Hand Painted Pretties On The Table

These are some more of the lovely items I recently bought from sweet Paula in Missouri!  Be sure and see the post here for more information about her gorgeous shop!  My husband and I were looking over the items I posted about in the last post, and so I decided to get everything out and put it on the dining room table.  Won't you have a seat and maybe I can get us a bite to nibble on while we chat.

I have a number of items that I've found over the last year that I added to the table, a set of handmade placemats that were crocheted in small stitches...and I have a set of twelve!!  What an awesome find that was!  The spoons are recent finds as well.

The salt and pepper shakers were from etsy, and the cups, although not all matching, came from a little shop near me that had a whole table full of hand painted items...and my HUSBAND found them!!

The napkins are some of my favorites, and although I only have four of them, they will be a part of my collection forever.  The bordered plate below was from the Goodwill store...a set of five little plates, but today they will serve as saucers. 

Do you prefer lemon or cream with your tea?
I'll be having coffee too, so if you'd prefer some coffee, I'll get you some.

If I had some pretty pink petit-fours I think they would look adorable on these plates.
Maybe even some tiny pink iced cupcakes, but you'll have to use your imagination...as with the tea and coffee, they don't exist.  Maybe some day I can have a REAL party and I'll get out all the pretty hand painted lovelies again. 

So hoping you enjoy your Sunday as well as your week.  I'll be joining the link parties below, so be sure and join us for lots of pretty posts.
Also, this week I will be starting up Pearls and Lace Thursday again after a few weeks off.
Be sure and come back to join me and share some of your pretties with us!!  It doesn't have to be pearls or lace, just something pretty that makes you happy!
Blessings to you!

Oh how gorgeous the set of dishes are.The napkins must have been a very popular embroidery design in the 40s or so, because my Great grandmother had the same ones that were passed down to me.Exact colors and pattern.What do you think or know about them?

Denise said...

After thinking about it and looking at how exact they are like mine.They must be store bought and not as old as I had thought all these years?

Delicate, pretty china is always one of my favorites. Yours is so beautiful. I can't imagine the skill and patience necessary to paint those plates.

Hello Doni,
What beautiful china! The soft delicate blue is just so charming.
I had done a post for your meme a couple of weeks ago and then found out you weren't doing one that week. With blogger acting up it is hard for me to do anything these days but hopefully, they will get things fixed up soon so we can all get back to normal. I hope you will stop by and link up so folks will know you are participating in Tea Time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful blues today. Lovely table! Have a wonderful day.
