For all of us who love dishes, Portugal is tableware heaven!
Handmade and painted in bright colors, the pottery lends itself to creative tablescapes.
Traditional themes include roosters
and quirky animal shapes.
Blue and white is an oft used palette, one that many of you would like.
In addition to handmade pottery, there are wonderful porcelains for which Portugal is also well known. With so many choices, how does one decide?
As if the dishes are not tempting enough, there are lovely linens to make us drool. The naturals with their embroidered accents are appealing,
but the jacquard cloths in beautiful patterns and subtle colors are irresistible. Which would you choose?
It would be fun to return home with at least one collection of dishes, but the price and cost of shipping make that difficult, so we’ll just have to dream and continue looking for those special buys at thrift shops, garage sales or TJ Maxx!
Thanks for traveling with me today. Let’s join
