Playing Tablescape with Blue Dishes

I have seen some very nice tablescapes in blogland and decided the other day to play with my "new" dishes... I added a little "whimsy" with my picnic ants...and they are "dressed for dinner.
I have mixed and matched my blues...what do you think??? I used a couple of tableclothes. The one on the bottom is lace, then the one Pearl gave me for my birthday and then one from a sale last week.



Maybe I'll set the table like this when Twyla gets here...I'm sure she'll be very hungry!!!

Now...what should I make for dinner???
Went to HQ today and picked up my check and was VERY SURPRISED... WOW...I have some "pin" money for the next few weeks. I didn't think I had that much out there for sale. It sure paid to have items in the yard.
Tomorrow Kailee and I will head out to some garage sales...and I'm pretty sure there are estate sales for Saturday!!! BUY,BUY, BUY....to SELL, SELL, SELL !!!
Happy Blogging!
Warmly,
Deb :)

Hi!! Sorry I haven't been a good blog buddy lately, not stopping by to visit, say hello or sharing any chocolate :) But, I have been busy as a little bee. . .getting ready for the sale next weekend. How come you didn't tell me there was SOOOO much work involved?? LOL I hope it turns out well for all of us :) Have a great weekend and think of me while your visiting garage sales, I don't think I am going to have time to get out there.

Talk to you soon,
Toni

Hi Deb, Your tablescape is gorgeous! Love the layering of tablecloths! Very pretty! And the blue and white dishes, now they just speak to my heart! :)

I haven't been online much this summer, with all that has been going on here. ...and when we stay at the lake, we have no internet. I dropped in at Pearl's (Paula's) and saw that she hasn't posted in quite awhile. I had hoped all was well with her, although I just had a feeling that it was not! I then saw where you mentioned she was very ill in a post further down. I left a message, but if you do "talk" with her, please relay that I am thinking of her and she is in my prayers! She is such a sweet, dear soul!

Hope all has been going well with you as well! hugs, Rhonda :)
