Thanks to Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for hosting this weekly fun Tablescaping adventure. I'm blaming her for my recent addiction to dishes! It's great finding all the inexpensive places to find them though. Visit her site for a list of everyone taking part in this.
Yes, I'm still setting up outside on the deck. A few of you have asked how I was coming with my dining room furniture search. Not good! Can't find the chairs I want. I passed up two dining room sets at garage sales last week. One was $30!! And a more Queen Anne one was $50!! They both had 6 chairs with them. Neither was really the style I have in mind BUT if I had had a truck I'd probably own both . . . just because. The table tops needed refinishing so they were the perfect ones to PAINT!!
All the dishes here are from Goodwill at $2.00 for the black and $1.00 each for the white with black edging. I'm becoming a GW fanatic! Tomorrow is 35% off everything and I can't go because I have to meet the farrier at the barn!! RATS!
You may be wondering why the cream & sugar?? I have recently gotten black cups but didn't have them when I set this up. Just pretend they're here : ))
I didn't know if this setting was a little too formal for the cabbage s & p but I like the color here. Oh well!
I have quite a few crystal candlesticks but as I discovered when I set this table, I have no tall tapered candles! They've probably all gotten out of shape and I've thrown them away! Well, something else to shop for : ))
I love how these napkin rings look. I got them and the napkins on sale at Pier 1. The rings were a little over $1.00 each and the napkins were .69 each!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I actually remember getting this pitcher as a wedding gift from my mom's best friend. I've always used it for flowers.
The metal tops of the little jar candles held the apples perfectly! The silver ware is Community Onieda.
I really like this stemware and I got it at GW for $1.00 each! Got four : ))

Have a fabulous Thursday. I'm visiting with a kitchen planner this evening!!!
