You'll smile at supper served on Mary Alice Hadley country dinnerware. No two pieces are exactly alike among 17 patterns. Cows, chickens, barns, sailboats, snowmen and such cheer stoneware pottery mugs, pitchers, platters and fun pieces. Each piece is hand painted, glazed and fired.

House of Two Sisters, owned by siblings Debra Vallejo and Diane Reynolds, carries a selection of M.A. Hadley exclusive to the Tampa area. On the other side of the gift shop, the ladies serve tea and scones three times a day, Tuesday through Sunday. Address: 204 S Howard Ave. Call 258-8220 for hours.
