~LET"S DO LUNCH~

Hello !! Girls well here we are with the Last Tablescapes for the month of April...And Boy did we have some GREAT ones this month or what?? And let's don't forget the Queen of Tablescapes our very own QUEEN SUSAN"S " At Between naps on the porch"

Now the other day I was making a new vignettes for my table top...I don't know about you guys But I change out my Table top at least twice a month...I get tired of looking at the same thing...And of course I had just gotten these sweet Bunnies from Picket...and as I could not just hide them in the hutch I thought I would put them out to enjoy and they just seem so SPRINGY to me....( Now Len's idea of a table vignettes is his ball cap, truck keys, wallet and a sweat shirt tossed on the chair and what ever nails and screws he had in his pocket) Oh Girls there I go digressing again...So You seen my Bunnies and Ironstone in my last post Right...OK go look I'll wait... Oh You don't have to their right here....


Now these Bunnies I just love with all there pretty lace on them...The Big one I named Bill and the small one is Dot...YES IT"S DOT....Now so long as I was redoing my table I thought I would toss out some dishes and do a pretend I was having a Lunch...


Now I just love blue and white together...


And of course my Target Birds came back from their ROMAN Holiday and were ready to go back to work again...


These plates I got at Second Sunday Swap meet...they are Royal Stafford shire Tonquin Pattern...I got 4 of them for $5.00 plus the gal even tossed in a salad bowl just to get rid of me ha ha!!

Click here to see details





Now these I got at Ross the first of the year....I love the little flowers on them...

Now last Friday I was in Hospice and found these sweet little coffee mugs...these so reminds me of the Lace on my Bunnies...they were a quarter a piece...Water glasses from the Dollar tree...Love the Blue stems on them...Flatware from Wally World...White Ironstone coffee pot Hospice $3.50 , Lemons and flowers Dollar Tree



So girls there is my Blue and white with a POP of yellow tossed in...Now does this not look SPRINGY...Or do you want me to show you next week how Len does a table ha ha!! I am sure there are a few guys that would love it....


Now be sure and go see out Hostess Susan and see what real Tablescapes look like ...remember mine is just a prentend....




Now I wish to Thank all my new followers...I do love all my peeps and its so GREAT that you decided to follow me...Hope I don't get you lost ha ha!! And if I missed getting back to you...I am sorry but I am running as fast as these Old lady legs will carry me...On Friday I will show you a hint of what I have been trying to redo...girls I think I have bitten more than I can chew with my new redo...


Girls have you ever bought one thing and then had to redo a whole room around it...of course you have !!!




May all of you have a GREAT day...




Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Hello Gloria, what a sweetie in the side bar first of all. She is a real doll! I like your blue and white dishes and your table turned out cute. Who can resist little white bunnyies too? They are lovely. You have a lovely blog!

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Gloria...this is a gorgeous tablescape! I love all the blue and white...the plates are awesome and what a deal you got! I love the white chargers...I think Ross is fast becoming one of my fav spots to shop! You are gonna think I copied you in a future tablescape because when I was doing all that shopping at Dollar Tree for my tablescape, I bought those same glasses with the blue stems! :-) Great minds... :-) I love the sweet bunnies Miss Picket sent you...she is a love! Thanks for a great TT...you never disappoint!
Susan

marty39 said...

Gloria, I love the blue and white tablescape. Your plates and chargers are both stunning. What great finds. I think I need to shop and your hospice and you can shop at my GW, that would be the best of both worlds. Love the whole tablescape. Just gorgeous. Hugs,Marty

Michelle said...

The Royal Stafford is gorgeous...another of my weaknesses. There's just nothing like Royal Stafford!

Shelia said...

Oh, Gloria, how I love your table! The blue and white are my favorites! Love it all - the bunnies, the mugs and your coffee pot! And the lemons!
Now girl, are you up to something? You're about to change a whole room?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

Hi Dearest! This is just so cute. I was packing away my Spring/Easter but couldn't resist leaving out some bunnies. I love yours and the "lace" details. I heart those white plates. I keep seeing them at Marshall's and it's all I can do not to put them in my basket. Soon, very soon. :-)
I loved your table - thank you so much for sharing!! Hugs, Barb

Everything is so beautiful, I love your bunnies and birds, and all the Blue!
I read the story of the precious Angel Kyra! She is gorgeous!!! And yes, she is a miracle baby if you ask me. I know that God is good, she I'm sure is truly a blessing in your life!

Lori (All That Splatters) said...

I'm loving the blue & white motif. Really pretty!

Florida Sue said...

I really am enjoying your blog, and the blue and white just looks so crisp and pretty. Adore the bunnies. I am pretty sure that our husbands attended the same Tablescape school!

Can't wait to see your project. Table is pretty...I love blue and white!

Really Rainey said...

Blue and white... so pretty... I love those white plates with the flowers... I could make room for those at my house if I found them at Ross. I guess I should go into Ross more often. Very nice table!

Love, love, love your dishes...of course, you know I love that Tonquin pattern...and those pretty plates you got from Ross...sooo beautiful!

And of course, I love your little Bill & Dot...very appropriately named!!! That Dot was just the sweetest to get those for you!!! They just make the table...of course, you know how I love my bunnies!

I had to take the time today to stop and watch your Kyra slideshow! She's such an adorable angel! I do love babies and hope my kids give me many, MANY grandbabies! LOL! Love the dishes and bunnies too. Have a great day today!

Lovely table setting....

I love Royal Stafford. :-)

Have a beautiful day.

Betty said...

It is very lovely. I love the blue and white and the yellow with it. I love your bunnies too.
It is a full time job for me sometimes trying to keep my two Kens tablescape from taking over!
Have a great day.

Candy said...

I'll be right over!
Wonderful table with those popping blue mats and cheery splash of yellow.
Cheers,

Smilingsal said...

I do love cobalt blue with white and a touch of bright yellow.

Fieldstone said...

Dear Happy to Be! I, too, love the look of blue and white together. What an inspirational tablescape you've created. And to think it's on a budget! Love Dot and Bill!!! I can hardly wait to see your decorating project. Yes, I know all about the domino effect where one things leads to another until you've totally transformed a room that you hadn't intended to. I also know about decorating blocks--talk to me about choosing a paint color! Hugs to my best Gloria, Pam

Southerncook said...

Love your blue and white table setting and the splash of yellow makes it pop. Gorgeous.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Nifty neat-o, Gloria! Love this SO much! :-) If I have posted forgive me, but I'm posting again. LOL! And Dot did great with those cute, cute bunnies. Just darling on your table with all of your other pretty finds. We're twins with our Target birds. :-)

XO,

Sheila

Jill said...

Hi Gloria....

How are you??? Love the blue and white tablescape...
Have a great weekend.

Blondie's Journal said...

Gloria,

I really like this tablescape!! What a bargain you got on those plates and glasses! I am a big fan of blue & white and you tied it all together so nicely with the yellow flowers.

You are so funny about Len. My husband comes home from work and instead of dumping it all on the table, I find a tie on a door knob, a jacket over a chair...it's like he is shedding his skin!!

Have a wonderful day sweetheart! :-D

xoxo
Jane

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

I'm constantly amazed by the things you find at Hospice and the Dollar Tree! How come I never come across pretty stuff like that for so cheap? It ain't fair!

Ooh, can't wait to see what your redo is!!!!

Justine :o )

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

Beautiful table, Gloria. I love the blue and white, and especially that everything was a bargain.

Lady Katherine said...

Hello Gloria! I hope all is well with Kyra! I do love the chargers and the plates! The blue and yellow is lovely! What great deals! I bought new dishes, well lots of them. Now making shelves and redoing the dining room in a French Country look, I tried to go formal, but I just went with things I love, which is anything old. The Ironstone pot is wonderful! Take me shopping with you! I have not driven in almost4 years, I ran away from home this week, I was gone 3 hours. I road the back roads for 30 miles and went visit my old two buddies and came home with lots of flowers! I going back, for they have the old time kind. I going to get window boxes and fill them. I doing better, computer does not help my muscles,so I been off trying to strethch them by building shelves and painting. My getting hurt has set me back and I go to Doc, Tues May 5 to see if we start all my 4-6 surgeries for this year. I am hoping for a little more time, to get some things done. I getting sheep this weekend! I told hubby I would wait until after this year of surgery, but got a great deal on the sheep and can watch them from the window! Hubby just will have more to do, but I will be so Happy! Those cups are wonderful with the bunnies! Missed you!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Your table is so pretty, Gloria.

I can't wait to hear about what you've been up to!!

Janie's World said...

Such a pretty blue and white table. I love your little bunnies and the blue placemats match perfect!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, you are just so fun! Your tablescape is wonderful and those plates for $5!!! Wow!!! You know how I love a bargain, and those were a beautiful bargain! Love the description of Lyn's tablescape. The lemons are the perfect touch of yellow on this table. laurie

imjacobsmom said...

So fresh for spring! And you know how I love those bunnies. I think that is was awfully sweet of you to name them Bill and Dot! I am wishing that I had a Ross nearby. I feel cheated. It seems all of the good stuff comes from either a Ross or the Hobby Lobby. ~ Robyn

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Gloria, I just noticed that you have THE Target birds! Boy I feel so out of it, I don't have the birds or a cloche, I think my blogger's card is going to be revoked!
Thanks for the supreme compliment. Being compared to Nikki is the ultimate. That girl cracks me up!
Hugs, Bridget

Tootsie said...

I had that blog dress all ready to go...and chickened out!!! I think I used it on my awards or gargen photos blog instead...lol

Gloria you are such a sweetie, but when you said you were going to hospice I got worried for a minute, then remembered it was a thrift store that you were talking about, hope you have good luck, cant wait to see what you find! HAve a super nice weekend! The hubs is away so I am having a girls night tonite, should be fun! Sue

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Gloria, Oops!!!!
I'm sooo sorry my friend. Time has really gotten away from me this week...

I can't believe I almost missed this gorgeous tablescape you created. It's so fresh and pretty with the Whites and pops of Yellow. LOVE the new White plates from Ross. Lovely! The delicate lace cups are a perfect match to the bunnies.
