Vintage tablescape~thanks to a blogging friend!

Aren't blogging friends the BEST?
 Debbie who blogs at My Vintage Daydreams sent me this vintage
tablecloth....just because!  She said she thought of me when she
 found it.  She is such a sweet person!  We "met" as Valentine swap
partners.  Making new friends is even better than the swapping part!

Debbie hasn't been posting much lately.  We all know how life can be sometimes,
 more important things need to take precedence.  She is reading blogs when she can,
so I hope she enjoys seeing this tablescape.

I love this sweet tablecloth, it has everything!  Wooden buckets of flowers, clocks,
pitchers, fruit, jars, and canisters.  As soon as I saw it I knew it would pair
perfectly with my vintage Hazel Atlas platonite dishes.
 I pretended Debbie was coming for lunch, and set a pretty but casual table.  A chance
 for us to sit and enjoy some tasty food and conversation..."girl time!".

It is amazing how well the Hazel Atlas matches the colors in this tablecloth.
I used a vintage clothespin to hold the napkin.  I'm so creative!

I thought the Shawnee King Corn pieces and Hall duck casserole
just belonged on this homestyle table.   

Oh yeah,  Pyrex belongs on a casual table too.  Refrigerator dish for the casserole,
& mixing bowl for the salad. The flowered pitcher is 1960's Japan,
 and the amber stemmed glasses were thrift store finds.

  After lunch we're going to enjoy some coffee perked the old fashioned way,
on the stove in a Pyrex glass coffeepot. 

This coffeepot saves me when we lose electricity.  I can still make morning
coffee on our gas stove, while the Keurig sits useless.  :)

I hope Debbie likes my table and we get to "sit a spell".
 Would you like to join us?  I can easily set a couple more places.
There might even be dessert!
