Our breakfast room is difficult to photograph in the best of circumstances, but my camera broke, and I am using my daughter’s camera. My camera and I had learned to get along with one another, but I haven’t developed much of a relationship with my daughter’s camera, so please excuse the pictures.
The yellow plaid placemats were still in the package when I bought them at a yard sale years ago. I have again used my black and white polka dot melamine plates (Moda Home) that I bought at Tuesday Morning.
On top of that, I’ve used an orange and white polka dot salad plate (Bistro Collection by Amici) and a white leaf-shaped salad bowl (Clay Art).
I used my metal jack-o-lantern napkin rings to hold the black and white polka dot napkins. I used a mixture of orange and black handled flatware.
See what I’m talking about? This salt cellar and pepper shaker, and the little sauce server are orange pumpkins. My daughter’s camera made them look like pink tomatoes. I know—I’m the one who set the settings on the camera, but I’m tellin’ ya, this camera is not my friend. I bought this little set at an antique store years ago. The only mark is a “made in Germany” stamp.
Witches (with even bigger bums and beer bellies too-I don’t know why those brooms don’t collapse under their weight) fly along the border of the tablecloth, which I’ve probably had for about ten years.
At one end of the table, I’ve used some more Halloween décor. The vintage looking black cat is a reproduction, gifted to me by my friend, Susie. I have a tiny lamp behind him, and when it’s on, the cat face lights up. I couldn’t take a picture with the light on (because this camera is not my friend).
