Lunch at My Place

     After lunching downtown last week, I made my regular stroll into one of my favorite stores downtown Edwardsville, Beyond Timbuktu.  Near the entrance were several "bed spreads" made in India.  They are made of a very thin cotton and work well as a light tablecloth.  So . . . please enjoy my latest tablescape with the star of the table the cloth.

     I like the pattern of the dinner plate with this cloth.  This is one busy table.  I like the Lenox salad dishes with this look.  Never did I imagine purple water glasses and red wine glasses would look so pretty together.  This tablecloth seems to pull them together.

     The water pitcher was given to me by a friend who knows of my love of dishes. 

     These plates have an Italian flare but are made in China.  The wood chargers are the only chargers I own and they seem to work well with every setting.

     I bought this dining set along with other pieces of furniture that existed when purchasing this home.  It's a nice heavy French set.

     Next week my work friends and I will speed to my house (only five min. from work) and throw together a nice salad for lunch.  We all chip in and help prepare, eat fast, do a quick clean up and rush back.  We have an hour lunch and are able to get it done.  It's rushed, but we enjoy it.  I love serving my friends. 

     It's been a while since I've blogged but ready to jump back in.

     I am joining Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.  New size 125 tall

Happy 4th. of July! (I'm into it lately)

  2. Linda, your tablescape is wonderful. Love the colors and the textures. I'd love to find a set of nice wooden chargers because I agree that they would definitely go with most things.
    Thanks for stopping by HFTS to visit. Your comment is so thoughtful and definitely appreciated. You should just get on Dolly and ride the trail to TX. I'll have a lemon treat waiting. ;-)
    Fun to see you and your friends riding these beautiful animals. I haven't ridden since my youth, but one of my nieces is an avid horsewoman.
    Looks like you live in a beautiful spot. I'll be back for more visits here.......Sarah
