Sue bought this from Nadine originally as a present but we both fell in love with it and couldn’t bear to give it away. And because it was from Nadine it still had its matching napkins!
This is actually called “Winter” and it really is a Wilendur cloth. It looks like something that might have been on a table at the “Holiday Inn” in the movie of the same name. We both really liked the grey highlights on the snowy trees so we started the table out with my grey plaid 50′s dishes.
Next up we pulled in a salad plate with a silver edge to start the sparkle factor, and then topped the whole thing with my small green restaurant-ware bowls found at the Longest Yard sale.
Sue’s much loved Twin Star silverware keeps the sparkle going and my latest find, the green cups & saucers, finish everything off. While we were getting this together Sue pulled out her mag light to check out a mark she found on the bottom of one of the saucers and lo and behold, they’re Vernonware!
Check out those napkins! Are those not the coolest?
The mountain silhouette reminds me a little of Mt. Shasta and its nearby sister, Mt. Lassen. I’m craving warm soup and lots of french bread just looking at this!
The centerpiece is a very cute vintage-looking piece. Sue has a knack for looking in corners and under piles and pulling out treasures like this : ) We have a vintage store near us that is only open one weekend a month and some months she finds nothing. Other months she’s got her extra sensory thing going and totally scores! I discovered they also now have a booth at the flea market and this last month I bought the most gorgeous lucite handled, silk covered umbrella that I can use while commuting. Score!
Christmas is coming, how ready are you?
