Tablescape Thursday and Plucky Blog Give Away








Tablescape Thursday is here again and I'm participating with all the other ladies and our hostess Susan on BetweenNapsOnThePorch. I love blue, white and yellow, so this week I mixed a few different patterns to pull together a sweet little table. I got the pretty Blueberry dishes from a little flea market shop in Breaux Bridge and the Harvest Hay Blue and White dishes were from T.J. Maxx. I recently found the little salt and pepper dishes at Where Pigs Fly ...another flea market shop in Lafayette. Found the glasses at an Estate Sale in Lafayette while shopping with my baby sis Deborah. Click on the Thursday Tablescapes Image on the right side bar of my blog to see all the other participants this week.

I'm also having my first ever Blog Give Away... The pretty little Tea Pot, Sugar Canister and Tea Cups pictured above, along with the aqua tea towels and an assortment of delicous teas will be sent to the winner which will be chosen randomly on May 5th. Please post your comment to this Thursday Tablescape and Plucky Blog Give Away post. Please make sure your email address is attached to your comment. The winner must have a valid U.S. or Canadian address. I will contact the winner for mailing information after May 5th when the announcement will be made. Please feel free to blog and share about my give away! Drop a note to me if you do, I'd love to see your blogs!
I used digital scrapbooking supplies by Shabby Miss Jenn to feature the pretty Tea Set! You can see her shoppe HERE!

Oh I really love the blue and white and yellow. I have a bush of whatever that beautiful yellow plant you used for your centerpiece. I'm embarrassed I've been mowing around it for years and still don't know the name :0)
Lovely table Katy!

Hi Katy,
I love the blue and yellow together, so very pretty. and when I saw your wonderful Giveaway I almost fell over. I has seen that teapot with all of the coordinating pieces at our Marshall's but passed on them. When I got home I was kicking myself for not getting them and the next day they were gone. Please count me in for this awesome Giveaway.
Happy Tablescape Thursday,
Tam

Hey, I can follow directions. My email address is kathybeaumont@bellsouth.net

I do love the blue and white combination. The forsythia is so pretty in the galvanized watering can. My forsythia is not in the right location for me to enjoy it. I think I'm going to have to move it for a better view.

Are you a digital scrapbooker? I am hooked on it.

Oh, how pretty! Blue and yellow is such a classic combination, and that beautiful forsythia is the perfect complement to your lovely dishes. Did you get the watering can at TJMaxx? I have one, too. :)

I love the blue and yellow together, very pretty! The watering can of forsythia is such a great idea. It makes me see some of my own things in a whole new light. Great inspiration! As for the giveaway, as soon as I saw it was a tea set, I was hooked! It's precious!
