In My Next Life I Want To Be Yvonne!

Ok, so if you know me at all, you know that among others, I adore Yvonne @ Stone Gable. If you haven't stopped by Yvonne's blog you should! Not right yet though, I'm not done whining.... errrr.... talking.

You see she has this one set of dishes that everytime she uses them I drool....


.... I whine....


.... I cry....


.... I downright throw a tantrum worse than the bitty one!


I looked at my Home Goods. Don't you like how I refer to it as "my Home Goods" as if they specially put the store there just for me? Well anyways, I looked cause that is where Yvonne got them. They were ALL gone! Gone and no longer to return.


Except for in Yvonne's beautiful tablescapes. In case you are wondering I am talking about the bottom dish in the above picture that I stole without asking. Isn't her photography beautiful? Ugh, and you should see the fantabulous food she serves on them too.

Well.... no longer will I suffer from dish envy! It only took me 3 stores but I found 8 plates and 8 salad plates


Aren't they gorgeous?


I am planning their maiden voyage on a tablescape. Maybe they will make their debut on Valentines Day? I know it was well worth the wait.


Kinda made all the whining and crying worthwhile. Every time I look at them I think of Yvonne.

Ok, I am done talking now. You can mosey on over to Yvonne's to read all her drool worthy posts.

In the meantime.... I will be trying to find a way to con her out of those gorgeous leather chairs....

Yvonne's tables are a work of art. So glad you could find some fabulous additions to your collection.

You can whine all you want! Dishes do that to me, too! I have so many sets I need to inventory them! Whenever J says, "Are these new?" I just respond, "Huh-uh. We used these last Winter!" And he usually says something like, "Oh, yeah!"

Shhhhhh. Don't tell J! Now I am off to Yvonnes. I have never been :0

Yeah for you and what a great price!! I too love her posts ~ I drool over her menus and her tablescapes are amazing. I imagine her dining room being one huge wall of built ins with cabinets full of dishes. Those are so pretty and versatile ~ I cannot wait to see you Valentines table. xo

Lyndy said...

I love them too. Can you tell me who makes these?

Lovin' your new dishes, glad you found them! Can't wait to see your tablescape, and I'm a fan of Yvonne too:@)

Hi Maggie,
I love those plates of Yvonne's. I have similar ones and stack them as Yvonne does. That was great that you found some and, what a great price. I will now go and have a look at Yvonne's blog.
Enjoy your plates Maggie!! XXXX

Love them! Use them now before Valentine's Day. They will make you happy! :) Off to Marshalls!

Southern Lady said...

I love them! So glad you were able to find them. I agree with you about Yvonne...her blog is one of my very favorites! Those who haven't visited her, need to hurry up and do so! Carla

Jacqueline said...

I love Yvonne's too, even before I became a blogger, my sister Joni (redcouchrecipes.blogspot.com) had me go over and take a look. I am so glad you got those dishes. Home Goods drive me crazy with how few plates we get at a time. I found some of these same ones in red this Christmas - I went to 4 stores and only found them in 2. They will be in my Valentine's too. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch said theirs gets 24 at a time - I need to go where she lives!

You will love them, I have them in white too in charger size.

Lyndy said...

Thanks so much for your reply. I will just have to look for them. Goodness, I hope I don't find every color, I might not resist. :-)

Can't wait to see your tablescape.

PBKISSES said...

You GOT them- I am SOOOOO jealous- I want them too! Wish I could get to Marshall's like NOW! Isn't Yvonne so amazing??? I am always just in awe of her work! And you just crack me up!

Jacqueline said...

Oink!! I am glad you oink, came and shared your oink, hogburger experience with me! Oink, Oink.

Really it was fun to hear back from you! I knew I should stop at half, but I was a total oinker and ate the whole piggy thing! Glad you liked it!

thepurplerose said...

O.K. That is not fair!!! We were supposed to go shopping together and you went without me and got those fabulous plates!!! OMG---did I just blow the surpise???!!! You're giving those to me for Christmas aren't you???!!! Don't worry, I'll act surprised on Christmas morning. By the way did you find out where she got the purple toille ones???

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Love these too! I had no idea they were so well priced. I guess I could store them under the bed!

FinsFan said...

Those are amazing plates and Yvonne sets a wonderful table. She is however taking a break, but will be back, hopefully soon, working her table magic. Congrats on the plates. Joni

Bead and Needle said...

They are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous - congratulations on the find...here's hoping Yvonne will just gift you with the chair and save you from another search! :-) Happy White Wednesday

ButterYum said...

I've asked Yvonne to adopt me, but so far, my request has fallen on deaf ears. :)

Seriously thought, she's one of the greatest bloggers out there, and I'm blessed to call her friend!
