What's black and white.........??

I am still at the farm house - we have the shearers here shearing our sheep so I need to give Mr FH a bit of a hand. Hopefully we will leave tomorrow and go visit our new baby boy and his big brother then onto the beach house for the weekend. This morning DNo 2 and our darling granddaughter are coming to visit so I am really looking forward to that. 
I haven't really had time to make a new tablescape so I had to dive into the photo bank I have and find something I haven't already posted!!

I was recently looking for some funky fabric to make a cushion for DNo1 to go on an old black wrought iron chair she had found in the council cleanup when I saw this black/grey/white piece. I purchased it for her and also for myself for a tablecloth. At $3.00 per metre it made a very cheap tablecloth!

I already had this cute piece of black and white fabric so I quickly made a tablerunner to add to the table.

This is my everyday white china which I matched up with parts of the black dinnerset I purchased a while ago.

Left over black and white fabric was used as napkins along
with plain white napkins and rings.

I bought this cute tray on sale just before Christmas and it was a little bit too grey so I gave it a light spray with black paint. I now have it on the bench at my beach house. Much better this colour!!

I also sprayed this little trug which was a throw out at my sister's gift shop oneday. I just love spray paint but I have to make myself take it slowly and just do fine layers or I end up with things a little messy!!

Black flatware looks so simple and perfect for this table.  A couple of white pillar candle and some white stones fill up the black tray.

Isn't this back and white fabric just the best!! I wish I had bought enough to make a full cloth for the table but I haven't seen it in the shops again.

Once again things look much nicer by candlelight!!!!


(Sorry about the spacing but something seems to be going on here which I can't control!!lol)

Where, where, where did you get the material for the table runner? I'm crazy about it. Do add a link, if you can.

I'm also a fan of black and white table settings, so this really speaks to me. I can see a copycat tablescape in the making.

Suzy, this is just as cute as can be! I love the cloth you made, and the black and white design is just so snappy. That little box with the handle that is holding your white flowers? LOVE it! You did a great job with this tablescape.

Happy Tablescape Thursday to you...

Love the black and white!!! That runner is just TOO fabulous! I just took a sewing lesson this past Monday, and I have already sewn 3 tablecloths! What a great sense of satisfaction! Since you have been sewing for awhile, you know what I'm talking about! It's so nice to be able to make the tablecloth, napkins, runners....whatever!....that you really want instead of just what's available in the stores! That fabric you chose for the runner is excellent! Glad to know you're OK. I thought about you and a couple of other bloggers from Australia when we saw all the flooding on the news. I hope you and yours came out of it unscathed. I don't know the geography of the continent very well, so I wasn't sure if you were in harm's way or not. Have a wonderful weekend, and stay safe!
