Well, anyway, long before the doors closed for good (having my dish addiction at an early age....), I purchased some "oriental-style" dishware. Then they sat. For well over thirty years.....until yesterday when Pat pulled them out of the cupboard and set a table for one.
Over view of the table
The place setting - Pat actually used a small tray (that was designed to hold the teapot and cup) as a dinner plate/liner for the soup bowl.
The Jade tree was a gift from our brother to our Mother over forty years ago
This small tray is actually for egg rolls
One last look
Flatware......just in case the chop sticks aren't working so well.....
Bamboo Placemat - Pier 1 years ago
All Oriental-style Dishware - Globe Imports
Chop Sticks - local Supermarket
Navy Blue Napkin - Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Bamboo Flatware - Shafer's Hardware (a locally owned hardware store that still has all the great stuff old fashion hardware stores used to have)
Jade Tree Arrangement - Our Mother's (a gift from our brother when he was stationed in Japan in 1969-1970)
