Another week has passed and it is time to check out Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you for hosting, Susan. Summer is winding down according to the calendar, but certainly not by the weather here on the plains!

This week's inspiration were dinner plates I found at Savers on Sunday. We had to go pick up a piece of gym equipment for the town's recreation center...Savers happened to be on the way so I ran in to see if there was anything I couldn't live without!
I started layering with a woven placemat then chose a white charger (Certified Inernational)with a daisy pattern to place the Villeroy & Boch Romantica, circa 1986-1991 atop. It has an orange flower surrounding with little blue and white ones. The border is tiny blue polka dots and daisies. Blue and orange are a favorite color combination of mine. I try to use it often. I topped the dinner plate with a soup/salad bowl from Canonsburg Pottery in the American Tradional pattern.
The charger was purchased on sale at TJMaxx months ago. I think I may have paid a couple dollars each for them.
The V/B dinner plates were $1.99 each...Replacements. Ltd. is selling them for $39.99 each! How I wish there had been other pieces of this pretty china.
The rimmed soup/salad bowl.
The flatware is my old standby, Oneida Afterglow, circa 1956 and a solid orange napkin from World Market. The tarnished napkin rings were a thrift store bargain long ago.
The orange glassware is some I discovered at a little stripmall shop in Topeka a few months ago. The clear stems are Towle Leyland found quite some time ago at Goodwill.
The rim shot!
I used the same daisy arrangement from last week as it still looks pretty good. I just changed out the vase. This time I used an old tarnished silverplated ice bucket.
I will also join Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday.
Thank you for your visit today...if it weren't for friends like you I probably wouldn't be blogging! Please do come back again.
