After my "Squirrel, Acorn and Oak leaf" post, I got a comment from reader, Karen asking me if I knew about a silver-plate pattern called Charter Oak.
I immediately started googling this pattern and found some beautiful pieces on Ebay.
This pattern is made by 1847 Rogers and was first introduced in 1906, the year our house was built. Hmmm, what a coincidence!
I'm wondering why I didn't know about this already?
Even the back is pretty!
Thanks Karen for introducing me to this pattern depicting oak leaves and acorns, some of my favorite design motifs.
Hopefully, I will win a few pieces on Ebay...
Another reader, Marian also told me about this wonderful oak leaf charger from Horchow and Neiman Marcus.
Here is a close-up of the pattern.
I can only imagine how much fun a tablescape would be featuring this charger, silverware and my red and white transferware featuring squirrels and acorns.
Unfortunately, at $85 each, I am going to have to pass this one up.
Hopefully, it will go on sale someday.
Thanks for sharing Karen and Marian!
So now it's my turn to share.
A reader tipped me off to the brand "Murchison-Hume."
Since I bought this dish soap on sale at Anthropologie last year, it didn't occur to me that it would be available anywhere else. I was just happy to keep refilling it with generic dishwashing liquid.
What I discovered was a company based in Sydney, co-founded by a darling couple.
She is from California, he is from Australia. Together, they formed Murchison-Hume.
Their cleaning products are people safe, child safe, pet safe and plant safe.
And to think I bought it for the bottle!
