This is for Tablescape Thursday this will start tomorrow-September 3 -I am posting this a bit early
This is a little nook I like to eat at in the fall and winter. It is nice to sit by a fireplace. We have a split level and below this room is a gas run fire place and the warmth just rises to penetrate this area. I threw this setting together in a fast quickie so excuse the lack of better organization!
Don't look to closely at the things on the mantel--I didn't adjust them after our 1 year old grandson left (he was into everything and we had to move things!) The tablecloth is an old one that used to be my mother's. Oh and sorry about the imbalanced look on the teacup shelf--I was using the teapot that goes to the right of the clock. This is what happens when you quickly grab the camera for a spur of the moment photo shoot---yikers!
I know the plastic placemats are not the grooviest ;-) but we were having a marinara dish and I always resort to plastic when having tomato dishes with my son present! (any advice on this?)
I love these dishes--I used them tonight for salad. I found these on Ebay.
The hummel is an old one of my Mother-in-laws and it went through a house fire so it is not in the best of conditions--but I like it and associate memories with it. The flowers which are thrown in here are from my garden---but my cat eats them if I turn my back for one second (literally) ;-(
We did eat by candlelight and my hubby enjoys this as do we all.
Yup--I didn't iron the tablecloth---HEY this was literally thrown together in ten minutes so give me a break Ya'll. Ok , so this is NOT elegant...but at least it is cosy, right?
Ps. I was commenting on some of your blogs about why I couldn't link directly to my particular blog through your comment section while with others I could. I finally figured it out. In the settings for your comments you have to set it for anyone
