This morning I was in the basement going through my fabric bins in search of fabric to work on a quilt when I found this animal fabric on the bottom of one bin.
After a few minutes rummaging, I looked up and on a shelf right near the fabric bin I spotted one of my favorite vases -- an animal print glass purse.
It immediately occured to me that the vase would go nicely with the fabric. I rummaged back to the bottom of the bin and removed the fabric.
Don't you think they go nicely together?
I brought them upstairs thinking I could do a table with these two pieces as my inspiration.
As I was beginning to cut my quilt fabric, I was still thinking of the table I might design. I thought my butterscotch glass chargers would be great with the fabric. My original thought was to use my brown Hull plates.
After cutting a few more pieces of fabric, I decided that my black dinner plates would be better. I dropped everything and went to get a butterscoth charger and a black plate to see if I was correct.
Oh, I am liking it!
Unfortunately I am in the midst of doing my St. Patrick's Day table so I can't do anything with these until sometime later in the month.
Afraid that I would forget about this inspiration, I decided to blog it, thus preserving everything I thought about.
This is a spin off blog from my main one where I showcase only the different tablescapes I do.
"Tablescaping" to me just means creatively setting a dinner table or arranging a side table. I especially like to do it in the summer, so I can incorporate my flowers. I collect both dishes and mid-century tablecloths. I have enough of each that I can have a lot of fun playing. I rarely set a table with all the same china, glassware, etc. I like to mix and match (there really is no fun involved in simply setting out an expensive matched set of "good" china, is there?) I love the challenge of designing a unique table with just a little cash and a lot of creativity.
