I look forward to seeing as many posts as I can! You all do such wonderful tablescapes,
you are the reason I am addicted to dishes now. Enablers!!! LOL

This week, sort of a last minute throw together in the kitchen for lunch.
Not everyone likes to eat their greens, so thought I would put a bit of chocolate ( sort of)
with them and make them more interesting.
First of all let me show you a great photo of some Greentown Chocolate
Cactus Patterned milk glass.
Chocolate milk glass or Chocolate Slag Glass is rather rare to find. It is being reproduced by Martha Stewart and others but the old pieces are rather rare as only one company made most of it, Greentown Glass Co.
(Click on photos to enlarge)
Chocolate with my greens or Chocolate covered chickens, take your pick, LOL!
The table is set, come on in and have a bite of lunch with me!
I just love this shade of green with chocolate brown!!
Those are sort of the wedding colors for my son and his fiance's wedding
For the place setting I used my newer chocolate brown mats and napkins, porcelain napkin rings my mother's friend made us, Grandparents silver flatware, brown glasses from Walmart, green and brown Rozanna "La Famille" patterned dinner plates( I would love a whole set of dishes in this), brown rose toile plates from Marshalls and little Green patterned muffin plates by Harry and David, topped off in this place setting by my chocolate milk glass Hen dish. I wish I had 4 of the hen dishes for each place setting.
The hen dish is a commemorative piece done in 2003 by the National Milk Glass Collectors Society. You have to be a member to order them.
The society bought alot of old molds for history sake and also for making commemorative pieces like this for it's members.
Well it is a side ways table then, lol, at least in this shot.
at Joyworks in Snohomish, a rusty brown urn with a rose topiary in it,
and a chicken wire cloche with eggs in it.
