Special Finds and Friends
Fall is quickly approaching and I realized I hadn't shown the table decor I've been enjoying this past month in my dining room.
Of course once I set out to take photos...all I got were cloudy days to photograph.
So these photos are not as clear as I would have hoped.
The white lanterns inspired this grouping.
A special friend surprised me with them last month when we met for lunch.
Belinda lives in Edmond, Oklahoma and we became friends through emails.
She saw these lanterns and just knew they were for me.
I was surprised and thrilled to get them.
I knew they'd end up in a summer vignette.
Belinda doesn't have a blog but she's a great pinner.
You can follow her Pinterest boards - here.
She finds the best inspiration.
So once I had the lanterns I had to come up with things to put with them.
That includes an old cut work white linen table cloth I've had forever.
I also got out pearl handled steak knives that were once my great grandmother's.
I guess I should have polished them...hmmmm.
I was inspired to get out my white china which I haven't had out in ages.
It's Johnson Brother's Richmond White.
My Mom used to buy it for me for every birthday and holiday.
Unfortunately, they discontinued it and now it's super expensive to find the missing pieces I need.
I have 12 place settings but I need serving pieces. No tragedy it mixes well with other china.
The grey wicker tray basket came from Hobby Lobby found on clearance for $20.
I was happy to find it and imagine it will show up in fall decorating later.
