On a warm and humid night
The lighthouse blinked a message,
With its beam of blinding light.
Now what could be so urgent
That bloggers need to know?
I'm passing on the info,
Don't kill the messenger, though! :)
And so, as it is a beautiful day for the beach or boating, I present a little nautical table.
I started with a cotton quilted sail boat throw, over a white cloth.
Blue placemat, red charger from PB, blue dinner, nautical salad, and boat bowl. Bowl from CTS, salads via Pfaltzgraff. com Each has a different design.
A little buoy from CTS holds the napkins.
Flatware from HG.
Little fish butter plates from the Tablescaper.
Glassware from Dansk.
Whale salt and peppers from CTS.
The centerpiece are twin lighthouse votive holders, a top a life preserver and scallop shells I collected from down the street.
I hope you enjoyed my Nautical Table. Here , the boats will stay in the water till October, and people will enjoy the water and beaches that surround us here on the Island.
My tip is, if you have an idea for a table, no matter the season, go for it! It is always summer or winter somewhere.
It is always nice to see something different when everyone is posting Halloween, a refreshing change. No rules! :)
I am linking to Stone Gable's , Tidbits, Tips and Tutorials, with that earth shattering pearl of wisdom! :)
It will be summer a few more weeks here at CK's, so don't put away your flip flops yet!
I found this crabby soap at CTS, it looks happy it is still summer! :)
Have some dessert!
I had some fresh whole cherries and apples left from a cake I made. I mixed them with some sugar and cinnamon and put them in a small skillet baking dish.
I topped it with a mixture of ricotta, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, and topped it with some crumbs made with flour, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
Bake till the crumbs are nice and brown.
It was delicious! The whole cherries bursting in your mouth with the apples, cheese and crumb mixture was a winner.
Here is the same idea made as a cake. No cherries, just apples.
Make a yellow cake, let it bake till it is firm enough to hold the sweetened sliced apples. Spread on the cheese mixture, then top with crumbs and bake in a spring form pan.
It was moist and delicious. Apples, cheese and crumbs with a little cake, what's not to like?
I am so glad you stopped by, I always appreciate hearing from you!
