Sweet Finds and Pink Gingham

With the holiday over, it calls for a new tablescape in the sunroom.  I recently paid a visit to a favorite consignment shop.  I only bought two items, one of those being this pink and white gingham tablecloth. It was $7.99.  I chose a green dinner plate (Gibson), salad plate (Festival), and the wine glasses, I've had for many years.  I kept things really simple with small white napkins I made from a fabric remnant, used with silver napkin rings from GW. The sherbert glasses belonged to my MIL.  The candle holders were purchased probably in the eighties.  I found them going through bins preparing for my yard sale. I like the turquoise and the tulip shape. I think the items work together pretty well.  The plate stand with cloche is one I made from Restore finds more than a year ago.  I placed a single pink hydrangea under the cloche.  Pink and green are the colors I normally use in the sun room, so this table works well.

The other item I found is being used in the breakfast room.  It's a green crate, and was also $7.99.

I placed a scrap of burlap inside the box along with an arrangement I found at GW.  I haven't been to GW since I retired.  I think it's about time for a little trip.  

I added an old bowl to the box for contrast.

I would love to see what you have changed or bought recently.  Join in these great parties and show off your stuff!
