The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. - James A. Michener

Your Spode china plates are adorable and elegant at the same time. What a wonderful tablescape. I love your fisherman and what a great way to honor your husband!

I know it is wrong to covet thy neighbors things, but dang girl.. I so want to come play at your house! I have been wanting that Spode China for a while. It is so versatile this time of year. You did a bang up job!

Mimi said...

Wow, what a great table...my husband would love that china...the fishing creel makes a great centerpiece.

Sarah said...

Fabulous! I agree, Delores is a fantastic role model.
I love all the details of the plates, flatware, and your creel. Great job! ~ Sarah

First of all, I love your blog's header! Very inviting! Today's table is very clever, and I love the texture from the placemats, the net and the creel. My sister has the dog-patterned plates -- perfect for fall!

Your tablescape is stunning!! Just gorgeous, and full of fun and life and texture, and color, and I could go on and on and on!!! You always have the best tables - such inspiration. Thank you for sharing!

Your tablescape is great! I also was inspired by Vignette Designs' similar table, so now I have two to draw from! I have been searching for just the right candlesticks, pulled out the 'ole fisherman's net and have my other pieces in the back of my head when I get around to it.... so thank you! I love the "movement" your table exudes and your pewter goblets are absolutely PERFECT with all of it.

Hugs, Sherry

What a wonderful tablescape using your Woodland Spode! The faux antler flatware is perfect. I have to go check out Amazon this evening. I'm emailing your post to my daughter-in-love; they have the Woodland Spode, too. Thank you for shariing your charming design. Cherry Kay

Terrific tablescape! I love your stag handled flatware with the Spode plates and the pewter cups. Also love the fishing creel centerpiece. Very creative!

Bill said...

Hi Sharon,

I was stopping by to thank you for your visit and the kind comment you left, and I'm so glad I did. Your tables are really impressive! I wasted no time signing up to follow. You definitely have a gift for this (and beautiful china, crystal, silver, and accessories to work with!).

You couldn't have a better mentor than Delores. She's as nice as she is talented. I'll be looking forward to seeing your upcoming tablescapes.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend.

Bill

Another stunning table. Jeremy Fisher and of course Beatrix Potter would have loved to take a seat at your table!
