HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT, TOO, ON TABLESCAPE TUESDAY....

FIRST...I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind and wise words left for me regarding my sister*in*law, Marilee...
I appreciate all the kindness you have shown and I KNEW you would all
understand why I was so sad....
THANK YOU !
Thanks once again to SUSAN for hosting TABLESCAPE TUESDAY
Please stop by, tell her hello and visit all the other fabulous tablescapes....


I've not shown my octagon shaped, creme dishes to you yet.....


Excuse me, but have you noticed I seem to have a bottle of WILD WINES WINE on my table at all times? OH, MY.....
actually we DO NOT drink all that much wine. In reality, we have a glass most evenings with our dinner....
i promise !!!!
all those wine corks you see at times...I ordered a hugh box of them off EBAY.
Daughter, daughter in law and myself wanted some to look COOL......
promise !!!
and daughter in law is making the neatest bulletin board with hers.....


I have had these dishes forever and ever, Amen...
many have been broken over the years but I do find a piece every now and then at thrift shops.

I have always loved the creamy color of them..... and I dearly love this French Country tablecloth that is, in REAL LIFE, a king sized sheet, thrifted, at that...works perfectly!!
*************************************************
Well, ladies, I have shown you just about all of my dishes now so I won't be doing but about one more TABLESCAPE TUESDAY.....
...at least until I can get some new dishes...which isn't going to happen any time soon unless I find a thrifty set somewhere. And, believe me,
I am ALWAYS on the look-out for more pretty dishes.. I sure could use some BLACK AND WHITE....OH, YEAH, BABY!!
***********************************
OOOOO.......

I leave you with this question......


ever had fresh, warm POUND CAKE........
smeared with BUTTER for BREAKFAST ??

OH, HONEY !!

Beverly said...

BJ, everything you do is lovely. Always.

Jeanne passed a "Boo-ed" to me, and I am passing it to you. Please come by my post today to pick it up, and them pass it along to anyone you want to share Halloween fun with.

Stacey said...

Beautiful. Love the tablecloth.

By the way, I think my rear end is growing just looking at the pound cake & butter!!

Come visit me with a recipe if you can. :)

Smilingsal said...

Just beautiful as usual. No, I've never had a breakfast like that. BJ, you've been Boo-ed! Come find out what that means. :-O

Carrie said...

The pound ccake sounds delightful, but I've just received medical advice to cut down on my intake of sweets! Sigh...

Shelia said...

Morning, BJ! Oh, how I love those beautiful dishes! You just don't know how to anything but the right way!! lol That is a smart thing to do, using a sheet for a tablecloth. I used to do that at my children's birthday parties. That was just so my nice tablecloths wouldn't get messed up! Now I'm gonna be on the lookout for some that I can use with my pretty dishes!
Yummo on the warm pound cake with butter!! That a beautiful dish it's on, too.
Oh, BJ, you're just the sweetest one. I used to get such a kick out of you on RMS. I remember you posting your dinner one night and making me so hungry. I love your fun way of life, so keep it up. You've honored me today with your compliments. I'm gonna hold on to 'em all day long!!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, Love your dishes and unlike my post I prefer wine to any other drink. It is nice to have a little wine and it is usually a glass before dinner.

Back to your tablescape the tablecloth/sheet is awesome. We have so many resources from our thrift stores. I just love a bargain. Especially with todays financial scares.

Come over, it is snowing here. I posted my flowers bed. sigh.

Hugs...Jeanne

Virginia said...

Beutiful tablescape BJ and great idea... using a sheet for a tablecloth.
Take care, Virginia

Brenda said...

Girl Pound cake is a have to here..about like cornbread. We can't do without it. I butter anything that will hold it hehe.
You'll know there is nothing like butter!
I heat my muffins and butter them too.this coming from a girl that my mom said she would catch in the fridge eating butter off a spoon when little.

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Love those creamy plates. They are perfect for mixing and matching as well as standing on there own! And your table cloth made from a sheet!! P E R F E C T~~

Chris said...

Well, BJ, another beautiful table, I don't how all you ladies can do so many different settings. I could do maybe two. LOL.

Hugs,
Chris

Suzy said...

BJ,
nice like always. Please stop by I have a nice award for you.

Have a sweet day. Suzy

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Love those dishes! They're versatile enough to make many different tables out of. *hint hint*

I multi-task linens for my tables too. I've used quilts, bedspreads, sheets, curtains as runners...if it's in the color I need, then it's open game!

beddow said...

I have loved seeing all your tablescapes. If I ever get my house back in order I will have to do some for myself. This kitchen project is taking a while as they always seem too.

Picket said...

Morning BJ...I love the shape of those pretty dishes...I was trying to do some back reading..oh girl I read about your sweet Marilee with tears welling up in my eyes and then when you said you went to Wal-Mart and bought a package of nylon panties tears started pouring down my face...oh sis that sounds like something I would do....that was beautiful...it's funny how the simplest things remind us of such beautiful and loving memories...have a great day sis...love you!

ellen b said...

Hi BJ,
I'm glad you ended with that poundcake cuz it's a little too early for wine here :0)
Love the bold tablecloth with your white dinnerware. Beautiful...

nikkicrumpet said...

You're out of dishes!! Wow I never thought I'd see the day! Heck you can borrow the plates (you inspired me to buy) hanging over my guest bedroom bed. They don't match but I just know you'd come up with something marvelous..and they're even black and white!! Have a glorious day my friend!

Bo said...

Hi BJ...I think our 'puters are somehow related too...Mine has been hexing me for the past couple of days...so frustrating! Anyway, I want that tablecloth/sheet...
haha. I also use a K-sheet sometimes on the table. Hugs, Bo

salmagundi said...

Loved your creamy dishes. That is a great color!! I haven't had pound cake with butter for breakfast; but when we first got married, Bob wanted hot chocolate cake (no frosting needed) smothered with butter. It is pretty yummy! Sally

CIELO said...

Oh BJ I love those creme dishes; they're gorgeous... and so perfect for an elegant Christmas table.... I read the post about Marilee, and I'm adding my sincere sympathy to the rests already given.... may Gob be with you and yours....

Lots of hugs from all of us who love you.

Julie said...

I love your table scape! It has an Italian look to it. The witch on your header is adorable too. Makes me wish I had a front porch.

Happy To Be said...

Oh BJ your table looks great girl very pretty..thanks for sharing..hugs and smiles Gloria

Chris said...

BJ, the ruby red will be beautiful, one of my SIL had a bunch of those dishes, she had parties at her house, I think, to help her get more of the pieces. I couldn't afford them though. LOL

Hugs,
Chris

Bobbi Jo said...

The pictures of tablescapes are so pretty! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

laurie said...

That sheet is just a fantastic idea. It makes such a pretty tablecloth, and I'll bet it's really easier to launder than most tablecloths (no ironing?). I'm going to start looking at sheets in a different way. Thanks for this fabulous idea. laurie

Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) said...

Oh, you would have to torture me right there at the end!!! Ummmm, pound cake with butter! Love your cream dishes...just lovely! Ok, since we are running out of dishes, we have to start mixing our sets together to create new tablescapes! :-) I have 3 sets left...but I cheated and posted Lynne's tablescapes 3 times, otherwise I'd be out, too! :-)

Sandi McBride said...

Okay BJ, wheres the pound cake? I 'd like my slice on any one of these lovely settings...great post!
Sandi

ksarra said...

Hi B, I thought of you today when I went to the Dollar Tree. I was just glancing down the aisles when something sparkly caught my eye. So I slowly backed my buggy up to see and there for $1 each were the prettiest cut glass plates. I know I will find some use for them over the holidays. I may even try to make a pedestal cake plate like Cindy's, using a glass candlestick, some glue and one of these plates.

imjacobsmom said...

You set a beautiful table - wind and all. And warm pound cake - Mmmmm! Now I am craving it! ~ Robyn

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Oh you got my favorite color of dishes on here today. Love them BJ.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Those plates are so simple and elegant. I love them with the red tablecloth! This setting looks warm and rich and so fallish! Lovely!

Jan Parrish said...

B J - Great blog. Yes, I am voting for McCain/Palin. Happy Pink October!

Art by Ronda Juniper Ray said...

mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good! Warm ANYTHING smeared with sweet cream butter for breakfast! Or lunch....or dinner....

It's all about the butter, now isn't it?

However, I have found that as each year creeps by, all that butter tends to collect in unsightly places, so I now recommend gluing such indulgences directly to your butt and gut -- saves wear and tear on your digestive system.
:-D

Warmly, Ronda

Glenda said...

Very neat idea of using the sheet as a table covering.
Pound cake sounds scrumptious. I have some sour cream that needs to be used up. Maybe I should use it in a pound cake. Thanks so much for the inspiration of what to do with it.
