Spring Inspired Treasures
Happy Thursday tablescapers! Time to link up at Between Naps On The Porch with Susan. I'm sure everyone has been working very hard to create some beauty in dish land. With spring not to far off, we sure have plenty of inspiration.
I have also been inspired with some warm days to create another springy table. The green salad plates are a recent purchase from Ebay. They are marked, WM Hulme, Burslem England, pattern Maine. I don't know much about these but what I have found is this pattern at least came in one other color which is blue. If anyone knows more I would love to hear from you. I am on a hunt for 6 dinner plates.
To me this table is simple but elegant. I even managed to sneak in a chicken. See I am obsessed.
I just love the green and white together. These white plates of mine sure get the tablescaping mileage on my tables. I tried to start with a white base plate and add other colors and styles using salad plates till my collection grows. The rule is anything table related doesn't get to come home with me unless it can serve dual purposes.
I think silver chargers would be wonderful in this tablescape, don't you? I am currently kicking myself for not picking up any at the after Christmas sales.
The little hen soup tureen is courtesy of Ebay also. Are you noticing a theme here? It's turning to "Tables by Ebay" around here. I am really loving the hunt. Mixing and matching other pieces is a fun challenge for me.
Look at it all in it's "Ebay-ed" glory.
Last but not least is the last Ebay treasure on my table Oneida's Brooch pattern flatware. You will be seeing alot of these beauties, I just love the mix of mirror and frost on them.
Here is a close up of the salad plates. I just love them to pieces!
I tried to get a few candlelight shots. Still too dark. Photography is a complete mystery to me. I need professional help. In phototography to! He He He!
I hope you enjoyed peeking at my treasures. I know I enjoyed creating it and having you wonderful tablescapers visit me. Happy Thursday and enjoy your blog visits! Thank you so much for stopping by!
