A Little Bit of Cheer...
It is Tablescape Thursday with Susan of Between Naps On the Porch. Thanks for hosting, once again.
You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Tonight I am using my thrift shop dinnerware, Arcopal and the pattern is Provincial; it is white, looks like milk glass but is translucent, with red, green and blue flowers. I first found the dishes at a thrift store down in Fort Scott, Kansas and the other part at Goodwill in Ottawa, Kansas. I have 4-piece place settings, service for 4. I am on the look out for 4 more salad plates, 4 cups and 2 soup/cereal bowls, for 8 place settings. I am sure they will show up at one of my thrifting haunts, when I am least expecting to see them, just like the soup/cereal bowls and a few more dinner plates did recently. I looked them up at Replacements. Ltd. and was floored at their asking prices.
The dinner and salad plates have the same bright floral center design.
The cup and bowls have the same pattern design.
Closeup of the wine glass. I love the shade of blue they are.
The centerpiece is just an old pitcher with faux sunflowers and a few roosters from my collection.
My little AJ tried to get in the way....oops, I mean help out! He is a tailless feral that was born the day of our big straight line wind storm back in July...sweetest kitty I have ever owned. He now is one of 6 neutered/spayed kitties living in our home. I fed his mama/sister/brother and found them all good homes, too!
