Cool Greens

I'm trying to beat the heat.
114 yesterday.
Same today.
Staying inside, drinking lots of water.

This morning I decided to do a tablescape in the kitchen with cooling green colors.
I found this vintage tablecloth at a garage sale a few years ago for $3.00.
It has a few holes & stains, but I don't mind.
cabbage pitcher
cabbage plates 
A vintage food keeper filled with pickled cucumbers & onions.
 Tastes cool & refreshing.
Get the recipe here.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Hope you're staying cool!

I am loving that tablecloth with your dishes. It's so summery and cheerful. I've got a couple of those vintage glass keepers and would love to have a few more. Sweet setting.

Hey Carol. I love my old table cloths with holes too. And here I thought I was the only one. I am staying in also. It is just as hot here in AR just a little ways from you. Take care.

Very pretty setting...I also have some vintage tablecloths (that I should use more often!!) and you have inspired me to use one tonight!
