My vacation is almost up, so I thought I'd join Susan for Metamorphosis Monday (while I had a chance to play).
http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ Last Tablescape Thursday, I used a red toile duvet for a tablecloth. You can see more pictures here:
I started to put it away, then I began playing with pewter, and the next thing I knew, I'd attempted to make two different tablescapes, this time using a plaid blanket and an old tapestry.
Here's last week's toile:
I used an old tapestry for a tablecloth.
Next, I tried an Italian plaid blanket and added a tall urn with a flower.
The pewter is Wilton--from the 70s.
Candlelight brings out the highlights in the metal, doesn't it?
My mother called while I was lighting the candles. With the phone propped under my chin, I began tablescaping. And I set my poor hair on fire. I told Mom I'd have to call back. Luckily I was wearing flannel and smothered the flames. No harm done, except for an Eau du Charcoal smell. The moral of this story: Don't talk on the phone if you have long hair and you are playing near votive candles.
See y'all tomorrow with a quick recipe for Italian Ice--which can be eaten OR used for medicinal purposes, such as cooling flambeed skin.
XX OOVisit our gracious hostess, Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch to view makeovers at Metamorphosis Monday.
