After the holidays I like to have dishes in the china cabinets that add cheer to the rest of winter. With our grey skies and plenty of rain here in the Pacific Northwest we need something bright and shiny.
Pretty pink and green depression glass are just the ticket!
And some blue glass in the side cabinet.
This pitcher is a favorite any time of the year - it is great for summer meals on the deck, as well as wintry meals set on a blue and white table.
A cute Shirley Temple milk pitcher for a breakfast table.
Green is a perfect color for winter in the Pacific Northwest - we are green all year round.
And pink adds a sparkle
Candy jars, vases and pitchers in green Depression Glass set atop the hutch in the dining room
The pink candy dish on the left, sitting on a serving platter, was a special gift from some friends in California. It has been one of their special wedding gifts 50 years before, and they shared it with us as a going away gift when we moved to Northern California.
Uh oh - a little bit of Easter is beginning to appear on the hutch.
Won't be long until it is full of spring and Easter
Watch for more springtime in the dining room - soon.
