Fish Are Jumping

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin', and the cotton is high
Your Daddy's rich and your Mama is good lookin'
So, hush, little baby don't you cry

It may NOT be summertime yet, but the fish are jumpin' here on The Little Round Table and over at Tabletop Time with my friend Daphne who has Gone Fishin' We're both featuring Chicken of the Sea premium items on our tables today, so be sure to jump on over to check out her table too.

We've played with fish on our tabletops before with other dishing friends:

The fish plates came in a matte ivory glaze as shown here
and some rare examples with colored glazes that Daphne is featuring.

The tablecloth is vintage and the place settings also include vintage as well as Post86 Fiesta.
More details at the end of this post.
