TABLETOP TUESDAY

After a half century of collecting flow blue, lusterware, yellowware and other antiques.....and now starting the tablescapes.....I have found that there is not one complete place setting!!!  Guess I am a mix and match person!!!  Who knew???

Today I have put together some flow blue on purple leaf place mats from BB&B, also purple napkins from there.....everything looks brown....couldn't get the colors right.....enjoy anyway!!!

The glasses and silver were my mom's, depression era....and she always had a round mirror for the centerpiece on the table.....this was her dining room set, and I am so grateful to have it!!!
The little sugar bowl and pitcher were made by my mom when she worked at a pottery during WWII, when all the men went off to war the women in the neighborhood went to work there........
Heisey crystal candle stick and cider pitcher, flow blue china, milk glass egg shakers, little round wooden eggplants from Pier I.....aren't they tooooo cute???

Where were they made??? I REALLY would like to look them up! I too love heisey, it is so wonderful to see the beautiful things we made right here in the USA... Have a wonderful week, Donna
