I'm linking with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her 100th Tablescape Thursday. Congratulations, Susan. I've met so many great people through TT and seen a lot of great ideas. Thank you!
I made scones from scratch (recipe here) and decided on blueberries and raspberries and bosc pears. These are all native to some part of California. It's lovely to live in a state where so much is produced. However, the pictures don't tell that it was already 85 degrees F outside. Hopefully it won't reach 104 like last weekend.
I placed an antique quilt on the lawn, piled several pillows and laid out the picnic goodies. That's chilled lemon water in the carafe from Princess House (about 25 years old!).
I purchased the silver candlestick at a "garage sale" in Stockton about a month ago. The garage sale seemed more like a boutique sale of items you'd see in the after pictures of home blogs: painted furniture, stacks of linens, a little chandelier. High priced items for a bargain hunter.
This is the picnic basket and it's contents: 2 knives, 2 spoons, 2 forks, 2 Martha Stewart napkins, 2 plastic plates, and 2 plastic bowls. (It's for sale if anyone is interested)
Enjoy the day.
