So the last thing I need is a new china collection and I have been resisting this china for a very long time.
It's from Anthropologie. The other day I was out shopping with my friend Deidra and
she wanted to stop in Anthropologie to look around.
I picked up this plate and said...I've always loved this china.
She said "Oh..I love it too...we both need it!"
So she bought me the above plate.
There are several designs in this collection and now I need one of each.
(which is why I'd been resisting buying it)
So thanks to Deidra, I'll be going back time to time and buying another dish till I have a set.
Each plate is cute in it's own way. But the lizard one is my favorite.
I wish the flamingo one was pink instead of red.
pretty little tea cups too
I love that it's almost time for flowers.
I was driving by the farmer's market on Reno and Pam's Plants had all their pansies out.
I could not resist. I bought some pansies to add to the ones that made it through the winter here.
Last night...a big goodbye to Deidra dinner was had at Picasso's on the Paseo.
Once a month they do a vegetarian dinner and wine tasting.
Each course was better than the last with the dessert ending the evening.
Have you ever had lavender flavored ice cream?
They served it with roasted figs and sprinkled with pistachio brittle.
Oh..my it was heavenly!
I said to everyone that I was so sad that I'd never have this dessert again.
Because it's not something they normally have on the menu and each month they
do and entirely different meal.
Deidra said I could make it myself. But that is seriously doubtful.
But it would be very nice to eat lavender ice cream on my new china!
