Hi Everyone! Welcome to Just Call Me Nana! For the past- um I think 25 weeks or so, I have been participating in the fun blog party, Tablescape Thursdays, hosted by Susan from Between Naps on the Porch it is a lot of fun and I was so happy to find other dish lovers and bargain hunters- particularly those who find such great stuff at thrift stores! (There is one blog owner whose blog name is Mr. Goodwill Hunting isn't that adorable?) I have also worked pretty hard on my blog here recently and I am really pleased with it! It is nice to have visitors, but if I am the only one looking at my blog, I am still happy about it! (Especially since I learned how to do the nice big pics! I am just so techno!)
This morning I realized I had to take down the Easter table and I just didn't know what the heck to do. It is spring, but no holiday, um, what do I have? What is something I haven't used/done? So, I found some placemats and napkins that I got for a couple of bucks somewhere (originally Pottery Barn, I think)so I used those and brought out my trusty new fav Ironstone dishes (oh, and my sister (Tammy) scored me some more today! I swear, she should have started collecting it!)
I used the 2 placemats as a runner and dragged the cute little teapot from 2 weeks ago, back out- put some flowers in her (I think a pineapple would have been cute too, because the napkins/placemats just remind me of a luau!)
My sister also found this great silverware, which also says "LUAU" to me- she found a huge set of it and split it with me- it has some of the most different pieces to it.
Since I only have 3 red chargers (hey, they were given to me!) I used 2 red, and 2 gold-it works! I also had to use those cute little bread knives too.
Here are the most interesting serving pieces I have ever seen!
It was great to get another usage out of the Christmas candles!
