Beachy Fun........

Since I missed the last Let's Dish "white dish"event, I was not going to miss this one!

My inspiration are the napkins I bought just a few weeks ago.......I absolutely love them! I had looked at them several times at Old Time Pottery but I had no intentions of buying them. I just lusted! I finally decided to buy them and I'm glad I did! How many times I have looked at something, only to go back to buy it and it would be gone! I hate when that happens!

Most of the napkins I have seen are brown, beige or blue. I have been looking for something different. I think they are the  perfect punch of color, I had imagined.
A side view of my dishes............
I used a silver tray as a charger.
My white "Living Quarters" dish as a dinner dish,
a coral dish called "Swirl" for salad and a silver clam dish for dessert.

                                        I had two silver clam dishes that I used for tea bags when I served tea........
                                                       Today, I found two more at Goodwill.
                                                           I made the little seashell candy.
                              I was suppose to make them with swirls with two colors but ran out of time.
                                               Do you do that often when setting your tables?

                                             Time just seems to get away from me lately!
                                                            I have so much going on.........

                          My centerpiece is sea glass I borrowed from my friend, Judy and
                                  shells I have collected over time during our vacations.
                                                   The starfish I bought at JoAnn's.

                                  Flowers, flowers and flowers.............

Well I hope you liked my beachy table! Please leave a comment, you know we thrive on your comments!
Today I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish

and Tablescape Thursday with Susan at BNOTP

Here is a look at the whole table......
I bought the small square tablecloth at "Savers" a few days ago for $4.99. I think it is a bed throw but I am using it as a tablecloth!
For those of you that shop at Savers, I think it is more expensive than Goodwill. Not sure if it is like that in your area. Several shoppers have mentioned it while shopping.

Have a great week!

Blessings My Friend,

"Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ". (Galatians 6:2)

No matter how mature or immature we are as believers, we are challenged to grow and change. We can all be more loving, be more at peace, have greater joy, walk in faithfulness, have greater patience, show more kindness, reflect more goodness and manifest more self-control. I pray that you grow in these areas with God's help!
