Wednesdays are usually BFF days around here (I do something with my daughter and grandson- Best Friends Forever- I think my hubby started calling it that and even she calls it that now and of course it is BFF day everyday I am with all of my kids!) but today, I had to work in the afternoon and my house was a wreck, so I decided to clean and nothing cleans up a house better than a good ole Tablescape- am I right? So I took down the red, white and blue and just did a blue and white.
I think the other title I should have used for my blog is "Just Call Me Candlelady!" I have a nice little hoard stockpile of candles that I find at thrift stores and I should have partial ownership of Yankee Candle. The little hurricane lamps were gifted to me by my sister, Tammy and they fit perfectly in those candlesticks. I also bought some of that sticky stuff to help some of my candles stand up a little better and it worked like a charm.
I played around a little with the lighting and flash again and I think I like it best with no flash but with the light in the dining room on- I always do my table in the morning. Here is the place setting. Notice the bowls- are they round? No. Are they square? No. They are oblongish- you should have seen my son looking at this bowl when he was putting his ice cream in it- he said, "I am trying to wrap my head around this", as he twirled the bowl around. I love them- another addition to my Ironstone found by eagle-eye Tammy- she found the bowls, a large platter (remember I broke one that she found for me) and 2 small little oval platters- my collection is growing and I love it. These particular ones, however weren't marked on the bottom.
I mentioned my sister above- my hubby and I went to her house for the day on Monday and we actually ATE at one of her Tablescapes! My husband didn't know how to act- "We are actually sitting at the table? Using the plates?" Funny man. It was great though!
Be sure and check out some other tables at our weekly Tablescape Thursday party hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch .
