Life is a Picnic


We're taking dining into the outdoors this summer of brand new melamine dinnerware from Relish. Made to look just like pottery, but without the breakable factor, Relish is picnic perfection! We grabbed our favorite pieces to mix and match, plus a decked out cheese board, and headed outside.

Relish Melamine Dinnerware



What is melamine exactly? Glad you asked! It's a resin based plastic, which makes it extremely durable and almost shatterproof. While we don't recommend putting it in the microwave or oven, it's perfectly safe in the dishwasher. Our favorite color in this line is the white. We simply couldn't choose between the bead or scallop edge, so why not mix it together? 



Each plate and dish in Relish is molded from real pottery to get the look just right. The brand's pottery line Cabell's Designs was featured this past January in beautiful colors and styles, too!


Don't forget about serving pieces, too. With 2 platters and 2 large bowls, there's a shape and size for just about any dish you have planned.




A picnic wouldn't be complete without a cheese board! We kept it simple with just two cheeses, a little fruit, and fresh baked bread, of course.



The summer has just begun, and we already feel inspired by the constant sunshine and outdoor adventures. Share photos with us of all your dining adventure this season on social media. We'd love to see!

The Widow's Mite


24" x 16" | $325
The story of the "Widow's Mite" in Luke 21:2 tells of the woman who gave all she had. The Greek New Testament word for "mite" is "lepton." The first century had many beautiful and valuable coins, but the lepton, often crudely made, was the smallest and lowest valued coin. So Christ commended the widow not just for giving 2 coins, but for giving 2 leptons, all she had.







Feeling inspired, right? We're right there with you! Check out her work in person at Bella Vita, The Back Room, and online.
