Oh What Tuesday Brings

Tablescape Tuesday

little greenery, and candles (.15cent candle holder 🙂 )

vintage 1950’s cocktail rooster napkins…
lovely aren’t they?

family monogrammed silver spoons and china

a little fluff of decorations

place atop a hand painted cozy tray…
and a special spot for
two has been created!

pure simplicity…
if cloches are for special things…then why not my guests?

white china…
the staple…
adding silver gold white and greens.

Trash to Treasure Tuesday
not silver…but it has an allure

can’t beat the price….but it is in terrible shape…
get the price down to 1.00…
and prepare my paint brushes…
i am feeling weathered white, with bits of cream…
some hidden copper and reds…
i wa
nt history…
i want a story of time…

swirls and swirls of color…
allowing the pattern to show through…
layer upon layer…
creating decades of time…
years of use…
the new lo
ok comes to light….
i am pleased….
and now it finds a new home….

topping off an old vintage heater…
making an excellent side table
for a room which is undergoi
ng some wonderful design changes!See the side bar for information regarding:
Tablescape Tuesday and Trash To Treasure Tuesday!

What a joy t
his season has been 🙂
The Muse and her D
iva’s Hammer will return “after” Christmas !
May each of you have a most joyous Holiday
