Summertime...


Welcome to Tablescape Thursday!
It's always a treat to share our tables
and
see all the amazing creativity here in
Blogland.
 
My table this week is celebrating summer
and
a favorite spot to visit,
the beach.
 
Enjoy!


I love shells,
collecting them is a favorite hobby.
Each one is unique,
a beautiful work of nature.


This little guy adds a bit of whimsy to the crystal and silver.
Don't you think he makes things a little less fussy?

 
These napkins are also a new favorite.
 They are dainty and vintage treasures...I was happy to use them!
Thanks Mom!
 
 
Yep, this little guy just makes me smile.
It looks like he's ready for a little sip!
 
 
 

It's fun to put your favorites together, isn't it?

 
Thanks for stopping by!

Family Treasures...

Welcome Back to Sharlotte's Reflections!
It's Thursday
 so it's time to highlight our love
for all things related to:
dishes
and tables
and well, 
all things kitchen!
Today I'm sharing my niche and plate rack.

It's the only open cabinet in the kitchen
and
a place to change out for the seasons.
I've been hooked on red lately
and
since red is a great color for summer
I've had this vignette up for several weeks.
The platter was a great find (you can see it used in one of the header pictures)
but the rest of the items are cherished family treasures.
Let's take a closer look:
The waffle mold, mixer, cookbook, and rolling pin
were used in my maternal grandmother's kitchen.


The recipe box holds my paternal grandmother's recipes.
They are so neat ~ all handwritten and well loved.

That cute little rooster timer was a "new house" gift from my mother.
And guess what happens when time is up?
Yep...it crows!
Too cute!!

Now, below this open space is a plate rack to store dishes.


It's very handy during mealtimes and a great place to see all the patterns.

Thanks so much for dropping by and seeing a glimpse into my kitchen.

Summer Table

Happy Thursday everyone!
You know what that means...
it's time to share our tablescapes.
 
 
And I must admit,
sometimes they are just for fun.
 
 
Sometimes it takes just one thing to spark an idea...
 
 
and before you know it,
 
 
a tablescape is forming in your head!
 
 
 Welcome to my table...
it's set for two.
Enjoy!
 







 
Looking forward to seeing more tables over at
Drop by for loads of inspiration!
 
Thanks for dropping by...

Well Hello!

Gee Whiz!
I've had major computer/internet issues
and my posts have been basically called to a halt.
My browsing on Pinterest, Houzz, other blogs,
and basically everything else has been extremely limited.
It seems that when it's cloudy, sunny, stormy, or just plain hot
the internet is unreliable.
ugh...county living.
Then my faithful, trustworthy laptop was having "fever" issues.
Yep...it was really warm, ok hot.
My last laptop actually melted
AND
I didn't want to go through that again.
 
Enter: Lenovo
yep...new computer.
I had never heard of this label before...
my husband said it was the old IBM company...
I told him..."...I'm just thankful to be up and running again!"
Thanks Honey for the new computer!!
 
Now all this to say, I'm looking over things and things look a bit different.
I hope that all transfers
and I can figure out all the fancy buttons.
Keep your fingers crossed!
 
So, here we go again...
Sharlotte's Reflections is back online!
YIPPEE!
 
See you tomorrow with a new tablescape!
 
Sharlotte
