Will you join me for brunch by the pool?
A couple of weeks ago during Cuisine Kathleen’ Let’s Dish Wednesday, Sarah from Hyacinths For The Soul had a lovely post on Nantucket. I dedicate this tablescape to her as her post was my inspiration.
Of course there would not be three lighthouses this close together, luckily tablescapes give us artistic license.
Did you know that lighthouse have been built since the Hellenistic period? You can read more about them here.
The salad and bread plates were found during an annual outing with my friend Lori at Home Goods on Memorial Day. The graphics of the maps were so crisp, I tried to leave them in the store, but they wanted to go home with the red dishes. They were so loud I had to put them in the basket before people started staring.
Although the salad plates are all the same the bread plates are all slightly different.
When the daylight fades and the shadows fall
Let the light from the lighthouse shine on me...
And the sun sinks low in a troubled sea
Let the light from the lighthouse shine on me
And the night winds blow and the rain falls free
Let the light from the lighthouse shine on me.
The ultra white starfish were a gift from my friend Maryanne. They were part of her collection from the East Coast.
I’ve brought put a few of my antique quilts for some background atmosphere. The indigo stars on white is from the 1880s.
Not sure of the date on this one, but the stitching is so pretty.
Thanks for joining me for brunch by the pool. Did you bring your suit? I keep the water on the chilly side so it will feel as if you are in the ocean.
Stitch at you soon,
