In the Potting Shed with Pfaltzgraff Naturewood


 I’m in the Potting Shed with

some of my perennial favorites. . .


. . .Bird houses, bee skeps, watering cans and pots

for a little companion planting

and tabletop gardening with

Naturewood by Pfaltzgraff! 


A study of botanical beauty,

Naturewood dinnerware is rendered in a soft,

natural color palette.


Detailed sketches of leaves and framed potted herbs

border the plates along with and delicate stripes

and accents of garden elements.


A stem and leaf design trails along

Avery flatware by International Home,

sprouting from garden gloves.



I laid a foundation of a jute runner and rustic woven

chargers for a textured landscape for the dinnerware.


I found an herb marker and pencil set in the garden

area of Target this spring for marking herbs and pots. . .


But they would be equally fun for marking 

each place setting with guests’ names!


A coordinating chalkboard provides

a handy place for memos or lists.



And ceramic handled spoons are

decorative as well as functional. . .


 With an embossed bee and bee skep

design and handy hole for hanging.


Embossed salad plates and

stemless wine glasses are also

abuzz with a bee skep design.




  Naturewood offers a lasagna baker with

 the even-heating quality of stoneware.


As well as set of 3 round nested tins for 

decorative and functional for storage.

    Very cute Mary! In looking out the window I see things are greening up nicely for you-Enjoy:@)

    Hi Mary, I just popped over to the Pfaltzgraff site and they have so many wonderful pieces in this collection! The two birdies on the memo board are the sweetest little cuties. I think this pattern would work so wonderfully in a garden setting on a hot day with the cool, refreshing green color and delicate drawings. It looks like your little shed has settled in comfortably in the new spot. The view out of the window is beautiful — I am wondering if that is the wildflower field. Have a wonderful Spring day!

    I used to visit a Pfaltzgraff “seconds” store and Naturewood was my favorite. I thought it was made just for folks who love the garden (gardener or not)! Fun post. Thanks, Mary!

    Super cute, Linda. All the details you’ve added are what really make it so outstanding.

    Good morning Mary…glad to see you’re still in the potting shed. I’ve always loved the Naturewood pattern. In fact, it’s one of my favorites, and I have many wonderful pieces. You’ve inspired me to pull it out today and begin using it. We usually use it during our gardening season, but it ‘s still a little chilly here for that.

    I love how you used the garden glove as a utensil holder…very clever.

  9. April 28, 2014 at 8:34 am

    What a wonderful setting. I loved that you used a garden glove as a silverware holder. That is so charming!

  10. April 28, 2014 at 8:43 am

    These dishes were just made for you and your potting shed Mary, they couldn’t be more perfect! The bee skep plates have me smiling, and of course all your special touches~love the glove and the garden markers~and I think the grand finale photo of the hanging watering can with the lush meadow out the window was simply the icing on your garden table! These photos are going to keep this stormy Monday bright~

    You’ve set my favorite potting shed so prettily, Mary. I love the garden gloves as utensil holders. The embossed plates are the best, as well as all the accesories to the pretty line. The view from the window is gorgeous. xo

  12. April 28, 2014 at 8:53 am

    Just beautiful! You really put the dishes “in their element”. What a pretty set full of interesting pieces. Thanks for displaying them so beautifully!

    I have a few pieces of Naturewood. I love what you’ve done and how you have used it. I know I say this all of the time, but it’s like coming to a magazine photo shoot when I’m here.

  14. April 28, 2014 at 9:26 am

    Beautiful. The bee skeeps get me on this pattern. I have several of these pieces from a long time ago.

    Love this Mary! I can’t find the embossed beehive plates in the Naturewood collection. They would be perfect for a “Mommy to Bee” shower I am throwing. Are they from Pfaltzgraff too? Thanks again for all your inspiration – it makes my day :-)

    Good morning Mary! I think the weather will hold out so we can start planting . Looking forward to seeing flowers and vegetables in my garden.
    Love the table wear!

  19. April 28, 2014 at 1:32 pm

    How fun and so perfect for the potting shed!
    Love the bee and bee skep embossed ceramic spoons and the embossed salad plates!

    Oh Mary, I just love your tablescape in the potting Shed. Everything is perfect. Looking out your window it looks like things are turning green for you.
    We are expecting in the 90’s starting tomorrow – to hot to soon, but better than the winter everyone else had.
    Have a wonderful week puttering around in your beautiful Potting Shed.

    Every time I view your blog and see yet another set of Pfaltzgraff dishes I tell myself that these are the ones. Well, today, these are REALLY the ones! The colors are perfect for me, the designs are me all over the place, and I like the shapes as well. If I could only get the mister to part with his much beloved “Village” set, I’d have plenty of room for more. ;-)

  22. April 28, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    Oh you are bringing back memories of tables set by my sister who has this dinnerware….She is a Master Gardener and has always loved garden themes and “bees”…such a classic pattern and you have displayed it so beautifully in the garden shed..I love the white bee skip designed plate with the pretty basket weave rim…Amazing presentation and beautiful ideas Mary!!!

    I love those dishes. They have caught my eye for years but I never saw them displayed so well! The bee skeps are lovely! Great idea with the garden gloves!

  24. April 29, 2014 at 8:22 am

    This is another of my favorite patterns, Mary. I love how you used it in the potting shed. Perfect!

    Oh my word, how fabulous is this. I love your shed and this tablesetting is sheer genius. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me.

  27. April 29, 2014 at 12:14 pm

    Mary, I love the dishes and your creative touches. Your view of the meadow is like something in a dream. Just gorgeous!

  28. April 29, 2014 at 2:21 pm

    Wow Mary, I love your garden inspired collection. So many pretty things in your vignette. I’m getting a new kitchen window in June with a ledge and you’ve inspired me to add a bird house or two when I do my window vignette. Visiting you from the Inspire Me Tuesday Party.

  29. April 29, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    Mary, this pattern is just perfect for your potting shed! As usual, I love everything you’ve done especially the gloves and I’m really fixated on those stemless wine glasses with the bee skep on them!!! Oh, my!

    Talk about beautiful eye candy!!! What a gorgeous pattern – how lucky for you to have such a perfect potting shed – my dream !
    Hopping over from Common Ground :)

    What a perfect setting for the Naturewood. Pfaltzgraff has some lovely designs! LOVE this!

  33. May 6, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    I love this post………so darling……….I have seen those dishes many times
    before and they always run away with my heart. This was just such a fun
    and creative post ……really enjoyed it, thanks for taking the time to do it.
    What a great potting shed too by the way, and loved the gardening gloves for the sliverware, I have used children’s knit gloves at Christmas the same way but the gardening gloves were certainly perfect with this dinnerware.
    Great post,
    Blessings, Nellie
