Carousel Horse Cookie Jar

My friend showed me her Carousel Horse Cookie Jar and asked if I would like use it on a table. Of course I said yes.
I was looking forward to doing a cheerful table.
This is what I came up with.

From 2013-04-18 (by Eye-Fi)

I got the little elephants at a TS for $1.00, as you can see the darker one needed some TLC. The balloons are from a variety store. I'm happy
that I had everything else.

I used a gift bag for the larger place mats I really like the colors. The green place mats, napkins and pink salad plates are from CTS.The cute napkin rings were on sale at Pier One. Flat ware and glasses were TS purchases, the green depression ware custard cups I've had for a long time.

Nana...glad I kept scrolling down to see your pics.
You certainly did create a cheerful table.
The Carousel Cookie Jar makes a perfect CP and really sets the stage for this fun table. I never would have thought to use gift bags for place mats...such a clever idea and they look great and pick up all the colors you used. Now with those $1 elephants and balloons ... I'd be waiting for the 'Greatest Show On Earth' to begin!!
Glad I got to see this...and Yes...it would be fun to see again in July!

Thanks Jane, I'm glad you kept scrolling too.
I contacted GW and they couldn't help, they suggested I re edit and post the pictures again that way. After losing them once I was afraid to try editing again.
My friend Janice has the neatest things and I'm so glad she let's me use them.
It's funny when I started this table I wasn't sure how it would look. then It seemed to tell me what to do..no I wasn't drinking LOL

Nana...I've had that problem with Photobucket...espec
after editing - it can be so frustrating..
Sounds like your friend is a great source to 'shop her home' !!
Whether you were drinking or not (lol)...I can see you had fun .
Janice's Carousel Horse - was a great starting point to work around and the fact that you had those cute elephants (which not everyone has)..and the colorful
dishes and accessories created a real festive theme.

Nana, this is a bright, beautiful table. Love the carousel horse and everything you added to go with. The elephants are sweet. Vaseline dishes and those pink polka dot plates may me go awe!!!

Keep up the good work, Nana.

What a fun table. I love the use of bright colors and the gift bag idea is one to steal. Thank you.

RE: Carousel Horse Cookie Jar

What a wonderful table! So cheerful and bright. Tho must admit, I am seriously envious of that carousel horse cookie jar!! I have a life-size C. horse in my livingroom, and a small collection of special figurines of them (all PJ's models of real carousel horses made long ago).
I'm so glad I got to see the photos!

That blasted 'new' Photobucket just really stinks. I totally HATE what they've done to the site!!!!!!
And I've read Pinterest is going to get 'improved'. Its fine now, I love it. I can't see why these people have to change things, and especially if no one wants it.
Off my soapbox.

hugs, Karen

RE: Carousel Horse Cookie Jar

Thanks so much everyone.
Jane, I'm glad you kept scrolling down too. I was afraid people would stop looking when they saw the first part of the post.
I know people are having trouble with photo bucket.
I think the problem I had is with GW, because I use Eye-Fi.
Thanks, Jeanne, can you hear the Calliope?
Punk, I forgot the little green dishes were Vaseline glass.
Fun, thank you.
Karen, I remember seeing your Carousel Horses. I'm glad you got to see the pics too. You can get on your soap box any time you need to vent.
Marlene, I'm so glad you are back and doing well.
Nana
