My dishes are finally all unpacked. I sorted through napkins and linens the other day and the lighting was pretty good...I still need to buy a tripod. I was using my brother's months ago, but he needed it back.
A sweet friend of mine who has traveled to Romania on summer mission trips for the past ten years gave me this beautiful tablecloth she received from a store vendor in Romania a couple years ago. She would take clothes and undergarments for the woman and in return, she gave my friend Romanian cut glass, beautiful hand crafted dolls and linens. My sweet friend gave me a beautiful red vase and bowl one year also.
I think it's linen, but it has been starched rather stiff, so I was trying to let it settle before I took an iron to it. It is stunning and she said her table was not big enough for it. She has eaten many a meal at our house, so she said she knew I would put it to good use. It came with 8 matching place mats, but I will use those on another day.

The real star of tonight's table is this Romanian Linen and Lace tablecloth...a beautiful gift from a sweet friend of mine!
|I used Blue Willow dinner plates and Blue Danube luncheon plates.|
|Some of my grandmother's silver, wedding napkins and grocery store glasses...my eclectic mix|
|I bought the centerpiece bowl a couple years ago on clearance...made in Italy...from Home Goods. I had it there already, so I didn't change it. We ate pork chile verde tacos with corn and black bean salad.|
