Show & Tell Friday...New Dishes!

It's "Show & Tell" Friday!

Hello my friends...TGIF!!!

Yeeehawwww...it's Friday and that means it's time for "Show & Tell"!

I always loved "Show & Tell" time at school...didn't you? Do you remember hunting around your house all week for just the perfect item to take to school...so you could show all of your classmates? Ohhhh...I loved those days! But wait...this fun doesn't have to end there...we have a "Show & Tell" time just for us adults!!! Do you have something around your house that you would just love to show to your fellow bloggers? Then this is the perfect event for you!!!

"Show & Tell" Friday is hosted by Kelli over at There Is No Place Like Home! Why don't you go and see what Kelli has for "Show & Tell" today...and while you're there you can see what all the other participants have as well!!! Thank you Kelli for hosting this fun filled Friday event!!!

"Show & Tell"
My New Dishes
I have new dishes...Oh yea, Oh yea!!! Oh my goodness, I must admit that I'm a dishaholic and I just get so excited when I see a set of pretty dishes! Okay...come on and admit it...chances are...you are a dishaholic too!!! So I'm preachin' to the choir here...I just know it!!! Hehe!!!
JC Penneys recently came out with a brand new set of dishes called...."WATER". I fell in love with them the moment I laid eyes on them....and I really wanted them! Now in my defence...I must say that I didn't just jump in and buy them right then and there. I did wait...considered the price...and the fact that I really didn't need another set of dishes...
but then....they went on sale!!!
Oh yea...it's a sale!!! Not only did they go on sale but because I'm a frequent Penney's shopper, I had a coupon for 20% off of all my purchases!!!
So now I'm looking at this set of dishes that were "love at first sight"...they were on sale...and I had a 20% off discount coupon!!! How could I NOT buy them??? Seriously!!!
Sooooo...I DID!!! Hehe!!!
Here they are....they are called "WATER"!

As you can see...they are stacked up. Why you ask? Because I'm such a tease and I don't want to fully reveal the beauty of these pretty dishes quite yet! I have plans to do a coastal tablescape for "Tablescape Thursday"....so you'll just have to stay tuned...wink!!!

Oooh...just look at these pretty dishes! The dinner plates have a heavily embossed border of different kinds of seashells. Oooh...I just love them!!!

The salad plates are also embossed...seashells, starfish, and crabs...OH MY!!!

I just love the shell shaped bowls!!!
And...if you look real close in the first photo (on the right)...you will see little shell shaped canape plates.
This set of dishes includes a four piece placesetting for four:
4 dinner plates
4 salad/dessert plates
4 canape plates
4 bowls
Now for the "good" part....
They originally sell for $162.00...I paid only $59.60!!!
Oh yea...Oh yea...I'm doin' the Happy Dance!!! Hehe!!!
Well my friends...thank you so much for letting me "Show & Tell" my new set of dishes! Stay tuned for...a sometime in the future...tablescape! I hope you have enjoyed my new dishes as much as I have! Please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here...I love visiting with you!!!
Happy "Show & Tell" Friday!!!
Love ya'll,

PS....Don't forget about "Sunday Favorites"!

Your new dishes are just the best. Both my husband and I are addicted to dishes, okay ALL of Williams Sonoma! Good thing there is no shopping here.

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Chari, I love the dishes. They are all just gorgeous, and such a great price. I am fast becoming a dishaholic and can't seem to help myself. lol I can't wait to see your tablescape. I love the pears too. Are they part of the new finds? Hugs, Marty

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

Those are beautiful! Every time you sit down to a lovely table, set with those dishes, I bet the food will taste even better on them because it was such a score!!!
Woo Hoo!

Melissa Miller said...

Chari they are stunning!
Great buy on them too.

Have a blessed and beautiful Mother's Day.

I'm surprised you could wait until the sale - I'm proud of you!

I also love the giant pears in the photo too!

Have a great weekend!

Dianne said...

You can put on a pretty aqua, tan or green tablecloth with these awesome plates. What a good bargain you got for them too!

Elena said...

Your dishes are beautiful and at such an amazing price! Thanks so much for sharing.

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

Wonderful!!! Is there anything better than new dishes?!!! One of favorite parts of blogland are all the other dishaholics out there...let's me know I am not alone;)!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

Those are fantastic! I may just have to get some for our summer months :0)
Hmm, maybe not...I really want to save for a new floor...
I know! I can enjoy your dishes through you and your posts....oh yea! oh yea!!!

Zaroga said...

They are beautiful dishes and you got a real bargain!

Keetha Broyles said...

Hmmmmmm your lovely shell dishes mnake me think of some "bone" dishes and platter that I've not shown on my blog yet - - - maybe I will one 'o these days.

YES - - - I'm already trying to decide which post to RERUN on Sunday. I'm having sooooooo much fun with your rerun idea!!!!

Brenda Kula said...

You won't believe this. But just about an hour ago I was on the JC Penney website looking at DISHES! Yes, I've fallen in love with them as well. Wonder if it has to do with Thursday Tablescapes, which I've just started contributing to? And tablecloths. I've been looking on eBay at them too! I'm looking for those dishes of yours. I just received an email from Penneys for some percentage off a certain amount. And I want to use it!

Salmagundi said...

Can't wait to see the latest tablescape with the new dishes! Have a great Sunday - sorry you can't be with your Mother and daughters. My Mother-in-law is 95 next week, so we will be spending the day with her and Bob's sisters (a 200 mile round trip). So, I won't get to see my own kids on Sunday. Mike is busy finishing up the school year, so probably wouldn't be coming down anyway. Our daughter and the grandkids will probably pop in tomorrow for a minute. I see them practically every day!! Take care, Sally

Bargain Decorating with Laurie said...

Chari, I cannot wait to see the wonderful sea shell tablescape you are going to create with these beauties! What a deal you got on them. You're so right. There's just no way you could pass up a deal like that! Have a wonderful weekend. laurie

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

What a fantastic deal. I love all the embossed seashells.
I also liked your chargers. I've been hunting for lace-cut chargers like Susan's. I've seen them at Horchow...for $150, yikes!
I'm going to be checking JC Pennys out. I know how addicting dishes can be. My credit card has been left with smoldering skid marks from my dishware purchases,LOL!

I hope you can come see my Mothers Day gift ideas.
Sweet wishes,

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Beautiful dishes, and a bargain at those prices! Can't wait to see your tablescape!

Thank you for such sweet comments on my blog!


Yellow Rose Arbor said...

P.S. - I'm looking forward to seeing your little chickadee dishes, they sound darling. Maybe Hobby Lobby will have more of those painted birds next Christmas.


Lisa Cobler said...

I love your dishes! Great deal!

Sonia said...


My precious friend, you made a great buy! Oh how I love coastal tablescapes! I grew up on the gulf coast and love white cottagy things and seashells with white candles...Can't wait to see your Thursday Tablescape! I would love to join Sunday favs,,,but alas I'm such a new blogger don't have any more old post to share...so I'll have to wait to participate when I get more content....hopefully that will be soon. I'm working on some new posts...thank you thank you for your encouragment! Miss Bloomers/Sonia

Simply lovely, Chandi. I am a dishaholic myself! ;) But I think it's a good kind of addiction... ;)

janet said...

oh my Chari, im not a dishaholic yet but after seeing your beautiful new dishes you could easily turn me into one, and girl i must have those pears too, might i be nosey and ask where you got them. I know i will be disappointed because im in Canada and i know you are going to say a store we dont have here. As for jcpenny, we dont have one but i love that store and have ordered a few things from there. I can hardly wait to see your table all dressed up with your new dishes.

Chandy said...

You are the bomb, Chari! I love, love those dishes and also salivated over them at Penney's. But the steep competition is over at Kohl's so I'm watching both! Yeah!

Designs on 47th Street said...

Well, way to tease us!! You know we are waiting with baited breath for the revealing! Those dishes look like so much fun, Chari! Can't wait to see your tablescape for summer. oh lala!

What beautiful dishes. I just bought a new set also. There are times I wonder what on earth I am doing with so many dishes.
I can't believe you got such a deal on those! Wow! What fun you are going to have..enjoy!

Elena said...

Bargains are always lots of fun but when it's for something you love to collect makes it extra special.
Enjoy using your new dishes.

Elena :)
