New Dining Room Furniture

I'm excited to post one of my most recent purchases ... a new dining room set ... Drexel Heritage ... table and chairs and a great china cabinet.  I didn't need a new china cabinet, but it was a beautiful complete set and I didn't resist.  My good friend George has an antique and collectible shop and he always has fabulous furniture.  My sister-in-law and I sat at the table for 30 minutes before I decided to buy it ... then George said, "Did you see the matching china cabinet?"   Well, the moment I saw it ... I bought it all.  You gals that love Country French will love this furniture.  Take a look, then scroll down to see the rest of my tablescape!

I think I'll never cover this beautiful table top!

 I'm enjoying adding pale yellow and blues to the dining room. 
It's always been all about the colors of Autumn.

The dinnerware on this tablescape is from a flea market!  It's Depression Glass .. .called Waterford Waffle ... but not Waterford crystal.  It was made to compete with Waterford ... so the middle class could afford something like crystal!  The Fostoria stemmed glasses have been in my collection for 20 years!  The other part of this table that was a great thrifty find ... the napkin rings.  They are probably 1950's ... yellow rhinestones.  I love them.

I'm linking to Tabletop Tuesday and Tablescape Thursday so make sure you click through to the parties to visit the other posts!  As always, special thanks to the hostess of each party!
