Rose Red and White

Join us in discovering the wonderful tablescapes shared on Susan's Blog for Tablescape Thursday. Click on the image above to go to her site. Thanks for all the visits on my blog and the wonderful comments! I appreciate each and every one!




I went to an antique school house mall last Friday with my sisters, I'm definately going to be setting the table with these very old but elegant rose bouquet patterned dishes. They're well loved, well used and have signs of wear... but I love them none the less. Hopefull in time I will be able to find more sets to add to my dishware collection. Happy Thursday Tablescapes! If you ever get a chance to get away to Washington, Louisiana ... I suggest you make time to spend a day perusing the fabulous shops at The Old Antique Schoolhouse Mall.
These dishes will be lovely with my Valentine's Day Setting or with my Christmas Dishes.
I decided to update my tablescape from last week. Removed a little bit of the clutter, moved the napkin beneath the salad bowl, took the silverware and put it away. I also added a new flower bouquet of bright yellow and white tulips. I love how these look together!

How fun to find vitage dishes. I love the tulips. I had a difficult time getting my perma link right this week, so I sure hope you can find me and stop by my blog for a visit.

I love the tulips, and such long stems. The ones I'm able to find have shorter stems and aren't nearly as pretty.

Lynda said...

I love that antique mall! It's been years since I've been, but I think my Mom would love an outing there the next time I'm home for a visit.

I love the beautiful plates!

We have shopped at that Antique Mall so many times. I have a number of things from there. One little oak piece we call the "Washington secretary". Yes, we name our furniture!

Love your find!

Your table is so pretty. The vase and tulips are very uplifting! The dishes are so pretty and the chargers help to complete your theme.

I've never seen that pattern (the one with roses) -- it's gorgeous.

I'll be back to enjoy your blog again.

You have a keen eye for lovely vintage items; those rose dishes are so special. They look awfully familiar to me. I am wondering if someone -- an aunt, a friend's mom -- had them. Hope I remember!

I still love those square bowls -- a lovely fresh take on a traditional shape!
