Last Near Tablescape of Summer


Hobnail glass, a quilt, and finally green grass.  
What do these have to do with each other?
The last near tablescape of summer.



The tablecloth is my best church sale find ever. 
Most days we use it as a throw in our den but I have just laundered it.

We are thankful for daily rains that have revived our flowers and grass. 
I have decided that when I do tablescapes (every other full moon on a Wednesday) I need a basket to carry plates and such to the patio table. 
This inspired the last near scape of summer.


My phone is creeping out behind the basket....Yikes.

  2. The quilt is beautiful; even more delightful is the embroidered piece
    in the basket.
    Every other full moon on a Wednesday sounds like a wonderful time to do tablescapes. I keep intending to do them....

    I can't post a comment here using my Blogger Account; those blogs are linked at my Wordpress site, I think.

  3. I went to the Pottery Barn Outlet yesterday and spent way too long in there. I ended up buying a pillow cover, came home and found out it was $5.00 cheaper through their website. I thought I was getting such a good deal! Love your quilt. Someone's little old Grandma probably spent months making that.

    1. On no Pam. Outlets are tricky. My hobnail glasses came from the store and were no bargain. They are my ONE PB purchase at the store for the year.

  8. That's a wonderful basket you found. And I'm hoping some of your rain makes its way a little further north. Right now our grass is very crunchy!
