Today, I'm linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch, hosted by Susan.
You have now that you have come to my blog. I've never figured out which came first. Did I always like a mismatched look, or did I always have things that didn't match, and therefore decided I'd better like it that way? Either way, since everything in my house comes from a junk store, estate sale, or garage sale, it's a good thing I'm okay with a hodge podge of things that don't match. The way I shop, I'm seldom going to find a set of ANYTHING!
The metal flower napkin rings came from an estate sale.
There are eight napkin rings, but there are only two of each kind and color of flower. Hey! Maybe there is someone else who doesn't like for things to match.
The flower vase in the center of the table also came from my shopping trip with Lauralu and Susan. It was not in the same place where I found the salad plates, and it is not the same brand, but I thought I found something that matched something else I had bought! Oh! I just bought that little stand that is holding the flower vase at an estate sale today. I can't wait to tell you all about that sale.
(Lauralu, how do you think I did with my magic marker on his hat?) There were some chipped spots on the boy's hat, but I think I took care of that with my brown magic marker. Can you tell?I have once again raided my husband's work shop for tiles to use as coasters.
Okay, I said I don't like to match, so I think I've succeeded in my goal of non-matching items, and since almost everything on my table is unmatched floral, I am calling it a mixed bouquet tablescape.
Be sure to go to Between Naps on the Porch to see a lot of wonderful tablescapes that have matching dinnerware, etc.
