Rhapsody in Blue Tablescape


~~Rhapsody in Blue Tablescape~~


I borrowed my mom's pretty blue chargers



This tablescape has been a work in progress for over a month now. I found these beautiful  dishes at the Goodwill. They are Sheffield Rhapsody #503. As soon as I laid eyes on them I knew they just had to come home with me. I bought the service for four including the butter dish for $10.00!! I was thrilled with the price.

The pretty embroidered napkins came from a Thrift Store just last week and they were $2.93 for a set of four.
The knife spreaders also came from a Thrift Store and were $7.99, a little more than I like to pay but they were so pretty and new in the box so....somehow they found their way into my cart. 


I NEVER...... EVER.......  win anything, I mean my name could be the only one in a box along with a blank piece of paper and believe me the blank paper would be drawn lol.... BUT---I have won not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 giveaways here in blogland  since the end of February.
The little paper pocket that is holding my tea packets were in a  scrapbook giveaway that Shannon at A Southern Belle with Northern Roots hosted. You can go HERE to see all the lovely things that she sent me!
 


These beautiful napkin rings were a gift from Meri at ImagiMeri's. She was my partner in a Easter Swap Party that Sue from It's a Very Cherry World hosted. You can go HERE to see all the wonderful items that Meri sent to me. 

My tablecloth is a full size flat sheet that I picked up at Goodwill for $2.00. Gotta love those Goodwill deals!

Please stop by and visit with Shannon, Meri and Sue, I know you will enjoy their blogs.

I will soon be sharing more about the giveaways that I have won so stop back in.
Thank You for coming by today!

I am joining the following blog parties this week:
