My Favorite Things. . .Vol. III

. . .melt into Spring!

Silver white winters that melt into springs. . .
                                                        these are a few of My Favorite Things!

Ah~h~h. . .
at last the wait is over and Spring has arrived On Crooked Creektt!

To honor its long awaited arrival,
I've set our Dining Room table with a monochromatic color scheme 
with creamy ivory, a hint of green, silversoft buttery yellow and white. 

Atop my soft buttery yellow Ralph Lauren tablecloth,
I've placed a creamy ivory sheer organza topper 
outlined in tulips of the same hue.

Using a blend of creamy ivory vintage and everyday white porcelain china
keeps a consistent, eye appealing tablescape 
for our Traditional Timeless Classic design.

Holding handmade tulip place cards are 
silver place card holders from Two's Company
Ironstone butter pats rest atop each place setting.

I've combined Parisian bee glasses with our everyday clear bubble glass. 
Newly purchased glass coasters feature various intricate silver designs.

I adore the soft linen napkins, with crocheted lace edges, from Pier 1!
Folded and tied simply with natural jute, they complement the textures
from both the tulip topper and the jute ribbons on the bunnies.

The simplistic centerpiece displays both sophistication and whimsy.

Creamy ivory wrought iron rabbits, 
combined with a creamy ivory vintage vase 
filled with faux soft buttery yellow florals and tulips 
and silvery zinc pots toppling over with Spanish moss and soft robin's eggs,
gently whisper Springs arrival On Crooked Creektt.

With 2015's Renewal On Crooked Creektt,
I'm embracing the soft buttery yellows of my 1970's Galley Style Kitchen
by blending harmoniously these two rooms 
with the first Spring tablescape of the year.

Silver white winters that melt into springs. . .
                                                         these are a few of My Favorite Things!

In 2015,
my hope for each of you is that you
*embrace change
*find joy
*pursue your passions.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining

Hi Pat, Your spring tables cape is lovely. I like those new coasters, and I notice that you tie your napkin "ring" ribbons with a flare. Have a nice weekend.

Hi Pat! OH, what a beautiful spring table you've set! The tablecloth is lovely and I love all of your pretty dishes and those little rabbits! Now I want to tell you how I appreciate your blogging friendship and your kind words to me. Yes, if we lived close to each other I'm sure we'd be friends! Good friends!
Bless you,
Shelia ;)

Oh Pat, I really love ALL of this. You make everything look vintage even when it's recent finds (the napkins, placecard holders - love). I love yellow, gray and white together, and the hints of green - really, I just love it all. So fine. Happy Spring.

Beautiful and elegant spring table, Pat. The linens are exquisite.
Can you believe the beautiful weather we have been is so nice to have windows and doors open, once again.
Have a wonderful week.

It is a very elegant and simply beautiful tablescape. Being a linen girls I certainly love yours. It's snowing cats and dogs here,,,wonder if it will ever end? A great combo of white, yellow and grey. Very pretty! Thanks for stopping by and returning a neighborly visit.

So beautiful Pat. I love the calm coolor palate and the flowers are perfect! I had what appears to be an identical creamy white flower vase I bought at an antique store when I was about 19 years old. Can you believe I sold it at a garage sale! I'm going to go to youtube and listen to that song now!!
