IT'S SPRING AT MY HOUSE!!!

DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY 
HERE!!
CSN GIFT CODE AND MORE 
I have extended the entry period thru
Sunday March 6, midnight. 


THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT!!!

It is getting warmer and we have had 
a few beautiful days.


It was beautiful yesterday. I left for therapy early so I could go by GW. I have said before that our GW never has anything. I went anyway. 
As luck would have it I found this Longaberger look alike for on $1.00. Not quite the LB quality but really nice. For $1.00 it was going home with me.
I had planned to use this Irish runner buy decided to use it next week. Nice little basket, yes?

I like the way the handle curves

Sturdy for $1.00
I stopped at Kroger and picked up some Primrose for my centerpiece.  Bob came today bringing his free flowers, Pink Roses. That's when I decided to change what I had planned for the tablescape. I decided to use my Franciscan Desert Rose.

I used the pink roses and the primrose. 
I love these green and white placements. I think, in blog lingo, this is a vintage, chippy and shabby charger.
I added my vintage Franciscan Desert Rose dinner plate. I hate the new stuff they are selling. Won't buy it.

Pink salad plate

Forgot to get a pic of just the rimmed soup. Added linen and crochet, starched, napkin and yellow rose ring.

I love the Wallace sterling flatware, Waltz of Spring

Bob's free roses, forsythia and greenery from the yard.
I ended up using the primrose 

I have enough serving pieces to enjoy using them often, serving most anything. This would be a typical setting with family in the kitchen. I did a similar table with the same china for my daughter,
Kim, the last time she was in town.

Purchased votive holders during after Christmas sales.
The water goblets were a thrift store find. Pattern unknown. Only had four.

This is my favorite pic. I think I used it twice. That's OK, it's my fairytale.  Love the napkin rings, I got them from ebay. Ebay is gooooood.

relish dish was thrift store find
Bob thought this was a real rose. Our eyes are failing you know!

I just love the napkin rings. Did I say that before? The napkins are vintage. I think they go well with the charger.
I hope you have enjoyed my "Ode to Spring"

Gorgeous as always!!! Our pear trees are in full bloom too, and they made me feel very much like spring. I love the way you used the green check with those dishes.

And I'm coming to Savannah next week for shopping. I need to hit your thrift stores! Love those goblets.

I have enjoyed your Ode to Spring too...so very pretty!

Southerncook said...

Anytime I see someone using a tablesetting using the Desert Rose pattern and I am quick to take a look. I have all of my mother's Desert Rose with many serving pieces but I rarely use it. I should do a table with it soon. I thought your table was absolutely beautiful. Don't you just love those little rosebud S&P's. I think they are my favoirte of my own set.

Shelia said...

Hi Ginger! Oh, what a gorgeous table you've set! First that's a great knock off LB basket! Looks like a good sturdy one. I have those dishes too but I have some old and new pieces. But you're so right, the newer ones aren't the same.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your table really makes me feel like Spring is here. Unfortunately in my part of the country we have a bit longer to wait, but we can pretend.

Donnie said...

That is a lovely tablescape and your dishes a really pretty. Love when beautiful roses grace the center of the table.

Scribbler said...

This made me very nostalgic -- my mother had Desert Rose. I gave it to a cousin who had some (she won't buy the new stuff either), so she was happy to have Mama's. This makes me wish I had kept some! I have looked everywhere for pretty green placemats, and I love your gingham ones. Beautiful table.

Sharing Shadymont said...

So lovely! Spring is in the air at your place! Great tablescape.

Tricia said...

Ginger, that first photo of the whole table was such a delight! Those green and white placemats are SO pretty -- and unexpected -- with your pretty Desert Rose dishes. The whole table is SO inviting! Those roses did inspire a great tablescape!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love the vintage Desert Rose dishes but they are so pricey when I find them. One day I may own a few plates. Gorgeous table and beautiful roses! You really made it feel like Spring! hugs, Linda

What a gorgeous dining room ~ Im in love with your buffet. I wish mine could look as lovely, alas its usually covered with reclaimed items from the Flea Market that need to be polished then over to my store. So its a working room - oh well I will aspire:) Have a great weekend.

Ginger, your table is beautiful! I "heart" those napkin rings (I thought it was a real rose when I first saw it). The greens and pinks are so pretty together, and I love those chargers too. Thank you for linking this beautiful table to Favorite Things. (I also really like your chandelier in this room - I have a thing about chandeliers). laurie
