St. Patrick's Blog Crawl





It is time once again to be wearin' the Green!


What better way then to set a lovely trayscape!

I love the yellows and greens of this plate stack!


The yellow plates with shamrocks are the inspiration!  Only .75 for three plates at a church sale.


The flatware was a goodwill find .20 a piece
The green swirl Boopie was .75 and the Irish Coffee was .59 both found at thrift stores

I really enjoy have a tray set for dinner!





Even on a tray you can create a pretty setting!

I'm joining Kathleen for her St. Patrick's Blog Crawl!  
Hope you will join in the fun!



Wishing You JOY,

Linda

Hi Linda,
What a pretty way to show off such a lovely setting...on a tray! Only you would think to do so stylishly.

I love those plates. they remind me of majolica. The glasses compliment everything so nicely.

Linda, what a pretty setting! The plates were sold at Sur la Table years ago, because my Mom bought two of them. How lucky for you to find them. They're just beautiful. Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Your trayscape is perfect and has all the pieces you need. I had not heard of boopsie glass before.

LInda, I agree about setting a pretty trayscape. This one is stellar. I'm loving those darling yellow plates with the basket weave borders sprinkled with shamrocks. What a fun find! Thanks for sharing and Happy St. Patrick's Day! ~ Sarah

Tricia said...

Lovely trayscape, Linda! I love that you also have those vintage deep green glasses. I adore mine! And those salad plates are darling -- I can see why you scooped them up!

Jemma said...

Linda,
Even though you are away from home you still create beauty and magic! I love your St. Patrick's post. Actually decorating with the smaller venue was very creative and smart-your shamrock plates are precious!

Hugs!

Old Fashioned Gal said...

Thanks so much for your very sweet comment, Linda! We are so overjoyed...I can not wait to kiss my little boy! I wanted to tell you that I have only found 1 cardinal piece for you...and it's tiny! I have a few places I'd like to try before I convince myself that someone has bought up all of the cardinal goodies!!!
I hope all is well with you! I hope you're enjoying your visit with your mother :)

I love the green and yellow and those salt & pepper shakers are so pretty. Any meal would taste better on your lovely tray Linda.

Love your trayscape, especially the shamrock plate...if I had been smart, that is what I should have done!
Hope you are enjoying time with your mother.

Lady Linda said...

Very fun~ this is something I'd like to plan ahead for next year. Poor St Pat's has taken a back seat this year with Easter so early.

'Tis a lovely tray, Linda! Perfect for a nice Irish dinner!
Hope you are feeling better, wish I could bring you a loaf of soda bread to have with a fine cup of tea!
