CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Tablescape in Blue and WhiteI am really excited this week to join some very talented bloggers in presenting The Scoop’s Spring Tablescape Tour! And my tablescape is one that has been cooking in my brain for quite  some time. If you know me, you know how I love blue and white and have amassed a little collection of double happiness and ginger jars over the years.

So you will understand that among my favorite pins is this lovely blue and white tablescape! My heart nearly stopped when I saw it for the first time and I knew, being the big fat copy-cat that I am, that I wanted to create my own version one day. I also knew that I could shop the house for almost everything, but I had one problem…I needed white tulips! So this spring, as soon as they appeared in Michaels (yes…mine are faux), I made sure to have a supply of them for all of my spring decorating!

The set of six plates…on clearance for only $17…came from Bombay Company many years ago.

Kitty However, Miss Kitty, in usual feline fashion, is not impressed. Her suggestion…next time go for black and white! Hmmm…I wonder where she gets that idea! LOL
