Home Sweet Home #29

Welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I have my table ready for dessert and coffee with a little coastal style.

The original inspiration for this table was a table I saw in Waterside Cottages a book by Barbara Jacksier.  I live a mile or less from  a large lake.  I am glad I'm not waterside though, I grew up with areas of water nearby and there were too many snakes!  
My vintage item is the pewter, all of it by Wilton Armetale.
Thanks for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
Now, I would like to feature some wonderful post from last week's Home Sweet Home.

First, Debbie from Debbiedoo's Blogging and Blabbing shared her tips on staining outdoor furniture vs. painting and showed off this beautiful outdoor space.  Click the link to view.

Next, Honey over at 2805 showed off this vintage scale.  Click the link to view.

Confessions of a Plate Addict created a cheesescape and explained how the French are experts on cheese.  Click the link to view.

Kristy, at Starfish Cottage created this beautiful tablescape.  Click the link to view.

And last, Cass at This Old House tells the story of remodeling her kitchen.  Click the link to view.

Dear Sherry,
your pewter looks wonderful. It reflects the coast so much. I was at Cape Cod a few days ago and thought of you when seeing all the beautiful coastal items. I kept saying..oh Sherry would love that..and this and this too! LOL!
