Let's Dish # 9~ Which Came First?

Welcome to Meeting 9 of those who delight in dishes and table trinkets!
Last week without warning, the link disappeared!  Alycia and Lulu informed me, and I got the message while sitting in the eye doc's office waiting . I couldn't believe my eyes!  :)

Seriously, I got home and sure enough it was gone.
 So I added the code again, and reposted.

Three hours later the original link showed up!  I deleted the duplicate.
  So in case you thought you saw something that wasn't there, it's ok, it was!  Blame inlinkz, I had nothing to do with it!

On to tonight's business.
Let's Dish 251
Put all your eggs in one basket!  Well, I did, brown and white!

The inspiration for this table was this whimsical egg salt and pepper shaker from my friend Barb at Foley's Follies.
 Life is very busy for her these days, so she doesn't blog very much, but one of these days she will be back!

Let's Dish 252
Don't they just CRACK you up?  :)
I used a brown striped linen cloth from my favorite Duralee Outlet. ( remnant, $1.00)
Let's Dish 249
Treble clef flatware from the clearance at BBB, and then my 20 % coupon.
Rattan charger from Pfaltzgraf Dollar Day sale.
Brown plates from clearance at Pier One.
White from Century 21
Napkin from HG and alabaster napkin ring from WSonoma Outlet.
Let's Dish 259
Love these basket weave candles that were in the clearance at Michael's .

I used a black stemmed glass from Pfaltzgraff clearance outlet, and a tumbler that is about 70 years old that was my mom's.
 They are very thin, and ribbed, amazing they survived!
Let's Dish 251
No flowers and pastels tonight, but I am sure they will be back soon!

After all it is Spring till June 20th!
 
 Today is our 42nd wedding anniversary.  Our plans for the day got rained out!  Oh well!

  4. Sorry for your eye problems -- me too -- It's a drag getting old. Did you ever get my address? I emailed it a couple of times. Love this week's table -- original as always. Sorry for the trouble last week with Linky -- I couldn't see it, then I could. etc.

    1. Regular check up, Ellen. But of course they are getting worse. I don't need glasses to read, but forget distance!
      It will be in the mail this week. I thought I would get it out today as we were going over near the PO, but we got rained out.

I love the color combo and the napkins are TERRIFIC!!!!!!!!!!!!! Polka dots are one of those super happy elements that just can't be resisted. Your Mom's tumblers have lasted all this time without breakage??? That's fantastic! Congratulations!!! Have a happy evening!

  19. Love the S & P shakers from Barb! She always finds the neatest gifts. I can't wait to hit the beach, but we have bug season going on at the lake so I usually avoid the beach until July 4th weekend. A beach tablescape should be fun! Love the brown and white, and those candles are great.

  23. Happy Anniversary. I can well appreciate your issues of losing the links. Although that hasn't happened to me, it just took me forever to get my post up through Live Writer. I don't know what the problem was but it would say it was publishing, then a message that it didn't, but it was in a loop which I couldn't get out of so I had to shut down the computer each time. I think it took 6 or 7 tries - each time having to completely shut down the computer.

    Anyway, neat table. Different for you. Love those basket weave candles.

    Beach already??? Doesn't Memorial Day have to pass before we get to enjoying the beach? Oh yeah, you're retired. You just walk out the door and you're there.

    Hope you'll try to celebrate tomorrow.

  39. So cute! I love the patterns and the color schemed you used on this. Your inspiration pieces are quite unique and adoringly whimsical. Kinda funky! LOL! I am seeing so many outdoor tablescapes linked up today and cannot wait to get more time to go and check all of them out. I added one of my old favorites today from outdoors too. Hope you enjoy! I definitely do not have all of my eggs in one basket..they are scattered everywhere lately. LOL! Wishing you and your hubby a very happy anniversary!

  44. Every time I see your new finds I think how much fun it would be to go browsing with you. Or better yet, to live close enough to borrow all, which is most everything, I like. The salt and pepper shakers....what can I say?

  54. Thank you Kathleen for your lovely visit. The chandy came shining already from the shop, but before we hanged it, we dusted it with a clean cloth and with a small round brush from our Rainbow vaccum we buffed each part of it carefully, so while it's shining, we can always vaccum it, like dusting, unless for some strange reason it got greased, or something on it, which I don't know why it would! Have a great week. See you from my daughter Sofia's house next Wednesday.
