Sunday night (homemade beef stew, which was quite delicious...I was extremely proud of myself), and I noticed something. Can you see it?

(By the way, I hope it doesn't gross you out to see my half eaten food. Sorry!)

Every stinkin' dish or glass had some kind of detail on it! Then I started strolling through the house to see what else I could find...and yep...not one "normal" dish or glass to be found.
Let's have a look, shall we?

Bees...


Beading...


Scallops...and Misc Detail Loveliness


Yep, apparently I just can't get enough of the stuff. And I'm okay with that...as long as guests don't start asking questions or referring to me as "The one with all the wacky dishes." :-)
And since you may ask, I bought the goblets with the bees at World Market, the small glasses with the beading at Williams Sonoma (I believe they've been discontinued), and pretty much everything else at TJ Maxx, Home Goods or Marshalls. Although, the plates were all made in Portugal....in case that helps.

I’m in love with those bee glasses. One of the blogs I follow is hosting a giveaway for the same glasses. I didn’t know you could get them at World Market. I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that I win the giveaway but if I don’t I will be heading to Work Market!
Love all the details….they just make things more fun!

I love the first photo! Everything in it- the bowl with the beading, the blue door in the background, the flowers, the lighting... love, love, love!

Life is too short to have only plain dishes.

You are just a girl who loves embellishments! I love the goblets too.

Rats. I was loving those beaded glasses from WS...too bad they're not available anymore. I love all the detailing you have! :)

Marcus and I made an amazing beef stew this week. My husband thanked us and requested next time that we make more.

Girl, you are showing us that unconsciously you like extra detail, little bead work, and extra scallop. And why not? I bet in jewelry you'd pick something with a little extra detail work, it seems to please your soul. :)

I seem to have detail on a lot of my things too! Guess it fancies them up!

Hi AnNicole. Thanks so much for leaving such a nice comment on my post about my dining table redo. I worked really hard on it and I'm thrilled that other people like the way it turned out. :)

Love all your little detailed plates and such. I also have a thing for beading detail on stuff. I'm obsessed. :)
