Foodie Friday

There's just something magical about having lunch in the sunshine.


The pottery is "Tangier," made by Tabletops Unlimited.

The red goblets, Fostoria's "Jamestown," were wedding gifts. The napkins are dish towels. And the flatware is "Avalon." The "tablecloth" is actually a throw; and the vase was swiped from the den, complete with fake flowers, which I adore ... and always will.



Don't forget to sign up for the Le Creuset give-way on Facebook. Just leave a message, using the word "cherry."

If you are participating in this week's Foodie Friday, you can find detailed instructions
HERE.
Otherwise, Mr. Linky, awaits your recipe and bloglink.

  3. Lunch anywhere except my kitchen would be a welcomed change! Your pottery is colorful and fun! It really lends a festive feel to your table.
    Using dish towels is a relaxed and homey addition to the table... and putting a throw on your little lunch table gives it a rich look!
    Now let's eat!

  32. Always a treat to see your post. Love your pottery and your setting! So pretty.

    Michael, I am having trouble entering the Le Creuset giveaway. I can't leave a comment on your facebook page. It keeps going to my personal face book page. I know I am doing something very stupid but maybe others are having this happen to them too.
