The ABC's of Tablescaping

Today, I would like to share part of my ABC plate, mug, and silverware collections for Tablescape Thursday.



This was my first ABC plate, a gift from hubby.



Three little kittens on an English mug is by Allertons.


The parrot is singing, "Won't you come into the garden, Maud?"


The silverware with kittens and ABC's came from a local antique shop.


A child's bible...


Add a miniature hand vase with coreopsis...

a finger lamp to light the way...


and an old bear friend.

Lots of glare!!!











Stop by Between Naps on the Porch to view more participants on this Tablescape Thursday.

I love children's dishes and anything with the alphabet. This is darling! I see you own a Hallmark store...that has got to be great. I would have to take my pay in "stuff" and then still owe the store!

Hi Joan! I'm a new visitor to Thursday Tablescapes. I don't participate, but aspire to someday as I learn from the best of all of YOU! (0; Yours is very sweet!.. Love the kitten silverware, the crochet placemats (now THAT'S MY specialty!).. I LOVE hurricane lamps (though I have to be far more careful after an accident with one of the cats! Nobody was hurt and no damage was done.. except to the lamp!).. Anyways, I might also add, as I look to the right side bar, that I like reading anything by Mary Higgins Clark too! The trouble is, she's one of those authors whose books I CAN'T PUT DOWN!!! (0; ~tina
