I want to join a few blogs on Tuesday and then of course Tablescape Thursday...but I never have enough time!
You must not sleep...or do anything but blog!!!!!
Oh My.....I am exhausted!
I started really early today in setting my table. I changed it a few times. I have good ideas, but never the stuff to make it come together. I try to focus on details but I guess I don't like when a table is overcrowded.
I always use my tablescapes for dinner.....whether its just the two of us or for company! This is my living room.....
I hated putting a TV in my living room but I liked having my morning coffee overlooking the pool. I had an end table between the two chairs and moved it to the family room. I love having small tables all over the house to enjoy a cup of tea or a bite to eat.
In Buffalo, I had the two chairs in my family room with a oak round table between them. I loved that! It overlooked the backyard and pond. Now the round table is in the kitchen.....
It is a very simple table....... the tablecloth was my inspiration. Or should I say the piece of cloth. I bought it at Goodwill with the intentions of covering a bench with the material. I realized I wanted an all over print and a different color on the bench. So I now will use it as a tablecloth! I used a different centerpiece in the picture below.
A silver tray is used as a charger with a dinner plate from Bella Lux, "Alexandra Gold". I added the Alexandra Gold bowl.....
The green dessert plate is vintage. Our neighbor gave them to my mom and she gave them to me. I use them at Christmas. I have 12.
The teacups match the dessert plate. I do love the color!
The green bowl is a gift from my Aunt Emily, years ago. I have always loved green & pink glass. I just never had enough money to collect it. Now, I'm glad I didn't because I love mixing and matching dishes.....Thanks to Tablescaping.
If I told you I am eating Blue Bell ice cream would you believe me??? Yup, I am.... Southern Blackberry Cobbler. It just sounded so good to me and since I have to stop and think while writing this I decided to indulge myself. lol
Well, I hope you are up to something good this week....love that you stopped by. Please stop and chat again. I love hearing from you. It gets lonely in Texas with no friends!
