Fresh As A Daisy

I gave my dining room a little makeover Sunday afternoon.
I used my sculptured daisy pottery by Poppy Trail.
Most of these pieces are 36 years old.
I have added a few pieces to the collection that I 
have found at flea markets & antique malls.
I put a silk daisy on each place setting.
I twisted the stems on this wooden spoon handle.
Extra pieces on the side table.
Can you see the sweet salt & pepper shakers in the bowl?
Here's a closeup.

Did any of my Okie friends get rain yesterday?
We missed it again!
These pop up rain showers are crazy weird!

Hope your Monday is a good start to a wonderful week!

Morning Carol,
What a charming, fresh and cute table. I have always loved those dishes and remember when they came out. Daisies are just such a happy flower (from you've got mail movie)
but I agree with Meg Ryan.
Nice touch of adding the daisies on top of the plates.
This is my first visit and enjoyed myself very much.
Blessings, Nellie

Melody said...

Morning Carol. Love the daisies. I may have to make a quick trip to Walmart to get some fresh. Love the dishes too. I went to an antique/flea market on Sunday in Alma, AR and they had tons of dishes. The whole place was full of every kind of dish you can imagine. Blessings, Melody

Those are the cutest dishes. Love the fresh daisy pattern and the fact that it is raised. I have never seen this pattern before.

I adore daisies, these dishes are so lovely. Great table, perfect for summer. We have had some much needed rain this week, with lots of lightening and thunder. It did cool things off a bit, but more heat next week. Visiting from SS at The Tablescaper. xo

I have a cousin that has the same dishes, and have always love them. They would be my next collection if I had room.
Stay cool!

Such pretty dishes. Great tablescape!

Bonnie said...

I came very close to selecting this same daisy pattern 41 years ago as wedding dishes. Instead I chose its cousin the zinnia pattern. I love how you angled the placemats and the accessories you used.
