Mr & Mrs Hare Visit the Roberts Woodland (by Ridgway)

I set the table with a set of transferware dishes we use daily in our house.  Although this is a vintage set, I run it through the dishwasher every day...and with six kids, trust me...these get used!  The pattern is Woodland by Ridgway.  On this particular night we had what my kids have dubbed 'Brinner' (when we have breakfast for dinner) and it's one of their favorite meals.


Mr. and Mrs. Hare hopped over for some of my hubbies Swedish Pancakes and my Canadian Bacon Casserole.

The Woodland pattern is also named Aimcee.  I like the muted colors of brown, blue, gold and green in the pattern and paired it with a floral tablecloth in the same.  Mr. & Mrs. Hare are dressed to match!





I'm linking up with Tabletop Tuesday @ A Stroll Thru Life, hosted by Marty and Susan's weekly Tablescape Thursday hosted by her gorgeous blog Between Naps on the Porch

  1. What a beautiful pattern and how lucky for you to have it to use for everyday! Just beautiful.

    Love the concept of "Brinner". I'll have to try that one out on my children. Sometimes on a weekend when we've had a late breakfast, we have "Dunch", lunch and dinner together.

  7. I saw Mr.& Mrs Hare on a magazine cover a few years ago & couldn't find them anywhere! I would love to know where you found them! I'm sure they enjoyed "brinner" too!

  11. The rabbits are enchanting! Thanks for stopping by my blog today & the sweet comments. The header is a photo from Chihuly exhibit in Pittsburgh, PA at their conservatory. He does blown glass work & it is amazing. The works are designed to imitate nature. When I saw the bowls & a couple of other arrangements, I immediately thought about how it would be to capture the colors in fabrics (batiks, etc). One day!

  16. Beautiful table setting. I'm glad that you posted for I thought of you today. I have ran across your blog from time to time during blog parties and have been so attracted to your wonderful collection of transferware. Today I was out thrifting and happened upon 4 lovely little bread plates in a beautiful shade of green with some pink flowers and a sweet little blue bird. Sorry, I don't remember the name of the pattern printed on the back but they were made in England. My thoughts immediately went to "the blog about transfeware"...your blog! Anyways, I left them because they were $15.00 but those little plates are haunting my thoughts. I might have to go back tomorrow! :) Just might be the beginning of another collection.

  27. Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I just LOVE your table setting. Those plates, with all of the color added, well, it's just "my cup of tea"... I love Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit. Such a perfect centerpiece. And "Brinner", well, I've got to remember that one ~ so very cute :)

  28. Nancy, your table is so pretty. I have one of those plates that I found at a shop here in OKC. I put it on a plate stand periodically for display. Your table and your home is beautiful!

  29. This is my first time at your blog and I just want to say that if your children sit down for dinner every night to eat at a table like this they will have some really amazing memories and traditions going for them. I commend you.
    Most folks can't even seem to get dinner on the table at all, let along have their children sit with them.
    I hope that you blog spurs people to think about the importance of dinner as a place of beauty, good food and conversation again.
    Thank you.

  30. Nancy, you have created such a lovely tablescape. I love you bunnies and they go so well with your beautiful transferware. I especially LOVE your entire dining room. I've been staring, eh drooling, over it for about 15 minutes now. I keep clicking on the pictures to enlarge them and admiring the room over and over again. I've even been looking at the house plan I want to build one day to see if I can arrange my furniture just like yours. It is just my style and absolutely gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing it with me. I'll definitely be back a lot!

  33. Oh I LOVE Mr. and Mrs. Hare! They are so pretty. I have the Ridgways Apple Blossum. Every time I see a Ridgways pattern, I think their patterns would look pretty combined on a table. It seems that there are number of patterns with similar colors. Lovely tablescape. laurie

  34. Thank you for all the sweet remarks. I got Mr. and Mrs. Hare about 8-12 years ago and I'm pretty certain I bought them at a store here called Sunshine Warehouse that carried decorative home items, they now carry furniture exclusively. For those of you who asked about them you might try Ebay or other online auctions. I am online at auctions alot so if I see some I'll post or let you all know! I think they're pretty cute too!
