I love the mix of old dishes and organics. I made a charger from a craft product and tied on Bittersweet with simple white string.
After the old table top was sanded and waxed I added the first layer of my table cloth...a European linen sack.
The next layer is more vintage linen...this time a little more frilly. A vintage dresser scarf with crocheted edges does the trick for me.
Im framing up the centerpiece with an old frame. Some things just never get old.
The grapevine basket of gourds slips right in. A match made in heaven.
Each setting includes a charger, a mix of old Transferware and Majolica, a gift to take home, and vintage napkins. And of course there is a wine glass in the mix!
Love the old salt cellars in water softener salt!
Time to eat. Oops...I guess Ill have to cook a turkey!

I'm planning a small and cozy gathering for Thanksgiving this year...so I gathered up a few odds and ends, both old and new and created a table setting from scraps about the house!
