It's A Plaid, Plaid World...
I will be joining the Tablescape Thursday party at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you, Susan, for hosting this favorite of mine! Be sure to follow the link so you won't miss out on any of the special tables everyone has set this week.

I am not sure which was the inspiration, the plates or the tablecloth, for this week's tablescape.
The plaid tablecloth was a recent find at Savers. The napkins were also a Savers purchase a while back.
The plates are stoneware by Hearthside, the pattern is Mayblossom. The plates are pretty large 10¾-inches. They are tan, dark brown and white flowers. These were found on one of my trips to Sally's (Salvation Army).
The salad plate is Oneida Classic found a couple months ago at Savers.
I have had the green stemware for at least 15 years, probably closer to 20. I bought it at World Market in Phoenix.
The only thing blossoming really good, other than correopsis, is lavender right now, so I grabbed a handful, a few small hosta leaves and a couple Swedish ivy plants that haven't made it into the hanging basket on the back porch, yet. I really like the bright purple with the green/brown/white of the table.
The candle holders also came from the thrift stores...like almost everything else!
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, it is always appreciated when you leave a comment so that I know you have been here!
