New and Improved :)

Hello, sweet bloggers! Last week I posted my first tablescape, and two commenters suggested that for the next one, I just add to and tweak it somewhat. So that's what I did.


Remember last week's? Kinda plain and lacking, right? (I agree)







Well, I went back to T J Maxx and bought the matching cups. I also used the napkins that match the tablecloth. I think this set is so cute. I bought it from Retro-Redheads because I liked it so much on a post from Cynthia's Cottage Design. (Love her blog). I also added the utensils. (Hope I put everything in the right order hehehehe)








Much better, I think (hope :)




Strawberry tart anyone? I'm sure it would be delicious if it was real.





This red apron was a gift many years ago. I thought it matched quite nicely with this tablescape.







So here it is. Thanks SO much for stopping by. You don't know how much I appreciate it, being a new blogger and all. :) :) :)
Be sure and stop by Susan's at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ to see more beautiful tablescapes.

Hi, D ...

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment for me at my Southern Lagniappe blog. I'm so glad it led me to your "Sunny Side of the Sun Porch." It's always nice to meet another Mississippi blogger.

Your table scape is so pretty and cheerful -- perfect for a sun porch. I especially love the table cloth and those beautiful cherry napkins.

I'm so glad to know about you and will be back to visit again soon.

Sincerely,

Janie
