Big Black Dog: Tablescape Thursday **There she blows

July 15, 2009

Tablescape Thursday **There she blows




I had big plans for tonight's dinner. On the agenda was a light dinner of salad and freshly baked bread and I thought it would be wonderful to eat outside on our porch. But as soon as I started setting up my small bistro table I knew it was never going happen.

Even though it was a perfectly gorgeous day today, warm and clear blue sky, it was so windy! Geesh, I could hardly hang my wash out! When I finally did get everything hung, the laundry was really flying around and sometimes it was completely horizontal! Almost as soon as I got everything hung, it was dry and not a wrinkle in sight!

Pretty table, Michelle.

The scent of laundry, dried in open air, is fabulous!

I could just bury my face in laundry dried on the line. Mmmmm. We had a nasty wind come through here on Sunday. Almost ruined my dinner plans.
Your table looks very inviting. The crochet cloth? Did you do it, or maybe a family piece?

I love your blue dishes. Looks just right for a light supper. I also love to hang clothes (especially sheets) out to dry in the summer. I haven't had much of a chance to do that this summer. Maybe this week! The smell of air dried sheets still remind me of when I was little.

Thanks for stopping by Rock Candy. Love to see clothes flying in the breeze. So country, so vintage, so wonderful.
Nice intimate table for a cozy snack and that strawberry salad looks oh so delish!
