Ken Scott Meets Nathalie Lete

 photo IMG_02042.jpg

I received this Ken Scott Leacock Bouillabaisse tablecloth for my birthday. I really love how it works with these Nathalie Lete plates from Anthropologie.

The napkin rings feature Maine sand dollars. The candle holders are Abingdon pottery. I'm amazed at the way the cloth brings together such a range of Fiesta colors: scarlet, heather, tangerine, marigold, rose and plum! Yes, I also have this cloth in the blue colorway. Don't ask me to choose which one I like best!

Apologies to Nathalie that Blogger will not take the code for the accent aigu.

Matisse Goldfish

This 1990's tablecloth draws inspiration from the Matisse goldfish series.

I love how the colors in the cloth work with Fiesta from that era.

The embossed fish saucers are not Homer Laughlin, but they work well with the tripod bowls.
