In the Dining Room

Hello, everybody. It's hot and humid here.  Definitely time for cold watermelon.  I used my "watermelon" runner for inspiration for this tablescape.



My green Ebay picnic basket fit right in with the color scheme.


Here, I decided to use a pitcher of geraniums instead of the red coffee pot.
I'm joining the party at Susan's "Tablescape Thursday" today. Thanks, Susan.

I Love Ebay

tablescape ebay table
Hello wonderful friends! Whenever I see something I really love in a book or magazine, the first place I look is Ebay.

Ebay 022
I was able to find this green picnic basket and rooster egg cup to recreate this tablescape.

You know I LOVED this display in a store window, but the lady wouldn't sell me the "Laundry" linen.

Eureka! This is my latest I was so excited when I found this almost the same piece on Ebay.

Agree Shampoo
I was even able to find original Agree shampoo from the 70's
(I didn't pay 40 cents for it though heheheheh)

Home Sweet Home Coffee Mug
By the way, if anybody knows where I can find this mug, please let me know. Ebay let me down on this one.
