A celebration for Daphne

As you begin a new adventure, I'd like to share this tablescape I designed with you in mind....

This is a vintage Simtex fishing village cloth I've decorated with vintage Gray and Forest Fiesta, Bakelite fish napkin rings and Jamestown goblets.  You might also notice some special HLCCA goblets from the last Pittsburgh conference!

Daphne you are loved and you are an inspiration to all of us in so many ways.

Please stop by to visit with Elaine  and Candy to see how they are celebrating Daphne today

Daphne's Boston Cloth

Sorry I'm a little behind schedule in connecting up with Daphne and amazing blog

In the fall of 2011, I took my first trip to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the flea market.  

I walked by a booth that had a very daunting pile of clothing and miscellaneous fabric.  Knowing that sometimes treasures can be found, I started digging.  Just when I was about to give up, I began to find tablecloths and found a surprising gem.

I added a few new tablecloths, including this fabulous Boston tablecloth...

Knowing this cloth was going off to live in the city where it belonged, I took the opportunity to do a farewell tablescape using Black, Scarlet and Periwinkle fiesta, Viking glassware and vintage red bakelite flatware:

 This cloth is now at home in the Boston area with my tablescape diva, Daphne, so let's take a peek at what marvelous things she has done with this cloth.....
