I began buying these farm dishes made by Debbie Dean when I lived in Austin and worked at Hormel's. I bought dinner plates, lunch plates, mugs, a divided baby dish, bowls—both cereal as well as serving. I also bought heart shaped platters and a pitcher. Here is a photo of one of the bowls.
This year I decided to decorate my dining room shelf with some of my fall things. The middle shelf has a treasured trio of straw girls. My friend Nancy gave this to me. The wooden carved goose on the top shelf I purchased in Germany. On that trip I also bought the clay church on the second shelf. I have had the apple girl and apple boy the top shelf for many years. They are from the designs of Carl Larsson.
