Vegetable Soup by the TV

I recently bought this vase at the Flea Market for $2.00.
I just loved the hand painted design and knew that it would match these dishes perfectly:

So today, on a gloomy, drizzly summer afternoon, we will have fresh vegetable soup and french bread by the TV.

I layered using my favorite Westmoreland milk glass dishes and decided it wan't important to use a proper setting:

I managed to pick a few flowers in between the showers:
We devoured the soup before I even thought about taking a photo - but it was GOOOOD!

  6. The simple tables are just as sweet and pretty as the complicated tables, they are all divine to sit at and eat a meal.
    Your table looked comfy and inviting and perfect for soup in front of the t.v.

  7. What a sweet find! It's perfect with the dishes. Are these McK-C? They remind me of the Honeymoon pattern, but are they? They are charming! Love the blue checks and the flowers are a perfect fit.
