Sorry I Missed My Post Yesterday. I've Been Charged With Running All Around Chicago From The Moment I Awoke This Morning Until JUST NOW. Tried Blogging From The Phone But That's A Tough Row To Hoe. Ever Seen THIS Russel Wright Dinnerware Pattern? Status: Left Behind.
Yeah, I got totally high-jacked today. Seems that's how it goes when you're out of town visiting others. Your time is not your own. I haven't watched TV in Three Days. I NEED some serious down time. But it's not been Bad by any means, just overstimulating.
Take today for example. Got up, picked up the Girlfriend's G-ma and met the Uncle for
breakfast. Dropped of the Girlfriend and G-ma at Macy's for shopping and the Uncle at
home. Got an hour and a half to look through Edgewater Antique Mall then had to pick up
Uncle and head back to pick up Girlfriend and G-ma. Drop off G-ma and drive directly to
Theater to see Blue Man Group. Done with Blue Men, drive back to pick up G-ma and
head out to fantastic Indian dinner. Drive back to G-ma's and drop her and Uncle off and
then right back to near restaurant to have drinks with our gracious host for the weekend.
That's been my day. Exhausting.
As I alluded to above, I tried and failed to do this posting on my phone. The phone has the
capacity to do this but it's a serious PAIN and it's a SLOW process. I headed out to the car
while everybody else was having libations at a local watering hole to make the attempt. 45
minutes later I realized I wasn't going to get it done before midnight so I just gave up. Fail.
Anyway, have you ever seen this pattern by Russel Wright before? The pattern is called Grass
and the dinnerware is by Knowles. It's hard to see in these phone camera pics but the base
color is a very subtle mint or maybe seafoam green. The pattern and color is so subtle that I
almost passed right by the set.
I wish I could have afforded to bring the set home but...for real, do I NEED another set of
ANYTHING Russel Wright...or really dinnerware in general? Nope. Not that it stops me
when the dinnerware in question is a stupid silly bargain! But alas, this is not what I picked
up at the Edgewater Antique Mall today. To see THAT you'll just have to be patient!
