Before the Summer Slips Away ~

I’m posting my last Summer Tablescape and joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her weekly event.







Thank you for stopping by. Hope you enjoy your last week of summer. I’ll be in South Carolina for the last day of summer and beginning of fall. I’m hoping the weather turns more fall like by then in the South but I know that will probably not be the case.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

Tablescape Thursday ~ In the Yard!

When I was at my home in Washington State I thought it would be fun to do a tablescape outdoors. The weather was lovely and I raced against the setting sun to set this table in my front yard. The neighbors are probably wondering about me…


This is a vintage tablecloth that my MIL had in her stash. The hobnob little clear & milky plates are from Dear’s Great, great aunt Emma. The old silver flatware is from Dear’s parents too.

We bought these beautiful daffodils at Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. I loved the fullness of them and the added orange.


Oh and looky here Jack Sparrow and Sparra Queen Warbeak made it into an actual tablescape!

For more Tablescape Thursday please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!

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.

Vintage Thingies Thursdays ~ Red & Yellow Tablecloth


This is another tablecloth from my MIL Verna. I love the bright cheery colors in this one. Verna had quite a stash of goodies. This cloth is really too small to use on my larger tables. It would be great on a small table for 4. I think it would look fabulous with some green or yellow dishes.

For more Vintage Thingies visit Confessions of an Apron Queen.

Photobucket is holding my photos hostage from 2007-2015 and replacing them with an ugly black and grey squares demanding money to release them, so frustrating.

Vintage Thingies Thursday

This is my first dive into Vintage Thursday.


This is one of the vintage tablecloths I have from my MIL Verna’s stash.


It’s the largest of the 5 or so that I inherited from her. I love the blues and pinks in this one.

Now I’m off to see more vintage goodies from around the blogs hosted by Confessions of an Apron Queen. Feel free to “come away with me” to those days gone by…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.
