Never, do I ever, come across Chintzware in my
Just this time! 
I prefer the ones that do NOT have the gold rim.
(these don't)

Can any of you tell me the name of the pattern? 
It doesn't say anything on the back.

Your chintz plates are lovely! I love the blue edge. New phone, eh? Lucky you! My oldie just makes calls and does text messages... may as well have a rotary phone tossed into my handbag! lol

see you there! said...

Happy Birthday to your dearest. Hope you didn't eat too much cake.

The dishes are pretty but I think a whole table setting would make me dissy - just a few here and there are perfect.
