Hello sweet friends!
Alejandro and I are alone again with only our company, although taking care of children is not easy, it's so fulfilling, specially this time we have noticed how our darlings have grown up and mature somewhat. We had a great time together and did so many things they liked. The little girls cried so much when we took them and their mother to the airport, we all ended up crying, lol...
This tablescape is inspired on my new, lovely crocheted small round tablecloth. I'm very excited with it, as in a way it's an unexpected find, as I had forgotten about it for soo long! I will explain! "I was fixing the guest rooms for the girls's visit.. so I looked around closets, looking for bed linens and found some small carton boxes I have there and came across this small round tablecloth, 'half way done,' and with extra yarn; because I had a cleaning girl twelve years ago, who was crocheting it for me and than one good day she decided to emigrate to the USA and left it unfinished. Than, after I found it a friend told me of a lady that would finish it for me; I contacted her and she just delivered it, all finished beautifully, last Friday. I can't believe how lovely it turned out, I love it! Hope you like it too. Here goes..
|She did a wonderful job! I might have her make me another larger one in the future. I have a soft spot for hand crocheted tablecloths, as I have always seen them in my family for ever!|
|The pattern is of small stars in three light shades, I saw the pattern in some magazine twelve years ago and it caught my eye. The shades go from 'white, ivory to beige'.|
|The antique ivory china with flowers was my dear Mil's from her wedding. I used the ivory lace-reticulated chargers to keep a soft and feminine table. The flatware is also ivory.|
|The dinner plate|
|Dinner plate and salad plate.|
|The stack of dishes, with charger, dinner, salad and soup plates.|
|Here you can appreciate the three shades of the small stars.|
|The French crystal stems were my Mil's as well.|
|I love my indoor greens, although the plant in the flowered pot has lovely small red flowers, when in season, but I'm sure it'll bloom soon enough.|
|I love the stars in the table topper.|
|I also used as centerpiece this pretty vintage, French young soldier I bought a few years ago, holding a bowl with lid. The antique shop owner called it the "antique marmalade bowl," ha!|
|I hope you liked my new hand-crochet tablecloth, as like I explained before, it was so unexpected, like a new find for me!|
Thank you so much lovely friends for your comments, as they always make my day!
