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.

~~~ David Maass Collection.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape!!
 was my Collection of David Maass dishes.
He is an artist for the Texas duck stamp prints.
My collection is from 1988. If you like them go to ebay for more information.
Top left is called Misty Morning ~~ Top right is called In To Feed
left bottom Migrants ~~ right bottom Last Of The Season.
I did add my Churchill China~Blue Willow plates to them. I made my napkins, do you remember them?
This is the soup bowl. I love this with the green charger
and the gold ruffled round placemats.
This is just one of my David Maass display plates.
The plate is for show and not for food.
Dinner plate.
Lets have a glass of wine and light the candles.

Above is one more Christmas ornament for
my tree this year.


I put this centerpiece together for just this tablescape.

I hope you are all having a great day.
I prepared a lovely dinner for my family last night.
We started with cream of mushroom soup, followed with a mix salad with tomatoes and red onions topped of with a blue cheese dressing.
The main course was a dinner of creamed chicken and biscuits.
This was so easy to put together!
 Dessert was chocolate cream pie and was it so yummy..
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.
Look on my sidebar for more parties going on !!!

Just lovely. I have been collecting it for many years...and when I saw your napkins...well..HOW I would love to have them. Now I will be on the lookout for the fabric. Where did you ever find it. White is usually the only napkin that goes with the dish..other colors are ok..but yours..WONDERFUL!
I love that print so much.
