I haven't been doing many tablescapes this summer. I finally decided that if I went to my dish room and tried to put it back into some kind of order, maybe I would be more inspired. We brought in quite a bit of "stuff" from the in-law's house. Some we wanted, some were things that are old family items that we need to keep. They all ended up in my dish room and I couldn't see the table or the floor. This morning I cleaned the room and pulled out several sets of dishes that will be going into my garage sale next month. The set I used today is one I am going to sell, so I thought I'd use it one last time.
I decided a farm table needed to have a vintage look to it. The centerpiece is an old wooden bowl lined with a vintage dish towel. I added a few fresh veggies and look how pretty it is! Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do with that fresh okra? Our local Amish stand had it for sale and they talked me into it!
The plates are marked Fresh Vegetables by Tabletops Unlimited.
A vintage tablecloth of my mother's has that 50's kitchen look to it.
I love the stitching around the hem.
I picked a few gladioli (I looked it up) from the yard.
They are in an antique milk bottle from what was once a local dairy.
I love the fact that we even have the lid for the bottle.
A little tin windup bird seems to work with this table.
Of course we need a pitcher full of milk...
...and a vintage dish to hold our corn.
I am very late today in joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. I am still dragging my heels around here trying to find inspiration and ideas to write about and time to visit each of you. I thank each of you for continuing to visit and read the crazy things I come up with!
