Hi everyone! I've been fighting a cold and really haven't felt like doing much except laying in bed and watching old shows on Hulu! But we have relatives coming in from out of town on Monday so I'm plodding around trying to get things in order for that. This will be the first time they've seen the house and they are people who are very focused on the external, brand name only, shop at Neiman Marcus kind of people. So I have a teeny bit of anxiety about the whole thing! Anyway, I'm redoing my china cabinet for Christmas (it calms me to play with my dishes) and thought I'd bring a few turkey plates into the kitchen.
Those are vintage turkey salt-n-pepper shakers in the middle. The pumpkin ones are from the dollar spot at Target and the big acorn ones are from last year end of the season sale at Hobby Lobby. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
Because I know some of you will want the name of the pattern!
I spotted this pretty silver serving spoon while looking through the jumble of silverware at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It's really heavy (if that means anything)!
I added some black pom pom fringe to the white that was already there. Now it looks like black and white pom pom fringe! Love it!
I made the placemat the dishthingie is on. I just used a piece of brown and cream toile and because the material was soooo thin I used an old placemat to back it. I just sewed the new material on top (I guess it's reversible now).
Now back to my china cabinet (which I'll take pictures of next week and post). Thanks for stopping by!
