Tablescape Thursday Sept. 30,2010

Welcome. Thanks for stopping in I was just planning a luncheon for my daughter. We are going to plan our holiday menu's. Maybe you can help. Let me get you a glass of tea.

Here's what I was thinking a soup and salad lunch . . .

I have some favorite cookbooks ready and a pad for notes ready. It is a little hard to see but the little glass jar holding the pens is from my daughters elephant collection. The jar actually has an elephant on it. I can't decide if I should use the pig or not . . . What do you think?

Here's the plate. It is just a simple solid blue dinner plate. My Cowboy used them years ago for a breakfast that he had to do for his work. Being the plate lover I am I saved them.
The place mat and the runner are Guatemalan fabric my Cowboy brought back from a trip.
And ya I know about the hideous scratch on the table. I cannot get it off. Go back to the top photo it is covered up! So I usually try to just cover it up. I would love to paint this table black but well . . . My Cowboy has no imagination!

I can't decide on the tea towel as a napkin or . . .

Or this look with the bandanna print napkin. Or heck why not both!

Now here's me trying to decide whether to just go with my small collection of fiesta. The bowls are the new ones from Khol's I have no idea about the pitcher but I bought it over 20 years ago at an antique shop. So maybe it's old. Really doesn't matter to me. I just love the blue.

Here's that little piggy trying to get onto the table again. I was trying to shoo it off that is why this shot is a little blurry! Oh the candle sticks I didn't tell you about them. I love these. They are from Pier One and again at least 20 years old. (I feel old) I love them because the inside is open and I can also use them as a vase. They look great with one flower.

One last shot of the fiesta and the print I have on the wall. I thought I would share it. Notice the blue steps at the very bottom. That blue is my inspiration to paint a piece of furniture I plan to be adding behind the table.

Oh you have to run? Thanks for dropping in. Have a great day!
BTW if your a regular visitor I bet your thinking you've seen this table before! Yep I re-posted but it wasn't origanlly posted here. I origanlly posted over at My Journey Back. Stop over there today to see my Thankful Thursday post.

A very creative thoughts.

I love the idea with the handky. I did that for sometime ago but it was the bandana type.

TY for sharing.

Have a happy TS Day.

Love, love, LOVE the plate! I could kick myself for giving a whole set away some years back! I don't even know where to look for them anymore:-( Very creative.

You have some wonderful choices. Use one now, and use the other on another day. Doesn't get much better than that! Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
