Blue and Yellow Make Me Smile
This has been one of the saddest times of my life...my sweet little Mama died on January 10, 2011, at the age of 89. She will be deeply missed by the many people whose lives she has touched. I am so thankful I was able to spend her last Christmas with her.
I will be joining Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Thank you, Susan, for hosting this weekly meme.

The inspiration for my table today came from the candlesticks and yellow stemware I found at Savers a few weeks ago.
I started with yellow and blue placemats I have had for several years. The flatware is Rogers Gracious 1939, the pattern I grew up with.
I have started with a plain yellow dinner plate as a charger topped it with blue and white Stratwood Collection Shakespeare Country dinner plate, made in the U.S.A. dinnerware.
Next is a Bordallo Pinheiro salad plate. I can't find the pattern for the salad plate, maybe it is one of their older pieces. If anyone knows what the pattern is, please let me know.
The dessert plate and soup bowl match the dinner plate. Each piece has a different scene.
The yellow beverage glass is from Savers Thrift Store and the little wine stem is Indiana King's Crown/Thumbprint pattern. The blue and yellow Marat napkins, made in France, were found several months ago at Savers.
The layers are always interesting.
The centerpiece is a vintage blue rooster sitting on a pale yellow pedestal plate flanked by the inspirational candlesticks.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Hope to see you here next week!
