Tablescape Thursday (and a free tea cart!)












I found this really cute tea cart out by the curb! When I got it home, all I did was paint the bottom weathered unpainted board white. I left the rest as-is and rolled it out to my little garden corner to go live with my other curb found garden furniture. I knew it would make a fun tablescape surface, so I dressed it up in blue and white. The blue willow teapot was a present from my husband one year for my birthday. I love blue willow china, it was what we almost always used everyday when I was growing up, it holds found memories.
The just wanted to thank Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for hostessing Tablescape Thursday. Please click on the link to visit her blog and view all of the lovely and talented tablescapes! :O)

Hi,
I see a blue and white theme emerging from blogland and yours is lovely. Your tea cart is the perfect setting for a perfect tablescape.

You are one lucky girl to have scored such a fabulous tea cart. And it looks perfect with the Blue Willow. I need to find where my Blue Willow (um, I mean my hubby's) so that I can use it for a tablescape. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos & I better go searching for my plates now.
