Here it is without the brown placemats. I think I like it better, but may be too early for it. What are your thoughts? I am usually a "more layers win me over" kinda gal, but I do like both.
I love the way the embossment plays well with one another.....old and new, friends at last.
Speaking of old, these lovely vintage embroidered napkins were a gift from a dear friend and true "Southern Lady," Suzette. How well the green leaves in the basket of flowers go with these stoneware plates and how well the brown cross trim ties in with the brown of the placemats! The (daily) flatware is wrapped up and hiding inside the napkins.
The centerpiece is bird-themed (big surprise there) and sits on my very favorite antique cream lace doilie....making another blend of old-meets-new and new-that-wantstabe-old.
Matching bowls are waiting on the baker's rack nearby - ready to be filled with some hot & yummy comfort!
And we can't forget the teacups..............the best part of any tablescape! These creamy lovelies and matching bread plates were an estate sale score and have been waiting to come out and play!
Heading on over to BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday!
