An Aussie setting, something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

On hot days in Australia the only thing that is ever wanted is water, huge jugs of icy cold water. This blue jug is enormous and holds plenty of cool water, it belonged to Andrew's mother and it is quite old. I love the shape of the jug, it is quite heavy when full and always pours so beautifully.

An old Australian shed on a near by property with yes more agapanthus. This is an old country sieve and I use it as a tray, I love using all these old farm objects in my table settings, the long stool came from the movie Babe, the Australian talking Pig movie filmed nearby in Robertson. I love the worn out wood and the pale colour of the timber. The blue and white french striped table cloth above is from an old umbrella. I unpicked it of the metal frame, I love it and it is a perfect circle for this little table.

Just a little bit more blue china.............I just can't help myself.

I have been in a bit of a blue mood this week - from my gardening posts through to my entertaining ideas, something different to share with you. I hope your enjoy your visit.

I am thrilled to be part of Tablescape Thursday with Susan from Between Naps on the Porch in the US again this week. Drop in and visit
