It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! That means the one year anniversary of my blog is rapidly approaching. Since it's Seasonal Sunday at The Tablescaper and Sunday Favorites at Happy To Design, let's take a look back at how things started on my tabletop. This post originally appeared on December 1, 2009.
Welcome to Tabletop Time!
I collect dishes made by the Homer Laughlin China Company and vintage tablecloths and table accessories. In July 2009, I presented an exhibit at the conference of the Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association entitled "Tabletop Time." The exhibit featured placesettings that showcased my collections and offered some history of the wares. This blog is a followup to that exhibit to celebrate the holiday table.
Here are a few of my favorite things to welcome December: a vintage tablecloth, Riviera dinnerware, blue and pearlized Bakelite flatware and pine cone elves.
