Rabbits and Cabbage Leaves

A casual lunch or dinner: 

Plates- Johnson Brothers, Sterling-Buttercup by Gorham, Glasses- from the 70's, Faux Cabbage leaf placemats from local gift shop, ceramic tureen was painted by my mother,  matelasse bedspread used as a tablecloth, rabbit salt and pepper shakers I have had a long time and can't remember where I bought them. Guess what I forgot? I do have napkins but I forgot them. Visualize a white napkin tied with raffia to finish off the tablesetting.

I love white dishes because you can change the look so easily and I have loved them for 39 years. Of course, some have yellowed and cracked . I have replaced four plates from Replacements LTD.

Joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for  Tablescape Thursday.


  1. Love your bunnies, cabbage leaves and that pretty green water matches a couple yellowy-green ones I have!

  2. Love the cabbage leaves ... such a vibrant green for Spring. Elegant table!

  3. So pretty and elegant! Is that parsley in the cabbage leaf pot? It looks great on your table! I wish now that I had a set of white dishes -- so versatile!

  4. How cute your bunnies & white dishes are! ANd I have those same cabbage leaf placemats. Too cute!

  5. This is just lovely! I love the bunnies and the cabage theme with the white dishes!.., I used a white matelasse bedspread for my Tablescape Thursday tableaux this week as well..,

  6. Hello there,

    Your tablescape is just lovely!~(My previous message seems to have gotten 'bumped out into cyber space' and dissappeared, so I rewrote it)..,

    I love the green cabbageplace matts and the white dishes with the bunnies; so adorable!

    Pleae come by for a visit sometime..,

    Hugs, Wanda Lee

  7. Hello there sweet lady,

    Here I am back again once more..,Thanks for visiting my blog;(I am beginning to experience renewed strength by the grace of God).

    (I see that my original message re-appeared; it must have taken a few moment 'to cache through' with blogger)..,

    With reference to your query; yes we do do serve quite and elaborate, Afternoon Tea at our Bed and Breakfast, by appointment. Yet whereas I see that you are located in lovely Albama, most likely this would be too far away for you to partake; I only wish we were not so far away as I would love to have you come for tea my dear!

    We are located and hour away from Boston Mass., via plane, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

    ~Here is our web address however, as you just never know when you may perhaps decide to visit our lovely coastal province in Canada one day: ~ (Please turn on your speaker and enjoy our lovely harp musuc as well)!..,

    ..,(Incidentally, we are experiencing a very early Spring and our beautiful Victorian, 'Halifax Public Gardens' will be opening two weeks early, which has never happened previously to my knowledge)!..,

    Also a further aside, my sister and her family lived in Mississippi for several years, also my hubby and I used to exhibit in Atlanta, Georgia for many years at the Giftmart, with my wholesale, 'Wanda Lee and Company' line of artcards and prints where we had a showroom, seven years ago)..,

    Blessings and hugs from Wanda Lee

  9. So cute -- I have loved using my cabbage leaves for St. Patrick's and Easter -- I'll be leaving them out with one set of bunnies all Spring! This is so pretty.

  10. I really like your green and white table setting. So spring like! I must find those cabbage leaf placemats!
    Your blog is beautiful. Love the larger photographs! When I learned how to enlarge, it made a huge difference in my blog. YOu can go back and enlarge the old ones too. I'll show you how if you are interested.

  11. I agree with you about white china--all you need is an imagination to make it new everyday! The matelesse is the perfect backdrop!

  12. Thanks for stopping by my tablescape this week -- I can see from looking back through your blog we have very similar tastes in decor and are at very similar points in live. It's so nice to meet you -- aren't blogging friendships wonderful -- I've met so many gracious people. It looks like from your sidebar I see a wonderful trip to Paris! And I have four granddaughters -- aren't grandchildren a wonderful blessing? Thanks again for stopping by.

  13. So simple and yet so very pretty!...Christine

  14. Such a pretty table. Love those place mats. laurie

  17. Hi-
    I love your tablescape, and I have those same goblets in red.
    I love them!
    Everything looks great!

    Thanks for coming by my blog.

  18. Hey, Bonnie, so you haven't updated since Easter?! Thanks for telling me that story about Sally Ann's. That is TOO funny.

  19. Hi, I missed you post last week. But I want to tell you, I love your bunnies with the cabbage leafs. So cute. I like this cabbage design of the pretty tureen and the placemats and the green goblets are really beautiful. Because you have choosen only cabbage green as color, it looks really calming and nice.
    Greetings, Johanna
