Vintage Tablecloth and Napkin set I Scored!

I love vintage. I love red and I love table linens. I found this beautiful vintage 1950's Simco screen printed table cloth and napkin set on Ebay. I was even more impressed when I received it. The colors are so vivid, no wear or spots. It is just beautiful. I had to throw it on my table and take pictures.  The bowl in the center is a Scarlet Fiesta Ware pedestal bowl sitting on top of a Scarlet Fiesta Ware fruit bowl turned upside down.

I discovered after setting out my Fiesta Ware that I am missing my Sunflower Yellow, and Persimmon mugs. I need to get those replaced. That's the beauty of Fiesta Ware you can mix and match the color combos anyway you want and it's very easy to replace the current colors.

I took all the colors in the tablecloth and used my Fiesta Ware pieces that matched the colors.

I use my large disc pitchers all the time. They really are the perfect size and easy to handle.

Really I will have to say my two favorite colors of Fiesta Ware are Scarlet and Sunflower Yellow. They just brighten up any table, or kitchen.

Oops! I can see that I need to replace my Persimmon fruit bowl as well.

Puppy Tails #6

5 weeks old today! Boy has the time just flown by. They are eating solid food now and have their I D collars. Pink and yellow are for the girls and blue and green are for the boys. They have been graduated to a larger pool and have things to climb on and toys. They are doing very good on their papers. Some time this week they will be able to go to Camp Snoopy. I am leaving Saturday for D.C. and won't be back for a week so no Puppy Tails next Monday :-(.  I will miss them. A week is a long time in puppy growth, but they will be left in good hands.

This little face is of yellow girl are smallest one but by far the most adventurous! She is first to come, first out of the box and nothing scares her.
