It was too hot to work outside Saturday and Sunday, so I played with the dishes in the kitchen.
I wanted to show you the silver wreath trivet I recently found...at you guessed it...the thrift store. You know how
cheap thrifty I am.
Of course, since I was playing, I had to add a few more things on the table.
I didn't really need another trivet, but it's silver, and has seashells, seahorses, lobsters and crabs on it. How could I pass it up?
Plus, you can also hang it with the little hanger behind the bow...but I doubt I'll do that.
I used a clear plate on top, and scooched the bowl of shrimp dip and crackers to the side, so you could still see the design of the trivet.
I added a few more coastal touches...a seashell planter with basil from the garden, hydrangeas and a starfish on the napkins.
Vanity Fair napkins have seashells embossed on them. I've used them for years, and I'm not being compensated...I just like them.
Love this shell spoon my neighbor gave me. I think it's a coffee measure, but I use it for other things, too.
The shrimp dip is just cream cheese, mayo, chives and a few salad shrimp, for a quick snack to keep me going, while I take photos of the table. Ha.
Hope y'all have a great week.
