Tablescape Thursday




Time once again to thank Susan and check out all the beautiful dishes,  etc on this  65th Tablecape  Thursday. So run on over to Between Naps on the Porch for the list of tablescapers.








Time has been my enemy lately and so I offer you a very simple but colorful tablescape this week.

The chargers came from  Target purchased on our last vacation.

The dinner plate and salad plate came from Wal Mart about 7 years ago as did the glasses.

The leaf plates were just recently purchased and to be honest, I can’t remember where.

Oh Dear, they say the memory is the first thing to go.

The Give Thanks centerpiece was from T J Maxx , and the leaf charger under it, I made several years ago.

This tablescape was on the Kitchen table, which we were going to sell and replace with the more formal round table, but my sweet husband agreed to make the living room into a combination living and dining room, so we will not be selling this table and will be redoing and rearranging the living room.  I am excited to see the finished product, although I will need later to purchase another China  Cabinet.

Happy Tablescape Thursday.




Wow! You did a beautiful job! I love your leaf plates and especially the pinecones. I try to hide pinecones in all my floral arrangements through out the house.Your centerpiece looks glittery. Is it? What a wonderful contrast. I have heard many people talk about TJ MAXX but I have never been there myself. I think I may need to stop by this weekend. Thanks for sharing! -April

This is really pretty. The leaf charger under the "Give Thanks" really jumped out at me. You did a wonderful job making it.

Lovely 'scape! I like the little touches like the napkin tied with the ribbon and a leaf inserted. The Walmart plates with the leaves on them are so perfect for this season!

So pretty -- I love your pheasant too (I have the cousins on my table this week) -- everything looks very Thanksgiving beautiful at your table.
