Tea Stands for Tuesday 6/14/16

Breakfast at the River House is ready.  Want to join me? 

The blue plate is more oval than it shows here.  Both plate and cup were thrifted.  And, yes, those scrambled eggs are a little too done. 

Here are some more thrifted dishes.  I'm trying to assemble a collection of mismatched colorful plates.  Think Fiesta Ware on a budget.  

Another dish still in the cart.  I think I saw these dishes at the Dollar store but anyhow it was a dollar at the thrift shop.

I will be posting more of my decorating plans for the River House in the future.  In a word COLORFUL.  

Do you use bright colors in your home?

Be sure to look in at Elizabeth's blog to see what others are up to this fine Tuesday morning.


  1. I love the idea of using bright dishes from thrift and/or dollar shops. A lot of my cups and plates etc come from our thrift shop here, it's good that things get a second lease of life in a new family. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. nothing like good food on colorful plates! Love your idea of fiesta ware on a budget:) Happy T day!

  3. I laughed at the phrase fiesta ware on a budget. I love that, and of course, I LOVE the colorful plates and cup you shared with us today. My life is colorful enough, I try to keep my home neutral!

    However, I look forward to seeing your colorful home soon. I certainly think we all need color in our lives, whether it's in our studios or our homes. Thank you for pointing all this color out to us for T this Tuesday. And thanks for sharing your coffee with us, too!

  4. Fiestaware on a budget...love it! I've been actually collecting other colorful dishes to pair with my Fiestaware lately. I may even part with a few of my original pieces...never thought I'd say that!!
    Happy T day!

  5. Breakfast looks inviting...and L♥ve the colorful plates!! I tend to have cream or white dishes and decor, but accent with colorful art and stitching. And you are a girl after my own heart because I love the bargain hunting at thrift stores! happy T day!

  6. I love the idea of mixed bright coloured plates. Your breakfast looks
    Happy T Day

  7. Love all your colourful finds,am looking forward to seeing your home evolve.
    Happy Tuesday

  8. Oh yes, very colorful! I like it! I hope you find more.
    Happy T-Day,

  9. Fiesta ware is what I thought of first when I saw your lovely collection Darla!
    Colorful sounds very nice and the hunt is a big part of the fun too I'm sure.
    Looking forward to more photos.
    Happy T Day to you

  10. Yes please I would love to join you, especially as bagels and scrambled eggs are one of my favourites! Love your colourful plate collection too! Happy T Day :-)

  11. I use LOTS of color, but sadly have found few colorful plates. I have a handful of ones in cobalt and dark green from yard sales, but they all have chips- I'm sure they would have gone to the antique store if they'd been perfect! I don't mind the chips, and the plates make me happy when I use them.

  12. Your breakfast looks delicious -eggs are just right for my hubby! I love the idea of mismatched brightly coloured plates. Not so bright in our flat but a few bright touches! Belated happy T day, Chrisx

  13. I like having mismatched china too. I collect vintage stuff from one particular maker.
