Do you ever catch yourself being attracted to something simply because of the details?

Yeah, me too. I want this scrolly and dot pattern etched on to my chairs and bags and maybe I could add it to this blog’s design?

grateful for simple blessings

You can find this pattern on the Ever Grateful Collection just released by Nesting Place’s friend and Sponsor, DaySpring.  The design and message is based on Ephesians 5:4, Let there be thankfulness to God.  Not only do they offer these dishes, bowls, salad plates, mugs, trivets and vases in various colors {cue dramatic music and glistening beams of sunlight}…

always blessed, ever thankful

Somehow DaySpring snuck into my family room before I even redid it and created a pattern and perfect shade of green {called wasabi} that happens to look stunning with my current decor.  Thankyouverymuch.

As usual, I have a few items that I’m especially fond of.  Like the cake stand and the platter {remember, you can hang platters!}.

This pitcher is another one of my favorite pieces.  As much as I love to collect pretty dishes, I can’t afford to have lots of pieces hidden away that only serve one purpose.  That’s why I like to have things that I can display and use in other ways.  This pitcher doubles as a vase, the platter doubles as a tray, the cake stand is great to group candles, shells, books {not that I don’t wish I had cake every day} and any and all of the plates are pretty enough to hang on the wall or be displayed in my hutch.  When you buy dishes, you don’t want to buy them thinking they will be packed away in a cabinet 90% of the time, buy things that you can use and enjoy as much as possible.  I even use the shapely coffee cup as a vase.

The collection combines all of my favorite things, beauty, meaning and usefulness.

You can get a couple of accent pieces, or an entire place setting {which is conveniently on sale right this moment}.  Very well appointed I might add with the layering of the scrollies and dots with the squiggly edges.  I’m sure they discussed that in their meetings.

Oh, and remember that Memo Board with the easel that you all saw at my Blessings Unlimited Party?  It’s part of the Ever Grateful Collection as well!  This was one of those pieces that everyone was commenting about.  I’ll take 4 please.
