June Jottings…

Almost mid June, the pollen invasion continues.  Ready or not I have to get the cleaning done outside, it will be the big holiday before we know it!

My sister, who lives in TX, visited over Memorial Day.  I haven’t seen her in 3 years, so I was so happy to see her!  She only stayed for the day, other family obligations prevented her from staying longer.

I set the table in honor of her visit, first time in a long time I did a tablescape!


Red, white and blue braided mats, from Kohl’s years ago, red square plate from Pfaltzgraff when they had $ days, and yes, one whole dollar!  Salad plate from the thrift store, by Warren Kimble, napkins from Kohls, the same year as the mats.  Napkin ring .25 at Christmas Tree Shop a few years ago.  I got them in r, w, and blue.  For .25 who wouldn’t? Smile

The white flatware was from Horchow when they had a good sale.


A blue sundae dish from Pfaltzgraff holds some white mums, and a few roses from the garden.  The blue stemmed glassware is from Dansk, I’ve had them for ages!

This is the first year my New Dawn roses did well.  They finally climbed the arbor.  There are clematis on the arbor too!  They have to battle for territory.  I had planted 2, but only one survived.  I can’t find them around here, I had to get it on line.




I hope all of you are well!  I don’t spend much time at the computer these days.  I wish I could tell you it is because I have an exciting new career, but that would be a lie!  Smile

Thanks for stopping by!
