White and Black...
I couldn't make up my mind what to do for Tablescape Thursday with Susan of Between Naps On The Porch, so I closed my eyes and grabbed a plate...it was white with a black rim. So...black and white it is, this week. Worked out very nicely as I have a couple dozen white roses the grocery store was practically giving away Monday, plus a single pink one from my daughter! It isn't fun trying to keep a certain kitty away from them, though...a squirt bottle seems to work just fine...I don't know what it is, any fresh flowers and the kitty goes nuts, almost like it is catnip!
To enlarge the pictures, just click on them.
There is a bit of color in the soup bowl and salad plate, both have my beloved roosters!
I was surprised last week when Linda of A La Carte e-mailed me that I had won an unannounced giveaway for being the the only one commenting on the beautiful little white porcelain bird...which she promptly sent me...it is so much nicer looking than the picture is showing. Thanks again, Linda!
