Tablescape # 44 - A Vintage Bird Cage

Hello Everyone,
I'm so excited to share with you
'My Vintage Bird Cage'
A few weeks ago I won a $50 dollar gift certificate from 
Between Naps on the Porch.
French Bleu Vintage 
I love being a winner. Don't You?

I thought today's tablescape would be an appropriate time to show 
'My Vintage Bird Cage'
 as the Tablescape Centerpiece.
I also just had an update to Picasa 3 and added  this wonderful Museum Matte
 Just love the look!

I've had the bird's nest and eggs for awhile
the bird I just bought at Yes, you guessed it
Tuesday morning.
It isn't vintage but just about everything else on this table is...

The beautiful dessert plates and tea cups and saucers were my Father's Grandmother's dishes.

The plates have RS Prussia marked on the back.
I don't know how my family acquired the dishes, but I was was the fortunate one to inherit the antiques. 

There is something soft and romantic about vintage table settings.

"RS Prussia" porcelain is know both for the complexity of its molds and for the beauty of the patterns, most of which were applied using floral transfers, such as gold gilding or embellishments like thick enameling to give the floral prints texture.

Wedding gift 1960

I found the vintage napkin rings at the thrift store and 12 napkins came with a 
120" tablecloth I found at a yard sale.
Hand made in Columbia
