Accessories

In keeping with my new black and white theme (which, yes, I have adopted from my sister-in-law) we purchased these dishes. Actually, while back in the States I purchased some plastic dishes for this house. But because: 1) they haven't arrived yet and we needed something to eat off of 2) I only purchased a set of 4 and we will need more for company 3) plastic will be good for poolside dining which is what I had in mind and 4) Eric suggested it, we bought these.

As you can tell, I don't know how to photograph dishes!We need many more accessories around the house, but I am waiting until our things from home arrive so that I can see where the blank spots are. Well, that and I cannot buy everything in one fell swoop. I do have this one accessory which I purchased in Kenting. I am not a huge fan of baskets, never knowing quite what to put in them, but I absolutely love this wooden basket.


And that's it...all of my inside pictures for now.

Tonight we were treated to dinner at The Grand Hotel. We thought we were having dinner at a coworkers house, but in fact it was at the hotel. If I had known I would have brought my camera. It was spectacularly beautiful. I will get back there some day WITH a camera. Hopefully this week I will get some interesting photos of the area to share. I know they've been a bit boring lately.

What an amazing basket that is. Your black and white is very sensible, and so useful for out of doors dining.

I love it! I love the basket too. Put soap in it. That is what baskets (to me) are for!

Your house smells like a soap factory over here, by the way.

R - Your soap should arrive today and this house needs it! I packed at least 1 basket exactly for the purpose of showcasing your soaps!

Loved the "basket", So rustic. Didn't Marianne and Ginger have one of those?

Sharon, you're in a Gilligan's Island groove, aren't you?

I like to take pictures of dishes with food on them. It makes everything so much better.

At my house the dishes usually look better before I put the food on them. ;-)
