This a two part comment!
I love your Royal Worcester pattern Chamberlain and it is perfect with the fall colors. Your place settings are beautiful with the colored crystal and glassware. I love shopping for china. My love took us to the Royal Worcester factory and museum. I was so excited by the museum with the gorgeous china. We shipped our selections home and later one of the patterns we ordered over the phone was Sandringham. Royal Worcester was just one of the factories we went to but sadly the factory is gone, now. My favorite factory in England is Royal Crown Derby. My mother was the example I followed for she has acquired many gorgeous patterns over the years. My wedding china was Theo. Haviland Rosalinde and we have collected all the different pieces over the years. My husband and I travel and we look for sets of china. Our most recent trip was to Northern Louisiana and we had a car full of treasures when we returned home.

The second part is about your trip to Serves!
The photos are just so beautiful and they take my breathe away. It must have been overwhelming to view their beauty in person. I know how you felt not being able to shop in the store. I am glad you told how they pronounced the name Serves. This is like the name Worcester. My husband has placed the all china and crystal on a computer program to keep up with what we have and what I need to fill in. I buy what I enjoy and this is from the antique, vintage, bone china, porcelain, transferware, new, crystal, glassware, teapots, teasets, dessert sets, figurines. etc.
My husband is a dear and enjoys it, too. It would be so much fun to talk about china and crystal with you for you are so knowledgable and a lover of beautiful creations. I also try to read and research about the sets I acquire. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Pam

It's hard for me to believe that you didn't come out of the womb collecting beautiful china.....and glassware......and flatware......and linen!!!! You certainly have made up for lost time! This combination is just delightful.

I'm stopping by for a blog visit from Between Naps on the Porch today. I'm a urge fan of her tablescapes.
Autumn is my favorite time of year. The decorations, colors and textures that you chose are so beautiful.
What a festive table.


Very lovely. I love the pumpkin centerpiece. The bittersweet adds the perfect touch.


Your Chamberlain dishes are gorgeous and I love the sweet orange flowers in the plates, I think orange is very rare in china. Beautiful as always. Big hugs,


Isn't it great that we mature not only in age but in taste? I'm in the orange is not for me category too, but softer reds have wormed their way into my life! Your new find is going to be a great addition to your beautiful dishes and I can see it mixed in with many you have. I love your table. The bittersweet picks up the colors beautifully! xo marlis

Your Tablescapes have given me a greater appreciation of how mother nature has blessed us with a her natural beauty!


That pattern is unique...I have never seen this pattern. It's perfect for fall. The whole tablescape is fall-ulous!
