Warning… this is one of my random posts. Enjoy!
Yesterday, Mrs. Cartwright and I spent a bit of time browsing the gift shop at Fort Vancouver. Within a few minutes of our arrival we zeroed in on some lovely reproduction Spode dishes. We were delighted to find them and we learned they are no longer being produced so we snatched a few before they are no longer available.
The patterns range from 1806 to 1816 and they are taken from the original copper plates. I am quite pleased with them.
Aaron and I have been doing a lot of work in our back yard. Cleaning out a ton of overgrown plants and weeds and landscaping it a bit. One of the things I have always wanted is a pavilion where we can have dinners and parties with protection from the elements, if needed. So, Aaron is setting about designing our garden tent, and I’m sooo excited for it to be finished.
This is the general idea and inspiration. We plan to put our current dining set outside when we get our new set this summer.
