This beautiful red lantern was half off! I think it will be so versatile, especially around the holidays, and I'm looking forward to using it in future tablescapes. For this one, though, it took center stage on top of an off-white placemat. The dark red matched nicely with my woven straw placemats and Queen's Rooster dinner plates.
The water goblet is Fostoria's Jamestown in Ruby. My mother had this pattern in pink (to match her Franciscan Desert Rose) in juice glasses, water goblets, iced tea goblets, and sherbets. I have such fond memories of this pattern, and I love its swirl and shape. My mom and dad retired to the beach several years ago and downsized quite a bit. She told me this week that her Jamestown was sold at her church's yard sale for $1 a piece. I was sick to hear that, but someone certainly got a deal! I recently found some Jamestown iced tea glasses in amber on ebay, so keep an eye out for them in future tablescapes, along with some April Cornell linens from Christmas Tree Hill!
