Anthropologie Sardina


The inspiration for this table came from another blogger several weeks ago...Jenna of The Painted Apron did a table with the Anthtroplogie fish plates. I liked them so much, I bought the salad plates. They have great colors to work with. I decided to go with red and pink this time. There really is red in with the orange, not sure why it all looks orange.




I used red and white fishing bobbers as the napkin rings.


Did anyone notice the beautiful new drapery? I thank my sister, Judy, for making them for me! I need to do the chair seats in the same fabric one of these days. I found the fabric at Texas Susannie's...thanks to Ellen at Scribbler Unfocused.



This hand carved wood fisherman was made in Italy...it belonged to my husband's late father. We also have a hunter and golfer. They usually reside on a cabinet in the hallway.



Thank you for taking the time to visit today...hope you will come back next time.

I will join Foodie Friday and Everything Else/Rattlebridge Farm.

Good Afternoon Marigene,
You have been missed, so nice to see your fabulous table setting!
Oh goodness, look at these plates and the fishing bobbers for napkin rings-love to pieces!
Your fisherman is darling and I am very partial to this entire theme as my Dad loved to fish.
In fact he won many a fishing tournament for catching the largest trout-in my beloved Idaho!
Anthropologie anything wins me over, but these plates are spectacular.
Enjoy your reunion and thank you for stopping by and visit me. Yes moving from Idaho to Texas was very challenging in the beginning-love it now!

I love the little fisherman and bobbers as napkin rings. Too cute! Thanks for the mention -- glad to be of help. Those plates are so cute, and if I had any room to store them, I would get some. I love the bright colors.

I like those plates too. I took photos of them when I first saw them at Anthro, but I didn't buy any. There is no space in the cupboards. Ha! Your fishing details are a cut touch.
