Our Queen of Tablescapes, Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch
is once again hosting Tablescape Thursday. Please check out her blog for a whole bunch of wonderful tablescapes.
This week I am using my versatile white Mikasa Italian Countryside dinner plates combined with four different salad plates painted with berries. The green octagon plates and green glassware from the depression era are used to add some color.
Each salad plate is different; some were inherited and some were purchased along the way. When antique shopping, I always look for hand-painted 5"-6" plates with fruit or flowers, as each one is so individual and useful. China painting was a popular activity for women in the early 1900s.
Thanks for stopping by,
