Between Naps on The Porch blogger, Susan, hosts a table setting theme event each Thursday. I finally got enough time to put my table together in honor of Independence Day.
A quick flower and flag arrangement in my milk glass vase. My mother gave me the beautiful, unmarked, teapot. I use my trio of Jamestown picture shot glasses for tea light candle holders. The look of weathered metal in the tin molds seems like Americana to me.
A splash of red in the middle to tie it all together. A friend gave me the blue tea towel in the corner.
I have had this china set since I was newly married, 18 years ago. I have been completely captivated by it ever since. One time I found the coffee service to match but it was on a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska and it was unthinkable for me to spend the money on shipping, let alone the cost of the service. Wow! How I wish I had spent the $80. I will find it again I think.
We left the house and someone didn’t see the cat escape the downstairs! The Big Fuzz is fairly new to us and came with some bad manners, namely getting into the highest spot possible. Apparently he is very patriotic. Back downstairs, Big Fuzz.
