What a cozy setting for breakfast. I love the blue. Blue's are the new green for 2009. I will be moving more & more into the blues. I love the toaster. I wish my hubby cared about dinnerware. Then I would have to explain why I want more. LOL I don't really have to explain. Just lovely my friend!!

Ann, What a pretty blue tablescape. So soothing and inviting. Love that toile tablecloth, and what luck with the napkins. That toaster is amazing! Susan has started a "run" on sugar scuttles! I received one as a wedding gift 39 years ago, and had never used it until I saw Susan's! Yours is so pretty. laurie

Ma'dame French said...

Love all the blue truly pretty;) French

LADY JANES' EMPORIUM said...

First I will rant and rave about the toaster...love it...what a conversation piece,and without it we would not have been able to have such a lovely breakfast! Thanks...great post!

mbkatc230 said...

I LOVE fiesta ware, and this table is gorgeous. But that toaster is just amazing! What a find, your hubby should be thrilled with it, it's such a great piece.

Glenda said...

I am so uninformed that I didn't even know Fiesta made toasters. I thought they were just into brightly colored china. Did they also make the flatware? It is a perfect match to the china.
Whoever made it, "you" set up a beautiful table. DH has good taste.

Diane said...

Great post Ann! I'm in love with that beautiful tablecloth! Hmmm, where did you say you keep that toaster??? ♥ Diane

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Beautiful tablescape, Ann.

Oh my, I must have a sugar scuttle yes I must!!! Going to go look around as soon as possible!

ann said...

Yes,Glenda,the flatware here is Fiesta and we have a waffle iron too thats fiesta.Excuse me,I mean my dh has a Fiesta waffle iron.haha...Ann

Liz said...

I WANT that sugar scuttle! I have been looking for a pretty one like that. Very pretty table.

~Liz

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Your table looks beautiful set with all your bargains! I love the yellow and blue together!

auction girl vintage said...

Fabulous blue Fiestaware, it's so great that your hubby collects something you both enjoy! I love the scuttle, too, was it designed for sugar? It looks like it's meant for pouring sauces, but it wouldn't hold enough to pour. I think it would make a great spooner!

Does your husband have a gravy boat in the HL Wheat pattern? I bought one a few months ago to sell in my eBay store, and honestly don't remember whether I've sold it or if it's still on the shelf waiting to be listed.

Have a great week!

Beautiful tablescape Ann.

I have always loved Fiestaware...and especially this soothing blue. Love your beautiful scuttle..and dh's toaster is very cool! :-) L~

Kristen said...

How neat to have a toaster to match!

jeanne said...

Hello Ann, I love your tablescape in blue and white. Your thrifty buys are terrific. Those lovely napkins for just $3.00 is great. I love the blue fiesta ware too. I once had peach and gave it away. What was I thinking? The toaster is the kicker. Awesome.

Hugs...Jeanne

nikkicrumpet said...

Anything that is setting on blue and yellow toile is going to look AWESOME! And your tablescape does!

Oh and about your dog comment...which really made me laugh hard. I'm going to have to take a video of them when I dress them...no one's going to believe it...but they actually like it. They wag their tails and fight each other to be first getting dressed...it's actually pretty funny! And believe it or not...they will leave even the hats on for as long as I'll let them....they are kinda freaky that way. Thanks so much for coming by.

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Ann...this is beautiful! I love your sweeties Fiesta ware in that pretty soft blue...and the toile tablecloth is perfect! You even have matching flatware...you rock! :-) The toaster is just adorable! And you know I'm loving your sugar scuttle! :-) Great tablescape! Thanks for sharing it this TT! Susan

Fifi Flowers said...

Love the yellow and blue tablescape!

ksarra said...

Girl, I love Fiestaware too, I even love the WalMart fiesta-looking dishes that they sold a few years ago, I get soooo excited when I find a piece at a garage sale.

The Muse said...

your table cloth is oooo la la !
and i must say i love the blending of the blue hues....bringing them all together takes a bit of effort...but you have done it so nicely!!

Miss Janice said...

Well, it seems we all are featuring our sugar scuttles lately! Love that blue Fiestaware with the blue toile--gret choice! Fiestaware is so versatile:-) Love your tablescape.
