Three MEME’s !

I have put three MeMe’s together for this week…. Tea Time Tuesday hosted by Barb at http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/ I am not sure if I am going to be able to link this week as my blogger doesn’t like Barb’s site….I love it – so please check her out…. The second MeMe is hosted by Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/  the official day is Thursday and there are tons of posts so check her out too ! The final MeMe is hosted by Rhonda at http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/ – please check in on her and see what fabulous treasures everyone has found….

My Tea and Tablescape was set up on my back patio…I guess I needed to do the patio since Barb’s last Porch and Patio Party I could not participate because the weather was not behaving….. It was simply gorgeous today so, I decided to have my “tea” outside. I have a very simple patio with very causal table and chairs….I wanted to dress up the chairs so I covered them with tablecloths that were turned inside out (it is amazing that they are just as beautiful on the inside in all creams)  The tablecloth on top and ironstone coffee/tea pot and silver tray are also from the thrift store.outdoor tablesetting 258

Do you spot the cookies on the table – they are real…can you believe ! Let it be of record that Kammy put food on the table, lol !

Love my “new to me” dishes…From the second hand store…They are Mikasa Brywood. They had dozens of all the dishes EXCEPT dinner plates – which they only had three…..Everything was half price the day I went (so I had to get them) I got 3 dinner plates, 4 lunch, 4 snack, 4 saucers and 4 coffee cups…. Since I only had 3 dinner plates I used two for the table setting and one to set the ironstone coffee pot on….outdoor tablesetting 287

I am using my lavender glasses I scored at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago.

I remember those lavender glasses you shared a couple weeks ago, and now I'm loving that flatware! I don't remember ever seeing purple flatware before. What a pretty table setting!

Ohhh...I love the pretty lavender stemware...gorgeous!!! What a pretty colored blue tablecloth...it really showcases your new dishes beautifully!!! Girl, what a great idea you had about covering the chairs with tablecloths...I love that idea! You've just set a very beautiful table...I'd love to come dine with you...bet the outdoor scenery is fabulous!!!

Thank you so much for coming by and leaving the sweetest note on my tablescape!!! Girl, you just made my day with your sweet, sweet comments!!! I sure do appreciate it!!!

Kammy,
Thanks for popping by. Love your table!! Covering the chairs with tablecloths was very clever! The china pattern is adorable (hope you find some more of those dinner plates!). I like the punch of purple especially!

Blessings,

P.S. My word verification word for your blog is "nogmen"--thought that was hilarious! They are so amusing sometimes!
