Red, Black and White

Last week my mom and I went exploring. Okay, we were checking out all the new little resale shops that have popped up around us. I am always amazed how these little stores can stay in business. Well, actually they don't. They try and then they kind of just disappear after a while.

The first 2 that we stopped at we didn't buy anything. Way too expensive. The third one I did find a couple of little treasures.

I found 3 vintage milk glass coffee cups. This is my first milk glass cups so, I was excited to find them.



And the other thing I found was this vintage red and white tablecloth with little cups and silverware images on it. I have been looking for a vintage red and white tablecloth for a very long time. It was marked $3.00. When I looked at it I noticed a torn area along one edge of it. I showed the sales person and asked it she could discount it any more. She sold it to me for $1.75.



So, this post started as my post for Rednesday and White Wednesday because I got these two perfect items to show. And then I thought well I really wanted to include it in Vintage Thingie Thursday as well. Okay, that will work.

So, I took the tablecloth outside to put it over the patio table to take pictures to show you all. Then I added the white milk glass cups. So far, so good right? Well, then the mail arrived and I got this awesome beautiful vintage napkin from our lovely hostess Sue that matched a tray I showed a few weeks ago for Rednesday and Vintage Thingie Thursday. Isn't it amazing the wonderful people we meet online? I never knew that was going to happen when I started this little blog over a year ago. Through blogging, we are able to meet awesome people from all over the globe. It really is still very amazing to me. But, I am so grateful to have met you all! Okay, enough of that. LOL Here is the tray.



And here is the vintage napkin Sue sent me. Isn't it perfect! Thank you again Sue!! I just love it!



So, now I really wanted to show the tray with this awesome napkin as well. As I looked at the patio table with all these fun new to me items on it, I thought I might as well create a tablescape out of all it! Don't ya just love the whole "snowball" effect? LOL

So, here we go. Another major thrift store, resale shop, flea market, yard sale,
Dollar Store and even some brand new pieces. Of course those last things were bought at clearance prices. In other words, this is a normal Diann mixed up tablescape!



I started, of course with the vintage tablecloth. Then I added these white with black scrolly design edged plates that I got at the Dollar Tree. My Dollar Tree still has a few of these left.



Then I added these beautiful Royal Stafford black and white transferware salad plates. I got these at TJ Maxx clearanced for $1.00 a piece.



Next the simple white saucers from the set of dishes I bought ages ago from Salvation Army.



Then to top it off, I added a red vintage Pyrex bowl that I found at a flea market last year sometime.



I used the gold and white clear Lily of the Valley glasses that I have shown you before. I have 3 different sizes of this pattern and 4 of each of them. I got them last year at a yard sale (I think).



I added a couple of yard sale find glass pieces and a candle.



A flea market red and white Pyrex oval dish with a milk glass vase.



I used my everyday Johnson Bros. Ironstone saucers under the new vintage milk glass cups.



Then I just threw the coffee tray together using my fun vintage metal tray and Sue's fun vintage napkin. I added a vintage black and gold glass Pyrex carafe.I placed the coffee pot on a square retro white and gold design glass plate. I have had this forever. My two daiquiri crystal candlesticks. A vintage milk glass creamer and sugar. And the little white frosted glass votive holder with bling on it, I used to hold the spoons for coffee. I just got this little holder last week at Hobby Lobby. It was clearanced to $1.23.



So, what started out as just showing a couple of new to me finds, turned into this fun retro looking outdoor table. And of course, as normal for me, a tablescape for under $15.00.






















So, I am joining these awesome blog parties his week:

  17. Oh Diann, could it be that this is my favorite tablesetting of yours? I think it might be! I'm happy to see that tray worked in, and I can't believe that those plates are from Dollar Tree! I don't think mine has those. They sure do go perfectly with those Stafford plates. It's like a verrry elegant picnic!
    Happy REDnesday and White Wednesday!
