I put out all my red, white and blue summer decorations last month. In past years I've left my spring teapots and tea cups on the buffet and dry sink, but this year I put them away because I wanted to find some patriotic dishes for the summer. I've been looking and looking but couldn't find anything. Yesterday I thought to check the "one stop shopping center" where I get my groceries. I don't know why I didn't look there before, as that's where I found the great fall things a couple years ago. Wouldn't you know it - they had just what I've been looking for! And since the 4th is almost here they were all on sale for 25% off. I love how they look. I don't know what it is about new dishes - they just make my heart sing. I think if I had the storage room and money I'd have as big a stash of dishes as I do of fabric!
