Simple and Clean

The house always looks so bare when all the holiday decorations are gone.  I wanted to do something to perk up the dining room, but after all the glitz and glitter, it had to be simple and clean.  
The hand crocheted white runner seemed perfect for the vintage look that emerged. 

The funky chickens had to come out and play.
 White swirl charger - Pier 1
Queen's Calico - Home Goods
Johnson Bros square salad - Ebay
White flatware - Walmart
Stripped glassware - Old Time Pottery
Blue placemat - Don't remember where :)

  I love these white candelabras and use them often.  The seemed perfect for this vintage looking table.   
Blue stripe napkins echo the glassware.  

We have had some frigid days in TN this past week, but I know it's been much worse in other parts of the country.  I hope your week is warm and cozy.  


  1. Dianne, I love your table. That calico china is SO pretty, and I like the blue and white palette of the tablescape. You always do a good job on your 'scapes.

  2. Hi Dianne!
    Your table is simply gorgeous and I adore those calico transferware dishes. I love your white centerpiece candles with the adorable chickens.
    Love it all!

  3. Love the look you put together! I've always admired calico prints. The funky chickens and the lace runner are perfect with the dishes. We were blessed with about 12" of snow the end of last week- ugh! Stay warm :-)

  4. Lovely, lovely, lovely! Your crocheted runner is spectacular and I love your "funky chickens". I'm heading to HomeGoods today to see if those calico dishes are still around! I'll even take 4 salad plates only. Thank you for sharing! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  5. Dianne, your table is refreshing. I adore the calico dishes. I have a few pieces in this pattern. Would love to add more. Guess I need to check Home Goods. Cold and wet here too, but no snow. Stay warm and cozy.

  6. Love the blue and white!
