Country -Tablescape Thursday

It's a country table this week folks! Nothing says country faster than checks..
chicken plates, that came from Dollar General - 50 cents, along with the matching bowls.
Nothing more fun than using the bandanas for napkins on a country table!
I use my old stand by - blue table cloth. As well as my blue Libby glasses. And my soup tureen that I've had for a year, and never even "scaped" before. Shame, shame, shame.....
I used my red plates as chargers, since I'm also featuring my thrift store soup tureen.
I have 2 sets of salt 'n peppers that are chickens. Until I bought these pretty little plates and matching bowls, I had NO chicken stuff. Now I know some of you are appalled by this fact, but it's true!
See the little chicken toes sticking out????? hehehehe
The tureen has a plate that fits underneath, with handles. I paid $3.00 for the whole shebang!
Love, love, love the details on the tureen.
Okay, so it's too warm to have soup today - Well these bowls work really well for fresh strawberries and ice cream too!
One more peek at the chickens who started it all! Hehehe! Hope you have a wonderful "rest" of the week. We will be heading for the Ozarks for vacation! Yipee!

  11. So cute - I love your writing style! I never had chicken dishes either - until a friend gave me salt and peppers. Isn't it amazing how the dishes just flock together? Love your ice cream!

  12. What a cute table, Sandi...that tureen is gorgeous. I would be doing a happy dance if I could find one for that price. I do like your rooster plates with the bandana napkins, they go so perfectly together.

  13. How darling! I must admit-I have NO roosters or chickens! You've set a wonderful table, maybe I need to start looking for chickens. Thanks for sharing with us!

  14. WOW! I LOVE that tureen....and the bandana napkins just make that tablescape! Great photos!

  15. I will take the plaid cup off of your hands, my dear---very homey!

  16. Hi Sandi! I have this same set!!! Isn't it the CUTEST?!! Only thing, I DO have the dinner plates, and I DO have the bowls, but I DON'T have the dessert plates! (gasp!) If they are marked down to 50 cents a piece, I'd better grab them! Off I run!!!.. Love your table today! ~tina

  17. Say that again?? $3 for the tureen WOW and I thought mine was a great buy for $12. Yours is lovely. Stop over and see mine too.

  19. Ha! Ha! Me again!.. Just HAD to tell you, I found my dessert plates!.. They were the LAST 8, exactly what I needed, and for 50 cents a piece!!! So glad I found out through you, and that I could get them before they were gone! I had to hunt for them on a bottom shelf! I'm bad about waiting till the last minute for clearance sales, and then often I forget... so I'm a very happy girl that I didn't miss out on these! Thanks! ~tina

  20. Sandi, I am in serious love with your soup tureen!! What a spectacular piece! I've been looking & looking for one & have never seen such a beautiful specimen. Treasure that one!

    ♥ all your little chicken items, too!

  21. Love all your elements together~ that soup tureen is great find!
