I am joining Tabletop Thursday today.  Stop over at BNOTP and see all the lovely tabletops.
The little white owl napkin rings are an old find from GW.

TN spring and more 325 I played around today with all my ew pretties.  I love Ironstone dishes.  Imagine my surprise, when I spied a cardboard box at the GW filled with these lovelies.  They are J & G Meakin, from England, the pattern is Sterling Renaissance.  There were 24 pieces in perfect condition, not even a chip and they were $8.99 for all!  Whoo hoo, made my day!  Aren’t they lovely?

The linens I used for this were found last week at the GW, the dishtowels are from Williams Sonoma and have never been used, well really all of it is new and has never been used.  There are 4 placemats, 4 dishtowels, 2 fringed napkins (not sure what happened to the other 2).  There was also a checkered tea towel also new.  These were all $.79, $.99 a piece.

  1. I love those dishes. I saw some in my local thrift but they had a huge price on them and I passed. I love this table you have set.

  2. A very pretty table setting - Love the green and white together. I really need to get back to setting a pretty table. Right now everything is covered up with a laptop, jewelry supplies and paperwork!!:(
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. I ♥♥♥ your white and green table...gorgeous!

  4. That is my favorite color. That lovely shade of green. Makes me think of the garden.

  8. First, I was going to send out the calvary looking for you so I'm glad you are posting today. OK, now that I've got my Marla worry hat off and I might say, it's so much more fun to worry about you than myself, hee, hee.

    I would die for those dishes. Seriously, stunning. LOVE them. LOVE them! The table is gorgeous.

  12. Love the color palate and the dishes!

    No that Goodwill by the Classy Flea isn't good. It used to be and then it just went down hill. But the Classy Flea is great isn't it! That's where I'm going Mother's Day to go shopping (I found my china cabinet there for Mother' Day many years ago).


  13. Delightfully lovely. I love these dishes. Beautiful post.

    Have a great weekend.
