place setting light house place mats acrylic tableware

love these light house plates
started with my blue plate light house place setting and acrylic tableware
people who saw an earlier blog wondered what i was going to do with my dried grape stems.  They made a different foliage.
I guess he can't read haha my writing
side table with little fisherman with his catch of the day.  He seems surprised to catch such a colorful fish heehee salt shaker
Since I live near the great St. Lawrence river nautical always comes to mind.  I live 10 miles from the bridge to Canada and it is a sight to see.  The river is ever changing and we have the most beautiful sunrises and sets.  Ships from all over the world pass through. Many of the rich own islands with beautiful mansions.  It is called millionaire row.  Tour boats take you to Bolt castle all renovated.  Dark Island has a castle which is now open for tours. My town is very cultural with big names coming to our community to our play house.We hold large fairs. craft, art,etc every week end .  We have the largest boat museum in the east and fabric and art museum. I love my town and have lived here all my life.  Why would I want to be anywhere else?

long view of table
Notice the fishing sign
found shade at thrift store
neat boat
we also have excellent fishing with guides to take you to the best fishing holes and serve a shore dinner.  Bass, Pike, muskie. At night you can hear the loons and ocean liners churning down the river.  You can sit in our parks at night and see the heavens sparkle.   We have several light houses on our river so the star is my center piece.  The ships  of course are ancient but our history of the battle between the British and the U.S was on our river..Not far from here is another village where there is a battleground which they reenact the battle each year. It is now a state park. I found in my yard a Indian grinding stone as this was once an indian settlement.Our area is full of history which I will tell in future posts.

I can feel the water on my face as the boat speeds through the water. Have a great day and stay cool. Richard at My Old Historic House

Ahoy! Permission to come ashore mam? What a lovely job you've done with your tablescape. I'd love to come for a visit, have you take me around, show me the sites and dine at your lovely table. How fortunate you are to live in such a place all your life. The menu sounds delish as usual. Can't wait to see your next creation.
Til next time...
God bless you real good.

Your tablescape is wonderful! I love all the details you added. We visited Millionaire's Row last summer. That's a beautiful area to live in.

Love the lighthouse, we have a lighthouse in Charlevoix, MI that they returned to it's historic red color. Your table is lovely, love the lighthouse dishes. Thank you for visiting our blog!

Vernice, you live in the coolest area! Lighthouses are so cool, and I like the way you have brought their glory to life on your table. That one boat DID resemble the Mayflower! :-) You mentioned fruited Jell-O. I haven't had that in so long. I think I will buy and make some this weekend. That sounds like a light, cool dish for this sticky hot weather. I think you guys are getting pounded weather-wise now, too. I'm not sure how much more of this I can stand. I have been staying indoors, only venturing out to the grocery store & other errands once a week. I don't even walk up to the mailbox but once a week or so! TOO hot!!! Have a wonderful weekend, and thank you for stopping in on my blog earlier! It's always great to hear from you!!!
