About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Another French Chef Tablescape

The very day after I posted my last French chef tablescape, I stopped in at Tuesday Morning and found some beautiful chef themed salad plates. Wow, what a find! They came four plates to a set and each plate portrays a different chef. Sorry for the washed out look of the photos.... I think it's time for a new camera with higher megapixels. You can click on the photos to see more detail. The plates coordinate well with my brown and cream striped Fitz and Floyd china and the black glass chargers that I snapped up for $1.50 each on clearance at Hobby Lobby, don't you think? Please excuse the box of teacher stuff on the floor in the background that needs to go to school with me. Today was my first day back and my 32nd "first day of school." It's hard to believe I've been working that many years...
These chefs must moonlight as jugglers.....

Here's another one.............

Anyone up for a cup of coffee after dinner?

A little wine keeps the whining at bay............

Stay tuned for next week............... I'm going to do a little research and bring out my great aunt's silverplate to share with you. Happy Tablescape Thursday!

  6. Your plates are too cute! Nice job.

  7. Your french chefs are adorably cute! Fun table setting.

  9. Love those chef plates, so cheerful!

  10. Hi Terri, just discovered your blog. Pretty tablescape and darling chef plates!


  11. The search for dishes and the planning is half the fun, so I am sure you will do many more French tablescapes with these dishes! Can't wait to see the silverplate!

  12. What a pretty and fun tablescape! Good luck with getting another school year under your belt. That is a long time to be teaching!

  13. Those plates sure are whimsical and cute! Is school already starting? My, the girls are long grown and I don't even notice anymore. My neighbor just retired from teaching a year ago. You must love what you do to do it that long!

  14. Darling dancing chefs - fun tablescape.

  15. Hi Terri,
    Love the whimsical plates. The black chargers really make everything pop! It's all nicely coordinated.

    Looking forward to seeing your great-aunt's silver!!!

  16. The chef plates are so cute!

    Good job!


  17. Your chef plates are adorable, but I'm sorry I can hardly comment on the tablescape because I was so distracted by your beautiful dining furniture!
    I am so coveting your china cabinet and your sideboard, they are so unique and so, so beautiful! The wood is stunning, it is so warm and beautiful, and the drawer pulls too are fantastic!
    You do set a very nice table, but you don't have to bother with those surroundings if I'm sitting there, I will be in awe of your furniture too much to notice what I'm eating or what I'm eating off of! Absolutely beautiful!
    All the best,


Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from y'all....
