The jumping off point for my tablescape today is the vintage curtain panel I'm using as a runner. I knew I would use these panels in just this way when I found them. Few patterns suggest a farmhouse of the thirties to me more than a classic fruit print. So I took it the rest of the way there for a morning table.
I love plain white dishes because of the freedom they lend to everything else you select for the table. Ironstone dinner plates lay the foundation, with vintage creamware bowls on top.
Daisies or mums seemed essential. And I have a single bloom placed in each of my new Cunard Steamship creamers from the same era.
A nostalgic pair of handworked dishtowels from my collection serve as napkins.
The variety and charm is endless. And they can be rescued for such a small investment.
How would you like to hand select your own egg for breakfast? It's a luxury I can enjoy every day courtesy of Ruckus, Chex, and X, our resident hens.
I find eggs grouped together as cheerful as flowers.
Any number of the elements of this table can be a conversation starter. But I would choose the linen, of course, because it is a natural storyteller.
Besides being comodious, which I love in a napkin, these towels are soft and worn and carry a character beyond mere decoration.
This one has been patched and darned, and speaks of a time when the smallest and simplest things held their value a very long time.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a cheery day!
Ciao! for now!
