Ball Jar & Chevron Dishes

I frequently use paper plates to serve our meals on.   Not only are they budget friendly,  but come in so many pretty patterns.....

The plates I am using today came from Tuesday Morning.   I loved the combination of ball jars with a pretty chevron pattern around the edge.    

Don't they set a pretty table?

The pink gingham checked tablecloth came from a yard sale,  it is actually a shower!.   It was still in the plastic bag and had never been opened.   It was marked on clearance $29...from cost $3!

When I was photographing the tablescape,   I realized that I had not shown you ......

The wooden buildings that I bought at an estate sale a few months ago.

The adult children of "Shelia" were having an estate sale in her home.   I talked to her daughter about these buildings and found out that her mother had painted them.years ago.   There was quite a collection of them and I was able to purchase a set of 5.

Tuesday Morning also had the matching dessert plates and napkins.

Thank you so much for stopping by!


  1. Love those paper plates and your little city!


  2. And no washing or chipping your favorite vintage plates…who would know…these plates are adorable!

    And the buildings are quite a find, too. Sandi

  3. there are so many things I love in this post Penny! I have never seen the paper plates with these patterns, we use paper all the time so I guess I need to start looking closer. The shower curtain table cloth is so pretty, and I LOVE the stain glass window!!

  4. I've never seen such lovely paper plates. I suppose I'm going to have to start shopping at Tuesday Morning! Great price on the curtain/table cloth too! Enjoy the upcoming weekend! Blessings, Cindy

  5. Good Morning Penny
    I have never heard of Tuesday Morning, we don't have that store here in CT. I just adore your plates though. They are so pretty and look so great with your entire table setting. The whole thing is so soft and invting looking. You are the best at setting a table
    have a great day
    love the buildings

  6. I like Tuesday Morning for paper plates and napkins as well - they have a wonderful selection. I am now on the lookout for your pretty canning jar style. What a great find you have in those lovely buildings, along with the story. Happy weekend! Jane

  7. Oh how I miss shopping at Tuesday Morning. Love those plates - now I will be on the hunt for them!

  8. I haven't been to Tuesday Morning in a while. Guess I will have to go again soon! Hope I can find some pretty plates like that. With 3 little boys, I use paper plates a lot to save time on washing dishes. ;-)
    Beautiful dining room!

  9. I fell in love with your pretty and romantic table. The paper plates are so lovely and their patterns too.

  10. Hi Penny, We went to two Estate sales today and didn't buy a thing except a few little kitchen tools. Gorgeous things and furniture of the Mission Inn here in our town. No room in our home for things like that..without getting rid of something..and there is nothing I really want to get rid of at the moment. So we came home nearly empty handed.

    I too love paper plates and use them from time to time. Yours are beautiful. Those buildings were an especially wonderful find.
    Your table settings are always so sweet and this one set with paper plates was especially lovely.

  11. Penny,
    Love the plates, the tablescape and those sweet buildings!! So pretty!!
    I finally finished my Craft room and it is posted in 2 different links so drop by when you have some time.....


  12. I love those plates and you set such a pretty table with them! I haven't seen that particular pattern at any of our Tuesday Mornings but now I'm going to have to look more carefully! What a nice thing for those children to know that someone is going to love something their mother made.
    Have a lovely weekend,

  13. I love Tuesday Morning! They have such great stuff. Thanks for linking up at the Weekend Blog Hop at My Flagstaff Home!


  14. Oh how adorable. I haven't seen such cute paper plates ANYWHERE. Thanks for another place to check. :)


  15. I have never seen such beautiful paper plates before, I will have to keep that in mind for any up coming parties, it all made for a wonderful table setting, great deals and finds too!

  16. I must confess that I never use paper plates, but I have also never seen any this pretty. I'll be taking a more serious look at them the next time I shop.

  17. So pretty! Paper plates sure have come a long way!!

  18. Oh how pretty. Love the design on those gorgeous plates.


  19. Stunning table Penny, I never would have guessed that they were paper...not in a million years!

  20. So lovely and unique! love the dishes and the fact they are so easy to 'clean' is a bonus!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
