Willow Lane Dinnerware, by Park Designs


I love working regular days at the store now, because it seems like each week I'm there, something gets changed.  New things are put out, something is moved around, the dinner table is set differently...something so that people can enjoy different displays whenever they walk in.  Last night Chris and I stayed late to move several displays around, and then I set out one of the newest lines of pottery by Park Designs.

As my mom would say, the new Willow Lane line is "cooler than cool!"  Not only is the folk art sheep and willow tree hand painted details so very fresh and welcome to the primitive / folk art home, the deep rich black and tan color scheme is gorgeously striking!

And always, there are matching linens too.  Right now we just have the napkins, placemats, and dishtowels, but they also have valances, tiers, chair pads, rugs, runners, and tons more.  I'll continue to bring in more of the line, as it is just so pretty and is a great new everyday display.
