Lots of Yellow

Sunny yellow tablescape this week.
 For the center table topper, I'm using a 30" rag rug from Longaberger. 
It's the yellow Rose Trellis pattern.
 A made a small yellow pedestal stand using an overturned small fruit bowl with
 a salad plate on top. A glass dome from a thrift store fits nicely.
 A sweet little yellow sunflower salt and pepper set was found at a thrift shop.
 Longaberger Rose Trellis napkins are tucked into 
 yellow gingham checked wooden napkin rings. 
 Butternut yellow pottery and vintage yellow juice glasses are set for breakfast.
Big yellow lemons fill the apothecary jar.
Mini bagels under the glass dome.
 I  reMAY'd  a small Pellegrino bottle into an oil lamp.
 I used vegetable oil, but you can also use lamp oil
 or Citronella if it's for outside. 
I just used lamp brass nipples, a washer and cording.
I need a few more parts and then I'll be making


  1. OOh great candles!!! What a great idea. So glad you shared that with us.. The table, well it's wonderful with the rug and the plaid napkin rings (drooling!) and the beautiful napkins.. I'd love to wake up to this!
    many blessings, marlis

  2. So clever to make a lamp out of a bottle! I would have never thought about this. Love the bright fresh blue and yellow. Also love the little dome you put together. At a dish store I went to recently, someone had put together these as displays. Joni

  3. Love yellow and this is a fabulous tablescape. Love the linens too. Beautifully done and so cheery. Hugs, Marty

  5. Oh my gosh, I love the oil lamp. I used to design lamps, and I have tons of components in a tool box in the work room. The spot of green is the perfect shot of color with your yellow pieces. Thank you for sharing your darling design. Cherry Kay
