An Apple Tablescape for an Apple Cottage and I won a giveaway!

Today I'm joining Leigh and Susan for a double post! Thanks to our lovely hostesses and please visit their blogs @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Tablescape Thursday and http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ for Thrifty Thursday! I have been wanting to do an apple table for some time but I just couldn't find the right dishes with the right price! For my centerpiece today, I am using my apple tea-pot filled with red geraniums . I found my apple butter dish on sale for only $2.00 and my S&P shakers are my every day's and look like little mason jars.

Now can you see the cute little gingerbread family? I was one of the lucky winners of Beneath my Heart's recent giveaway! Traci is the lovely gal who made these and they are just the cutest thing! Be sure to visit her Blog and see all the neat things she has going on and pics of her lovely family! Thanks Traci!

A closer view, aren't they adorable! I thought they fit perfectly for today! Later, they will go on my Christmas Tree!

An up close of my 2.00 butter dish find.

And now for the super thrifty part! I found my apple plates at Old Time Pottery for only .25 a piece! $1.00 for 4 cute apple plates by Oneida! We don't have one near us, I found these while on vacation.

I'm using my fave Country Living Table cloth, my nubby white place mats and Red gingham paper napkins tucked inside my cloth ones. The cute green glasses with the fruit pattern were a recent purchase from TJ Maxx. I splurged and spent $3.00 a piece on them!

A final view with a view! Thanks for coming and I hope you like my apple table! Please leave me a comment and let me know you came by. Cindy


  1. Yay Cindy! Looks like we're both winners today! Your gingerbread family is precious!
    There's something about apple decor that just makes me smile. It's so homey and fun and colorful! It also reminds me of Autumn.
    Those dishes were a steal at only
    1.00 for 4 plates! How do you ladies find such incredible bargains? As always your tablescape is just lovely, so colorful and fun!
    Have a great evening my friend! Hugs, Loretta

    It's a beautiful day here in colorful Colorado! There was a car show today (about 140 mls. from here) and Russell took the kids to it! They had to leave at 5:15am...so that is why I'm still home and not at the car show! Hehe! That's just too darn early for me to get up and out of the house! hehe! So the house is pretty quiet...thought I would use the time to get caught up with everyone! Sure hope that ya'll are having a great weekend!!!
