Another Thrifty Table
I will be, once again, joining Susan of Between Naps On The Porch this week for Tablescape Thursday. Thank you for hosting my favorite meme, Susan!

I have more blue and white dishes than any others...so here is another blue and white table.
The tablecloth and napkins remind me of spring; blue for the sky, yellow for the sun, green for the leaves and white for my untanned legs!
The lime mums and filler flowers are from my Mother's Day bouquet and the peonies from my garden. The vase is a little white pitcher.
I am using the Blue Tulip by Independence Ironstone dinner plate as the charger plate. While trying to find out anything I could on this pattern, I noted that Replacements, Ltd. has these listed at $21.99 each. I am astounded at the prices of some dishes found in the thrift stores for just pennies! And does anyone actually purchase dishes from Replacements, Ltd.?

On top of the charger is blue cameo-ware luncheon plate by Harker Pottery Co. Cameoware is made using a process called intaglio, which is cutting a design into a colored glaze.
Up close view of the cameoware.
Topping the luncheon plate is a white salad bowl, which may be some type of restaurant-ware as they are quite heavy. The back has Classic Oneida in green on it.
Profile...The sterling flatware is Oneida Afterglow 1956.
The stemware is a large crystal ice tea/lemonade and a milk glass wine stem.
Taken last night before I decided the Gerbera daisies were too far gone to look good. I just noticed I got a bonus "blue hour" picture, too!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, it is always appreciated when you leave a comment, too.
