~ The Farrier's Box ~

Gathering items for a tablescape is always a challenge and at times a bit on the daunting side. Once those items are gathered and the table set, I like to step back with a bit of pride knowing I've used my dishes in a fun and sometimes unusual way. I have to admit the idea first sprang from visiting Yvonne's blog over at Stonegable. Talk about someone inspiring, trust me you go away full of ideas and a spring in your step wanting to play with your dishes. If you haven't visited her blog before it's a must on the to do list, you won't leave disappointed.

Small antique milk bottles are the perfect choice to use as a flatware caddy.

Cream on cream always so rich, clean and pure looking.

Too early for Geraniums? Well... maybe just a tad you can tell where my mind is rolling to. Right past Spring and directly into early Summer. Have to admit the punch of red adds some spice to the table.
The Farrier's Box usually made from a packing crate was meant to be durable. They threw their tools in with no worry of damage. They didn't have the finery of the hidden drawers or frills of today's tool chest.

 The cream pitchers style and shape is the perfect choice for the style and era of the tablescape.
Red wine glasses from Wal Mart add a bit of grandeur to the country style setting.

Thanks for stopping by to view The Farrier's Box. I know I'm so far behind on answering emails, and visiting your blogs. There has been a whirl wind of activity around here, I may be slow but I promise to get around to each and everyone who take time to stop by to say hello. I appreciate your loyalty and kind comments, each and eveyone of them touch my heart.   Until next time.......
