I did it! Another Tablescape Thursday!

Time for another Tablescape Thursday! A real fun day of the week. I will have to say, I didn't think I was up to doing one this week as I still liked last week's and this being my 26th or so Tablescape- I am running out of different stuff. But, I think I came up with a good one- my new fav! The centerpiece is a leftover from last week- I just bunched up a pinkish tablerunner around it and put it in a floating candle dish. (Really wanted to go out and get some pink roses, but I resisted temptation!)


My sister (Tammy) just gave me a whole box of my new love, Ironstone ( I call it swirly, but most of what she got was Snowwhite Regency- love that name, don't you?) I happened to have one bowl like the 3 others she gave me! I am up to 19 dinner plates! and I think 14 cups and saucers! Not bad for a new collector! This is a pretty good picture of my goldware! (These pictures were all taken in the morning with no flash)




I love the Ironstone so much that in all reality, I could use it every week and just change it's surroundings! Today I found 4 little side plates (swirly with Christmas holly on them!) I like the pineapple napkin rings too- (Pineapples represented hospitality back in the day!)

I just bunched up the lace runner for a little depth and I think I had a little candle drip on it to hide!

Another beautiful table - the swirly ironstone is a classic that works with everything - as you always demonstrate.....

You did a lovely job on the table. I really like the dishes and you are fortunate to have so many. I don't know how many times I have gotten hooked on dishes only to have them discontinued in a year and wishing I had more. Thanks for the post.

Dawn, very lovely table...26 weeks, I remember when you did your first table, not long after I did my first...how time flies when you are having fun!

Love the Regency. I have it, too. Johnson Brothers also makes a pattern called Summer Chintz that has the same swirls with delicate flowers in pink and yellow added. I love it, too!!

It's fun to mix and match, and the Regency is always great to work with.

This is my first comment on anyone's blog!! Hope I did it right!

Hi Nana,
Your table setting is elegant and just lovely. The Divine Mercy image caught my eye and I read your profile. Welcome to the Holy Roman Catholic Church! Have a blessed week!

So lovely and glamourous. I feel I am "undressed" just looking at it. Perhaps if I were wearing a 1940's bias cut evening gown. The candlelight is so beautiful!

Hi Nana,

Whow, what a table. Looks gorgeous. This stoneware is amazing. And I like your centerpiece. It's outstanding.
Greetings, Johanna
