Don't you Love Sunflowers?

Sunflowers are beautiful....They remind of summer.....So cheerful and colorful.
I got the dishes at Safeway on sale.  The cute little sunflower salad plates are so fun and the bowls add some pop.  I love their edges.  I kept waiting for them to go on sale....yea!  Finally.



I won these glasses from the Giveaway at Rainey's blog, The Project Table  www.theprojecttable.blogspot.com
Be sure to visit her blog and check out her fabulous recipes.

I love these glasses...They are quite colorful. They are blown glass.

  12. I've never met a sunflower that I didn't love! I frequent the farmers markets just to buy the sunflowers, and maybe a few vegetables ;o) You have a lovely breakfast room.

  15. Hi Linda...I saw that you started following me, and so I popped over to visit you. What a great blog! I am now following you too!

    You have a beautiful home. I like your design style. I love to decorate too...and I enjoy blogs with decorating ideas, and pretty rooms to look at.

    I can't believe you are a great-grandma! No way! I am Grandma to 11 here on earth and 3 in heaven...and our youngest grandson is 5 and the oldest is 22 next month! I guess in a few years I could be a great-grandma too.

    I see that you are a clogger. That must be fun...and it probably keeps you in shape. I just need to start my walking program again, and I would be satisfied. (:>)

    Looks like you enjoy cooking too, as I see you post recipes. So glad we have met here in blogland!

    Have a delightful day Linda!

  16. Sunflowers are great with this beautiful glass vase! The colors of orange and yellow create a sunny summer feel. The new goblets are so pretty and are perfect with the plates and bowls. We have Tom Thumb, part of Safeway, and I love their flowers and vases and china. Pretty setting for your tablescape!

    Thanks, Pam

  25. Linda, you certainly have put together a colorful tablescape that you'll be able to enjoy well into Fall. I passed a whole field of sunflowers the other day. I had my camera but I couldn't get close enough to get good pictures.

    Thanks for leaving the sweet comment on my Summer Garden post.

  27. Oh, my gosh....that stemware is bee-yoo-tee-ful! It's just gorgeous! It reminds me of the 1960s, and still it has a very contemporary look about it. Of course, I love the orange and yellow combo! They work perfectly with the dishes and florals you have assembled!!! Good thing you were able to wait those plates out to get them on sale! I like how you alternated the yellow and orange. Great recycling of the paper wedding flowers, too!
