Dishin' With Metlox On The Poppy Trail

It's been way too long since I 'Dish Blogged'.
Before you know it, summer will be over and past time for 'Summery Table Settings'.
Not that the end of August is a good time to have a 'Sit Out and Dine Time'.
At least not in Texas....in August....in three digit temps.
Regardless of the heat, it is time for 'Dishin' and when I make up my mind to drag out the dishes, iron a table cloth, and pretty much go through closets and hutches for just the 'Right Stuff' to put on a TableScape Show...by golly I'm going to do it up right.  
So, here's  the 'Dishin' With Metlox Show.
The California company that eventually developed into Metlox Pottery was actually started around 1920
by the Prouty family who sold their wares as ProutyLine Products.
 Combining parts of the words “metal” and “oxide,” the substance that gives pottery its vibrant colors,
eventually resulted in the Metlox moniker.

Even though it was a bit warm for an 'Outside Under the Lattice Patio Party' thanks for stopping by!
Now, how about a Texas Size Glass of Sweet Tea?
Let's go in 'Under the AC Vented Patio'!

  9. Hello Sue, my longtime friend is back in CA and I am have fun visiting my best blogging pals. That would be you. Darn it all, I am always playing catchup. No company until Thanksgiving. YAY!!! lots of time for my computer at last.

    Your table looks perfect for a hot day in cool green and white. My favorite colors. You ironed in that heat??? I'm impressed. Your table is very inviting and perfectly lovely. Did you eat outside too? Smile. The history about the dishes was interesting to read. Good job.

    Happy days to you and yours my dear blogging friend.
    Hugs, Jeanne xo
