My UPS man, Mr. MB that is, has yet again turned another year older.....He's been busy, busy and I only get to see him for maybe an hour between jobs so I made a quick little lunch for us along with his favorite cupcakes.
I used my plain old white dishes. The salad plates are part of a set that my Granny gave me in my hope chest for my 16th birthday. Needless to say, after many years of moving around, I don't have a whole set any more. The amber color tumblers are also from my Granny. The square brown dishes are actually plastic. I think I got them at World Market during their going out of business sale. I think they were something like .50 a piece....so.....why not?
I got the napkins and rings from World Market too.
These bottles were Big Momma's (my husbands grandma). She was all of 6'2" tall and ran a boarding house for many years and could grow any and every vegetable you could think of and everyone called her Big Momma. I'm not sure what the bottles were used for but they are old and chipped. I like them like that....plenty of character :)
I had to throw in a splash of blue for color.
The cow cream and sugar holders are also from Big Momma's. Poor little creamer cow is missing part of it's tail.
Of course the birthday cupcakes. They won't last long.....not around here.
I've been seeing a lot of bloggers scrunching up fabrics and table runners so here's my try on it. If you remeber a while back I had purchased a whole box of fabric samples off Ebay and this was one of my fav's from the box. I wish there was enough to make some valances for the kitchen windows but not quite :(
I think creamer cow is asking for some cupcakes too. Didn't realize how funny it looks until I downloaded it on the computer :)
Hope you all enjoyed my tablescape this week. I'll be joining Ms. Susan at BNOTP for her Tablescape Thursday. Stop on over and check out some beautiful tabels.
Many blessings ya'll,
