Kammy, you've set a very pleasant and pretty table with the Seaside Theme.
The soft colors are lovely.

Only saw the ocean a few times when I was growing up on the flat plans of western Kansas. When I did see the real thing, it was outstanding. Very soothing.

Marilyn said...

It's fun stopping for a quick visit. Love the great pictures. What kind of camera are you using? I'm thinking I'll need one soon since the dot (our girl) is leaving for a trip and wants her camera :( ... Are you finding these treasures in Fort Collins? If so, I'm heading over there when school is out!!!

Scribbler said...

I think I need to take you shopping with me!

I never seem to get quite this lucky...

Kathleen said...

If I see pretty dish towels I get them to cut into napkins. I know you want the basic white first..( I remembered from last week) but sometimes colorful towels are fun..just a little cut and hem!
Pretty table!

Hi Kammy,
Your seaside tablescape is lovely. You certainly did score on the flatware (I love it!) and the candlesticks. Your arrangement with the birds in the shell is too sweet!

I love your seaside tablescape, and the flatware is so pretty! I was looking at shells at Michael's the other day, and they seemed so high. I'm going to have to look in our dollar store and see if they have them.

Happy Tablescape Thurday!

Kammy, I love those dishes from Kohl's. I'm watching out for those but I found some potential ones at Target online so now I'm torn! ;-)

I love that table and you did a great job with your Dollar Tree additions. Lovely table, just lovely!

Fifi Flowers said...

LOVE the shells on the table... especially that starfish!

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

I love your beachy tablescape and your dishes. I just bought those same sand dollar dishes from Kohl's tonight. Plan on using them in a tablescape in a few weeks. Great minds think alike!!! Keep on having fun with your tablescapes. I love them!

Pearl Maple said...

You do know how to set a tablescape, lovely beachy theme.

Keep peeking at what everyone is doing with their table decorating and thinking it is about time i got over the moving and unpacked enough boxes for a little tea party.

Your out of the suitcase teaparty is delightful.

"Blossom" said...

Kammy, how you make me want to be at the beach already; this scape is so lovely. I love the arrangement in the shell and those
flatware pieces are to die for.
The dishes you purchased are awesome and I can't believe what they cost. I wish I had a beach house so I could copy for tablescape.

xinex said...

HI Kammy, your tablescape is so delightful and relaxing. The dishes are so pretty and you got great deals on everything which are all well put together. I just left FL but you make me feel like going back again....Christine

Lovely table scape. I love all the shell designs. You are ready for the beach. Thanks also for visiting my blog.

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Thanks for the link for the issues with Blogspot. When I was able to visit some blogs today, I saw that others seem to be experiencing the problem too so I deduced it wasn't just my computer...thank goodness!

The problem does seem to have improved for me this afternoon and evening. Leaving comments is still a sporadic problem but at least I have been able to read each blog I've tried to far. :)

Blondie's Journal said...

This is just so pretty, Kammy! I love all the dishes and the flatware is just my favorite! I love heavy flatware and what a deal!! The seashell decor is fabulous. You have done things with the jars and shells that I wouldn't have thought of and that is what makes TT so much fun!

I am late in making my TT rounds and still working at it!! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday weekend!! :-D
