Spring Chickens and Vera's Butterflies

Welcome to another Tablescape Thursday
hosted by Susan of Between Naps On The Porch

I might be pushing the season a bit, but Spring is certainly in the air
here in Northern California.  Lots of new growth and reemergence in the garden
and so many more minutes of light each day.

This is a vintage Vera tablecloth with matching napkins.
Post 86 Fiesta in White and Sapphire, with decorative salad plates from
Tuesday Morning and Home Goods.
Napkin rings from Cost Plus about 20 years ago mimic Vera's butterflies.
The glassware is a mix of vintage depression glass and contemporary cobalt from
Pier 1.  Sterling is American Directoire.

I just love these chickens!

My constant companion and resident vintage tablecloth expert, sitting at my feet soaking
up the heat on this chilly morning.  Predicted to be around 72F today.....whoooohoooo!
Spring is on the way and I'm headed out to the garden.


  1. WOW! So bright and cheery! Love those hens too!

  4. GORGEOUS! Love the green, blue and white! Those chickens are fabulous! I'm going back to look everything over again!


  5. This retro tablesetting is absolutely fresh and delightful! My immediate reaction was to remember the big bright colors of the 70's like the Marimeko linens, but it just looks fresh and new and modern..lovely and I really like those chickens.
