The purple and gold dish is an old treasure from my Grandma T., and so are the candle holders.
The tablecloth is the 75-year-old quilt that my Great Grandma Johnson made in Arkansas. She then gave it to my Grandma and Grandpa Johnson as a wedding present. The front chairs were Uncle John and Aunt Signa's.
The hand painted tulip glasses were given to us as a wedding gift by friends Kathy and John. Do your recognize my hand painted wine bottle candle holders?
Kari and Kristin gave us the lead crystal water goblets. The stainless silverware is 30 years old and we use it as our everyday stuff. It is Community Stainless by Oneida, but I can't remember the pattern anymore. Deanna gave me the green teacup and saucer, and the others came from Grandma T. The napkins are really little tea towels that I bought from the dollar store today.
The only thing I regret is that one of the candles blew out and I didn't notice it. Oh, well. I am not feeling that much of a perfectionist to go back and redo everything. I've had a busy day. The table is still very beautiful, and I had fun experimenting with different lighting and camera settings. It was also fun to get my stuff out of the hutch and enjoy them again.
