Laura Ashley Berry Bramble

Like everyone else, I am yearning for spring, something green! Looking through my linens I found this Laura Ashley Berry Bramble tablecloth. I paired it with two solid colored napkins; lavender linen and a white with a pretty crocheted edging. The napkins are held with green glass/metal napkin rings.

The plate stack is comprised of all Bordello Pinheiro cabbage leaf in green, white, lavender and purple.

The glassware is a ribbed amethyst Ivima water glass and a green etched wine stem.

I have used my favorite Oneida Louisiana flatware, again.

The centerpiece is a purplish coffee pot filled with purple tulips that are barely opening. I put a penny in the water to see if it would keep the stems from doesn't work...their little heads are nodding every which way! The mismatch wood candlesticks are some I painted a deep, bright purple.

The best buy on the table are the green etched crystal wine stems...they were about $2.00 for all 4. Sure wish I could find the maker/pattern.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today...hope you will return next time.

Winter Blues...

Who doesn't have the winter blues...maybe someone that is in far warmer and sunnier clime than I. The poor people on the east coast...they sure have had their share of snow and cold this year, maybe I shouldn't complain of winter blues.  I chose to do another very simple tablescape, no frills, no flowers and no fuss!
This week I decided something blue was appropriate...winter seems never ending this year and we haven't had very much snow, just lots of grey days. Of course, today turns out to be sunny!

The linens are a white damask tablecloth (that I used last week) and blue/white Summer Stock napkins that I have had for almost 10 years.

The plate layer starts with a white Mesa International charger, large navy Max Studio dinner plate being used as a second charger, a blue/white striped Pier One Marea dinner plate, a Home salad plate in navy and topped with a white American Atelier Athena soup bowl.

The flatware is vintage Oxford Hall Fashion Wear in navy.

The glassware is Artland Iris in cobalt.

For the centerpiece I have chosen a blue shaded was someone with the initial K's ceramic project back on 4/13/1981...she did a great job of shading the blue from dark to light on both the underplate as well as tureen.


Thank you for taking a few minutes from your busy life to stop and read my little blog...hope you will return next time.

A Pink Confection Or Pink Concoction!

I had a hard time getting psyched to do a Valentine table. I waffled back and forth between red/white, pink/white and red/ you can see, pink/white won out.

There will be very little dialogue with this post...what is there to's PINK! Confection or concoction?

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you will return next time. An extra thanks to all who leave a comment!
