That Coffee Cloth

Rebecca and I are still having fun with some post-birthday double 'scapes. Last week we both used the glass fish plates. This week, we're 'scaping with a California Hand Prints coffee-themed cloth.

Now even though our fellow Divas are not 'scaping with us today, two of them had a hand in making this double 'scape happen. Elaine at Dishing With CaraFaye found this cloth and sold it at her table last year at the HLCCA conference in Nashville. Candy at The Litttle Round Table identified the scene as being Ethiopia through some excellent web research.

Now that you know the story, are you ready for some coffee?

This tabletop is a tribute to all things coffee, so I've accessorized with souvenirs from Mexico and Kenya as well as a variety of pouring and sipping vessels.

These capucchino mugs are embossed with some classic Fiesta shapes.

The Fiesta dinnerware is joined by a Hall Adele teapot in green lustre and Oneida Cityscape flatware.

I'm so happy that this cloth now resides in Seattle, that great coffee town. Do pop over to MyBecca's Vintage Tables to see its adventures in Seattle.

I'm inviting all the bloggers checking in for Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Through Life to enjoy a cup of coffee at my tabletop this week.


  1. I really, really like this 'scape... I didn't realize at first how many different colors you used on the table, and it all works so well together! I would never have thought of adding sunflower,and its the perfect accent! Nicely done!

  2. Yeah, after the story I do want to go for coffee at your beautiful tablesetting! I just adore your tablecloth and the colorful china, such happy table and so springie! Love it!!!

  3. Fabulous tablescape. I love all of your gorgeous linens and you always mix all the colors of your dishes together so creatively and beautifully. Gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
