Another Blue Favorite!


**I just realized that last week's entry was my 100th post in blogland! Wow! ;~) **


I looked at my table this morning and thought, I think I will keep it up for one more week and skip Tablescape Thursday this week. Then I remembered I just last week bought a couple of really pretty tablerunners at GW ($2 each!). Ok, I will keep the blue and change out a few things. Skipping Tablescape Thursday is like not having ice cream when everyone else is eating it anyway, soo I changed my mind. Really all I kept was the blue candles and those flower napkin rings on the centerpiece- dishes are same pattern but changed up a bit, I put the little hurricane lamps over different candlesticks and the large hurricane hosts my little birdie. I also put the white pillars on the large candlesticks.


The hurricane lamp/bird happened by accident- I bought the hurricane lamp for .79 at Salivation Army in hopes of finding another one to go with it, and just put it over the bird to have somewhere to store it! It looks good, huh? (Just noticed- on the chair-the top to the glass cleaner bottle. Whoops! oh, well, can't have a glass table without it!)

The setting- the silver is Grosvenor 1921- bought off ebay for next to nothing.

Be sure and visit Between Naps on the Porch where Susan throws this lovely Tablescape party every Thursday!

Have a blessed week and I appreciate your visit and your comments!

Love,

Nana, may be you did not chaged a lot on this table, but it makes such a different view. And this table is also very elegant. I love those neutral tablesettings which allows everything, to play a main roll. The hurricane lamp is so cute with the birdie.
Greetings, Johanna

So smart putting the hurricane on top of that little bird. It looks perfect. I like the quiet, simple elegance of this table. Everything is so restful. This is a table to linger over, after dinner.

So lovely! We both did neutral-colored tables this week -- yours is so soothing and elegant! I love the way the flowers echo the pattern in the pretty runner.

The warmth of the candlelight is so appealing, set against the icy coolness of your beautiful crystal candleholders and the soft blues of the table runner! I love that you pointed out the sprayer of the glass cleaner in the chair! It takes a lot of work to make something look beautiful and effortless, doesn't it? ;)

Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend!
