I will be joining the other tablescapers at Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday, with a very simple table. Thank you, Susan, for so graciously hosting this fun event each week.

No, no, no it isn't a Halloween table!
I found these interesting looking soup/cereal bowls, 74¢ each, a couple weeks ago, thinking they may go with some orange plates I bought a few years ago, but no such luck. I Googled to see if I could find out the pattern. On Replacements, Ltd I found a description, but no photo. I kept Googling and finally found several pages that were in German and discovered the pattern is the one described on Replacement, Ltd., which is, Pasiega, made by Waechtersbach. I couldn't find information on when they were made, but it would be fairly recently as the bottom says they are dishwasher safe! I was hoping to find out what the symbols on the rim of the bowl were and the year(s) the pattern were produced.
I have very few orange dishes, other than my Orange Rooster, a couple Waechsterbach orange peel plates and two, well used, Fire King peach luster Laurel, (1952-1963) salad plates. The dinner plate is a plain black Home Trends, which I believe is sold at WalMart.
I found these two very orange wine stems on e-Bay a few weeks ago and thought they would look great with the rooster plates, so had to get them.
Anyone out there ever seen these symbols or know what they represent?
I ran out and grabbed a handful of daffodils, hoping the centers were "orange" enough to not clash with the dishes. I don't have either an orange or black vase, the only thing I could find with any orange was this whimsical pitcher.
Thanks for stopping by, it is really appreciated! Make sure to go over to Susan's porch so you see what everyone has done for a table.
