I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

My New Vintage China~~

My Inspiration for this tabescape is the love of
Vintage and Depression Glass as you can see~~
This is a full picture of my four layers of China.
The blue glass bowl is for Broccoli salad .
I love the colors on this Vintage China so sweet~~
Hi ladies my white dishe is back!!
I did use my white plates on my blue vintage ruffled round placemats, then put my new
Vintage China plates on top ~~ The pattern is Roses and Purple lilac by Sevres.
This China is 100 years old 1900-1908 from Coastal New England.
I love the Dollar Stores~~ this plate was one dollar !
My centerpiece is put together with four blue Ball Perfect Mason Jars.
My good friend Sue knows I love Vintage ~~Thanks sweet lady!! I will put her link on
at the end of my post. Sue has her own business this was
a Dream come true for her~~~ The name of her business is
Past and Prescnt Antiques & Flea Market in Cumberland, MD.
I can not see the name on my Flatware ~~
But I do know it is very old !!
I made my Napkins for this Tablescape one more time.
Ladies it time to eat dinner ~~I hope you like Grilled Raspberry Chicken,
Creamed new potatoes and for Dessert Strawberry short cake.
I hope you all come Back !! Please take a moment to comment.
Thank you so much ! I am linking up with these Blog for there linky parties.

Hi! Just wanted to tell you that my old blog "Hidden Treasures of the Midwest" has been over/closed/whatever for quite a while. It used to be hidden when you clicked on my name, but I wonder if all the Blogger issues made is show up again. You can find me only at ineedmom.blogspost.com Thanks for returning the visit!

Gorgeous as always....I love the flowered plates, so dainty and delicate! I have some up and coming dishes that I am going to post, I would LOVE to see you do a place setting with Polish Pottery. Mine should be here tomorrow. It's so intricate and eye popping, and your eye for detail, I bet it would be amazing.
