Mikasa's Brava Rooster....Finally!
Welcome and thanks for stopping by. It's Thursday and all of the dish lovers will be linking up over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. I was fortunate enough to win these wonderful dishes at Anita's Far Above Rubies a few months ago. I had a few issues learning how to post and link, "new-blogger-itis can be chronic", ask me I know. So bear with me and the photography.
These beautiful dishes came in service for 8. They also have mugs and soup bowls. since I have a very small table I will be making another post with them, maybe a tablescape for soup and warm cider since the evenings are getting cool.
Mikasa has really done a wonderful job with these dishes. They are large and very well made. I am so impressed with their weight and quality. Thanks Mikasa! Mr. Rooster in the center was a birthday gift from my sister two years ago. He is a lawn rooster, I just could not allow him to be banished to the harsh outdoors.
He is doing a fine job protecting my new treasures. My dining room has become a home to all things chicken or rooster. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Look at the size of this guy. He is so amazing and his coloring is spot on.
Another handsome guy graces this plate. See the quality? A different rooster on each dish.
The bowls do not disappoint either. That is going to hold lots of yummy soup in style. Dont you think? Look away from the crooked candle. Someone needs more practice!
