A Kitty on the Table??

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Betweennapsontheporch. It's always a delight each week to see all the beautiful tablescapes. There is so much talent out there in blogland and we're fortunate each Thursday to see a lot of them.

This week I've chosen to repost the blue and white tablescape from a while back. I'm amazed at how I did things then, and how I'm doing them now. lol.. I'm seeing improvement and in the next couple of weeks or so I hope you say the same Oh my goodness, there is a kitty on the table...Debbie I promise I didn't bring one of your kitties home with me. It appears to be after something...
I've chosen the cloche dome full of pears as the center piece. The cake stand was a find at TJ Maxx quite a while back. I've put out a donut and cup of coffee just for you.

I've had Miss Kitty for a long time. I'm not sure I remember where I got her, but fell in love and she had to come home with me.

The sugar bowl, cup and saucer is Meakin and was gotten at a friends sale many years ago. I used an antique doily as the placemat.

From above

The plate was found at Hobby Lobby on their 80% isle. That's been a while back.

My daughter knows I love teapots and have quite a few to show for that addiction. This was a gift a few years back. She brought it back while vacationing on the East Coast. Perfect for this table setting.. Hole in the middle matches the hole in the middle of the donut.. lol.... :-))

Miss Kitty is certainly persistant isn't she?
Now, we see why. She was after this adorable mouse. I'm sure many of you recall seeing this little guy other times. I honestly can not remember where I got the adorable little mouse, I've had it for many years.

I'm sure the mouse is singing high praises or praying for Devine Intervention.

Close up of my the beautiful teapot. :-))

Thanks for swinging in today. I've enjoyed you stopping by. Be sure to treat yourself by swinging over to Susan's for a full list of those participating. I'll see you there.

hugs ~lynne~

Lynne, this is just wonderful. I love all of your blue and white. I do think Debbie will be after your kitty since she loves anything blue and white. I love that precious little mouse. Your cloche on the cakestand full of pears is such a wonderful idea and looks so pretty. Now for the teapot, it is stunning. I really, really love it all. Hugs, Marty

Lynne, You did a super job on this tablescape. First of all I love kities, secondly your dishes are absolutely to die for beautiful and third, I haven't had a donut in a long, long time! Truly, this is so pretty. I love the addition of the golden pears all snuggled in under glass. Your photography is super! I have a T/S ready to post in just a bit! Hope things are going well for you and yours.

Hi Lynne,

Thanks for the visit, my new camera isn't working and I have to send it to Pentx to be repaired.:(
Lord only knows how long I'll be without it, so I'm not adding anything to my blog.

I've been spending a lot of time on Facebook, getting reacquainted with old friends and even some family, and meeting many new ones.
When asked by a girlfriend to join, I did, but didn't pay it much attention. However, now I find it very entertaining and lots of fun re-living some childhood times.

I'm so pleased to hear that your husband is doing better, I bet you can breath a little easier now. THANK GOD.

I've been spending a lot of time tending to my dog, he was operated on to have lumps removed and looks awful from being shaved, but is doing very well. I'm spoiling him, I know he will be my last Collie and I just want to keep him around as long as I can, he was eleven this past March.

Be well my friend and take care.

It's beautiful Lynne!

I did a replay for Foodie Friday, from '07. I see a big difference in how I do things these days too. Blogging is a good thing. :-)
