Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Tablescape Thursday

To begin with, it's a season change for me. You see, I have these plastic placemats that I use under things in the kitchen, like under the coffee pot, under the utensils by the stove, to protect the wood on my real butcher block island. But it's time for the Gloria Vanderbilt to go away.....
and the red/white/blue to come out!!!! So, while I'm on a roll, just go ahead and do the tablescape silly!!!
Love the simplicity, cause you know - it's all about the freedom and the FLAG!

I used a flag style of table runner. On top of this piece of white double knit with navy stars that I used on the table.
Throw in just a little thing here and there from Pier I, like plates, candle, what else can I find?

More Pier I - star shaped serving dishes that also work well for candle dishes.

Love the little dots on the glasses, also from Pier I.

This one was a lot of fun!!!!
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day. Let us all give thanks for the men and women fighting for us this weekend and every other day of the year. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!Joi
