On a Santa Fe Table

Before I get into the pretties that I saw on our last trip to Santa Fe, NM, I'd love to thank everyone for leaving so many nice comments on the last two posts. I would love to answer each and every one, but there just isn't enough time! I really enjoyed reading them, each and every one.

Have a sit, partake of your favorite beverage.. this is a picture heavy post. 

Let's start at Casa Nova, just a short walk away from the Plaza and our hotel.
530 South Guadalupe Street
Santa Fe, NM 87501

This and the following pieces are from their Potters Workshop and Potterseed lines. Oh my. They are exquisite indeed. They are made in South Africa. Delicate. Intricate. Gorgeous. Promise.

None of these treasures came home with me. But they ship and I have their phone number!!
These vessels come in small bowls, medium bowls and large bowls. 
Creamers and sugars.

And goblets. Aren't these exquisite?

So delicate. I cannot see the cowboy using these!!!
Oh but how perfect for a girlie lunch?

And then we stopped in at Cielo Tabletop.
316 South Guadalupe Street
Santa Fe, NM 87501
(505) 992-1960

I love this store. The owner and the dear lady who works there are delightful. 
Helpful, fun and so very knowledgeable.
This is the table that greeted us upon our entry. 

Rustic but oh so elegant. 
Each napkin was encased in a feather napkin ring.

This is fabulous flatware. Silver and onyx. It just glistened.

Pretty glasses and glassware bring energy to the table. 
Those candlesticks are so pretty.
William Yeoward?

Gorgeous pottery.

These napkin rings really look like jewelry. Many Kim Seyberts in the mix.

Sferra napkins. Oh, these are really some of my favorites. Did you see the tree with all 101 colors of cocktail napkins? There really isn't an ugly color in the bunch.

And then I saw these gorgeous napkins with the beautiful embroidery. 

So may different pieces of fun glassware. I love those with the black and gold beads in the stem. 

They also carry gorgeous pieces by Jan Barboglio. Also carried at Nieman Marcus.

Arte Italica

These are Japanese Lanterns in the vase. Thinking of doing this with cotton. Oh wait, I'll have to find a vase!

Gorgeous pieces with fitting price tags. But really, really gorgeous.

Hermes china. Outstanding pieces. 

Garnier Thiebault linens. Love the napkin ring. Did you notice the overturned flatware.
Very European looking. The green placemat keeps everything from appearing dull. Good idea to remember.
Kim Seybert napkin rings.

I certainly hope that you enjoyed visiting some of my favorite stores in Santa Fe with me. 
One day, we might just have to meet there!

I really will be joining the party over at Cuisine Kathleen's for Let's Dish and 
See you there!

Marlis, I'll book a flight tomorrow! Wow, what gorgeous dishes and other pieces gathered together! I don't even know where to begin. I doubled clicked to enlarge all your photos and the details on those Hermes dishes are magnificent. But I also love the pottery and the So. African pieces. Those goblets! Thank you so much for the tour! Linda

Dianne said...

Marlis, You are right, so many beautiful pieces of eye candy. Just amazing. I am particularly enamored with the table with the black place settings. Thinking of copying that one! Thanks for taking us along. Dianne

Laurie Ritchey said...

Marlis, what unique and gorgeous pieces! I can't meet you here. I don't have as much money as I'd want to spend. That pottery is all so pretty, and such gorgeous crystal too. I'm loving that ebony flatware. Oh, I'd spend way too much money shopping in these stores. Loved the virtual shopping trip. It didn't hurt my account at all! laurie

Dawn@ We Call It Junkin.com said...

Hi Marlis! I know what you mean, hard to have time to respond to everyone, and even hard to have time to leave a comment. Sometimes just read and move on! Wow you photographed some really lovely things here! I really like the red and white plates, red is my fave color. Take care - Dawn

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

WOW - just stunning pieces, I especially like all the pottery! I've never been to Santa Fe, so now you have certainly encouraged me to put this on my bucket list!!


Exquisite indeed Marlis! Amazing Eye Candy in this place in Santa Fe, wow! The pottery pieces you showed at the begining is my fav...but I really love it all! Thanks for sharing pretty lady.
Big hugs,

Sweetladyelaine said...

My hat is off to you for not coming home with anything that you showed us. I don't know how you did it, but I was green with envy! It is all so pretty!
I can't even pick out what I liked best!
Thanks for sharing your trip to Santa Fe. I have never been there. Maybe that's a good thing! lol
Blessings My Friend,

Lana Kim White Austin said...

I have always wanted to go to Santa Fe....thanks for sharing these pics from there...fabulous...the pottery reminds me of my beloved Italian versions....and that Cielo store.....I might have to sell a kidney to be able to afford to buy something there because it was GORGEOUS.....all that black on the focal table.....rustic and elegant.....I would LOVE to have that silver pitcher with what looked like a lizard for a handle....definitely have to sell a kidney to afford that one.
I'm so happy to be back to blogging and able to visit artistic and kind friends like you and everyone at BNOTP. Have a blessed day/love/hugs/blessings, L

Maria said...
