Lady Bugs and Chickens

I am back home to Natchez but I left a table set in the breakfast nook in the FL home. I am still limited in tableware there but I can create a simple table. The black and white plates were left by the sellers. I brought the flatware from our MS home. I bought the tumblers from TJ Maxx in the Tampa Bay area and bought the goblets from the Dollar store.
 

I bought the vase with a flower from Ross and the chickens from OneKing'sLane (or is it Joss and Main?) The black iron candle holder and red candle were left by the sellers. The sellers also left this counter high dining set for us. All the linens were brought from our home in Natchez.
 This is my favorite place for drinking coffee and blogging during the day. At night I do my blogging in the bedroom because this is so visible from outside and it freaks me out thinking that someone is watching me, lol. The window has no curtains and I really do not want to cover it.
 I used 2 placemats with ladybugs as runners, also brought from Natchez home.

 I have been admiring those white wooden plate chargers for a long time but they were too pricey for me. Before I left for Florida, Pier 1 had them on sale so I bought them and had them delivered directly to FL, since I have enough white plate chargers here. This is also another reason I wanted to create a tablescape before I left, I wanted to use them.
 I did not have any napkins to match (I never thought I would ever say that, lol! Note to myself: Bring different colors of napkins next time I go to FL which is next month) so I folded matching placemats to use as napkins.
 I could have cut some fresh flowers from outside but I was leaving that morning so I thought the faux will work better.

 Strawberry S & P shakers brought from MS, originally bought from Ross.



 The cheap glasses even match.


Thanks for stopping by. A special thanks to our dedicated hostesses! I appreciate you all very much.
