Tablescape Thursday

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm joining our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday! What a fun time for those of us who like to play with our dishes! After visiting me, pop on over to Susan's blog to visit all the other participants.

Today I've set my table with some dishes I found at a thrift shop a couple of years ago. I love them! You ask...can you love thrift shop dishes? Why you bet your little bargain prices you can! :)

Oops, would please straighten my tiny knife? It's crooked! I'm so ashamed! I'm using some olden silverware that belonged to my dear aunt.

Here's the pattern. Isn't it pretty? I know nothing about the pattern . It's called "Bluebells" by Eterna - Japan. But I love it! Can you? Of course you can. Also the color is not blue but a pretty purple.

Found these perfect little napkin rings at an estate sale and knew they would work wonderfully with my tiny Bluebells dishes. Little Miss Perfect Napkin Ring is holding a Battenburg Lace napkin.

I'm using glassware that I purchased many many years ago at Dillard's and of course ~ they're purple. Perfectly purple. :)

Little bread plates and my olden thrifted butter knives. I have so much love to go around when it comes to my dishes and accessories. :)

Now my wonderfully beloved Bluebells dishes did not come with serving pieces! Shoot! Don't you hate it when that happens? Well, you just do the best you can, don't you? So I poked on the table my Fostoria Americana butter dish. I believe it works.

Gaze your Most Gorgeous Peppers on these little salt cellars! Another estate sale find! Now I'm really in love here! Oh, my goodness...can you love little estate sale salt cellars with matching spoons? Well, you bet your little special sea salt crystals you can! :)

Another thrifted find...I'm on a roll here! A sugar bowl! A very pretty purple flowered sugar bowl! Does it match my Bluebells dishes? Well, no, but it'll do, don't you think? Isn't she pretty? You know how much in love I am with her and her soft purpleness but I'll spare you my sentiment.

Oh, our most beloved Target birdies! I know, I know, I'm using salt cellars but they're just so cute and they do a good job of filling some space on my table. Smile, sweeties! :)

Then I found this lovely little purpleness of flower serving plate and had to have it. Perfect!

Here's my centerpiece. I'm using a floral arrangement I made a few years ago and I'm faux happy! :) Faux flowers, yep, I love 'em and my fauxs just love me to pieces!

Don't you think my tiny faux of flowers are pretty? Oh, they are pretty and honey don't they know it! :)

I found some candlesticks I thought would work well with my tablescape. The globes are a pretty purpleness of color and I've poked in some little ball candles.

There are only two and they are graduated in size so I thought I would place them both on either side of my floral instead of one on each side.

Now Dear Ones, you just come on in and sit down right here. See my very olden tablecloth? I ironed it just for you because you mean so much to me! ;)

Thank you all for popping in to see me today and make sure you go and visit Susan for lots of dish fun!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Wear Your Love Like Heaven

Color in sky Prussian blue
Scarlet fleece changes hue
Crimson ball sinks from view

Wear your love like heaven
(Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven
(Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven
(Wear your love)
Lord, kiss me once more, fill me with song
Kiss me once more that I may, that I may
Wear my love like heaven
(Wear my love like)
Wear my love like heaven
(Wear my love)
La la, la la la, la la la, la la la

Color sky Havana lake
Color sky rose carmethene
Alizarian crimson

Can I believe what I see
All I have wished for will be
All our race proud and free
~ sung by Donovan
