I got the "simply baked" striped liners at Haley's cottage.
The black and white greek key plate is from Z Gallerie.
Let me know if you try these!

I stopped by World Market yesterday as promised and couldn't find the cup holder either. So, I asked about it and the saleswomen told me that they had 2 and they were both on hold. She was kind enough to get one out of the back room for me so I could take a picture of the tag for all of you!
So there you have it! 
Good luck, and thank you for all the comments on our dining room.
I was blown away at all the sweet things you said about it, made my day!

Hey Melanie,

I have to wonder how many folks headed to WM yesterday looking for the drying rack....and, yes, I was one of them! Luckily, I did find one (they had 3 more which I probably should have purchased to make available to those wanting one). WM is a bit of a drive for me. The rack is not available online unfortunately. I asked if they would ship from the store, but they don't.

I explained that I was a 'blogger' and had seen this on a popular blog, and that I was sure WM would be inundated with requests. I assured her that bloggers were quite serious and they can be a store's best friend.

Oh well, I tried. Have a wonderful weekend!

I filled mine with vintage bottles...looks great!

I hope there is still one in Tukwila. I just sent someone there in search of the rack!! (I am very fortunate to have someone that will send me stuff that we can't get out here!)
