I had to borrow items from all over the house to make this Tablescape. The Bistro sign is a TJ Maxx find ( it usually rests on top of my kitchen cabinets. The platter in the middle is Chris Madden from JC Penneys – I got it on sale for $50.00 ( which in my book is a HUGE purchase – but I just loved it and had to have it. It is super heavy and I can use it for O-so-many things ! (I look at it as an investment) JC Penneys has lots of other things to match, but they are very expensive.
The transferware (sp?) little plate is from TJ Maxx and was $2.99 – it normally sits on my kitchen countertop and I switch it out with the season – I think transferware is for the seasons in-between ! It is hard to see the cool urn (Oh –can you tell I LOVE BRONZE ??) which holds a plant (which will never die – love it )
The little glass butter server on top of the plates came from Ross. I love butter just as much as Paula Dean ! ( I can eat it right off the stick – I know some of you are thinking – YUCK !)
The little plates on top are appetizer plates from Harry and Davie –got them on clearance for a buck or two. Haven’t cleaned all the stickers off yet (gee wiz , I am busy – plus who’s gunna see..hee hee)
Chris Madden plates ( I love them but..they are light weight and I just got them from Santa and they are already chipping – Santa said he won’t buy me dishes again :o( …) I am thinking about keeping some aside for “good” and to quit using them everyday …. Oh, did you see my tablecloth ?? I got it at a thrift store for $2.99 !! It is very nice – don’t know what brand…. Oh and last but not least my “chargers” I stole from the wall ….are those antique replica ceiling tiles….I told you , I really need more stuff ! This was fun and if you would like to have some more fun please visit the Tablescape wonder herself – Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for hers as well as many other Tablescappers !!
