Hello sweet friends!
Oh my goodness, after so much and finally coming back from Victoria's birthday, I had a hectic week! I finally could end up my 4th. of July patriotic table setting!
Most of you who follow me know I'm American too and I so love the good old USA and here is my Red, White and Blue to celebrate it! I am also watching the American team in the Brazilian Soccer WC and rooting for the United States!
I have a giveaway for my three year of blogging that sweet and lovely Kathryn is sponsoring me at her fabulous blog and parties: THE DEDICATED HOUSE..... and I am so happy for getting to know you and always learning so much from you... such talented, generous and wonderful friends in blog land.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GIVEAWAY: I will also send the giveaway winner to any place in the world and the only thing I require is that you "follow my blog alone," which by the way, it's all the way at the end of my blog!
Don't follow me anywhere else, as I don't care to have my blog running around.... you can also come and comment about my patriotic table and about the giveaway, I bought for you on my vacation.
I hope you like my giveaway, and it's posted here in my 4th. of July tablescape and they are eight place mats for your Summer tables.
I love you all!
Happy 4th. of July everyone!
|Here are four place mats I'm giving away. The winner will receive eight!|
Now that I own dinnerware in blue and white transferware I decided to use them for the patriotic table, along with the red ones as well.
|The centerpiece is done in a tray, containing the red transferware teacups and teapot, flowers and American flag.|
|The giveaway are eight of these, 'straw-shawl,' hand made placemats for your summer tables.|
I wanted to pass through them ribbons in red and blue, but I've had more then two very hectic weeks!...next time I will.
|I used two of my Historic Colonial Scenes, this Liberty Blue was created for the 'Bicentenial by Enoch Wedgwood of Stafordshire, England.'|
|And two of the Royal Mail... both English Staffordshire dinner plates.|
|The red salad plate is 'Old England.'|
|The napkin rings are enamel ones in red, white and blue.|
I ended my place set with a cobalt blue mug for soup in each, which I bought them around 30 years ago in Pottery Barn in NYC, when they had such a tiny store.
|I think most 4th. of July settings are very whimsical, right?|
|I hope you like the placemats. Go to Kathryn at ANYTHING BLUE FRIDAY and MAKE it PRETTY MONDAY to enter my giveaway at: http://www.thededicatedhouse.com|

|The candle holders in red and blue were made back at our ceramic Factory. They are part of a complete pottery dinnerware.|
Thank you so much for entering the giveaway and for following my blog...that's all you have to do! If you have followed me before, thank you so much!
Thanks sweeties for your kind comments, as you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties!
HAPPY 4th. of JULY 2014!
