It's Sunday, which means it is time again for  Sunday Favorites

Join in on the fun and post a link to a past favorite post from your blog.

No dashes here, just lots and lots of dots ..... polka dots!
They always seem so cheery to me, so think circus or carnival or perhaps even a Fiesta!

The tablecloth is of unknown origin, may be vintage, but I'm leaning more to a European contemporary linen.  Post 86 Sunflower dinner plates, with salad plates from Pier 1.

The flatware is vintage CutRite, glassware is also vintage.  The polka-dot water bottle came from Crate and Barrel years ago.  All the other Fiesta is vintage, including the demitasse pot (aka chocolate pot) with the matching stick handled demitasse cups and saucers.  Vintage Red creamer and Yellow sugar sit on the Turquoise Figure 8 Tray, Yellow Bud Vase, Sweets Comport (aka compote) and finally the vintage Light Green and Yellow salt and pepper shakers.  Napkins came from Bed Bath Beyond if I remember correctly.

01/21/10 EDITED TO ADD:
Thanks to Rettabug for the ID on my green depression glassware that I use so often
here on TLRT!
Anchor Hocking's "Pillar Optic" design, sometimes called "Logs" or "Log Cabin"

And thanks to Daphne for catching my late night error - the flatware is "Quikut" not CutRite!
Thanks D!

Light Green demitasse cup and saucer.

Cobalt demitasse cup and saucer.

And if you like a wilder and crazier polka, this might be more your style.....
bigger, wilder, brighter polka dot napkins are from Pier 1.


  1. so cute how your cloth has the same shade dots, like they were made for it~

    i love the fountain focal in the window~

  2. Hi Candy...

    Girlfriend, I love, love, LOVE your polka dotted tablescape! You're absolutely right about it being so cheerful! The table cloth is just darling and the polka dot salad plates are sooo perfect with it! Hehe...I can't believe that you found a polka dot water bottle to go with this tablescape...fabulous!!! I also love your fiesta chocolate pot and little demitasse cups...they seem so perfectly at home on this pretty table, my friend! Thank you so much for sharing it with us today for Sunday Favorites...such a treat!

  3. I love polka dots! This is so cheery!


  4. Wow, I'm seeing dots everywhere! I love that bottle!

  5. Thanks to all of you for stopping by for another look at the polka dots! I'm going to have to pull this out and take another stab at a tablescape. This one was done in the dead of winter and looking at it now it looks very dreary ..... we now have sunshine to go with the polka dots.


  6. Thanks Trish, I do appreciate you coming by for Sunday Favorites!
