Another Thrifted Table...
It is time for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you, Susan, for hosting my favorite meme.

I found these dishes at the local ARC Thrift Store awhile back. The china is not old. The stamp on the back says Home Beautiful MA103 Cotillion Fine China; they were made in China. I couldn't find them on the internet, so I know nothing about them. They are white with tiny peach flowers/pale green leaves in a black border with gold around the rim. The set included a dinner, bread/butter plate, soup/salad bowl and saucers, but no cups. I had to scrounge around for 4 white cups!
I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted to use rudbeckias with a few white cone flowers or white hydrangeas for the centerpiece. I took photos with each one before the table was completely set. I do like the little bit of color the rudbeckias add but think I prefer the white; they makes for a more monochromatic table. Which do you like think looks the best?

This little Red Cliff cream pitcher is one of my favorite finds at Savers. The price was 49¢, but when I got home I discovered I was never charged for it!
I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures this week. This has been the hardest, of any of the tables I have done, to photograph. I don't know if it was me, the camera or that there was so much white. I have a friend that is a professional photographer, so I will ask him if I have the camera set right or if I just need lots more practice.
As I look at the table, everything with the exception of the silverware is from a thrift store...and the hydrangeas, they are from my back yard...finally, this year they did really well and I have lots of blossoms for a small bush.
Thank you, everyone, especially my followers, so much for taking the time to look at my blog each week. I try to visit and comment on each entry on Tablescape Thursday. I feel that if you have taken the time to do a table, you deserve a comment, however short it may be. I hope to see you here next week.
