Tablescape Tuesday







Thanks Susan for hosting Tablescape Tuesday--today my dinning room table is ready for Christmas Day meals--the dishes are hand painted from Germany. I purchased years ago in a local antique shop, the stemware I have collected over the years, monogrammed napkins belonged to my husband's mother. Silver tea pitcher found in an antique shop in a small MS town. I hope you enjoy.

I love your hand painted china plates... My Mother used to paint china... She tried and tried to teach me... but all I wanted to do was pottery... She love the dainty, soft pieces and I loved the mud.
