Tablescape Thursday with Fish Jugs :)


Hello, Dear Ones and welcome again to Tablescape Thursday hosted by our Dear Diva of Dishing, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Make sure you visit her to see other Dishaholics today!
We're really proud of our disease! :)

Yesterday I showed you my new blue Fish Jugs! Well, they wanted to be take part in my tablescape today and I did allow them to do so! My blue Fish Jugs have officially been introduced to Blogland and Tablescaping! Say hello~

(oh, my goodness, please don't look over there on The Little Richard - you'll see more of my dishes that I didn't even put away! Oh, the shame of it all!)

I have used an aqua tablecloth and napkins. Oh, Dear Ones, I ironed the snot out of this tablecloth and it still continued to be wrinkled! Just wanted you to know that! Confession is good for the soul!


I have a little fishy theme going on today - you know Fish Jugs and all and I am using six of my little seahorse dishes I found at Marshalls! Don't we love Marshalls! Hallelujah, sing praises to Marshalls my little darling Fish Jugs! If you'll listen real closely you can hear them humming...humming is all they can do at the moment because they have objects in their little fish mouths!


There I go, getting off track. I wanted to tell you on the back of my little seahorse dishes it says! DEI Dennis East. Aren't they precious? I have two different ones...these...


...and then these. The rim is so soft and aquay looking.


You know the breakdown...must show all the layers of dishes. My cream dinner plate is from my set of Thomson Pottery I found at Big Lots! (for shame, that's some of the other pieces sitting on The Little Richard. Didn't even notice them until I had uploaded all my pictures!).


Oh, I love my new chargers! Marshalls! Are you standing up and clapping your tiny hands now for Marshalls! Well, do it Dear Ones. Hip hip hooray! Marshalls! Marshalls! You're so affordable we bring home parcels! Well, that was kinda like a cheer, wasn't it! :) You know I didn't have any chargers until I started blogging and saw everyones chargers. If you know me I had to go and be a Copy!


I know, I know, I would certainly fail photography class with this blurry picture, but I got so excited about my chargers I must have wriggled when I took this one. I rolled up my napkins and slid them into these blue and green beaded napkin holders - very seaish looking, don't you think? Do they remind you of fish eggs!? That's what my new Blue Fish Jugs told me. Blue and green fish eggs!
Then I'm using my very olden 1957 silverware (it's silver plate) by Rogers and Bros. and the pattern is called "Exquisite". I have some of these little tiny forks, I'm supposing they are for horderves but not sure. I like them, so they're out on the table! Maybe I could use them to poke through a nicely grilled spiced up fish filet!


I'm using clear stemware and you can peak through and see other things on the table.


Now, here I go about Marshalls again, but just look at this precious little fishy plate I bought there! Shoot, I bought two sets of these! I thought these little plates would be perfect for a nice crusty roll. I'm also using little butter knives in the same pattern as my tiny forks. There are no markings on these, but you can tell they're very olden!


On to the spice of life - salt and pepper. The true color is a light aqua although they almost look white here. Again very fishy...:)


Don't you just love centerpieces!? Oh, I have so much fun playing and setting up my centerpieces! Here are my little Fish Jugs! Lovely lovely little Fish Jugs! See my new blue ones? They are all being very busy on my table. One pair is holding round candles and the other two pairs are holding in their tiny fish lips - ferns from the backyard.


Now I'll bet you thought they were hurling ferns, didn't you? No no Nannette! They're daintily holding ferns in their tiny fish lips just for this tablescape. They were so honored to do so!


A tiny little shell candle holder sitting on a bed of ferns! How very fishy!


Now on to more fun things! Beach balls! Well, these are ceramic and guess where I found them? Can you guess? Yep, Marshalls. Are you singing the praises of Marshalls yet? :)






Well, Dear Ones, this is my entry into our Tablescape Thursday! Please go and visit our Dear Susan to see many a Dishaholic's table today!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

She Works Hard For The Money

She works hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.

She works hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.

Onetta there, in the corner stands,
And she wonders where she is.
And it's strange to her,
Some people seem to have everything.

Nine A.M. on the hour hand,
And she's waitin' for the bell.
And she's looking real pretty,
Just waitin' for her clientele.

She works hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.

She works hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.

Twenty-eight years have come and gone,
And she's seen a lot of tears.
Of the ones who come in,
They really seem to need her there.

It's a sacrifice working day to day,
For little money, just tips for pay.
But it's worth it all to hear them say,
That they care.

She works hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.

Already knows, she's seen her bad times.
Already knows, these are the good times.
She'll never sell out, she never will,
Not for a dollar bill.

She works hard...

She works hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.

Hard for the money,
So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money,
So, you better treat her right.
Alright.
