Thank you, Marigene!

This week's table features some pretty blue glasses that Marigene of In the Middle of Nowhere sent me as a gift.  I was very touched when she offered to send me some of these glasses after I admired them on her table!  I love the ribbed design and the soft shade of blue.  The pattern is called Sirrus Blue, by Libbey, and Marigene insists they are all over the place in her part of the country.

The glasses are great with my everyday dishes, Windsor Park (Mikasa - discontinued).  The placesetting also includes blue placemats (Walmart), orange napkins (Crate & Barrel), and my silver, Belvedere (Lunt).  I love using orange and blue together this time of year, especially.

We are in the kitchen again this week, and I've pulled the pumpkin bought at HEB back in early October in from the entryway table to serve as a centerpiece, along with a wreath of faux fall berries and pine cones.

Here's a look at the tabletop.

Here's a better look at the Windsor Park pattern.  I am still not tired of these bright colors!

 Here's the whole table. . .

 And a view toward the baker's rack.  Maybe you can spot the small Pilgrim couple I bought at a craft show many years ago?

Thank you again, Marigene!  You're a sweetie to send me these pretty glasses!  Thanks, too, to my visitors this week!  I hope you will leave a comment before you check out the rest of the tablescapes set for this Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!

  3. I love your blue glasses. I have a set of a similar color that I don't use nearly enough. This post makes me want to fix a pretty table with them.

    I wouldn't get tired of those dishes either. The colors are some of my favorites. Actually your whole table has one of my favorite color combinations with that shade of orange and blue.

    It's just lovely. Very much my cup of tea!

  34. Hi Tricia...

    Ohh my...you have managed to create another beautiful table, my friend! This Mikasa pattern is so pretty! It feels so English Country to me...and then when I started to look around your beautiful table...at your chairs, wallpaper, etc. I realized that your everyday china is just perfect! You have a gorgeous English Country dining room, my friend!!! Well, I must admit that I never think about pairing blue and orange together...not sure why...but it is really pretty together! Ohhh...and I love that sweet little orange pitcher! That was so very sweet of Marigene to send those pretty blue glasses to you! They are perfect with your china...such a beautiful shade of blue! I think the sweetest and most generous people live right here in Blogland!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful Thanksgiving table with us...I loved it! Best wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving, Tricia!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving...

  38. Tricia, Since blue is my favorite color, I just love this tablescape. What a joy to get to use those dishes every day. They are just beautiful. It is neat that you are able to move the pumpkin from another room and continue to use it so beautifully. Don't you just love pinecones? Thanks for another beautiful tablescape.
    Thanks for stopping by. I had been away so long I was not sure if anyone would visit.
    Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Ginger

  45. I love the round placemats! I have quilted round placemats with a scalloped edge on my site and those seem to be the most popular. The color goes so well with your dishes. Beautiful!

  46. Your crockery is so cute... with a very lively touch in it.. love your simple yet beautiful table settings... blue and orange make it perfect, both feel strange colour if you think of combining them, but you did it very smartly... great one ...
