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 First Rooster~~

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was my first Rooster!!!
My Ceterpiece is a combination of my Rooster, Candlelight and
lots of  Daisys~~~ The tablecloth Is a robin blue, with  my
Crochet one on top!! for a farm house look~~ did I get the look ladies ?
I only have four layers of China this time.
 My chocolate brown soup bowl will be filled with home made Tomato soup !
The tomatos look so good in the stores right now.
I did purchased some new China from Pier 1 Imports~~
The salad plate has a ruffled eage with a flower pattern.The colors are robin egg blue
and white...

This dinner plate is Chocolate Brown with Robin egg blue ~~
I did use my white charger becouse of my dinner plate was square!!!
The pattern on my China is called Cassidy and is hand-painted ~~~
I did use a Chocolate brown placemat for a pop.
I hope you are having a wonderful Day !!!
Let's have some pink lemonaid with wine and light the candles !!!



I love my Mason jars ~~~
I know what's for dinner..
To night is Baked Lasagna with Garlic Bread soooo Good !!
and a Big green salad~~ for dessert New York cheese cake..
I did use my Vintage Flatware..
I hope you all come Back!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.
I hope you all come with me.

Diane,
This is certainly a tablescape to "crow" about! Sorry...I couldn't resist! Stunning is more appropriate! The choice of colors is refreshing. I adore how the brown grounds each setting! The blue is relaxing and invites one to linger after the meal for some time spent with family and friends!
Fondly,
Pat
