Did you see that I was featured at The Dedicated House for Make it Pretty Monday!
I was so excited and honored!
A big THANK YOU to Kathryn Ferguson!
Has your week flown by like mine? I just can't seem to catch up with everything! I feel like I have been going around and around. Mr. Sweetladyelaine has just finished painting my office this past weekend. I think the laundry room is the only room left. I will be glad when it's all finished!
Pictures will be coming this week!
My inspiration for this table came from my friend Cindy Jones Miller who lives in Belleville, IL.
She messaged me and asked me if I would like two sets of placemats and napkins.
Of course I couldn't say NO! I didn't even ask what they looked like or anything!
I just said YES! I am using one of the sets she mailed me!
Thank you Cindy!
They are so colorful! I love them!
Notice this is the first time I am not using a charger!
To tell you the truth I didn't even think to use chargers!
I used two different china patterns today.
I love the fact that you can mix them. It gives me lots of options for my tables.
The big bonus is that you can do it on a shoe string!
These dishes are made by United Utilities Corp. and the pattern is Sovereign.
These are my beloved, Blue Garland by Haviland. I have a place setting for 12, given to me by
Maureen who lives in Schenectady, NY. They were her mom's everyday china. Her mom bought them through a market, Loblaw's, near our house. It is no longer there, but remembered!
The bowls were purchased at a thrift store and made by Gibson.
You can't go wrong with buying anything white. It always looks wonderful!
I bought these glasses at a Thrift Store. I have no idea of the brand or pattern.
I love roses......
I love candles......Each of the four candle holders are crystal and different.
All bought at Goodwill, Salvation Army or stores like that.
I love china.......
I took so many pictures and just couldn't capture the right shot. You can tell because in some pictures my candles are lit and in some they are not! lol My camera is new and I know it will take practice to get my pictures the way I want them. Plus, I can't remember the program I use to crop and fix them. What do you use to crop your pictures? I bought a Cannon Power Shot. Great camera! I just need to get my act together.......not this week.........maybe next!
Thanks for stopping by..........
Please leave me a comment! I live for them.
I will be joining:
