A beautiful day at the lake. I feel like I am caught up on some of the projects that I am working on. I didn't say finished - just caught up. I have watched and admired the posts from Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Back Porch. So today I will post my first tablescape.
I am taking a break. I made some ice tea and I have 2 books. One I should read and one I want to read and probably will. It was too hot to bake but the bakery at Hannaford's had done a fine job for me. The strawberries are delicious but I will most likely focus on the cookies! I will save the strawberries for my cereal in the morning. The blogging book will be for later. Crazy Ladies by Michael Lee West of Designs by Gollum will be started.
The banded ring glassware works beautifully with Fiesta but I don't have any of that - yet. It would be perfect at the cabin.
I used a quilt for the table topper. I made this quilt a few years back from feed sack fabric squares I bought at a quilt show in Amish country. It is a variation on a nine patch. I have some more of those squares and need to make another quilt for the cabin.
The little pitcher with the birds was a find at a second hand store and really picks up the colors of the quilt. I sifted through a box of silver at Deb's Flowerbed Farm and after a little polishing (some elbow grease involved) I was pleased with the results. When I downsized I got rid of a lot of the silverplate and now wish I had kept it.
The teaspoon is dated 1903 and the napkin is monogrammed with A. My middle name is Annah so that worked.
