Remember the other day when I asked you
Well, I had to censor some of your answers.
I thought a
DOZEN RED ROSES
deserved a table set using
and Ruby (or Cranberry)Thumbprint glasses.
I have a mix and match of pieces.
I got many of them when I helped my friend's,
Tom & Ruth, get their house ready for sale here.
Ruth has always been a collector of many things
and I was lucky enough to get the pieces
of red transferware that she had.
I combined them with the few pieces I had
to set this table.
The candlesticks are sterling silver and belonged
to Grandmother Clara.
The vase in the center is crystal
from Poland and a gift
from a friend when she moved away.
It belonged to her mother.

The clear glass candle holders were a gift
from my son-in-law for Christmas.
There were a few special pieces like the gravy boat.
Another shot overall.
And this shows the chandelier
and the built in hutches
that flank the fireplace.
Well, hubby is out of town
so no dinner party tonight.

My three granddaughters
got this for me for Christmas.

You know the old saying-
While the CAT'S away the MOUSE will play.
I could just go WILD & CRAZY, couldn't I?
My friend, Jettie, posted something to help me get
started with the CRAZY part!
I sent for TWO starter kits.
If ONE is good TWO must be better, right?
