LAST TABLESCAPE BEFORE I PUT AWAY THE GARDEN TOOLS


On Thursdays, links to great tablescapes can be found at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH. Thank you Susan.


Time to put away the watering cans and flower pots.








IT'S FALL Y'ALL!
(WELL, ALMOST)

I had a terrible time getting my photos to load to Blogger today. I'm thinking Blogger doesn't much like me lately. Last night, I lost my "header" (well, that was probably my fault), and now I can't find it anywhere! Several of the blogs listed in my blog roll have suddenly become "feeds". When I click on the blog name in my blog roll, it takes me to that blog's feed rather than to the blog. I've tried deleting a blog and re-adding it to my blog roll with no luck. Does anyone out there know what I can do?
Don't forget to go get links at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks so much for coming to visit me today. laurie

Hi Laurie, I just love your tablescape today it is so cheerful... I'll be over in a few for lunch. Lol I have no clue what’s going on with your blogger. Hopefully it will fix itself tomorrow...Have a great day my friend!

Pretty dishes and table. Sorry but I am clueless how to help you with the blog. I can't see all the photos some days on peoples blogs and not sure what that is about or how to correct it either. Blogger can make me scream at times too:)

Laurie, this is a wonderful table. Love the dishes and the cute watering can napkin rings. I didn't get a tablescape posted this week. Just too much going on and away from home. Hope to have one next week. I'm working on an idea.
Have a great Labor Day weekend. ~ Sarah

Oh Laurie, I love this pretty tablescape. I love the colors, the dishes and all the other accessory pieces you use. You always give me such creative inspiration to look at. Wish I could help with blogger. Mine all went away a while back and then a few hours later it was all back again. I don't understand. Hugs, Marty

xinex said...

Laurie, you have the nicest collection of plates. Love those garden and water can dishes and accessories, esp. the napkin holders. Love the placemats too. Beautifully put together all around. I wish I could help you with the blog problem...Christine

Denise said...

Lovely table setting, I love daisies :) they always make me smile.

Hello Miz Laurie,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment! I love your tablescape! How pretty your dishes look in those wicker chargers. I especially love your little watering can napkin rings, totally adorable! Beautiful table!

Well, Laurie, I'm a gardener. So you know I love your tablescape! I'm getting ready to put together a little fairy garden in a big old bucket, and I shall have to remember some of this post. As for Blogger, I write my posts on Windows Live Writer off-line, then upload to Blogger when I have it like I want it. So much easier. If you Google it you can take a look at it and also get a free download. Works great for me!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

What a pretty garden look! I checked with my boss - she got those plates about 4 years ago at a gift shop in Williamsburg - she thought she would be able to find some on the internet today - but couldn't :( -- guess there's always eBay!

Cathy said...

I am going to miss these darling dishes!!! Your table is beautiful!!!

I can't wait to see what is in store for us this fall!!! I know it will be gorgeous!!!

Enjoy!!!
XOXO
Cathy

The Kramer Angle said...

Another inspiring table scape! You are seriously talented!

Sue said...

Laurie, I've never seen these dishes- they are so sweet and adorable. I love that you did a gardening theme, with the tools and watering can. Just so cute. I hope you get your situation corrected. My issue is trying to get through Reader and marking posts read after I've actually been to the blog. Google tells me it can't mark it as read, then puts me in a "hold" position. Weird. Consequently I have over 300 subscription and follower posts to go through. AAAHHHH...... guess I should use the "next" button and try it... who knows? :-)
hugs, Sue

Our really empty nest said...

Laurie, Those are the cutest dishes I have ever seen! Love you tablescape, and sorry I have no clue what i am doing here in blogland! Good Luck! Sue

carolinajewel said...

Cute dishes and I love the napkin rings. You are so right, Fall is here, no matter what the calendar says. After Labor Day, my decorations will come out! :D Jewel

ceekay said...

Your last summer table is adorable. Those dishes are sooo cute. You know blogger - give it a day and it should be better...frustrating, I Know!!

Tootsie said...

this is just adorable!!! I love it ...yep...that's all I can say...love it!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Laurie,
You never run out of cute ideas and fabulous china! Those are the cutest napkin rings I have ever seen and the dishes are gorgeous! I would love to see your china cupboard or hutch, in fact I would pay to see it! hehe. You know a couple weeks ago blogger even put a lock on my blog, oooh I was not too happy. Well, I filled out the little thingy and things got fixed. It seems sometimes if you just wait a day or two things fix themselves. Good luck and Happy Labor Day Weekend to you. Hugs, Cindy

LillyB said...

Hey sister! I love this tablescape! I am so looking forward to Fall!
You have the best ideas and I always look forward to your blog!
Have a great weekend!!
Love Lilly

Melissa Miller said...

Laurie your summer tablescape is so fresh and pretty! Love the garden tools and your dishes.

I'm not too sure about how to help with Blogger and computer issues. I'm so sorry. I hope it all gets fixed quickly. Not to add more to it but I can only see half of your yellow display background. Oops! I have no idea why that is but I have noticed it here before.

I hope you try the apple pancake very soon. It is awesome!

Have a blessed Holiday weekend.
~Warmly, Melissa ;)

It doubled my comment so I deleted it. Oops, sorry. ;)

Sue said...

Hi Laurie....great table. I love the little watering can napkin rings...and the dishes are great...

Connie said...

Yes, I would love to see the inside of the schoolhouse.
It's usually quiet around there and with all the trees it's hard to tell if anyone is even in there except at night.
I love your new header. What body of water is that ? Near you ? I also love your mosaics, also. They get better and better.
Can't tell you what's up with blogger. The last two hours I have been going back over my old posts as quite a few of them don't say they have been posted. I have a huge list now of "new" posts. Do you all get those too ? Don't like to think I have filled your mailboxes again.
Have a good night.

Dining Delight said...

Such a great 'scape!! Love the garden touches especially the napkin rings and little wheelbarrow as a centerpiece. Ahhh, sad to say bye to summer but fall is fun too!

santamaker said...

Hi Laurie!
What a sweet farewell to summer and gardening. Are you looking forward to fall? I am. I usually like to wait until the official first day of fall on the calender, but I'm sooo tempted to get started NOW !!
Hope you and yours are doing good.
Rose

Glenda/MidSouth said...

What a pretty table. Who would not enjoy sitting there. Have a happy & safe weekend. Great photo in your header.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Forgot to say - sorry no help on the blogger problem. Like the others said - wait a while and it just seems to straighten out.

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Laurie...those are the cutest dishes! I love all the darling treasures I see when I visit your blog. I soooo don't want summer to end. So glad you posted this beautiful summer tablescape! Susan

Chari said...

Hello Dearheart...

Ohh noo...so sorry that you are having problems with your blog! I haven't been experiencing any of these issues...so I'm not sure why and what is going on over at your place! Sure hope you can get it all figured out...it certainly can be frustrating! But I do have to tell you that I just love your new header photo...that's gorgeous, Laurie!!!

Well my friend, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this pretty garden table that you set! I was wondering where this is in your house? I don't recognize this beautiful room but it looks like the perfect place to dine!!! Girl, I've never seen these pretty dishes...are they new? I just love them...and I love the pretty centerpiece that you created to showcase the garden themed dishware!!! Ohhh...that little wooden wheelbarrow is just too cute! And...I love, love, LOVE the cute little watering can napkin rings...wherever did you find those? How perfect!!! Speaking of watering cans...I just love that big ol' watering can full of daisies...that's so beautiful!!! I know...as much as I love Autumn...it's still a little sad to have to put all of our summery things away! But I can't wait to see your fabulous home in all of its Autumn finery! I just know how you decorate, my friend...it'll be fabulous!!!

Thank you so much for coming by and taking a peek at my Ode to Summer tablescape and I loved reading your sweet note!!! You're the best, Girlfriend!!! Well Darlin'...it's going to be a busy weekend here at our place...we have kids this weekend and a big family reunion to go to on Sunday but I wanted to come by and wish you a Happy Labor Day weekend!!! Do ya'll have plans?

Love ya, Sweetie!

Lady Katherine said...

Laurie, I love these dishes, the napkins the water can, Now I adore the wicker/rattan placemats! Little pots filled with baby breath! I always adore your table! Please do not let blogger mess up here! lol I have enough trouble keeping it going sometimes. I would love to schedule post, but it never ever ever has posted them! Hope it all fixed soon! I know it can be so frustrating! Now come visit with us on the 25 of Sept. You know we would just love to have you!

SmilingSally said...

What a fun tablescape! I can see a lunch for a few garden party gals. I love the giant leaf placemats and the little tin watering can napkin holders. Please show us how you store all of your treasures.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am not sure what I love best! The wee watering can rings, the pretty napkins or the great leaf chargers. It looks fantastic!

The Painted Garden said...

Hi Laurie,

Oh - goodness - your garden tablescape is adorable.. . . your dishes are the cutest garden dishes . . . just precious. I love all of your garden things and the beautiful way you arrange your tables. You are a lovely and gifted lady.

Do you have some type of security on your computer? If not, that may be the reason that you are having problems with Blogger. You may have gotten a virus in your system. LOL - sounds like I know what I am talking about!

Thank you for visiting me and leaving comments. It means so much to me.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings,
Erin

susan said...

Laurie--I am late getting by! Your dishes are so cute. Sorry you are having blog problems. I keep wanting to try some new things and add some things, but am afraid I will lose what I've got--I think maybe if it ain't broke, don't fix it :) Well, I do see a header, so maybe your problems are fixed. Happy Labor Day to you and yours!

Bellamere Cottage said...

Sweet Laurie....

Oh how frustrating.....I don't know what happens, but I had a picture problem with Blogger for awhile too. I think it has a mind of its own.

Love your tablescape....and that darling little scalloped table in the background....oh yes...my eye caught that RIGHT away....

Have a wonderful weekend....

Big hugs,
Spencer :-)

Hi Laurie,

Sorry you're having blogger problems and I'm no help LOL! That's a beautiful tablescape and have a wonderful weekend!

salmagundi said...

I'm no help on blogger problems - my theory is just wait and hope it goes away (the Scarlett O'Hara theory!!). Enjoyed the tablescape - you always treat us with something new and different. Love it. Sally

nannykim at spindle cottage said...

Pretty and cheerful!!! Your home looks so inviting.

Melody said...

Hi Laurie,
I'm new to Tablescape Thursday. What a lovely blog, and, your blog is just too bloomin' pretty.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Hi sweet Laurie!

Oh how I love your table setting and your entire room that is peeking out in the background. Just so lovely and fresh looking.
Yes, fall is around the corner and I am looking forward to the cooler days.

Sending a hug to you and a thank you for your kind words left on my blog.

ginny said...

as usual, Laurie, the table is gorgeous! Wow! You have really blossomed into a professional table scaper! Loved it!

Kathleen said...

I am back!! It was very frustrating dealing with Hell, I mean Dell..:)

Adorable tablescape...never saw those dishes!

I have the watering can rings in white..for years..!

Love your green flatware too!

Come see my bargain from WSonoma outlet..dishy!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Hi, Laurie! I love this tablescape. You know how much I love to garden. I really did put my watering can away. We did fall clean up about a week ago. I am looking forward to fall. It's my favorite time of the year. I have so much catching up to do. I'll talk to you later.
Hugs, Terrie

Connie said...

I love the collage of your dishes. Also those little white flowers are so pretty. I think this one is my fav. of all of yours. You do good work !
My pic's of the couple are my grandkids. Matt is at the U of Alabama loving it. Megan is a HS Sophmore and doesn't stop growing. They were leaving that day to come back home.
She is taller than I am at 5'6'. She misses him so much as they are quite close. Katie their oldest sister is a year out of college, so my daughter is starting to see her house again.
Do your grandkids mind you posting their pictures ? I asked them early on and it was "Pleeeease don't". None of them read it anyway. I figure I am not posting names.?.

Have a nice weekend. Supposed to be gorgeous !
