Tblesscape Thursday!!!

Hello again ladies! Well...I thought I'd try again to share just a little with you on this beautiful Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to go to to see some super impressive ladies sharing their awesome ideas. I'm really still a novice when it comes to blogging at all, but I keep plugging away, learning a little as I go along. I'm sharing my cute little gateleg table today. I found this sweetie tucked away in an antique shop for only $40.00. It was in pretty bad shape, but I knew it's potential. A little sanding and a new coat of paint made it just perfect for that spot in my dining room I needed a little something. The first pictures are taken where the table generally lives, then you can can be transformed into something totally different! I love pewter and have a small collection I've picked up at antique shops over the years. I think it makes the perfect cozy little table for two. During the holidays, I pull the table out and set it for the children. Four children can have their own private dinner and feel very special indeed. I hope you all have a very BLESSED day today.........
                                                           God Bless Your Home
                                                             God bless your home
                                                              And all within,
                                                             The friends who come;
                                                             Your kith and kin;
                                                             Your sheltr'ing roof,
                                                             Your homely fare.
                                                             Your place of rest,
                                                             Your toil and care,
                                                             Bless absent ones
                                                             And those you love,
                                                             And guard and guide
                                                             Them from above.
                                                             And grant that soon
                                                             Sweet peace will reign
                                                            In this and ev'ry land again.

This is beautiful! It is like going home to see your table and room. Originally from KY and from a family of avid antiquers I now live 3 hrs. away in IL. I love a gateleg table and I have a lot of that pewter! We also like the same movies!

What an awesome job you did remaking that table! It looks perfect with the pewter there in front of the fireplace--reminds me of a Williamsburg tavern!

Gateleg tables are so versatile -- love the pewter in front of a cozy fire - perfect! Reminds me of Williamsburg - a top romantic spot in my heart. Love the blessing too -- I've never seen that one - lovely.
