Let's set the table to look like a daffodil in spring. This rainbow table is my favorite depression glass pattern, Cameo, in yellow and green. I love how the pattern looks in green and adding yellow just adds joy. Doesn't that dancer look like she is dancing for happiness? This time I switched out the yellow cups and have sunny yellow plates with everything else green. What do you think? Do you like matching the cup and saucer better or do you prefer the extra bit of yellow depression glass? I enjoy making these tablescapes. At first they were hard and I wondered whether others would enjoy seeing all the creative ways you can use depression glass. The encouraging comments from you helped me so much; it is rewarding to see your notes and read about your glass and vintage china. Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. Setting the tables helps me feel how the original owners must have felt. You can handle this glass and feel a connection to the past, a tangible link to the women and men before us who also enjoyed pretty things and setting a lovely table for their families and friends. That sense of history, of connecting to others, being in a community of others who like glass, is what draws me to depression glass. I started with glass because I love glass, love the look and feel, transparency and light. What keeps me here is the romance of something so beautiful that has been special to people long before me and those who will come after. Why do you like vintage glass or china? Is it special family memories? The lovely style? That sense of history? Please leave a a comment and let us know. Thank you for visiting each week and thank you so much for your encouragement this past year. My thanks to Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this fun event.
