Spring Tablescapes and dining room vignettes

Tablescaping is a favorite of mine. I love spring, with lovely pastels, pinks, blues, all with white touches.
I have been blessed with the loveliest hand painted china from my husband's grandmother. She hand painted china all her life and I was blessed on our wedding with 8 place settings of china...32 years ago.  I still swoon.

 Up ahead are many spring place settings over 4 years of blogging...enjoy!

Thanks for coming by.
I've been blogging for 4 years this next month and have reached 1000 posts. I will be having a wonderful giveaway next week to celebrate. There will be some handmade items in the giveaway...my specialty...for someone special. Have a lovely week.
PS. I would appreciate a special prayer for my mother who has gotten terribly ill. Thank you so much!

I can't think of a sweeter gift than hand-painted china! I'm loving the spring pastels on tables these days. Does that coyote make your heart beat faster? haha! It would mine!

Wow! What a feast for the eyes! Your china is just stunning and I enjoyed scrolling through the many tablescapes you've done in the past, they are so beautiful!
My kitchen is mostly red and white, and I add lots of pink , starting Valentines Day, when pink and red actually can be found together, then I start bringing out more pink and green, pastels and "gardenny" stuff now for spring.
Happy St. Patrick and enjoy spring's arrival! I'm your newest member!

Your tablescapes are always so pretty and these speak spring so well! I hope you are having a happy spring and I am sending prayers that your mother will be doing well by the time you read this!
