Bird house dishes for Tablescape thursday

I was at Mom's this week, helping her out with a little "border hanging" project, and decided to use her dishes for this week's table.
Bird s&p's
This is a good time to bring out all the birds and nests we could find!

Daisy silverware from the local grocery store with "coupons" many years ago.

The dishes from an antique store - although they are not antiques.

White napkins were a gift from my sister, Susan.

Scattered a few more birds around the table.

There are 4 different salad/desertplates to chose from, there'sthe barn,

the church,
the House,
and the School House.
The dinner plate is plain with just the birdie border.
Each mug has one of each pattern on it.
Each glass has one of each pattern on it.

Thanks first of all to my Mom for letting me take photos and play dishes with her pretties! Thanks also to Susan for always graciously hosting Tablescape Thursday. Click on the below address to follow me over to see more.

  6. The dishes are so fun! I love all the bird houses. I think it is wonderful you got to tablescape with your mom. I didn't get that chance since we lived so far apart. Even though I had so many of her things when she was still alive, now that mom is gone...using her things is so bittersweet. It made me smile to think of your mom being a part of your table setting.

  7. Love your tablescape. I have all of my Grandmama's birds, and I enjoy using them, too. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
