Welcome to The Tablescaper.
If you’re a regular reader of The Tablescaper, you know that I’ve been embracing a month of BLUE.
In an effort to buy less and enjoy what I have, I resolved to make January a month of BLUE.
I love BLUE dishes and have an awful lot of them. (Side note: I planted these paper whites weeks ago in anticipation of this post, but they still haven’t bloomed. Close, but not quite there. Argh!)
As part of my effort to use what I have, I decided to dedicate January to BLUE.
Since I have a lot of blue dishes, that sounds like an easy challenge.
However, the real challenge was to myself, as I love change.
I love to vary my tablescapes.
Some are elaborate. And some are simple.
So to have all of my tablescapes for a month be of the same theme…
…that being BLUE, was a challenge to myself.
As I wind down my month of BLUE, I have to admit that this tablescape…
…doesn’t actually have a single thing from Italy, (albeit it’s name Azzurro Renaissance)
but to me it feels Italian.
Like an Italian Renaissance.
However, in a very non-renaissance way, I purchased these plates in an antique store in the Hamptons.
Clearly, these plates don’t have a prestigious past. Personally, I was a bit surprised at their lack of lineage but, I’m no snob.
The plates that pair with them best…
…are none other than by Gibson.
Along with one of my very first Dollar Store purchases.
It just goes to show…
..it doesn’t matter what your background is..
It just matters what you do with yourself.
I’m having a GIVE AWAY to celebrate my month of January BLUE ,which I’d love to have YOU win. It’s very easy. All that you have to do is:
- Go to my GIVE AWAY post and make a comment on my GIVE AWAY post telling us what you would do with the GIVEAWAY; and,
- Become (if you are not already one) a FOLLOWER.
Now that’s not bad. Pretty easy in fact. The winner will be announced this Sunday at Seasonal Sundays.
