Set this table last week for National Lighthouse Day.

The plate rims have images of sailing ships on the ocean.
The napkin rings are mini life preservers.

The CP is a battery operated fountain that plays ocean sounds.

Literally everything on here is a thrift store treasure.

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

I love this table!!!
It reminds me of the song
'Sailing sailing over the ocean blue'
The little glass beads are like sunshine glistening on ripples in the water.
wonderful table for late summer.
Candy You have the best TS treasures and know exactly how to use them to create a perfect table.
yep, I'll be smiling all day thinking of this delightful table.

I wish more of our regulars come back to share a word or two.
Thank you for helping to keep the forum going. it would be really lonely here without you!!

Where did you look to find out about National light house day?
I looked on a few sites and couldn't find anything interesting to do for August.

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

Nana, there is a website that I find by googling: holidays, the month, and 2014.
I think it comes up as

It gives something for every day of each month.

It does seem as though you and I are the only ones posting much these days.
I know others have issues that are distracting, but few even visit, let alone, comment anymore. Maybe once summer is over, more will come back.

Lets hope so anyway.

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

thanks for the address, Candy.
I really hope more come back too.

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

I love the sailing themed table, Candy. The glass bubbles are a great addition and the life preservers as napkin rings are so clever.

I check this forum every week. I want to be more of a contributor, but access to my tableware has been problematic for a while as we have been making repairs to the house. I'm so tired of that process, but I know it has to be done. I hope the major tasks will be finished by Thanksgiving, but the process seems to move very slowly.

I really appreciate all of you who post here and enjoy your threads even if I don't comment on each of them. I'll try to do better about comments because I know it's disheartening to take the time to start a thread and garner no comments.

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

Fun, thank you! I'm sorry you are going through home repair issues, but glad you took the time to post.

So many people who used to post/comment are missing anymore, that it is disheartening.

It's kind of to the point that it feels like "nobody even looks or comments anymore, so why bother to post anything."

It means a lot that you took the time to comment.
Thank you,

Shut Up! All from Thrift Shops....How cute is this!
Love how you put this together using the 'glass bubbles' and the Napkin Rings are perfect! Great Ocean Water color scheme. The Tablecloth and placemats set off the Ships on the Water Plates nicely. I have to say that your CP is Coolest! I thought it just lit up, which is a nice effect, but Playes Sounds of the Ocean unique. Glad you found and brought it all home and created this fun table.
Thank You Candy...
I might not be on here as often as I'd like...but when I do pop in...I love and appreciate All you & Nana do...Always.
looking forward to when I have a home & my treasures back with me so I can join in again.

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

What a fun table. Especially like the dishes and napkin rings. Great job!

RE: National Lighthouse Day table

Oh Candy, this is such a beautiful setting. When I was
In CA we drove by a light house out on an island that was
So darn cute. You can stay there'. They come over and
Pick you up by boat.

The life preserver napkin rings r so cute. Everything is just
Perfect on this tablecloth for Nat'l Lighthouse Day.


RE: National Lighthouse Day table
