Dreaming of Spring...

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without words,
And never stops at all

Emily Dickinson

I designed a similar tablescape using these same three "Tweet" Birdhouses, A Little Cloche with a birds nest inside, ceramic crackled birds; sitting on grapevine nests and a few other birds scattered about last year. Since I needed a little pick me up I thought a table set for spring was in order!

The table cloth and napkins where purchased at Home Goods. They are Ralph Lauren in yellow and blue floral. The napkin rings are a pretty blue, with jewel like circles, I thought they were pretty and added whimsy to the table. The round yellow place mats were a purchased from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I like how the place mat makes the plates stand out from the floral table cloth. The wine glasses; also from Home Goods are Palm. The White ironstone plates are from JC Penney. I really love the cute blue and white polka dot plates with the little bead trim. I picked them up at Home Goods, and had to have them along with the square polka dot bowls to match! They are the sweetest set of dishes; I have really enjoyed using them in many ways.

I hope you enjoyed my "Dreaming of Spring" table as much as I enjoyed designing it. I hope your day is filled with wonder!

Where ever you may be I hope you have a wonderful day
