Sculptured Grape


Hooray! It's Tablescape Thursday time again, and today, the table is set very simply in the sunroom .




The pattern is Sculptured Grape from Poppytrail, which I chose for my every day dishes in 1974(eek!) when I got married. :)




The glasses are vintage Hazel Atlas, which luckily mimics the grape pattern in the dishes. :)


These goblets were a wedding gift. I didn't like them much at the time, but now I see them every where in antique shops. Indiana Blue Carnival Harvest Grape.





The sugar and creamer were a wedding gift from my sweet Aunt Ola. I think of her every time I use them. The napkins are some more "good stuff" I got from a friend when she sold her B&B.




(Yawn!)Hmmm......... Looks like a it's gonna be a nice, sunny day out there.




Time to relax with a good magazine. :)


Please see Between Naps on the Porch with Susan to see more beautiful tables.
Thanks for stopping by. I loved having ya! :)

Hi D,
Thank you for visiting my blog and following. I have enjoyed reading several of your posts and agree your granite Venetian Gold looks fantastic. I used it for two kitchens I designed recently. It is so rich looking and has great colors to work with. I also like your new red & white quilt; it pops on your bed. This Tablescape looks fresh and inviting and I like how you combined the Hazel Atlas glasses with your wedding goblets. The laces on the napkins is a nice touch. I will enjoy following you and look forward to getting to know you.

You really have a pretty pattern in Poppytrail. Your table is very coordinated with the grapes and vines. Hope you have a lovely day!

This is an old post, but I thought I'd share that this is was mother mother's informal china when she was first married! It's tucked away now, but she still talks fondly of it. :)
