Inspiration placemats came from Tuesday Morning, on clearance. I think these babies could go in many different directions. The direction I took was, well I'm not sure, If you think of a "name" leave it in the comment box! :)
I started bringing out the dishes and things, sitting them on the table and I thought it looked so pretty and the light was really nice...I started taking pictures.....*click*
I started setting the table...*click*
I was able to incorporate the pretty bottles I bought at Nell Hill's a few weeks ago, too.
Do those salad plates look familiar? I used the blue version in my "Ode to the Ocean" Tablescape. Those of you that commented that you bought the same plates at Pier 1, know that the set contained 2 blue and 2 green plates. The green was perfect with the placemats, and the silver related to the silverware. The Claremont dishes strike again! Little milk glass compotes with an apple complete the setting.
Candles, and a MG vase of Hydrangeas
Yep, still *clicking*!
Well, that is the end of another tablescape!
Thank you again to Susan for hosting!

Do you remember this arrangement? I used it for the centerpiece of my Citrus Sorbet tablescape a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty tall and airy, the kind of work I usually do...but I was inspired to try something a little different. So for this Met Monday I wanted to morph a sizable arrangement into a low, roundie, moundie (yes, I do make up my own words!:)
I've had these cylinder vases, you've seen them before too...
I nested the smaller vase into the larger one like this:
It created a "pocket", for lack of better word, of 1/2" or so.
And then guess what? I found artificial lemon slices!!! I had not seen these before, and you'll never believe where I got them! Joann's Fabric and crafts, I know, right?
It took six bags; a total of 26 slices, and they were only $3.99, and I used a coupon too! Now this may have been my imagination....but I swear they smelled lemony! :)
I filled the vase up with the lemon slices all the way to the top.....
Here it is! I'm still enamored with yellow and orange, even though I had a hard time putting away the turquoise from last Thursday, I love that color pallet too...things don't stay the same around here for long...my taste ebb and flow like the tides!
This is perfect for summer...I think I'll keep it around for a while (maybe:)Thanks for visiting, and thanks again Susan!
Happy Metamorphosis Monday! Michelle
