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!
You've heard of The Young and the Restless? And The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, the story of my life would have to be called The Dull and the Dutiful. No one would buy my autobiography, as I had a happy childhood, married a terrific man, and have two brilliant and delightful adult children and three adorable (and brilliant) grandchildren. Oh, and I have just retired from a long career in higher education!
