This has been one busy day. I posted about my
WLYS Contest HERE
When I realized it was time for Tablescape Thursday and our Summer School class at Alphabe-Thur
(Rainbow colors) this week RED
I challenged myself to do a tablescape in about 30 minutes!
I only used Red and White!
I decided the breakfast room would be the easiest
The placemats are kitchen towels folded in half
Then I used a large red plate as a charger
Next a white ironstone plate and to that I
added a Red coffee mug with hearts
I love these mugs!
Vintage juice pitcher and glasses
Fiesta sugar bowl, salt & pepper
Milk glass vase with red carnation design was bought
in a Montreal thrift shop while on vacation
I used red handled silverware, red napkins and
white animal napkin rings (a pig and rooster)
each place setting has its own cat creamer
Everything on this table was bought at a thrift or yard sale
(I think I need to move the kettle grill not such
a pretty view out the window)
I also wanted to share some REDS from the
WLYS from the last two years
I got this set of wood canisters (marked Japan)
This nice family was selling some things from Grandma's Estate
I bought several items and enjoyed this really lovely family
This is the only one that meets the red theme
I fell in love with this pitcher and six juice glasses
This dealer had lots of gorgeous vintage things and
at really decent prices. I paid $20 for this set
This very cute little vase is only 5" tall
I saw it in Mentone, Alabama just sitting in an
open case. I picked it up and looked, the seller said $10
I kept looking and went to other booths, came back by and picked it up again he said $7, I kept looking. He was on his cell phone and looked at me and held up his hand $5 I motioned back $2, he went to $4, I kept going $2 and I heard him say this lady is killing me, lol, but he sold it to me for $2!
That is what the WLYS is all about to me!
I am linking up with these fun parties
