Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready

WordPress posted the WPC this afternoon and here is an iPhone photo of the dining room table ready for guests to eat dinner. A tad grainy, soft focus, and dark and yet inviting to me and a good illustration of the weekly photo challenge: ready.

  1. Hey Ruth, just browsing through at the end of the day, dishwasher humming away and I find this – so warm, inviting and ready to share generous hospitality. Am sure it was a wonderful evening for you all!

  2. Great selection for challenge. Love the variety of dinner plates. Beautiful setting. I’m READY to eat. What’s for dinner.


  3. Great entry for the challenge, Ruth! Those plates look interesting. I wonder the subject matter and how many individual illustrations there were to the set. They sure give the table a nice look.

    • The Naïf pattern from Villeroy and Boch. My kids used to all want the fireplace and grandma in the rocking chair plate. No one wanted the turkey in a cart on the way to market. The salad and bread and butter are different scenes too. It is always a conversation starter when I set the table with these. Bought them in Germany about 26 years ago. They are pricey now.

  4. I love your spin on “Ready”.. perfect for food bloggers like us! Isn’t it neat how kids love a certain special plate when they eat… so many great memories today, Ruth. My kids loved a little plate that had compartments with pictures inside.. I think it was Elmo and Tomas the Train.. but can’t be certain. I’ll have to ask them, when they wake up… which will be around noon some time;) xo Smidge
