I did a little tablescape, just so I wouldn't miss out on the fun of Tablescape Tuesday, sponsored by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

Being the bargain hunter that I am, when I read that Linens N Things was going out of business, I started looking for bargains on their website. I found a set of china (because you know I needed more china) and immediately ordered it. I am using my new china in on this table. I suspect that this is a knock off of a more expensive pattern, but I am a bargain hunter, so if it's a bargain, I'm okay with faux china if I get a deal on it.

For my centerpiece, I used a boy carrying grapes. I know we are not supposed to make our guests have to look at one another around tall centerpieces, but I've never been able to make a low centerpiece make enough of a statement on my table, so my guests might have to just converse with the people to their right and left and not talk to the one across the table from them! Sorry, guests.

Each salad plate has a different kind of fruit on it. There are apples,


and pears.

The dinner plates all have the same little scene of a house.

One thing I like about this china is that there are so many different themes I can go with when I use them. They have leaves, fruits, flowers, houses, and greens (even though my camera makes the green look sort of blue), browns, reds, and golden colors. They may kind of remind you of my decorating (I can't make up my mind what I want to do, so it ends up being a hodge podge of things I like).


Kathy at Empty Nester tagged me. If you haven't seen her blog, you must go visit her and see all of her bright ideas. The instructions for the tag are:

1. Go to the the 4th folder where you keep your pictures on your computer. 2. Post the 4th picture in the folder.3. Explain the photo 4. Tag 4 fellow bloggers to join in the fun!

I told Kathy that I would decide whether or not to thank her after I followed the instructions. Boy, you got lucky Kathy! Thank you. (Actually, I got lucky!)

The fourth picture in my fourth folder is a picture of two of my granddaughters. Carly is 5 years old and Brayden is 2 years old. This picture was taken at Brayden's "Farm Girl" birthday party in November

Since it is Tuesday, I'll share the "tablescape" for the Farm Birthday party.

Do you think Brayden enjoyed her birthday cake?

I'd like to pass this tag on the following four great bloggers:

Ann at Life At Ann's Place;

Chari at Happy to Design;

Gloria at Happy to Be; and
Vanna at Delusions of Grandeur.

Thanks so much for coming by to see my tablescape. Be sure to go to Between Naps On the Porch, and link to all of the pretty tablescapes. laurie
P.S.: Does anyone know what happened to Nanette at A Tale of Magical Memories? I've been worried.
