Today is another really dark day, dark enough I had to turn the chandelier on to get a halfway decent picture. If we don't get some sunshine pretty soon I will be screaming!
I started with a black floral tablecloth and black woven chargers. The tablecloth is from Savers, I think. The chargers were from a barn sale...I think someone sprayed painted them black as you can see the natural browns through in places. I paid $3.00 for six of them, so I can't complain too loudly, can I? I probably should have chosen something a little lighter in color due to the dark day, but really wanted to use this one.
The Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf plates were a gift from my friend, Johanna, in Phoenix. They belonged to her late mother, but she wasn't married to them...she sent them to me as she knew they would be used with love. There is service for 8...large dinner plates 11¾" and luncheon plates 9¼". She also said there are 8 mugs, a tureen and a couple other pieces, but she ran out of bubblewrap...they will come at a later date. Thank you so very much JoJo...I am so fortunate to have the best friends in the world!
The white dinner plate is one you have seen numerous times, Wedgwood Hedge Rose. They were found at Goodwill.
The green handled Madeline flatware is from World Market.
I have used the green Ivima 1895 goblets again this week paired with green stemmed Cris d'Arques/Luminarc wine glass.
I chose black napkins and green napkin rings.
The centerpiece is a tall thin white pitcher with 4 sunflowers...one of my kitties is bound and determined to eat the sunflowers...there are certain flowers that she goes to great lengths to devour.
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit today. I also want to thank all of my followers and everyone that leaves a comment...you have no idea what that means to a blogger!
I will be joining a few link parties and hope you follow me, too!
