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.

  3. I just spent a fortune at Marshall's yesterday! They have the best stuff! And the cutest beachy/fishy stuff right now!

    All the best,

  4. Shelia,

    You have quite an aquatic thing going on here and I LOVE it!! And I also sing the praises of Marshalls. They are really dragging out all of the outdoor things!

    I love your fish jugs!! Do they gurgle when you pour?? I think these are part of an old English tradition and even now, the fish jug holding water on the table. But yours are so creatively holding ferns and juggling ball candles!!!! Great idea!!!

    And I LOVE your starfish dishes, but Shelia, to be honest with you, I think they are sea horses. I know I live in the Great Plains, but I do know a sea horse when I see one. But maybe it is seahorse...oh well. They are so pretty, all of the aqua blue!

    I also like your silver. Rogers Bros. is very, very nice. I have a few pieces, not a whole set.

    Well, you have a lovely evening. I just love your table!! :-)

    xoxo

  5. Okay, Shelady... I'm officially IN LOVE with those seahorse dishes. Seahorses are some of my favorite critters, and those are too cute! I love the color on the plates, too, and the tablecloth you ironed the snot out of... why do they have no iron tablecloths that wrinkle??? Ever figure that out???

    That table is GREAT. Love, love, LOVE it!

    I want to play with y'all one week. I just wish you were nearer so we could join forces and be the Shelady Team! I've got some sea critters (dishes) of my own I could contribute, and we could have a great big seafest!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  6. Oh wow, Shelia, this is just stunning. I LOVE all of your fish jugs and dishes, they are all just stunning. You have created the most beautiful table and your pics are just beautiful. They look like they should be in a magazine. Gorgeous. I love all the beautiful detail you included in the table. Just lovely. Question, how did you delete your blog dress and also how did you make the Cloche Party button on the side go to my blog when you click on it. I am so new to this blog thing. I have no idea how to do all this great stuff. Thanks for the gorgeous tablescape and thanks for the help. Hugs, Marty

  8. Beautious...but aren't those seahorses??? as opposed to starfish? I'm just askin'! Not that I am a sea officialnato!
    I have some yummy shrimp in the freezer right now waiting to be grilled. They would fit right in on your tablescape!!

  9. Hi Sheila! I love your tablescape! I've got to tell you a story! 25 yrs. ago my best friend was getting married and one of the wedding gifts from a family friend was a majolica fish pitcher! We both thought it was the ugliest thing we'd ever seen!!! The only reason she kept it was because it was from family! Well, thank God our taste has matured! She still has it and it's gorgeous! I'll have to take a pic sometime and share with ya! God Bless! Lauralu :)

  10. Shelia, I found this on the website that MIGHT have had your background. They said that they had exceeded THEIR bandwith and that they were correcting the problem, that you should be good to go soon if your background suddenly disappeared.

    I picked out a polka dot one from there because I'm kind of a spotty type of girl AND the white was bothering my eyes. I'll let you know if I get any messages.

    Love you...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  11. Shelia!
    When and where did you get allll those fish jugs?? Last I knew you had only 2 of them...white ones. I love them. Both pairs are sooo pretty. You have great fish theme going on. Love the dishes and the crabs and everything...never mind your Richard with the dishes..we would never have even noticed.
    Hope you are having a nice day

    I have a giveaway too....

  13. Hi Shelia!!

    What a cute tablescape! It makes me want to have lobster tails for some reason ;)

    You know that house a few posts back just broke my heart! If I had the money I would fix it up too. So sad!

    I've missed you!!

  14. Hi Sheila, we were out of service on our computers until we came home from playing in Yellowstone all day. I have missed some of your posts and I hate that. Finding time to visit my friends is much harder than posting a few pictures.

    I adore your new blue fish and your whole collection too. I too love Marshall's. Sadly, where we live I don't have one. Boo Hoo! Anyway your tablescape is wonderful and very seaworthy. I love your sense of humor and the fun and smiles I have when visiting your posts. You are the very best blogger girl. Also, the best at doing a tablescape.

    Love and hugs...Jeanne

  15. You did such a great job on your tablescape. I love how you followed through on the fish theme. Very nice. I do think the little forks are seafood forks. I have two and get them out when we have crab legs. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sheila my dear,
    You so crack me up! Your story is always as good as your table and your table is fabulous! So much detail, so much creativity! I love the soft blues and whites and Marshalls is surely going to love you! They should send you some freeby dishes for all the great plugs! This is one super creative table. Hugs, Cindy

    ReplyDelete
  17. So glad you found some food for those hungry fishies! Just think of the dishes on The Little Richard as your 'Dessert Buffet'. Three cheers for Marshalls - I even have to drive 120 miles round trip to check them out, which I do periodically! Sally

    ReplyDelete
  18. HOW creative you ARE!! Would you look at all that beauty and wonder and...and...well...I am totally undone! What an imagination you have my sweet friend! I keep seeing something new...then I go back again for fear I may have missed a tidbit. I love the ferns...which are one of my favorite plants of all time! I have them everywhere.
    Your tablescapes is just plain amazing!

  19. Shelia, you're a total doll for all the help. I will give it a try. You did make it sound simple. I so appreciate the help. Hugs, Marty

  20. Hello again, Mrs. Precious... yes, I did change clothes and hat again. I'm playing. Did you see a little boat and some bigger polka dots??? I tried to sign on from Google, and they had the OLD dress. Then when I logged on, it's the NEW one. LOL! Rather like the Twilight Zone or Musical Chairs, not sure which.

    I don't quite know what to think. But, it makes for some interesting talk. "Why it's just scandalous how many pairs of shoes that woman has!" ;-)

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  21. I love the "sea and fish" theme, sugar! Cute.

  22. I love the beach balls. Gosh I better put my car on auto pilot to Marshall's because you sure did have fun finding such cute things there. The seahorse plates are fun. Are you serving crab cakes or sea bass today?

  23. Oh what fun! You really worked your fish theme well. I like all your fish jugs centering your theme! Lovely job Shelia!!

  24. Oh my gosh, I love those fish jugs with the ferns and candle in them! And the seahorse plate and beach balls...such a fantastic table!! :)

    You do know how to treat fish. Terrific table, under the sea...
    Anything aquatic goes far in my book. Thanks for the peek.

  31. Shelia, I'm singing the praise for Marshall's for you!

    I was just recently at two Marshall's near me and none like those were even close! Those are so fun!

    Great looking table, I love all the "fishy" touches! :-D

  37. You have been busy Marshall shopping, Shelia, and I love everything you bought. I like all the fishy, crabby, seahorsey accessories, all so pretty and I just love the certerpieces you put all together....Christine

    ReplyDelete
  38. Well, I swaney, Miss Sheila if you haven't outdone yourself with fishes on this Tablescape Thursday. You truly did a wonderful job putting together all things from the sea.

    I do love it! The colors are perfect for sea loving tablescapers and the dishes are out of this world! Yes, yes I love Marshall's! Please don't give me yet another reason to stop and shop! LOL!

    Your aqua blues are just gorgeous. You get an A+!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. You cracked me up this week Ms. Shelia!! The plates are adorable, the fish are hilarious (are they supposed to be?! I especially like the one holding the candle in its mouth!). Cute little touches. This one made me smile!

    Blessings,
    Linda

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well, you've shown your creativity with this tablescape. Just darling the way you've pulled all your fish jugs together. My favorites are the seahorse plates and those adorable salt and pepper shakers. Great job! Stella would be pleased!

    ReplyDelete
  41. OH SHELIA! I thought something completely different when I read "FISH JUGS" I was so glad it wasn't the minnow traps I remember from my childhood! I thought - how is she gonna make that beautiful? But - no doubt - you would have. This is so gorgeous! Great job, and I love the color combo. Looks like my bedroom - a work in progress, but I'll show it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, this is absolutely WONDERFUL! You are so gooooood at this tablescaping stuff! And I even though I don't know diddly about putting together a tablescape myself, I do agree with Karen...those little forks are shrimp/seafood forks because I have some that go with my flatware.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Shelia, your table is so pretty! I love the ocean theme. Love the seahorse plates.

    ReplyDelete
  44.

  45. Oh your fishy tablescape is so delightful! The aqua tablecloth is just perfect, and I love those seahorse plates. I've never seen anything like them before! I love all the other accessories too, the fish jugs, the seashell candleholder, the fishegg napkin rings, and those awesome lobster beach balls! I thoroughly enjoyed everything!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh Shelia, I will definitely join the cheer for Marshalls! What a fun table you have set. I love that soft, watery aqua color -- so subtle and beautiful!

    Oh, and I had to laugh when you said you "ironed the snot" out of that tablecloth... LOL

    xoxo,

    ReplyDelete
  47. You are just too cute!! I loved this post & I love your tablescape. And I looooooooooove Marshalls. Except for their long lines (don't get me started). I have to stay away from there or I spend too much money. I'm going through Marshall withdrawals right now. You won't tell if I sneak to Marshalls & buy something? I didn't think so. Thanks for sharing all your fishies.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Shelia, I was giggling all through this one. Love it! I'm not normally a fan of fish anything, but these are just darling! I love your centerpiece, how cute! I am definitely going to have to find out if there's a Marshall's anywhere near here.
    Again, great table!

  49. Hello my funny little friend Shelia...I don't know what I enjoyed more...seeing your pretty tablescape (done to perfection) or your witty & fun commentary...LOL
    I've really missed visiting your blog while I've been on break, but I hope to be back to regular blogging when we come back from Colorado. See ya later, ;-) Bo

  50. :( I've never been to Marshall's, I don't know that we even have one around here! I feel like I'm missing out!!!

  53. Morning Pickle! Girl you can make a table look like a million bucks!!!! Love it sweetie...looks like something right out of a magazine...we don't have a Marshalls around here...sounds like our TJ Maxx....you know I love that place! lol

    I want some pretty white dishes but I just can't find the right ones...and when I do see some that I like I have to hold on to the buggy to keep from fainting when I see the price tag! lol

    Beautiful post as always dear friend..loved my visit....have a glorious day sweetie! ~♥~

    ReplyDelete
  54. Your 1957 silverware is my age, Shelia! I like this theme a lot. So full of fun and beachy and shells made of anything are always a hit with us decorators, aren't they? I guess we girls have suddenly become dishaholics. At least it has been sudden for me. Now I don't know where on earth to store all the dishes I keep wanting to purchase! Think there's a support group out there for us? Oh yeah, it's here at Susan's!

  55. Shelia, this is adorable...thank you Marshalls! What a great looking table. It is perfect in every way. The only thing missing is an....aquarium! hahahaha. OK seriously, I love the fishy theme and all your little added extras!

  60. Mornin' Sheila...

I adore your little seahorse plates...I think I need some! Hehe! Your place setting is gorgeous!!! I have to tell you though...your fabulous centerpiece is the first thing to take my eye when I looked at your beautiful photos!!! It's so grand!!!

Hmmm...never thought to check if they have a web site...I'll have to do that!

  69. I do believe I need to buys some stock in Marshall's. We bloggers can keep it thriving all by ourselves.

    Shelia, I feel quite afloat enjoying your tablescape. My gills are working on double speed.

    It is really gorgeous, and the colors are so soothing.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Another exquisite table creation from our most melodic Shelia. Are you ever going to run out of dishes to scape with? lol
    I feel so left out, I have no birds, no fish jugs or a cloche. Hmmm? Maybe I'd better swing by TJ's later.

  72. What a great table! Shelia, those fish plates are so great, and perfect with your fish jugs. There is something fishy going on in Blogville, because I used some fish plates (not as neat as yours) on my tablescape also! Your tablecloth looked so smooth to me. I am not good at iron tablecloths, so when I read that you had trouble with yours, I was so excited and started looking for wrinkles, but couldn't find any. What pretty and soothing colors are on this table. Love those bread and butter plates. laurie

  73. Hi Sheila...

    Just read the sweet note that you left for me on my tablescape...thank you so much for coming by and for your awesome comment and compliments! You made my day, my friend!!! Thanks so much for the well wishes too!

  75. What a fun tablescape this was, Shelia! I was in Marshalls a couple of weeks ago and saw the white fish jugs. I came so close to buying one, thinking of you and also thinking how proud you'd be of me for having one. But where would I put it?

    Justine :o )

  76. I was catching up on your posts again. Love the fish jugs. Enjoyed the If I were rich post. Great job on the tablescape. Such fun catching up with you. Did you ever find out anything about the bandwith issue?

  77. YIKES! Those poor fish are choking on the candles and ferns shoved down their throats!

  79. Hii Shelia:
    Thanks so much for visiting me on my new blog The Tablescaper. I'm loving blog land. Interestingly, although I thought I had combed every inch of Between Naps on the Porch, I had never been on your blog before. I love your blog!!! I love tea parties too and have had many. Your fishes are great. It's neat how you mixed the blue and aqua together. I have a lot of sea type dishes but tend to keep the blue seperate from the aqua. I'll have to try it. - The Tablescaper

  80. Sorry it's taken me this long to drop by after this I'm checking out your first blue fish jugs post. My friend has those in a pretty bright orange - do they gurgle when you pour them out? I'm off to check out Marshall's and Homegoods this afternoon. I hope you left some good things behind for me. ~ Robyn
