Hello and welcome.

Today of course is Thursday

time for another Tablescape

Thursday and Thrifty Thursday.

I am doing a double post

because I have mixed the new

with the many treasuresI have


Today both our lovely and sweet

hostess' will have many more

treasures and tablescapes for you

to see.Just drop in to

Susan's @

or Leigh's here @
I have also joined Thriftstore
Thursday.please gfab a link on
my side bar.

As you see I am using our
aqua Fiesta.Along with my
garage sale mother of pearl
napkin holders.They really
are a treasure.I am also
using my dollar store glasses.
The leaf shaped salad plates
I got a week or so ago,all six
for $3.00.I entended to paint
them and make them lettuce
plates.But I have used them as
is most every day since buying
them.We really enjoy them and
they feel so good in your hand.

The tablecloth was $2.00

it was new.I really like it.

I think we will get alot of use

out of it.My place mats,new,


This lone candle,I have had forever.
It is a feux,or I would've
have burned it long ago.ha

The humingbirds,I borrowed
from my bathroom.Matches perfectly
don't you think?
When Gollum used her

egg cups,I hadn't thought

of these in years.I thought

I'll never----------find them.

But I brought out my Easter

stuff.There they were.
The napkins look like they're

my favorite.I keep using them.

But most of mine are all

winter,dark colors.I'll have to

fix that won't I?
This is what I am most

excited about today.I found

this on Ebay.It quickly

reminded me of Gollum's

chunky flatware.Don't you

just love hers?
But these have their own

holder!It's a swan.The flatware

is his tail feathers.What!!!

See his bow tie.Have you ever?

The little salt and pepper

came off the shelf for Spring.

Isn't it just precious?
And again my little salt cellar.

I could not photograph my

new little toy to really show it off.

So these are the ones from Ebay.

Now,doesn't this remind

you of Gollums?

I like the way you can just sit it on the table.

Mary @ Boogieboard Cottage said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and for the nice comments. I love to take pictures, but I'm really just an amateur. I just take a lot of pictures of one thing from almost every possible angle during whatever time is the brightest natural daylight for that particular room. and what I love about digital cameras is you can delete what doesn't turn out! I love the turquoise (my favorite color) of your tablescape. Your swan flatware is so unique, I've never seen one of those! I remember the vintage candle stick from the 60's-so cool! I love the white leaf plates and glass bird egg holders too. Happy Easter. :O)

Linda said...

Your aqua items are so soothing to the eye....and the graceful it! Linda

Kammy said...

Oooooooo Aqua is my favorite color ! Nice job looks great ! Hugs ~ Kammy

Really Rainey said...

Ann... You flattered me so much I got flustered and giggled! Thank you my Dear... You are a good friend indeed and made my day!

I love the aqua/turquoise in your post! Besides purple I love that shade of blue... And that flatware... Its... its... well its incredible! I love things like that, different and unusual! I'm so happy you b brought out all your Easter stuff!

I hope you are feelin better!
Hugs, love and Light
