Lemon Tree In The Fog

I'm joining Marty's Tabletop Tuesday over at A Stroll Through Life

A reader recently suggested that I needed a lemon tree in my kitchen to go with all my brightly colored tablescapes, but since I have one growing right outside my kitchen window I think I'll stick with it.  Here are some freshly picked lemons and above you can see the tree in the early morning fog.

This vintage Startex plaid tablecloth helps to brighten the kitchen on
this dreary morning.  Vintage and contemporary items are combined to
compliment this unusual mix of colors.

Square chargers are from

Vintage Wells Art Glaze Peach dinner plates.

Vintage Fiesta Yellow luncheon plates.

Vintage Fiesta Red salad plate.

Contemporary Fiesta White Berry Bowl

Vintage Metlox Spiral candle holders

Vintage Homer Laughlin Oven Serve mixing bowls with platinum trim

Napkins, pitcher, tea things from Home Goods
Goblets and candles from Pier 1
Tumblers from Cost Plus
Flatware from the web
Tea Cups are Rosenthal "Medallion"

Thanks so much for coming by for another tablescape from
The Little Round Table!


  1. Oh my, as usual, I love it all. Your colors are just fabulous and I always love the combination of dishes that you put together. I love, love, love the square chargers, they are just exceptional. Your two pitchers are fantastic also. Of course you know that I drool over that rooster and every vignette that you display on your island. So pretty. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  2. I don't know where to begin, Candy ~ The colors you have put together are so warm, rich & festive. I love the dishes, accents & the rooster ... bus oh, that picture of the lemon tree thru the window is awesome ... Lovely!

  3. I visit your blog often, and each time I am amazement at the beautiful vignettes and table-settings you put together. Your collection of dishes are unbelievable. Thank you so much for sharing with those of us who are "challenged" when it comes to putting a beautiful table together. Hugs, Karie

  4. Hi Candy.

    I was waiting to see what you'd do with the WAG, and this is a super unexpected combination. The peach glaze looks great with the spiral candle holders. I love the lemons in the fog!

  5. Hi Candy! Oh, what a wonderful table! I love these soft colors and those candlesticks are so unusual! Your glassware is outstanding and I love your pretty white pieces tossed in.
    I have a lemon tree too and have been enjoying them during our little wintry months!!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. Just beautiful. You never disappoint.

  7. The shell muffin plate is one of my favourite pieces in your collection. This whole setting is lovely, as is your lemon tree in the fog.

  8. I love the color combination and the Ovenserve bowls. I told a friend about your blog and she is "addicted" to it. You inspired her to fix up her dining room. Great table as always.

  9. Thank you all for stopping in for this foggy day post! Fog may sound like a bad thing, but in reality it means warmer temps here in Northern California. The morning fog is making photo shoots a little more challenging, but also makes for a cozy feel in the kitchen.

    I'm so pleased you all enjoyed my little adventure with these citrus colors .... loving my new Peach WAG plates from a fellow collector.


  10. LOVE your kitchen and WONDERFUL dishes!!! I'm getting new cupboards in my kitchen, distressed wood with counter tops, and I've not seen many like this...soooo happy to find yours. Your kitchen is AMAZING!! Thanks for letting me take a peek!

  11. Hi Candy,
    I love fresh lemons and lemon trees, too. That looks for me like in the paradise. And your table is again just gorgeous. Amazing, how many nice shapes of plates and dishes exist.
    Greetings, Johanna

  12. I adore the vintage tablecloth. Love all the colors.

  13. I can smell the fresh citrus fragrance coming off this table! Love everything about this one, Candy. ~ Sarah

  14. Oh those sunshine colors are making me happy! What a wonderful table setting and a wonderful way to combat cabin fever!

  15. O' how I want some citrus trees!...the photo of the lemon tree in the fog, so amazing, and your tablescape is as usual,INCREDIBLE!
    I am visiting from OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY.

  16. Candy, you have the MOST wonderful collection of vintage kitchen and tablescaping treasures, and I love to come see how you put them together. And oooo, how I love those chargers! They are beautiful and make such a statement. Of course you have a wondeful lemon tree growing right outside your door! I think you live a charmed life! I KNOW you create a charming life. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie

  17. Thanks to each of you for coming by to soak up some wonderful color! Color is what gets me through the gray days of a California winter.
