The cute Jam and Jelly is a Holt-Howard collectible.....They were made in the late 1950's.....

Summertime is not complete without a few butterflies.....

I am using my Fiesta Ware Dishes.... I think you can dress them up or you can dress them down.....

Pink Fiesta bowl....

I thought I would dress the Fiesta up with this wonderful Spode desert plates that I found at an estate sell...

They are just so beautiful...

Pink Fiesta Dinner Plate...

Oh how I love Summer....
