~ Beautiful Blues ~

You know how it is when you have one post in mind and something comes up throws you for a loop and you go to plan B with another post? That's the way it's been around here the past few days. To say Mr. P has kept me on my toes is an understatement. Bless he heart, his legs and head just won't work together, I'm learning the art of balance in a whole different way my friends. 

A few weeks back while the hydrangeas were in full bloom I had the best time using the cut flowers inside. Enjoying their beauty on a daily basis brightened the room and the mood. I so wish they bloomed in our area all year long. They've become my favorite flower. Their wispy edges are so graceful. 

 Using a variety of sizes I stared building the tablescape with my favorite charger from J.C. Penney's. Letting each one speak on it's own sharing their captivating beauty with us.

 I love my small casserole dish purchased last summer from Nell Hill's in Atchison on a girl's day trip.
 The beauty of the farm scene depicts the area we live in. It's way too hot for soup right now, but I can see it full of fresh green beans, new potatoes with a bit of ham thrown in . Doesn't that sound yummy?

 Vintage lace always steals my heart
 With monogrammed details topped off with flatware from Target.

Wine glass from Walmart, tea glasses from Old Time Pottery many years ago hold your drink of choice.
 Let's light the candles.
 Coffee anyone? Some of you may not drink hot coffee this time of year, how does a cup of iced coffee sound?

From above. Oh so pretty.


hugs ~ Lynne ~

Oh Lynn, your table setting is stunning! I love your blues and the small tureens with the food idea, just made hungry for it! Your chargers are way beautiful too! The hydrangeas are perfect for a blue table my dear. The linen, the glasses, evrything is lovely. Hope you can go to Let's Dish, or BNOTP tomorrow to visit my patriotic table.
Hugs,
FABBY

What a beautiful blue and white table. This is a color combination I am working on right now for my family sunday dinners, blue and white. So crisp, clean, and invokes a feeling of days gone by and rich history. You have done such a wonderful job of putting it all together, too. I wish we could grow hydrangeas in AZ!

I love the little tureens. They are just like my brown transferware turreens I got at Nell Hill's Briarwood, during the grand opening.

Gorgeous table Lynne!

Hi Lynne! Oh, your table setting is so pretty! I wish I could grow hydrangeas. I have a pitiful little bush with two limbs and about six leaves. Don't think I'll have any blooms for some time. Yours are just gorgeous! Everything on your table is so lovely and I have your tea glasses in red! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi, Lynne! Don't even trip about getting around to visit my posts. You have your hands full, lady, and I am 1000% on board with that. I admire all the time and patience and love that goes above & beyond that you are putting into your home & work life right now. It's not easy to keep so many balls in the air! Just take care of hubby and Y-O-U!!! I'm glad to see you doing some tablescaping. This is very pretty, and it's good therapy for the mind, heart & soul. And you got those chargers at JC Penney??!?!?! Really???? They're beautiful! I think people underestimate the power of "Jacque Pene"! :-) I have purchased some great stuff there in the recent past. Take care of yourself, little sister, and as we used to say back in the day: "Keep on keepin' on!" :-)

Scribbler said...

I do love this table! You can never go wrong with blue and white, and it seems that the possibilities are endless.

All the best on the health situation.

Chubby Chieque said...

Gorgeous settings, dear Lynne...

I will keep my fingers X and my heart will say a pray for your calmness and to Mr. P. Keep your faith, everything will be OK.

However, I can see your mood doesn't seem to bother. That's what the saying says: DOn't judge the book by it's cover", indeed.

Enjoy your day and have a blissful w/end.

Hi Lynne ~
Bless you for creating such blue beauty in the midst of distractions.
Year-round hydrangeas are possible...
I dry my Summer crop of blossoms and
put them in vases or baskets throughout the house to brighten
Fall days. One year I placed them
throughout our Christmas tree and it
brought an airy effect when the tree
was lighted, even unlit...
Take care of yourself, set your pace
at gradual, and seek things to smile
about.....
Blessings ~
Mary

You know when you have dreams and wake disappointed that it was just a dream? Yep. That's probably going to happen tomorrow when I dream about those casserole dishes.....I CANNOT stand how cute they are.
