"Rose Faeries" Tablescape
&
Pink Depression Glass
*
*
For "Tablescape Thursday" this week I did a tablescape which I named "Rose Faeries". If you would like to see that tablescape...just click here. After I posted the tablescape, I went back to play some more! Hehe! Ohhhh...isn't it fun getting to play with dishes? Hehe!
*
I recently received my Grandma's pink Depression Glass...a family heirloom that is such a precious treasure to me!!! In fact, I showed all the beautiful pieces that I received last week for Pink Saturday. If you would like to see all of my pink Depression Glass pieces...just click here.
*
I received one piece in particular...a 12 in. salver plate...done in the "American Sweetheart" pattern. After looking it, I thought that it would be perfect to use as a charger plate for the "Rose Faeries" place setting! Ohhh...it worked perfectly! I only have one of these beautiful 12 in. salver plates though...maybe I'll be able to find more...enough that I could actually use them for chargers!

"Rose Faeries" Tablescape...

"Rose Faeries" centerpiece.


*
I wanted to show you the place setting that I used for my "Rose Faeries" tablescape.
*
This is a set of china that I recently found on ebay. It's called Norway Rose and was manufactured by Cunningham & Pickett. I just love the pretty pink band that is on this china and the single pink rose in the center of the plate! I have 4 dinner plates and 6 salad/dessert plates in this pretty pattern...all for the low price of $11.98...not to bad!
*
The white salad/dessert plate comes from a set or ironstone dishes that I purchased with green stamps when I was 13 yrs. old. Yep...I've had a dish obsession for many years now! Hehe!
*
I used my white embossed chargers called "Lace"...that I found at JC Penneys. The pink damask dinner napkin was another treasure find from ebay...the pretty porcelain napkin rings were a gift from my late father-in-law.
*
*

*
Now It's Time to Play....
*

Pink Depression Glass
*
This is the 12 in. salver plate..."American Sweetheart" pattern. It was manufactured by Macbeth - Evans 1930-1937. I just love this pretty pink plate...the scrolled pattern looks so frenchy!!!
*

I added the Norway Rose china dinner plate...using the pink Depression Glass plate as a charger! Ohhhh...I do like this look!!!
*

I also received 5 pink Depression Glass tumblers. This pattern is called Mayfair Pink "Open Rose"...it was manufactured by Anchor Hocking in 1931-1937. I looked the tumblers up at China Replacements Ltd....and these little pink beauties sell for $53.99 each....WOWZER!!! But the real treasure is that they were my Grandma's!!!
*
I placed the tumbler on top of the Norway Rose salad/dessert plate.

The Norway Rose salad/dessert plate on top of the pink Depression Glass charger. Ohhhh...I was having so much fun playing!!!
*

~~Rose Faeries~~
*

Ahhh...here she is now! The little rose faerie made an appearance...do you see her resting upon the flowers?
*

The two little faerie figurines were passed down to me...they belonged to my late mother-in-law Mary Alice! Someday I will give them to her granddaughter Danielle Alice! Such sweet memories and precious family treasures!!!
*
*
Well my friends...thank you so much for coming by! Please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here! I would love to visit with you!!!

*
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Love ya'll,
Chari

We do! We do have a lot in common when it comes to our 'towns'...Nebraska [no, I'm not sure I recall that town...but, I left Ne. when I was 5]...and then, I grew up and lived in Colorado for over 40 years...retiring...and ending up in Corpus!! It's almost a deja vu thing, huh?

Where in Colorado do you live now? My dear hubby was born in the Springs, I have a brother in Greeley, and a brother in Arvada, a sister in Montrose and nieces and nephews strung all over the eastern and western slopes.

Have a super day...so glad you visited.

Marie said...

Oh Chari I love the pink charger!!! They look so good with your pink glasses. I do love pink depression glass. I have two serving pieces from my grandmother too. I think it was very popular back then, and so cheap too!! Wow, not now that is for sure. I can't believe one glass costs that much! Don't drop them..hehehe Oh yes, I check your blog all the time. I keep up on you girl don't worry. Love you!!!!

The pink depression glass does look great with those dishes. I've discovered that my green depression glass looks great with just about any of my dishes. Those little tumblers are special. Hopefully, the rain here has slowed down - we had nothing yesterday, but have had almost half of our yearly total of moisture just this week! Have a great weekend and hope the weather is glorious in your part of the state. Sally

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Pretty! Pretty! Pretty! I thought the Norway Rose china looked familiar so I checked and have a cup and saucer in that pattern! I also love pink depression glass so I am drooling over the tumblers. I only have one little pink depression glass plate that belonged to my mother but I'd love to have more...someday. :)

Caleen said...

Oh Pink. Love it!! How beautiful your whole tablescape is.. What lovely passed down treasures. The fairies are so sweet. You definitely made a beautiful pink Table.. Thank you for sharing. Have a lovely weekend.

Kim said...

I love the changes to your tablescape using your depression glass dishes. And now I know where the fairies came from as well. I love those little fairies. Enjoy them while they are in your possession. Have a nice weekend. I will probably do nothing (that is what I do best. lol.) No money to shop, no money for gas to go anywhere. no money period. Really cramps my style.
