Vera Bradley Goes Blue
I am back from my vacation in the beautiful Green Mountain State. I missed most of the oppressive Kansas heat, thank you Lord...the weather in Vermont was beautiful, even the few rain showers we had. I had the opportunity to spend lots of enjoyable time with family and friends.
I can't believe it is time once again for Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Please make sure you take this opportunity to view all the lovely tables being offered up this week. Thank you for hosting, Susan.

Blue and white is a combination I never tire of using or seeing!
The tablecloth is from Savers, as are the white napkins. The flatware is Oneida Afterglow, circa 1956.
The white candlesticks were found long ago at Goodwill.
I have had two of the Vera Bradley 13" charger plates for ages. I found them at TJMaxx for a couple dollars apiece. I couldn't find another two until I checked on eBay. The seller was asking $29.99, which was a little more than I was willing to pay...an offer of $17.50 each was made...the seller accepted!
The dinner plate is by Totally Today, plain white with a raised design around the rim. These were found at Goodwill for 49¢ each. Most of the Goodwill stores in the area charge 49¢ for plates and most stemware.
The salad plates are Bordallo Pinheiro. I also found these on eBay for about a dollar each. I have tried to find the name of the pattern but so far have come up empty handed...so if anyone reading this knows the pattern, please let me know.
The underplate for the cobalt blue sherbet is stamped Federalist Ironstone which made dishes for Sears. The pattern is Mayhill, circa 1965.
The cobalt sherbets are also an eBay find. The maker and pattern are unknown.
The iced tea/lemonade/water glass is Indiana Whitehall and the clear wine stem is Noritake Provincial. These were found at either Goodwill or Savers.
The handled bowl I am using for a vase was found at Savers a few months ago. It is one of my favorite finds. The markings on the bottom are mostly Chinese. The front panel has what looks like a pair of storks or an ibis on it...the back panel is indistinguishable. The daisies are from the local florist.
Blue, white, blue white, blue!
