I'm setting the table for breakfast tomorrow morning. We are at the lake, and have 2 of the Grandsons with us. They love to have me cook when we are at the lake especially. They have requested bacon, sausage, eggs, and toast. Of course there are also donut holes and cinnamon rolls to fill up those little spaces before lunch!
I'm sure everyone recognizes the old dishes I have at the lake. We actually got them out of the dumpster, someone must have gotten new ones. As one of my favorite bloggers said awhile back, Corelle isn't my favorite, but it sure works at the lake! The silverware is from my "hope chest" circa 1972. I got it out of "Duz" Laundry Soap, one place setting at a time. They have seen us through 37 years, so I guess that makes them pretty thrifty! Kinda funny how they match the dishes, huh?
We have a candle on the table that is in a quart jar. It's cinnamon apple, my favorite scent, always makes my DH think I'm baking something for him!
I have a friend who made me the below napkins rings. They are in a special little barn holder that stores them when not in use. There are 5 napkins rings, one for each in our family at the time she made them. The cows are salt and pepper.
In the front left to right is Emilie, Angie, and Jeff, and back left to right is Myself and Eldon. Notice that the girls all have blonde hair, which we do; and my husband even has a beard, which he does.
She took great care to make them pretty detailed. You can see the cow table cloth, and bandana napkins. I bought the bandana's for our son and DIL's wedding reception at our house. I think I got 20 of them so we use them for a lot of things.
Even the back of them are detailed.
They all store inside the fence, and the barn holds paper napkins too.
The back of the barn is painted in detail too, and this is an overhead view of the table.
Glad you could stop in, be sure and come back sometime. I will be over at Susan's to see what's going on at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/!!! Then, in all my spare time, I'll check in for more Thrifty Thursday ideas with Leigh and her friends at http://labratina.blogspot.com/ !!! It's gonna be a great day!!!
