Tablescape Tuesday





Welcome to my tablescape for tuesday...this is only the 2nd time I have presented. The dinnerset I have used is simply Denbyhttp://www.denby.co.uk/ranges/1146/greenwich.aspx in the greenwich. This is my everyday use tableware and has served its purpose very well over time. The beautiful yellow/red/green and purple glass bowls you can see are from my belated mother-in-law. You can see how thin the glass is by the single photograph of the purple one. Honestly when you hold them it feels like paperthin ice. They I think come from the 30's/40's.....I don't and cannot use them as they are so delicate...but they are gorgeous to get out and hold at times. The tablecentre piece is a huge...well to describe it is...(ok for those of us who can remember the drink) like a babycham glass. Thank you for stopping by...and I hoped you enjoyed my green/goldie tablesetting...till next time.x
Oh before I go if you fancy a look at other beautiful Table Landscape...please go and have a look here http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/and you will see the links....they are truly lovely. Enjoy....you never know if you haven't joined in yet...you might.

Oh gorgeous! Happy Tuesday! You're ahead of us in the US! It's lovely. The bowls do look unusual. You have done a beautiful job! I'm doing my first one tomorrow also. It was hours of work! Did it take you that long or is it just me??...Debbie

Hello there! I just discovered your blog and will definitely be back for more visits. Your tablescape is lovely as is your writing. I must tell you I went back to earlier posts and read about your mother and father. I know, full well, your pain and heartache. Please know I am thinking about you ... I wrote poetry and kept a journal during the years I cared for my mother (through Alzheimer's disease and Lewy Body disease.) I have posted a few of them. I stopped writing poems about her a week or so after she passed away in my arms-a tiny shell of the woman she had been.
