Once again it's the day of the week all us "dishaholics" love to see what everybody else is dishing out over on Susan's porch ....(between naps of course)!
In the words of The Beatles -- "Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter. Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear." But after that long winter....
....nothing says "SPRING" like daffodils!
Don't you just love it when the daffodils begin to bloom?
These plates were an eBay find last Spring.
Manufactured by Mikasa....I'm not quite sure how old they are.... from the 60's or 70's I'm guessing.
Napkins were purchased last spring as well -- either Tuesday Morning or Marshall's. All tied up with polka dotted ribbons.
I found these dinner plates at Kroger last year.
These charger/placemat/trays came from Nell Hill's online end of summer/early fall. They came in round or square -- but I just looked last week and they aren't being offered any longer.
My grandmother had real bamboo flatware that she used for breakfast. These are faux, but I still really love using them because they remind me of her. These came from Marshall's awhile back.
I found these green goblets at Goodwill around Christmas a couple of years ago. I've used them a lot -- I should look for more because they only had four -- I would love to find at least 2 more!
While I have daffodils blooming in my yard -- I thought I would leave them there because they look so cheerful. Since I didn't have time to stop by the market, I just used faux ones. I'll use these in a Spring wreath for my front door. They're in a black iron tealight holder I found in a Yankee Candle catalog a couple of months ago. Love that you can use it for tealights, flowers or both!
This was the table I set last year using these same plates after I first got them (and the daffodils were real ones)
Isn't it fun how just a few changes make a whole different look? Which do you prefer?
Be sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps On the Porch" if you love seeing lots of pretty dishes and tablescapes. I look foward to the inspiration I find there week after week!
