Let There Be White!

The time is here to show our white and Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen is our lovely hostess. Click on over to join in or to see more white.


A lot of old white mixed in with new white.


I was happy to be able to pull out my white creamers to use as vases for the white flowers. The milk glass cake pedestal is from my MIL Verna’s collection that we ended up with.




The milky white hob nail dishes are from my MIL, too.


While I was putting together my white table I had an audience. My daughter Katie joined in the fun by putting the white flower in her hair while she ate her breakfast cereal…

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.

Tablescape Thursday ~ Blue-Green

It’s time again to see lots of fun tables around the bloggy world. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is our hostess for this weekly event.

I’m in Seattle this week with my table set right now for dinner. My kids are all going to be here for a sit down meal. This table I’m showing you is not tonight’s but one from my Condo in Southern California. I’ll try to add some descriptions tomorrow, but right now I’ve got to run get dinner on the table. Happy almost Thursday everyone…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.

Tablescape Tuesday ~ Condo Christmas Table

Welcome to Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

This is the Christmas Tablescape I came up with for the eating area at the Condo.




The Chargers are from T.J. Max on clearance for a dollar each. The dinner plates are from Marshall’s, the salad plates are from a thrift store originally from Mervyn’s, and the crystal dessert cups are from Goodwill. Believe it or not the full set of silverplate for 8 with the letter B engraved on them are from Goodwill in Washington that I found a couple years ago. The full set cost me $29.00.


The tablecloth, runner, and napkins, goblets, reindeer, and brass candlesticks are all from the thrift store.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007 to 2015 hostage and has replaced them all with ugly black and grey boxes asking for a ransom to have them re-published. Such a frustrating bother as I go through each post to delete the ugly boxes.

Blue Monday

This Vase was a gift to my husband when the company he worked for was purchased by another company and it ceased to be. It was a great company to work for and it was a “Blue” day for sure when this company was no more. It’s a Kosta Boda, designed by Anna Ehrner. It’s from her Atoll collection. Atolls are circular coral islands embracing lagoons in tropical seas. By candlelight, Anna Ehrner’s crystal look like shimmering little atolls. Atoll is a uniquely designed piece of traditional Swedish glass handicraft from the Smaland province.


I bought this little creamer last week at Goodwill for $2.95. I love blue and white on dishes and creamers are a weakness of mine. I especially enjoy these old time scenes on blue and white dishes.

For more Blue Monday visit Smiling Sally. Have a wonderful week everyone.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and demanding a ransom for me to access them. I’m slowly cleaning up many of my posts where PB have added ugly black and grey boxes where my photos used to be. So frustrating!
