I have a brand new camera, a Canon Rebel EOS T1i the two lens.  I just got it 2 days ago and these are my first pictures.  I hope I will improve with time and study, but for now I am happy with my efforts.

You have seen the place mats, napkins, silverware and two of the crystal glasses before,  the third one is a hock wine glass from Waterford.  The beautiful dishes and ducks to match came from Home Goods, the pink Potpourri was purchased by my DH for this table as were the flower petals.
Hope you have a great Thursday.

Pretty plates and have fun with your new camera.

Mimi said...

Anyone that knows me, knows pink is my least favorite color...but...your table is gorgeous! The more I see pink, the more I think I need to rethink my least favorite color...

Beth said...

I love the vase filled with potpourri and the plates. Very, very professional looking. Your tablescapes - all, not just today's - are amongst the best I've seen....and I surf the web a lot...LOL
Blessings - Beth

Hi my friend, I've missed our visits. Love you pink table! I've been helping get settled in our new shop. My hubby and I are up in the mountains now visiting our favorite Inn. I brought my computer so that I could visit my friends. I need one more follower and then I will be having a drawing with all my followers. Should be soon.

Still love you blog.

Beautiful pictures, Barbara. Aren't new cameras fun!

I love your precious little ducks. They're perfect with those elegant plates.

jeanne said...

Barbara, this is so beautiful. where do you keep all the dishes you have? I have very little room for storage. I hate that but I guess it is a blessing in disguise. My kids do not want my dishes. Smile.

The pink all looks lovely and spring like. The ducks are a great accent. Those dishes are stunning.

I commented on your sweet goats. Love that post.

Have a happy day.
Hugs, Jeanne

jeanne said...

I forgot to mention that your photos are wonderful. Best wishes and great photos with your new camera.
Hugs, Jeanne, again

Enjoyed all the pictures, so very pretty. I also liked the ducks. You did a good job of taking those pictures with the new camera.

Tara said...


This is the most gorgeous table I have seen! Love the square plates! Csn I pull up a chair? Haha!

My daughter would love your table today as she is our queen of pink. Enjoy your new camera and take lots of pics. This last week I have forgotten mine on three very great blog-worthy occasions and have been so upset each time. Carry your camera always!

Just lovely. I love all of your wonderful pink and those dishes are just wonderful. Your tall vase filled with rose petals is just stunning. What a perfect centerpiece. All of your accessories are soooooooo pretty. Beautiful tablescape. Hugs, Marty

Denise Marie said...

very nice...gotta love the goose.

paperbutterfly said...

I love how you inspire me. I am thinking my dishes need to come out of hiding and have some play time on the diningroom table!
I feel a touch of spring in the air when I see your tablescape!
How sweet the little kids are. I am starting out as a doula (birth coach) and I am moved at every birth. What a miracle God has given us! Babies: whatever kind of "kids" they are.

Mary said...

How gorgeous is this! You are already doing a fantastic job with your new camra. You'll be scary in a couple of months :-). Have a fabulous day.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love HomeGoods and I only get to go when I'm on vacation (maybe that's a good thing)! I love the dishes and your centerpiece is stunning. This is wonderful.

Hi sweetie!

I have never been one much for "pink", but I have fallen in love with the duck (even the pink in her) :) Beautiful table setting...but, in a house full of men, I think my men (even the dog) would think I had lost my mind. LOL

Thanks for joining me in our HUGE vintage Yaya give-a-way and posting it on your blog!


Patriotic Mom said...
