My Love is like a red, red tulip..table

I couldn't find a poem to match my tablescape, so I wrote one...:) (apologies to Robbie Burns)

Photobucket

Your love is like a red, red tulip,
I found at Michael's, really cheap.. ( 9 cents)
I sorely wanted live ones,
But the price was way too steep!

Photobucket

The plates and bowls from Horchow
By way of TJMAXX,
The swirly candles so pretty..
Of course they're made of wax!

Photobucket


The inspiration from the placemat,
From Pier One and made of felt..
On sale for a dollar fifty,
That's not a lot of gelt!

Photobucket

Those pretty heart shape dishes
A bread plate with no dents..
I think I bought a boat load
Each was 40 cents..

Photobucket

Lions head bowl with the tulips.
Is a covered soup tureen ..
It is made in France by Apilco,
At a price that was supreme! ($13)

Photobucket

Wine stems are from Pfaltzgraff
Flutes by Luminarc..
Napkin rings from Dollar Tree
Where it's always hard to park. :)

Photobucket

Deep red cloth is underneath,
Snowy white on top,
I think I am about finished,
You're begging me to stop! :)

Kathleen..
I saw this and commented on your blog last night.
I must comment again and tell you how impressed I am by your 'Multi Talents'!
I love this table and all its lovely details, from the Centerpiece...stemware, layered tablecloth and napkins..and those DISHES!
You are an amazing shopper and I would love 'hanging out' with you for a day. I'd allow you to drag me around to all
your 'Shopping Haunts'...and I'd be your happy 'shop-along slave' !

By the way...I'm waiting eagerly, for your first published book of 'Kathleen's Poems' !!

Oh, Kathleen, your tables are always such a joy to see, and you're a poet, too! What multi-talented people we have here on this forum! Those red heart placemats were such a great find . . . they're wonderful! And I love your dishes and napkins and tulips . . . oh my! That arrangement looks incredibly pretty and fresh.

Thank you Wanda, and welcome..Hope you will join in the fun!

Gardener, the poem was a joke...many of the bloggers pick a poem to go with their tables, so I thought I would have some fun with them..and thanks..

Jane, I think we would have a great time shopping..you know it has to be a BARGAIN or we pass it by!

Thanks, Lynn...I hope you are feeling better!

LOVE IT!
A perfect balance of color.
The placemats are adorable , the plates divine and the tablecloth/matching napkins fabulous.

Wow! Kathleen, you excel at both poetry and tablescapes! Very talented lady you are! So much to like about the setting - the placemats are perfect, as are the napkins, the plates (Oh, my), the flowers, and I love your frilly beeswax tapers - did you make them yourself?

The cutwork white tablecloth over red is very subtle but sooo effective. TFS you are truly inspiring.

Funny poem and beautiful table. I love the dishes and the placemats. I know what you mean about the real flowers, I adore them, but very seldom buy any.

It amazes me that the Spammers will search out one of our old posts so they can add their link to it! LOL

Oh well, it was nice seeing Kathleen's pretty red/white table again--and her original poem! LOL
