Sunflowers & Hydrangeas


Hello, Dear Ones!
Sit down and relax because I've got lots of snaps to show you today.
I had such a fun time putting this tablescape together, 
and because I love you I wanted to share. ;)
 I named my tablescape Sunflowers & Hydrangeas 
because of my little centerpiece I put together.
 See?
 My tablecloth is really a crocheted bedspread my little grandma made many years ago.
I think it worked perfectly for my tablecloth.
 These dishes belong to my little mother and they are called Shakespeare Country 
and are made by Homer Laughlin. They're pretty olden too.

I used two different napkin rings, you can do that you know, on napkins I made years ago.

 Everyone needs a lemon.
 
 My little candle holders came from my aunt and they match mothers glasses too.
Are these called Candlewick? I'm not sure.
 These salt and peppers are a different pattern but the colors are the same so of course I poked them down on my table.
 Aren't these little houses cute?
Well, years ago Mr. Precious and I flew back home from Italy on KLM airlines and were given these little houses. Years passed and someone told me they had liquor in them. I didn't know that! 
We're not drinkers and the liquor is still in there. 
Listen while I shake 'em up for you. :) Hear it?
 I bought these little salt and peppers for mother to go with these dishes.
Gotta have a few little birdies too.
 Got our dessert plates poked up on a little cake stand just waiting for dessert.

Sweet.
 I've added a couple of yellow candles to match the lemons and sunflowers.
 Here's my centerpiece ~ sunflowers and hydrangeas ~ that I put together.
 I'll be quiet now and let you look at my pretty little flowers.

 Thanks for popping in to see me and I do appreciate your comments.
Oh, and I love you too! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
