It’s been awhile since I participated in Tablescape Thursday but I wanted to use some of my Christmas gifts before I leave Washington and head back to Southern California on Sunday.Visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see more scapes!
The table inspiration started with these chargers my kids bought me for Christmas. They also gave me the linen table runner which compliments the pewter.
Dear and I purchased the 4 pewter wine goblets in England in 1974.
I picked up the pewter candlesticks at Goodwill for a steal. The pewter salt and pepper shakers were a wedding gift to us from 1974.
The Pewter tankards are also from England. We bought them in 1974, too. The napkin rings are a wedding gift from 1974 and they are sterling silver Gorham 1332. My MIL bought them at Henshey’s in Santa Monica. Does anyone remember that store? It’s long gone now…
There are no markings on the covered dish/server at the center of my table. I don’t think it’s safe for food and I only use it for decoration.
I love the design and colors in my new runner. Thanks Josh and Laura!
The green goblets are from Goodwill, too.
I bought 8 dinner plates and 8 salad plates of these country scenes from Marshalls. Royal Stafford, made in England.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year. May 2010 be filled with God’s blessings for you…
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
