Happiness is ....setting a table!

I am happy to be setting a tablescape today. This is just one place setting with all the pieces that I have for sale. I have had this in my shop for awhile and love it!

The pattern is by Metlox "Sculptured Daisey". Many of you have set a table with this pattern.
 It is made by the Metlox/Vernon Company in California. It was made from 1964-1983.
 My runner is a light green rug with rubber backing.

My centerpiece is a wire piece and I put the floral arrangement in it.

This might be a better picture of the centerpiece.

The sculptured daisey pattern is embossed on the rim. When you run your fingers over the rim you can feel the pattern. The pumpkins are glass.

My flatware is made by EKCO Eterna. It has brown rosewood handles.

Vegetable bowls, oval platters & gravy bowl. You can see the backs of the Canisters.

Before I forget, I want you to see the table that I am using.......a vintage 1970's, I think.

It is very narrow, 221/2 inches wide, but has the sides that make it wider.  Also the neat bench! A pretty cool table!


I am glad I had a chance to share with you. It was fun! I miss you......

Thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday and Coloradolady for hosting Vintage Thingie Thursday.

 I will try to visit as many tablescapes and vintage places as I can......Have fun!

Getting Ready for Halloween???????

This is just a quick post to get your creative juices flowing.......
I took a Gold 8x10 frame and painted it glossy black. I then added a black bow and Halloween bells. I hung it on the utility door in my shop. A great idea and not very expensive.

 What else can you put in the middle of the picture frame for Fall or Halloween? I think the options are endless!

This is another idea......Use buttons and spell out "BOO"....a cute bow and your are done!

We are so busy that we all need fast and easy ideas. I am addicted to PINTEREST! Follow me! I am loving all the ideas. Hope you have a great day!

Where in the WORLD is Sweetladyelaine?????

I have to apologize to all my followers. I have been busy.  I have been so busy that I haven't even set a table or bought any dishes! Now you know I am a dish alcoholic and that means I am truly sidetracked. I have so much to do that I have let life slip by......NO MORE!

My Consignment Shop is doing well! I just didn't realize how much work I was getting into when I decided to do this! I thought I would show you what the shop looks like now.....

I am quite full but always enjoy new items! If you look close you can find me.....yes, I am always here! Six days a week and one late night!
