Cherry ~ Cherry Pie


~ Presidents' Day ~
Monday, February 21, 2011




Mondays are also the day to celebrate

the art of Mary Engelbreit over at The Cherry Chick.




With both in mind,

I've set the table with what else but ~

CHERRIES, of course!




Vintage linens, black and white checks, tartan plaid,

and Mary Engelbreit's own cherry inspired dishes.

Definitely a Mary Engelbreit sort of table!





A vintage cloth 

with sassy lacy details . . .




Holds its own below black ruffled

placemats and a bold tartan plaid charger.




Dinner Plate




Salad Plate




Soup or Cereal Bowl




All layered to give the classic 

Mary Engelbreit look.





Add a bit of vintage 

mother of pearl flatware . . .





And a spoon with 

ginkgo leaf detail . . .




A bit more touch of 

tartan plaid for good measure . . .




And a bit more 

black and white checks.




The special touch 

of a vintage toast rack . . .





Paired with the acorn leaf details of my

favorite butter knife finish off the setting.




As you munch on a bite of bread and butter before

lunch, lean in closely, I've a little secret to share.




All the dishes on this table were "thrifty" finds!

"Goodwill Hunting" @ 99¢ a piece.




Oh, is that bowl still empty?




How about a cherry pie . . .




To finish out the layers for this

Very Cherry Day!
