Hello and welcome to my TABLESCAPE
you all probably know by now
Thursday tablescape is hosted by
the one and only Ms.Susan @

And Thrifty Thursday is hosted by
Ms Leigh @

I am mixing the two again this week
because they fit.

Today,I am having an imaginary
breakfast for just little ole me.
I started out with my finds from
last week-end.Yes,I snuck out again.
I have been seeing all these lovely
lacey plates.In love with them,I
was determined to find some,
at my price.I DID!And it's from
Pier one.Yipeee. You don't know
I did the happy dance?DH thought
well this is it!She's gone batty.
I snatched that plate up so fast,
I got dizzy.I couldn't find but
one,but I'll keep looking.
I also found this Mikasa salad
plate.Isn't it lovely?I actually
found two of these.I tried it on
first my crocheted doily.Then later
on my lace plate mat.I tried it with
my little crystal glasses and my
lavender goblet.
I have used
my flatware with my other
name on it.It is Kenwood
by Rogers. My name was May.
See my M?
I know it's not Spring,but I crave
it so much.For a little while,here,it is
I also found Mr.bunny here.He
willingly agree to have an imaginary
breakfast with me.Anything as long
as he can stay.
I also found the little tulip candle
holder and even lit it.Awwwwwwww.
See my pretty little hen butter dish?
Ain't she cute?And my first piece of
chintz.Oh,it will not be the last.Remem-
ber,I paid $5.oo on Ebay?No one overbid
My little hen teapot is another find
awhile back.She's Fitz and Floyd.I paid
$5.00 for her also.My demitasse little cup?
Of course a thrift find,a few years ago.I
have the set and the little gold spoons
that go with it.
And of course for my tablecloth,I used
some pink fabric,you know it.I got a bag full
from a thrifty store for pennies.
I;m sure you recognize the napkin
holders,garage sale.and the napkins?
Brand new,Pennys,still with tags,yep,
thrift store.

Thank you so very much for

smiling face.Now----------------

lets go see Leigh and Susan.

Pretty! You did get some great bargains.

You can't go wrong with pretty plates and chickens on your table. I love your butter would look great with my chicken collection!!!! Hahaha....I love your table!

Keetha said...

There are several of us in the "circle" that Leigh is creating with her Thrifty Thursdays who LOVE china - - -and we have a propensity for PINK and DELICATE.

Fun to meet you too!!!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Ann, this is just so pretty, and with thrifty items too! This just looks so feminine and lovely. I'd love having breakfast here. laurie

KBeau said...

I love those lacy plates. I actually found a set of four of them several years ago, each one a little different, but I forgot where I found them. Not Pier 1.

Thanks for commenting on my blog entry, even though I did do the wrong link. I did do a tablescape, and I've since posted another link.

I guess I'm getting old!

Oh, and I love your blog background. Did you create it yourself? That occupied most of my day yesterday. I was trying to figure out how to make my own background. Actually got it figured out this morning, but I'm sure I'll tweak it some.

Envoy-ette said...

What a sweet sweet table! Lace, chickens, rabbits, soft colors! Makes me think of spring!

Chari said...

Hey Girlfriend...

Ann, this tablescape is just gorgeous...I'm loving all of the pretty Spring pastels!!! I love, love, love that new lace's so pretty and perfect with your beautiful pink rose dishes!!! the pretty lacy placemat too...I'd love to have some of those!!!

Girl, I just adore that pretty lavender goblet!!! I need some of those...don't know what I would put them with...but it's so pretty! Hehe!!!

Love all of your surrounding "pretties" did a fabulous job with this "breakfast for one" tablescape...but you shouldn't have gone to all the trouble just for little ol' me...what's for breakfast anyway? hehe!!!

Love ya, Sweetie! Thanks for stopping by...your sweet comments always make my day!!!


Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Very delicate and eye pleasing tablescape. Let's all meet at Pier1, okay? :)


Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

I'm going straight to my local Pier One to see if I can find those lacey plates. Love em, I do.
Good job!

KBeau said...

Thanks for stopping by again. I see now that your background is a Rose Haven design. I had just finished visiting her blog and saw that she is giving away blog makeovers. Meanwhile, I going to continue tweaking what I've started and see where it goes.

Pug1 said...

Lovely tablescape, it's soooo springish! cheers Michele

Alisa Lucas-Brown said...

Hi Ann,
It so nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by my place today. Your sweet comments were so thoughtful. I love the pattern of your featured dishes today. I don't have too much with pink but it is one of my favorite colors. I live in a home with all guys so we don't usually pull out pink too often, much to my dismay. I've enjoyed visiting your site.

mbkatc230 said...

Oh Ann, I really love that lacey plate you found at Pier 1. You are such a great bargain hunter! Your table looks so pretty. I especially like the tulip candle holder, very different. Beautiful table. Kathy

Darlene said...

That is a great tablescape. Beautiful dishes and the bunny and chicken....too CUTE!

Belinda said...

Ann, this is such a pretty table used such a fun combination of things to pull it all together...I love the mix of china patterns, LOVE the flatware, and my eye is always drawn to pretty chintz pieces. Of course, now I'm also irresistibly drawn to the *lacy* plate! :-)

Tracy said...

Oh, that little chintz piece is so pretty! I really love your rooster pal too, looks like you had some nice friends over for breakfast!

Hmm... wonder if MY Pier 1 has got any of those lacy plates...

ellen b said...

Hi Ann! I really like your table. The plates are pretty and I really like the lace place mats. Happy TT!

Kathleen said...

How pretty! I love how you mixed so many thing..just lovely...That chintz plate really caught my eye!
Great table!

Susan said...

Running late this week visiting blogs....again...but I know you saved me a seat! We can sit and have dessert and gossip!
Hope you had a great Tablescape Thursday

jennifer said...

So pretty Ann! Looks like a ladies luncheon will be served any minute!

Cass said...

Sweet, sweet table, and it just sings of spring!
Thank you!

I am especially fond of the poultry. :-)

I've got a giveaway on my blog right case you would like to stop in and check it out. Thanks for sharing your creative tablescape today!

Glenda said...

Your napkin rings look like a perfect match for your china. That chicken butter dish is adorable. I like everything the way you have it displayed.

You made a wonderful thrifty find on your napkins since they still sported their original tags. Love your lacy plate and the doily you used as a placemat.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

I love your chicken butter dish,I guess that's what it is. Love those lacey plates also.Gotta get me some of those.Thanks for stopping by.

lvroftiques said...

How pretty Anniepoo! Can I join you? And do you have any of those donuts you were always bringing over to Glorias? Cause one would look just perfect on that darling little chintz plate *winks* Oh and I'll bring the vanilla creamer and we can have a nice little coffee clache? *winks* Love Vanna

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

Ann...this is beautiful...soooo makes me long for spring even more! You found some lovely your china and the lavendar glassware looks so Eastery and spring with the china. You crack me up with the "sneaking out" stuff! :-) I won't tell! Susan
