Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

I love absolutely everything about this tablescape, Laurie...especially those Lunéville plates! I haven't seen those before! So frenchy!...hugs...Debbie

Laurie, this table would start off the day with joy. Love the theme! Your Luneville dinner plates are delightful. I've never seen this pattern. Of course I like that it is blue and white. '-) All the cow pieces make me smile. I bought the little farm animal chalk boards too. Need to set a table to use them. I think they are adorable.
My blog isn't updating on sidebars, but I have a new post up featuring my garden. Stop by for a stroll.

Oh man Laurie, would you please come here and make me breakfast? Of course I'd have to have a wonderful table like that too! It's so full of life. I love it!

Oh Laurie, this is so beautiful. I love it, and your little cow figures are just the cutest. You always inspire me with your beautiful settings. Hugs, Marty

It would be easy to rise & shine with that table waiting for someone! The blue and white French farm girl plates are stunning! The lilacs in the little pig vase is darling too. But I really love that cross stitch runner on the table. It's a pretty little table for two.

Drats, I was too late for breakfast!! I really would have loved to see all these pretty things first hand. The plates are gorgeous, especially in blue and white. The runner is beautiful too. Just beautiful. xo marlis

What a pretty themed table, Laurie. You coordinate everything so well. What I really love is the pretty runner that you set the table with. Is that from an estate sale, too?

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

Of course I love this table as I love blue and white dishes. The animal chalk signs are too cute.

Happy May my friend.

I ♥♥♥ those pretty! I knew the King's Crown came in blue, but never had seen it...beautiful shade...I used the same pattern this week and called them small wines!
The runner is beautiful, lots of hours put into it, too.
Have a great week, Laurie...

Suzy said...

Just beautiful, Laurie! I could linger over my morning coffee waaaaay too long at such a pretty table.

A pretty spot for breakfast/brunch or just a cup of coffee.
Have a great weekend.

What a wonderful breakfast table!
I am hoping I get some lilac blooms this year, they haven't been doing well.
