TABLE FOR TWO AND A THANK YOU







Bloggers are so thoughtful and considerate. I want to thank two of my dear friends I have been so fortunate to get to know since starting my blog.

My dear friend Marcia at "The Shop Around The Corner" is such a talented artist. I left a comment telling her how much I adore her sweet little paper slippers. Now I have one on my French hutch. I enjoy looking at it every day. Thank you Marcia.

Marigene, my sweet friend at "In the Middle of Nowhere" is a dish collector and sets the most amazing tablescapes.  
She saw my tablescape, "Pretty Pink Tulips"using the pieces I have of Pink Castles by Johnson Bros. I didn't have enough to make a full place setting so she sent me plates and salad plates so that I am now able to set a table with complete place settings. Thank you Marigene.

Here are photos of The French Hutch with Marcia's paper slipper and plates from Marigene to set a "Table for Two" using a compete place settings of "Pink Castles".

  4. Emily, how well I know how special blogging buddies are. '-)
    The little slipper is dear, and the thought of Marigene sending you the dishes to finish out two place settings is so touching. Yes, bloggers are the best friends.
    Your table for two is lovely. I like all centerpiece of ruffled edge cake plates and that rooster container is putting a huge smile across my face. Beautiful setting all around. ~ Sarah

  12. I have red transferware jealousy! Such generous friends from bloggy land, too. I have red transferware for a complete tea set for 12 place settings, BUT, I haven't been able to get the dinner ware, as it's hard to find around here. I love all you did and your table looks lovely. The ruffled cake plates are awesome, I totally love them!
