Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  Every week it's getting harder and harder for me to come up with something for Show and Tell! I think I've shared just about everything in my home unless you want to see inside my drawers, closets and under my sink...trust me you don't! I'm only a neat with things that aren't behind closed doors!  I decided to share some table settings that I've shared before. Sometimes it's nice to see them all together in one post! So here they all are....




Ok, not a table but it is a table setting!




If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog. If your link has been removed, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting, or e-mail me with any questions.
Thank to all of you that join in every week!

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

Beautiful tablescapes Cindy. Since I'm wishing for warmer weather, my favorite is the one you have outside.

Bohemian said...

Lovely tablescapes... now for under that sink??? *winks* Believe it or not I'm the exact opposite... probably the most organized places of my Home are drawers, closets and cupboards! The rest is usually organized chaos... go figure... wonder what that all means?! *humnnnnnnnnn*

Hi Cindy, As long as you've been at this I can see why it might be hard to come up with something new. You didn't let us down though because I love seeing your dishes. I do believe I see my new blue dishes in a couple of your pictures! :)

Cindy, it's a delight to see all of these. You have a beautiful style. Thank you for hosting each week. ~ Sarah

Mikey said...

Thanks for hosting this each week! I have to say--I have that same bird on a finial and soup tureen! Ha! I need to start doing some tablescaping--I can't see the top of my kitchen or dining room table! I had a friend over and cooked dinner--and we had to sit on the floor at the coffee table! So embarrassing! Hopefully I'm ripping out my upper kitchen cabinets in the next month(ish) and installing some open shelving--that will give me soooo much more storage! Yay! I'm so glad you keep on bloging--your great style inspires me to keep making things better and to never settle for less while somewhat sticking to a budget. I've been a reader for about 4 years and am so glad that on that day so long ago I stumbled upon your blog!

Robyn said...

You NEVER cease to AMAZE me! I adore this table~! I'm just giddy in love with that clear turkey!

Terry said...

I love your place! How about showing off your bedroom again? I love the wall of plates? Do you have a master bathroom? Congrats on the hiking blog! I think we do want to see in your drawers, but mostly to see what other wonderful things you have! Thanks for continuing to host this weekly party!

Blue Ridge Altered Art said...

Your home and your pictures are such an inspiration to me. I found your blog over a year ago and went in every day to see all the beauty you showed right to the very beginning. Yours was the first blog I had ever seen. I had gone on line to look up shabby chic decorating and your site came up. I was hooked from that point on. It was because of your blog that I began one myself. Mostly to have a record for my children of the things in my home that belonged to their Great Grandparents and items that mean so much to me that I have acquired over the years. I truly enjoy to contiuously get inspiration from you. I have not had much time to do much to my house yet, but eventually it will be totally white with blue accents. Thanks for sharing your home with us. ~~Sherry~~

BEAUTIFUL place settings! I especially love the last pic you have of the soup, salad and wine tablescape w/the seashells, which looks to be outdoors. This makes me want summer to get here more than ever! : )

Elsie said...

Cindy I don't care how many times you put the same pics on here I could look at them forever. You take some of the best pics and
your tablescapes are beautiful.
Thanks for sharing and the inside
of your drawers and cabinets probably look like a lot of people who live in small spaces. You do what you have to do. Hope you and
Lauren have a wonderful weekend.
