Beautiful Tablescape

I am so glad to be able to join Susan again at Between Naps On The Porch @http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com
Be sure to check my friend out and all the other lovely tablescapes. I did not do a tablescape this week due to my agenda being in "overflow".....but I did want to share my sisterinlove's beautiful table scape with you along with a mantle tablescape and a tea cart tablescape. Here is Shirley and her hubby Bobby Ray....doesn't she favor Beth Moore? A well known Bible study teacher???? 

She has some beautiful stuff as you will see.
As you can see in this picture a butter knife is laying on this thingy! I have no clue what that is officially called but if any of you do please tell me so I will know! I just think it is the neatest thing since slice bread!
Next is this mantle piece she has on the wall by her dining table. 

And then the tea cart.

Thanks for sharing my sisterinlove's tablescape with me!

Be Blessed. Cindy


  1. Oh I love that china pattern!! Yes she does have some beautiful things! Love the glassware and the knife rest. I do not have any of those, but I have some chopstick rests I got in Japan. Beautiful!!

  2. Your sister-in-law has some beautiful pieces, for sure. I love the black napkins with the rose napkin rings. The thingies the knives are resting on are simply called...knife rests. Those are beautiful. I've got some duck ones that I've yet to use for a tablescape. They are very practical.

  3. I am loving those green goblets! A lovely set of china and tablescape.

  4. Just beautiful,the color of those napkins is amazing.

  5. How very pretty! Old Country Roses is a favorite pattern of mine. I love it with the gold flatware and green glasses!
    And as the other commenter said, those are knife rests. I've been looking for vintage ones for ages! They are hard to come by; at least in sets!

  6. Love your tea set, is so beautiful.


  7. Hi Cindy, Oh how I love Old Country Roses, my mom collected it for years now, it makes such a beautiful table! And I love that teacart.
    hugs and blessings,

  8. I think it is called a knife rest, isn't it? Your sister in law sure has lots of beautiful things. Pretty everything esp. the tea set.....Christine
