Mikasa Dinnerware

My newish, 8 pc. place setting of Mikasa Italian Countryside dinnerware. My favorite piece? The bowl. I see potato soup on a chilly fall evening in my future.

It took long enough (almost a year, and yes, I am ashamed to admit that. Honestly, though, do you not know me at all by now?) but I finally unpacked the dishes I won through a contest sponsored by Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch. It just so happened that I won, not one but, TWO sets of dinnerware just in time for the holidays last year.

Well, both sets remained in their shipping boxes in my garage until this past weekend when I decided it was time they see the light of day. Now, I know it's still officially summer but fall is in the air and as it is my fave of the seasons, it always puts me in a domestic sorta mood. Let me tell you, I cannot wait to use my new dishes.

The 8 pc. place setting also came

with 8 Christmas dessert plates (in 4 patterns).

I'll be sure to put pics of the Nativity dishes (that I won through Stone Gable) on closer to Christmas. I love them, too.

There's only one down side I can see to winning such great prizes...I'm running out of cabinet space.

Out with the old, in with the new! That's what I say when I get new dishes.

Running out of cabinet space is a good problem to have!

Lucky you! I love dishes, and white is my favorite!
