Red, white and blue!
Stars over you
Mama said, papa said
"I Love you"
We used to say that rhyme while jumping rope when I was small, lol. Sorry for getting side tracked. It just came to me after reading my title.
Hello Friends, let's dish!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I missed you last week. You know I am extremely busy when I don't join tablescape parties. We just got back from Atlanta last Wednesday, took me awhile to unpack and before even getting completely done, we left for Pensacola on Saturday to visit John's dad. We are back home and now I am very busy preparing for my reunion with 8 College friends, who are all arriving from all over US and Canada and one coming all the way from the Philippines. They are staying here and I have prepared an agenda for a whole week's activites. It will be very hectic but lots of fun for sure! So if I am not visiting, you know why.
Anyway, I was able to create this for Memorial Day before leaving for Pensacola.
I gathered some of my patriotic stuff from the garage and I had enough without going to the attic. I decided to use my vintage enamelware dishes. They are light and easy to handle.
I used my vintage lace placemats. I thought they look very Americana with the tin enameled dishes.
I bought the patriotic solid wood eggs from Lynne of http://www.networkedblogs.com/blog/lynnesgiftsfromtheheart last year. I finally got to use them. They would probably look better altogether in a big bowl but I wanted to use my red, white and blue tin pails. I added the air plants I bought from West Elm in Atlanta as a finishing touch.
The flag tray was on clearance, either on Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table, I can't remember. It's wood and it's quite large. I bought it last year.
Pewter always has a vintage look to me too so I used an S & P in that material.
Thank you for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits.
I am linking to these wonderful ladies and their fun memes. Thanks for all your dedicated work!
