Wishing for winter to be over and a trip to an island like
beautiful Bermuda. I was there once, many moons ago.
A gorgeous island, clear aqua water you can see right
through to the sand at the ocean bottom.
I enjoy ironing my tablecloths and seeing the great graphics come to life.
Debbie of My Vintage Daydreams was my swap partner
for the 521 Lake Street Valentine swap hosted by Sandy.
Debbie sent me a myriad of goodies, including a
Bermuda Souvenir vintage tablecloth.
I couldn't wait to do a tablescape with this wonderful tablecloth, and I'm not quite ready
to get rid of all the Valentine's RED, so I get to enjoy it here with the blue.
Ah...red & blue together make a great pairing!
The large charger (almost) size plates are dollar store. The powder blue plates
are vintage Knowles china, and the bread plate Iroquois Casual by
Russel Wright. Sweet damask napkins pick up the powder blue
in the plates, and the red cocktail napkins make it pop.
More of the tablecloth to enjoy. I used my crab S&P shakers, and milk glass fish dish,
which just fit a tablecloth filled with water themed graphics.
I couldn't help but use some of the rag ball & yo-yo's I got
from Holly~Cutie Pie Cottage (sidebar link). Got them in a swap we did,
and I've used them in lots of décor already. Added an enamel pin
and one of the napkins, and the fish looks happy now!
Pretty vintage etched juice glasses, and flying themed
vintage Hazel Atlas drinking glasses fit right in with the huge
airplane graphic on the tablecloth.
Can't close without mentioning the vase at the top of the tablescape (shown better below)
was my Mom's. She moved into assisted living last summer. This vase sat atop her desk
for many years. It now belongs to me and I treasure it.
For all you modernists out there...it has been identified as Lipp Mering pottery,
made in Bavaria, designed by Lu Klopfer. I'm also told this pottery is highly
desired by Mid-Century Modern fans. (I'm one!)
Hope you enjoyed my table. I always appreciate your visits and your comments!
Warming up here some this week.......can't wait!
Hope you will also be having warmer weather this week.
