A Quiet Afternoon

I thought about my tablescape yesterday and decided to use my turquoise placemats. I'm not sure HOW I ended up with this tablescape!

But I did have fun and that's all the mattered to me.
My centerpiece are three brass candlesticks I got at GW in Buffalo, NY. Have you ever bought something and just loved it.
                                           I love these!

A very simple table for two.

The glass blue chargers were bought at "Something Special", a store where the proceeds go to a womens crisis center in Houston. The dishes (United Utilities Corp,"Sovereign") are from GW in Buffalo, NY.

A side view. The glass bowls I have had for years. The gold placemats were a gift from my friend, Shelly.

I like to use wine glasses for beverages. I don't care what you drink out of them, they always look elegant!
The pink napkin is a bandana. They were on sale in Hobby Lobby.

A matching bowl.

Coffee or tea??????

A close up of the pattern.

The sugar and creamer.

And last but not least the bluebird of happiness! It was given to me by my daughter, Jennifer.

I hope you had fun looking at all my stuff.  

I am joining  Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

  3. What a lovely table, those blue dishes are so lovely. Thanks for your prayers, we can always use extra. xo,

  4. Yup...that's a far cry from the turquoise placemats alright! :-) It's a beautiful setting! I can see why you like the candlesticks so much. They look like something from the days of Paul Revere. Very nice!!! The chargers are fabulous with the dishes!!!!!! What a great combination!

  5. What a beautiful setting for two, the china is gorgeous, all your treasures are so dainty and I'd love to eat at this table with you. Happy TT at Susan's. See you soon. Hugs, FABBY

  6. I am so happy dh found a job, I remember the last time! And the move.
    I agree, my diet soda looks better in a pretty glass!
    Lovely table, Elaine, I think I have those blue chargers too. I have to dig them out!
    Have a great weekend.

  7. Beautiful! Picture of a calm afternoon. Love your table.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  8. Want to know something good about your brass candlesticks? I read that brass is the new "big trend" metal accent for the coming year. Yours really are neat. Your tablescape came together for a beautiful design. Thank you for sharing. Cherry Kay

  9. Looks so peaceful and relaxing! I like that so much of what you used was thrifted (from places that help the less fortunate among us). Ever bought something and loved it? Oh yes, I love TOO many things! But it's such fun to shop for estate and thrifted treasures!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
