pretty in lavender

I thought I would treat  myself to a lavender lunch.  I only had one napkin and dessert dish so I said why not lol

I took note of my purple dish and used lavender and green  The tablecloth is pastal green and place mat deeper green with a square lace.

More lavender and green in candle lamp and cute dragonfly on easal

Love my teapot sitting on old base to a victorian lamp painted white.Another celler find.

Egg plant dish for dessert

Lucky to find 4 of these plates

Purple dinner plate too  pretty to to cover up

Only got one pale purple goblet .I wish I could have got more.Always drink water before you eat.

Again only one teacup and saucer just for me

I only use sugar so no creamer.

Front view.  I haven't decided what the menu is but it will be heart healthy. I am thinking chicken stir fry, tossed salad and jello. I think Lemon tea.

froggies and me

Who could resist him.? I used it for my sun flowers I am sad this week as three of my siblings are in the hospital with serious illnesses so am using one of fun tablescapes that make me happy. 
I thought it would be fun to show off my frogs and  join them for lunch.  No frog legs ugh. Asparagus soup maybe a hot muffin and a little tossed salad
Love my soup bowl
Not lily pads but go with my color scheme.
Found 6 of these free whee

We are in the last days of summer and though I love the fall will miss the sounds and sights of summer.
View of table setting              I love doing theme settings it makes me happy I hope there are bloggers out there who likes to see them. Please leave comments if you do. This is what I do best. I have got to be me. Send prayers for my siblings. I couple of tips. There many bloggers giving many tips.  Some work for me and some don't. With the quirky weather we have been having. The fruit bugs fleas and mice spiders are looking for protection from the heat and rain.  The best ones that worked for me is with vinegar.  For fruit flies fill an open small mouth jar and cover with saran wrap and punch holes in the top. It took about a week but it works.  No more fruit flies. Where you find mouse tracks fill a small jar of vinegar .  I use used spice bottles with holes in tops.  No more mice.  Carpet I use my carpet cleaner with part cleaner and part vinegar.  Fleas don't like the smell. Thanks bloggers for tips.
