A Little Tablescape

Hello, Dear Ones!
I've set the table in the breakfast room and thought I would share it with you.

Aqua and sunshine. Looks like a summer morning to me.
Do you agree?
I popped right into Kroger and looked in the discounted flower bin
 and found these little lovelies for $3! Works for me!
I've used these little olden dishes. I love their delicate look.
They have the daintiest design in the center of the bowls, plates and around the border.
I don't know anything about them except I know they make me smile.
Hope you're smiling too! :)
Yellow flowers and yellow napkins are the sunshine of my little tablescape.
I really do love my milk glass pitcher and it makes a perfect holder for my sunshine! :)
I've added a quirky little retro looking lidded bowl. 
It seems a little too big for a sugar bowl.
Do I care? No, no Nannette, I do not care because I love it anyway.
I'll just poke some fluffy white clouds in it!
I bought two of these little teeny tiny butter dishes. 
They are the only things new on the table, 
well except the flowers, um, I mean the sunshine.
I wish the shop had had two more but alas only these two. 
I can put little butter pats in them...
oooooooooooooooooor maybe some dew drops!
This was a little Christmas gift and is perfect with my little table.
I poked in a little tea light candle for a little flicker.
You do know a firey romance can start that way ~ 
just a little flicker! :)
Well, there you have my little tablescape filled with aqua and sunshine! :)
You grab the bowl of fruit from the fridge and I'll take the quiche out of the oven! :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


Girl you got this need to know what I'm all about  
There is something that you dig you can't figure out 
Well, you wanna know what moves my soul  
And what ticks inside of my brain 
But I've got this need I just can't control and it's  
A drivin' me insane, 
I can't take it
Because I'm hungry for those good things, baby  
Hungry through and through I'm hungry for that sweet life, baby 
With a real fine girl like you
I could almost taste it It's sweet as wine
There's a custom tailored world that I wanna own someday  
With a special place up high where we can stay alone you and me 
Girl, I'm gonna have it all someday if you'll just hang on to my hand 
If I break some rules along the way, girl, you  
You gotta understand 
It's my way of gettin' what I want now, 'cause I'm hungry
Yes, I'm hungry for those good things, baby
Hungry through and through 
Well, I'm hungry for that sweet life, baby  
With a real fine girl like you
I can almost taste it now 
Oh, it's sweet as wine  
Ain't gonna waste it now 
When it's finally mine
Gonna live each minute, fill the hours and days 
 'Til I've had my fill, girl, I'll be rollin' in it  
Yes, yes, you know I will, yes I will
'Cause I'm hungry for those good things, baby  
Hungry through and through I'm hungry for that sweet life, baby 
With a real fine girl like you
Hungry for those good things, baby 
Hungry through and through I'm hungry for that sweet life, baby  
With a real fine girl like you

  2. Oh your table is just so SWEET!

    Love it - and you are so right- those flowers are total sunshine!


  3. How very, very pretty, Shelia. I love that sweet aqua color and those flowers are gorgeous-as are your dishes. xo Diana

  4. Such a lovely and cheerful table setting. Love the yellow flowers, what a deal too for you!

  5. That lidded bowl is adorable. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it!

  6. I will be there as soon as I can! What a sweet table!!

  7. It looks beautiful, Shelia! Love the colors!

    Visiting from Share Your Cup.

  9. These dishes are so pretty, Shelia, love the softness of the color. Such a pretty table to sit down at and enjoy breakfast. xo

  10. I really like the different shades of blue!

    Paul Revere and the Raiders.... that's an oldie for sure. xo

  11. Shelia,
    This certainly is a drop of Sunshine Tablescape, dear friend!!!
    Dainty dinnerware, just exquisite!
    Love the milkware pitcher aka vase with your lovely yellow roses.
    My maternal Aunt taught and lived in Big Spring, Texas. . .
    she loved The Yellow Rose of Texas, although she was born in Kansas.
    Thank you for the invitation to join you on this lovely Summer day!

  12. Oh Sheila how lovely your dishes are. So bright and cheerful. What a deal you got on your beautiful flowers.
    Have a great week end.

  13. This is so sweet, Shelia! Isn't it funny how a bouquet of flowers can lead to setting a pretty table?! I noticed that retro covered dish right just don't see that shade of blue anymore. Pretty dishes, too! Very happy tablescape! :)


  14. I love your pretty the colors and the flowers just set it all off to a tee...

  15. Hi, In our new home I have added aqua to my dining room. I just love your dishes! We are having a very rainy summer. Hope you are enjoying some real sunshine there!

  16. Very lovely, Shelia! I adore the dishes & pretty flowers. It would be fun eating breakfast at your table.


  17. Very pretty, Shelia. I love the butter dish especially!

  18. So pretty! =)
    Love your table setting, and your flowers are lovely!

    Im a new GFC and Bloglovin Follower, Have a great evening!

  19. I love your pretty china set, what a great vintage vibe it has. I have several plates that are like those but not exactly, they are a nice turquoise leaf pattern. Your tablescape is lovely and the flowers are the perfect touch. I am going to attempt a tablescape this weekend, I'm not very good at them, but I will refer to your pretty table for help.
    Hugs, Cindy

  20. Looks like a happy way to start the day. Love a table with sunshine! '-)

  21. I love the pale blue and yellow together. Beautiful!

  22. The subtle wheat leaves on the plate are quite lovely Shelia. This is a beautiful tablescape.

  23. So pretty, Shelia. I love those little butter dishes. I've never seen anything like those, but I'm going to be on the lookout for them now. Your sunshine is so pretty in the pitcher. laurie

  24. SO pretty -- I have some retro dishes that are turquoise and that little 'sugar' bowl would go perfectly LOL! A very pretty little table you've set!

  25. Oh Shelia, I was admiring your flatware (cutlery)! You must tell the story to it, if there is one. I have been scouring the stores both real and internet for a new cutlery set, but in Oz, what I'm after is sorely lacking. Yours look just the bees knees and what I'm after. :) :)

  26. What a pretty tablescape, Sheila! Lovely blue too :) ~Pernilla

  27. Hi Sheila, I love the design on the dishes and the yellow and aqua is such a cheerful color combination. Perfect for summer! Love that sunshine and roses! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  28. Shelia this table makes me smile. Love the sunshine and the aqua! Those colors remind me of you....aqua for the ocean and the yellow for sunshine which you are! Always smiling and making others smile too!

  29. Hello Shelia, this does look like a perfect summery tablescape - I LOVE getting clearance flowers from Kroger - yours are marvelous - truly love that turquoise color! I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
