Another Thursday is upon us...that means Tablescape Thursday with our gracious hostess, Susan, of Between Naps on the Porch. Please stop by so you can drool over the other guests tablescapes, too.
I wanted a really simple tablesetting to show off the soup tureen I found last Friday in a little shop a few towns north of us. I walked into the shop and the first thing I noticed was this bright yellow soup tureen...I was the only one in there at the time so I knew I wouldn't be fighting anyone off! I wandered around a little bit before going over to the hutch where it was displayed. I picked it up, checking to see if there were any chips or cracks...there is a small chip out of the ladle, none on the tureen itself. When I turned it over I noticed it had Peg '78 inscribed on the bottom...wow, my guess is this was someone's ceramic class project. For being over 30 years old it was in excellent shape. I negotiated the $11.75 price down to $9. This tureen goes perfect with my Orange Rooster dishes, too!
It would have been fun to do a red/yellow table, but I have done red the past two weeks, so it had to be blue/yellow/white.
I started with a plain yellow placemat, added a blue charger then added a dinner plate, salad plate (both the same pattern) and soup bowl.
