THE BIRDS HAVE LANDED ON MY TABLE


If you haven't heard about Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, then I guess you are a new blogger, so let me be one of the first to welcome you to Blogville. If you want to see a lot of wonderful table settings, please click here to go to Between Naps on the Porch and get the links. You will be so glad you did.
Yesterday, when I spotted several bird's nests in a tree in my yard (see post below), I was inspired to do a bird tablescape. I know I promised ya'll last week that my tablescape would not be hodge podge this week. Well, my napkins and my tablecloth match!! That's probably a first for me! I've used this tablecloth before, and I've used these napkins before, but never together. I guess I just don't like to match things (another psychological problem that may require attention!)



Of course, my chargers don't match. That's because they were purchased from a gift store that was going out of business, and they only had a sample of each color. (But do you think that bothered me - the mismatched queen?-The only thing I saw was a sticker that said "half price"!)

My napkin rings have been purchased at various junk stores, estate sales, and yard sales, so they obviously don't match.


I've had these plates for about 30 years. I think they've been put in the dishwasher so much that I can no longer read the writing on the bottom! My flatware was our wedding selection 39 years ago, and I still love it. It is Old Master by Towle.



My bird salt and pepper shakers came from a junk store. I just love their fat little tummies.












The bird cage centerpiece includes bird ornaments that I will give to my guests as a favor.

Thank you so much for coming by to see my humble little tablescape. laurie
