Blue Willow Tablescape

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm joining the many dishaholics to play with our dishes for Tablescape Thursday. This most wonderful playtime is hosted by our own Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Make sure you pop over to see her and be dish inspired!

It's gloomy, gray and rainy outside today. I could be blue and sad because I have seen no sunshine. But no, no Nannette! I'll not be blue. I'll be happy...

I'll just set my table with my Blue Willow dishes!

Edit Edit Edit!!! Oh, my goodness, Dear Ones, I've just looked back at my post and to my horror! I forgot to put down the silverware! Oh, my goodness! Just ignore that ok?

There is just something about Blue Willow dishes that make me happy inside.

I've combined my Blue Willow with creamy colored salad plates from Big Lots.

My Blue Willow is by Churchill (England) and the dinner plate is sitting upon a pretty white charger from Marshalls.

I adore my tiny little bread plates, don't you?

I have my tiny little oil and vinegar carafes on the table for your salad. I am missing one little cork! I will survive though!

Here is the gravy boat just in case I cook! :)

Lookkee here! Our little Target birds have come out of hiding to sit upon my table. I have two pairs to sit at each end of the table.

I'm using some of my olden crystal. Had these for centuries!

For my centerpiece I've stolen, um, borrowed an idea from Marty at A Stroll Through Life. I poked some of my white birds under cloches with roses - faux, of course. You know how I feel about my fauxs. :)

These little birds are not blue, but they are doing their job - making me happy!

The trio of little birds! Well, shoot! I guess I'll have to cook now. The little bird on the right is singing for his tiny supper! Maybe some birdseed would fill the bill! :) PUN! I'm so clever you know!! You know I'm kidding! ;)

Many of us have these little holy birds from Michaels or is it Hobby Lobby? I don't remember. Anyway, what a sweet little family we have here.


I hoped you've enjoyed my Blue Willow table filled with birds and sitting on my very olden tablecloth. What? I know it's raining outside. What? You're staying for dinner? Okay! I'll get my apron and start cooking! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Blue Moon

Blue moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own.

Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayet for someone I really could care for.

And suddenly there appeared before me the only one my arms could ever hold
I heard someone whisper, "Please, adore me"
And when I looked my moon had turned to gold.

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
Without a love of my own.
