Tablescape Tuesdays with Susan

Hi! Today is Tablescape Tuesday that is hosted by my friend, Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.
If you like dishes and pretty tables come be a part of the fun each Tuesday! Just go over and let Susan know you want to join the dish fair!!



I would like to share with you my table which is set with much Pinkness! I guess I could have used this for Pink Saturday but no, I wanted to save it for you today!
My dishes are an old pattern called Franciscan Desert Rose. I just love these dishes. I have some pieces that are old and others that are newer.
I found this table cloth that is just perfect with the pattern, don't you think so?

The shape of the coffee cup is so girly. Again I just love these dishes! Can you love dishes? I can! I also have some pink glasses with swirls. Swirls are girly, too!

Notice the different hue in the brightness of these two plates? The lighter color is older and the darker is the newer plate.

Aren't these little salt and peppers the cutest little things! Little rosebuds!
You know I'm always out and about looking for little treasures! One day I found these sweet little rosebud napkin rings! Again, a match made in dish heaven!

Looking down at my little centerpiece.

Pink roses in one of my crystal vases! Well, they are fake pink roses. I've said it before and I'll say it again, "I love my fake flowers and my fake flowers love me!" Oh, and here are the little 'what nots' that belonged to my Grandmother!
Flowers in all of their fake gloriousness!

Candlelight makes everything look so much more romantic!
See? Romance is beginning to bloom!

Candlelight magic!
Romance is here and alas! where is my Mr. Precious?!
Hope you've enjoyed yourself Tablescaping with me today!
Dear Ones, just to let you know if I do not post in the next few days, you'll know we had to evacuate to get away from hurricane Ike! Please be in prayer for all of us in the path of this storm. My prayer is that my God will keep us all safe from harm's way! Love you all!

Attention! Attention!! Will wonders ever cease? I don't think so ~ especially when it come to bathroom magic! I am told we have another lovely one snapping away in some bathroom across America! Okay, show me the beautiful one and I will get down to my bathroom business...

Oh, this is a great closeup and I can see almost clearly this beautiful one's face!
Look at her peaches and creamyness of complexion, sparkling eyes filled with starlight, the pearliness of whites, a smile to melt the hardest heart. Dear Easily Amuzed Ones, I see no arms! But I know this lovely has arms because dainty creamy fingers are always attached to arms and dainty creamy fingers are always grasping a CAMERA!! Woo Hoo! We have a true bathroom Diva!!
Now do I recognize this gorgeous one? Why yes! This is non other than our own Krystyna at http://longe-vity.blogspot.com/ Oh how special this beautiful one is! Her blog is all about living healthy and with healthy comes beautiful!! I just love beautifulness, don't you, Gorgeous Ones?
Okay, does this nail polish look okay with my gorgeous blues? Oh, alright...ahem..Krystyna you are about to become a member of the most elitest of organizations in the world! I bestow upon you the title of Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva and you will be one now and for ever and ever and until the twelfth of never!
Oh, Bathroom Ones! I'm so very proud of you! Bathrooms, mirrors, cameras and beautiful faces just makes my little heart sing!! Snap on, snap on and on!!
I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
Do You Believe in Magic
Do you believe in magic in a young girl's heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it's magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I'll tell you about the magic, and it'll free your soul
But it's like trying to tell a stranger 'bout rock and roll
If you believe in magic don't bother to choose
If it's jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen it'll start with a smile
It won't wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping and you can't seem to find
How you got there, so just blow your mind
If you believe in magic, come along with me
We'll dance until morning 'til there's just you and me
And maybe, if the music is right
I'll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we'll go dancing, baby, then you'll see
How the magic's in the music and the music's in me
Yeah, do you believe in magic
Yeah, believe in the magic of a young girl's soul
Believe in the magic of rock and roll
Believe in the magic that can set you free
Oh, talking 'bout magic
Do you believe like I believe
Do you believe in magic
Do you believe like I believe
Do you believe, believer
Do you believe like I believe
Do you believe in magic
