Chintz Tea Table

Hello again! It's time again for Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I have loved checking out as many tables as possible each week. Such lovely ideas. I've also had fun putting together my own tables. Enjoy!




You won't believe it, but I found this Johnson Bros. Rose Chintz china at a garage sale. A Garage Sale!! Can you believe it? Just sitting there on the table with all the cheap looking table decorations and what-nots. Three teacups, two saucers, two dessert plates, four square salad plates and three dinner plates.

Wait for it....$15!



Sure there are a few chips on the backs. And a little fading of the blue. But I love them and they had to come home with me.



Again, tablecloth from Damascus, Syria.



Votive holders are Partylite.






I hope you've enjoyed seeing my new find in action. Never thought I'd find real Chintz here in the Big Valley. Check out the rest of the tablescapes.
