Found this cute gingerbread men container at MAM. I have really enjoyed popping into this Thrift store. I always come home with something. This will go on my table at Christmas filled with flowers or plant.
Another view of the gingerbread men.
These two benches came from my parents. My mom was tried of them and was going to throw them away. I happily agreed to take them. Not sure why the photo doesn't show the whole view of them. They are sitting on our back patio right outside our back door. I stuck my ivy's on them to get a drink from all the rain we have been getting.

As I mentioned earlier I have the dishes but that is about it. I started looking through drawers, closets and boxes looking for flatware, linens and glassware and its sad to say I have very little or almost none except what I use for the main holidays. Because of this I have been on a shopping spree for items for the table. My family thinks I am crazy and wonders how long this will last!So please stay and have a look at my weeknight table. I have packed up most of the Easter items but a few bunnies keep hopping out of the boxes. I absolutely love this tablecloth and would use it everyday if I could. It has a border on both sides of rabbits in a beautiful garden and flowers sprinkled all over the middle.The centerpiece is very simple here. A milk glass vase filled with flowers from the grocery store. These flowers are very hardy and have been here for almost two weeks! I found this rabbit at Hobby Lobby in the after Easter sale marked down to 66% off and he just jumped right into my basket.
On the other side of the flowers are two rabbits having fun. These rabbits were given to my when I was young. They were holding Easter eggs but they have been gobbled up!My dishes are plastic and purchased from Avon many years ago. They have a raised bubble edge. They came in four colors but only three worked with my tablecloth.The napkins are new. I ran out to Walmart and purchased white cloth napkins. We usually have paper napkins but they would not do for this photo shot. The flatware was a wedding gift and its our everyday. My sweet boy set out the utensils.Oops, I just noticed that there are no glasses on the table. They are are over near the refrigerator waiting to be filled!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I appreciate your comments about my tablescape.

Here is our plan for the week:
Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting Target Birds on Holiday. These adorable salt and pepper shakers purchased at Target are flying the coop and having a grand holiday! Please visit Between Naps on the Porch to read about the many adventures these birds are having.
However, my birds did not take a holiday because their money had to be spent paying taxes!
Have a great day!

I found three Pyrex dishes that I haven't share with you that have been in my collection for awhile. The pattern is Butterfly gold. I know that the 2 bottom bowls are called Cinderella bowls but what is the one on the top called? If you know please let me know. I know I have said that it is getting harder to find Pyrex at cheap prices or at all. My thrift stores are not having many items pass through their doors. I hope I don't have to pay high antique prices to feed my habit!

Synopsis from Barnes and Noble:
From day one grad students Doris and Ronnie felt as if they didn't fit in at Langsdale University. Hailing from a pulsating urban scene-Doris from Brooklyn and Ronnie from L.A.-both struggled to find their groove in the calm and untroubled waters of the flyover state Indiana. But as best friends Doris and Ronnie pursue their degrees amid country fairs they find that their education is about to take a decidedly book-free, non-researched turn...
