I am not Chicken!

Well it is time, once again, for Tablescape Thursday! Awhile back, I found a cute little tablerunner- at Goodwill for $2- with little chickens all over it. I thought it was so cute and really when you use mostly the same dishes (Ironstone) week after week, the tablerunner is what gives the inspiration! So, here goes my "Chickenscape"! I found the little cream colored chickens at the Tree and the colored ones at Salivation Army. The cute little egg basket I have had for an eternity! (You probably recognize the overused flowers from last week and the week before and for the Fourth of July- I just ripped the blue flowers off). My sister, Tammy also known as "Eagle Eye" gave me the cute little chicken napkin rings!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I don't get a lot of visitors, but that is ok, I do the tables for myself regardless. Doing so, just livens up the house, makes a beautiful statement and helps the desire to keep the house clean. (You can't have a tablescape in the middle of a mess!) Be sure and check out Between Naps on the Porch where Susan so graciously hosts this lovely Tablescape Thursday every week! I have been joining in now for almost a year! It has been fun!

Leave me a little note to say hi- love to know you have stopped by! Have a blessed week!


Love,

What fun! You silly goose...you could have saved it & joined Barb's Rooster Party at Bella Vista on Friday with this table!!! They could pass for roosters, I'm sure. ;-p

I really need to find a Goodwill near me! That is a great deal you got on the runner! Isn't it amazing how well white dishes work with different linens? Have a good day. Linda

Great use of color...I love the maize and the orange/red together. Great get on the table runner. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

I agree with Rettabug. They are roostery enough IMO! My HS colors were red and white, and our mascot was the gamecock. This table reminded me of that. I have always loved red, white, and chicken!

Wait. That did't sound right at all, did it?

This is just too precious! I would have never even thought of using that as a vase. PERFECT! And I'm secretly wondering how I can reach through the screen and grab those glass candlesticks! GORGEOUS! Thanks for sharing, and inspiring! :)
