Today we are having blue for our table settings, as I have had some
really good thrifty finds in blue
For dinner we are having fish. I bought these fish knives and forks
from Ebay, a couple of years ago, a set of 6 of each plus 2 sets of coffee spoons, $6.50
I know it wasn't enough to pay,
but the same thing has happened to me when I have listed on Ebay
It's the chance you take.
The plates are only a set of 2 dinner and 2 bread and butter plates
They belonged to my DIL's mother.
I have had these blue stemmed glasses for about 40yrs
Do you remember glassware parties,(like Tupperware)?
Well I bought them at one of those. I bought 8 at $1.60 each
I didn't have much money at the time and thought it was a fortune
Am I glad now though.
Smiley little pansies.
I love yellow with blue
The maiden hair fern is growing wild in our garden
I made these white fabric roses and attached them to a circle of cotton fabric
then slipped them over my plain, white, china napkin rings.
I always make them removable, so I can change whenever I want a different look.
They even look nice in a silver bowl
I'm using my vintage damask table cloth, I bought last year in
the charity shop for only a few dollars.
This is the stamp on the plates
This weeks thrifty find
vintage tablecloth only $1 and had never been used
until today for our morning tea and lunch.
For lunch we are having a green rocket salad, picked fresh
from our garden with lentil rissoles.
I don't fry the rissoles in lots of oil, I just spray the pan with oil
I serve them with yoghurt,cucumber dip.
I just chop up a little cucumber and sprinkle with ground garlic
Then mix it with some natural yoghurt.
This is lovely with potato mash too.
For morning tea, honey/oat biscuits and mint,ginger tea
of cause it has to be in pretty china cups.
