Zen Butterflies

I love Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.  I always find such inspiring tables. And new ways to remix the dishes I have.  Please jump over here to see what others are posting.




I wanted to use the butterfly butter and jam dishes in a different way.  This week I used them as chopstick rests. Truth be told, that's what I thought they were when we bought them as the estate sale was a house full of Japanese items (Kimono on the wall!)



I wanted it to be a very simple zen style table.  No extra frou-frou this time.





Hope you enjoyed this simple table.
