Blue for DMIL
Since it was too hot to be outside this past weekend (as Candy said, we skirted with 100 degree temps) I spent some time organizing my dish collection. Amazing what one finds isn't it?! Dishes I had forgotten I even had. Of course I then had to do up a tablescape :)
As I was putting this table together I was thinking of my DMIL. She L.O.V.E s blue. She says she is trying to move away from blue, but we laugh because everything she purchases, from clothing to furniture, is still blue :)
The only items newly purchased for this table are the silver candlesticks, purchased at GW for $1.00 each and the faux bread 50% off at Hobby Lobby. Everything else I had in my stash. The dinner plates are Gibson every day, the salad plates were a GW find for .25 each. And yes, I know...I should have taken the time to iron the tablecloth but I was too hot to even think about standing over a hot ironing board LOL. I have a steamer on my Christmas wish list.
