My Newest Addition to Meet the Challenge

On our recent vacation to New England, we did some Antiquing.  One of the stores had some brown printed dishes that I really liked.  They weren't antique transferware but pretty and versatile .... and cheap!  I purchased 8 pieces for just over $10!!!  They are the inspiration in my table today.   

 
 
Fall is in the air so I pulled out my white lidded pumpkin bowls.  
 
 
 
 
Here is a close up of my new 'old' dishes.  They included 2 dinner plates, 2 dessert plates, 2 soup bowls and 2 berry bowls. The plates are included in this setting.  I'm used my everyday dishes as chargers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Wonderful Hubby had a very  special neighbor lady as he was growing up.  The display plate is from her estate.  We purchased it many years ago at her sale.  The brown transferware stand is from a favorite local shop, All About Home, in Troy, Missouri. I think the lantern is from Hobby Lobby.
 
 
 
 
I'm planning on serving a variation of Ina Garten's Roasted Potato and Leek Soup later in the week as the temperature are scheduled to turn cooler. This setting will work nicely for the soup and crusty bread.  I'll post that recipe in a few days.
 
Hope you are enjoying some Fall weather, too!
