I am so happy that KC is living near us and we can see each other frequently.
We shop nearly every weekend, but, shopping with KC is not conducive to keeping to a budget.
Last Saturday when we drove to Huntington Beach to make beer, we stopped at The Grove in Los Angeles on our way home.
We went into Crate and Barrel just to "look around", but I found this colorful flatware.
The flatware is designed by Paola Navone for Crate and Barrel and I love her fun shapes and colors.

I do not need any flatware.
I already have a variety of colorful pieces to use in table settings.
But, KC convinced me that I should buy them if I like them.
So, these fun forks, knives and spoons are now
in my cupboard surrounded by polka dots and solids.
I am a total oddball because I must be the only American in blogland not featuring Thanksgiving or Christmas decor.
For tonight's dinner, I went with red, white and blue.
I love to mix and match my table setting and my new flatware is perfect for mixing it up.
My favorite part is that Paola Navone threw in a single setting of solid red with all the blue and white patterns.
My centerpiece is quite small - very few flowers blooming in the garden right now.
And for those of you who read about my great fortune in receiving the beautiful Pfaltzgraff Pistoulet dishes from Kris at Junk Chic Cottage, here is where the tureen ended up.
There isn't much holiday decor here yet - I am still trying to decide which dishes and flatware to use for Thanksgiving.
But, by next week, I won't be such an oddball.
