Tablescape Thursday!

it feels great to be back on Tablescape Thursday! Notice the Antique table runner. It has shades of light green in with the beige. It is beautiful!

My best friend Lori gave me the silver butter dish! A wedding gift to her Mother! What an honor!



Not matching plates but still beautiful! Have a wonderful Thursday! Be sure to visit the Matriarch of Tablescape Thursday, at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/2009/08/welcome-to-51st-tablescape-thursday.html
Love Lilly

Your friend must really think a lot of you to give you a treasured piece of her mom's silver. Your daughter is a sweetie for giving you the computer too--you must be loved!

Somebody once gave me an easel that belonged to her artist Mom and I cherish it for that reason. that she cared about me enough to give me such a precious item. I see you've had the same experience. What a feeling. Love your tablescape and surprise!!! I'm your 10th follower!
Have a wonderful day

Lilly, I think that runner is so pretty! I love your tea pots, and the special meaning the butter dish holds.

Your daughter is a gem for giving you a new (and PINK!!) computer. :)

I have a feeling Coley is a lot like her mama. :)

Lilly, I love the silver tea pots marching down the center of that pretty runner. How special to have your friend's mother's butter dish. She must have known you would treasure it. Your tablescape looks so pretty. laurie
