NY Times Crossword Breakfast

Good Morning! Ready for Breakfast?
Luckily college kids like to sleep in so I had time to take pictures, it was almost noon before we ate any of this.  It was more like lunch for my husband and I!
 Our youngest is home from college for the weekend so I thought I would use the new dishes we brought back from our trip to New York City for a nice breakfast.  I thought these NY Times Crossword Puzzle dishes were the cutest thing.
I found the plates at a store called Fishs Eddy.  It is the coolest, kind of vintage dish store with tons of character.  I would have liked to have bought a lot more - but this was about all I could carry in my luggage.  As it was I was worried that these would make it home in one piece.  If you are in NYC and you love dishes, I highly recommend a trip to this store - it is on Broadway at 19th st.  They do have a web sight @ www.fishseddy.com for the online shoppers!
I also bought the Initial Mugs on this trip.  They are from one of my favorite stores to visit in NYC, Anthropologie.  This store always has the most creative displays.  I am always in awe of their windows and vignettes about the store.  
We enjoyed our bagels and scones,
While our youngest downed just about the whole pitcher of milk and a muffin.
Tom brought home this little bouquet of flowers while he was out this morning, they were perfect for my little creamer.
A real crossword puzzle awaits. 
I hope you enjoyed your weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love this table! I'm a nut for dishes as well, and would have fallen in love with this set too. As many times as I've been to New York, I've never been to this shop, so am heading to the website next. You did a lovely job pulling it all together. Wish I could have joined you for breakfast.

  3. I really like these plates, so cute!...Christine

  4. Oh my goodness, those are the cutest plates ever! What perfect dishes for breakfast! The flowers in the creamer are such a sweet touch, it all looks so inviting and fun! I had to immediately dash over to fish eddy to check out their wares, thanks for sharing the site, great stuff!

  5. Oh, those plates are adorable! I can see why you had to bring them home! My father-in-law would love them, as he is a crossword puzzle wizard. I need to plan a trip to that store -- sounds so fun!

    I hope you'll come see My Daughter's Master Bath Redo! #83 at Met Monday.

  8. Those plates are so much fun! Never seen any like them. :)

  16. Darling crossword puzzle plates!! And the monogrammed mugs. No Anthropologie around here.. sadly. .I am going to check out Fish Eddies.. thanks.. xo marlis

  17. I have never been to Fish's Eddy, but put it on my list of places to go to on my next trip to NYC (never even heard of it!) Love the dishes and also love Anthropologie! Wish I could be at your home for breakfast :-)

  18. Those plates are absolutely the cutest! It sounds like you had tooo much fun in NYC and a wonderful weekend too!

  19. Ann, what cute crossword puzzle plates. I've admired those Anthropologie mugs for awhile. You put everything together so creatively.

  20. I have never been to Fish Eddy's, but I have been on the website. You created a darling table with those cute crossword plates. I, also, love the aqua colored plates and napkins. I am sure that your son appreciated the effort you put into preparing such a nice breakfast for him!

  21. I just laughed and laughed and laughed about your child who poured the milk down his throat! I am a SUPER milk lover, and I am often accused of doing the very same thing! It's just so good!!! I can't help it! I can easily get through a gallon of milk all by myself in a week's time around here! If these aren't just about the cutest dishes EVER!!! What a great find! I will most likely never visit NYC (I don't care to fly), but I have heard about that Fishs Eddy's a couple of times in the past week. I'm going to visit their website to see what fun things they have. This was a really, really well-planned and put together table, Ann! I love the creamy...what are we calling that color? Seafoam?....that you set against the black & white. It's a soft color, but it really holds its own. The bouquet was the perfect ending touch! Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!

  22. Cute, cute, cute. Perfect table for breakfast or probably any time ones like to have fun, work a crossword puzzle, and laugh with family. Love those crossword plates! They makes the table and I am certain it is exactly the look you were wanting. Sweet flowers from hubby too.

  23. This table setting is adorable. I love the plates and cups. I noticed the cups were your initials. How sweet of your hubby to bring you flowers - they were a nice touch to your beautiful table.

  24. You are just so talented! Breakfast never looked so good.
