Tablescape Thursday ~ Pink Quilt

Tablescape Thursday is upon us. Please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see lots of tables set for your pleasure.


This table is from my condo in Southern California. I used a Shabby Chic quilt for the tablecloth originally from Target that I purchased at Goodwill.


Everything on this table again is from Goodwill except for the wired cloche and the flowered napkins.



I’m so glad I had this post in my archives because it has been waaayyyy to Hot Hot Hot here in the great Northwest to get creative with a tablescape or exert the energy to set the table. I just looked at my outdoor thermometer and it registers at 100! It’s official now Western Washington has set history at having the hottest temps ever on record. The latest weather for my area is 103.6! Hope you are cooler where you are.

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 Tuesday ~ Pink & Green

It’s time for Tablescape Tuesday again hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

I have always really enjoyed pink and green together so it was fun to set this table.



The pink dishes are some Vernon Ware I found at Goodwill. There were only 4 dinner plates, 3 cups and saucers, and a creamer and vegetable bowl. I bought them all because I enjoy this older California ware. The depression glass bowl was from a little thrift store I frequent as are the Bavarian cups and saucers I added to make 4 place settings. The square green plates are originally from target that I bought in a box of 4 from Goodwill.


The clear pink glass salad/dessert plates I bought from Fred Meyer a few years ago when they went on clearance. I have several of them so I can use them for showers. Most of them are at my home in Washington but I brought 6 to have here in California. The pink goblets that I only have 4 of were purchased at the little thrift store, too.


The striped napkins I bought at the little thrift store and the outer napkins were purchased at Sur la Table. The sliverware is 1847 Rogers with a B engraved on each piece.  Believe it or not I bought the set of 56 pieces at Goodwill for $29.00. That was a few years ago and I haven’t seen as nice a set available since.

I already made my confession about this tablescape on my Pink Saturday Post but for those of you who don’t participate in Pink Saturday here it is again… My table cloth was a shower curtain and my napkin rings were shower curtain hooks originally!

To see more tablescapes head over to Susan’s!

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.

Pink Saturday ~ Vernon Ware

Welcome to my Pink Saturday. I’m at a family Christmas cooking day today and hope to get around to all the lovely Pink tomorrow! Have a wonderful Saturday everyone.


Look at what I found at Goodwill this week. This is Vernon Ware Pottery, a California Pottery. The Pattern is from their Native American Collection. I love the pink and the details. All these pieces (10 in total) cost me $.69 cents for each piece. $6.90 total. How could I walk away from that bargain???

For more Pink visit our lovely hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

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.
