A Few Vintage Pieces

Come join me on the deck for a quiet moment accented with some lovely old pieces.  I started with a beautiful tablecloth on clearance from Macy's.  Please forgive me for not ironing it.     
Crystal water glasses are Dublin by Shannon.  The wine glasses are also Shannon, but I don't know the pattern name.  They were a gift from a dear friend.    
The placemats and napkins were a gift from my MIL.  She bought them in Austria years ago and she was so generous to gift them to me. The dishes were also a Christmas surprise from my MIL.  You can read about that  HERE.  They are 1940 Bavarian and the pattern is Wild Flower. 

The silver plate flatware comes from a set that my sweet husband brought home when a client was going throw them away.  He grabbed them with plans them to use for target practice!  I rescued them as soon as I saw them.  The pattern is Fashion Lane by Alvin. 
The candle sticks are from French Bleu Vintage.  It's one of my favorite places to browse.

The vase is from the Queen of Hearts in Atlanta.  The blooms are Endless Summer hydrangeas.
I realized while a was running trying to take photos between the bright sun and the clouds, that I had forgotten the blue birds so I added them for the last few shots. 

 I so appreciate your visit and comments. Thanks for joining me, I will be joining the following parties:

Cinco de Mayo!

Hope you all celebrated in style!  

Glass ladybugs from the Glass Museum in Tacoma, WA. 
The hand woven flax runner is from Austria.  It was purchased in Round Top, TX.  I love the texture it adds. 
Vintage planters collected over the years.  

Rooster and candle holders from Hobby Lobby.  Twisted Rosemary branches also add to the texture on the table.
