Up Before the Chickens

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday!

Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her lovely tablescapes and other participants as well. It's so much fun to see what people put together to share.

I'm not really a morning person, so I needed something bright to help me wake up on these sleepy mornings. I've gotten used to sleeping in a bit, but now that school has begun, I really need to get up a lot earlier.

My class begins at 7:50 am. Can you believe that? So to make it on time, I really do need to get up before the chickens!

I put this table together with some of my favorite things...clocks, books, my feathered friends, and my new favorite color ~red.

Aren't these little ones cute? They look like the are snuggling together in their "nest".

These "glasses" were given to me, the wooden pedestal was a GW find, and the apples are fresh and ready to be enjoyed.

I made these napkin rings out of jute. Vintage Indie has a tutorial on how to make them, they are so quick and easy! The dishes are from Bed Bath and Beyond ~I love the basket weave pattern. See the little candle holder? It is a thrift store find! I love it! It is actually upside down, but I wanted it to hold a votive. It worked!

After a yummy breakfast and a cup of coffee, I'm ready to greet my students!

I hope you have enjoyed my tablescape.
Enjoy your Thursday!
