This spring season I've noticed everywhere I go the stores are decorating with teal, aqua and pretty greens. March marked a year my mom passing away.
I did an aqua tablescape in her honor with some of her things.
Aqua has been very comforting. Can't really explain it. I recently looked up what the color aqua/turquoise meant:
The color turquoise is associated with meanings of refreshing, feminine, calming, sophisticated, energy, wisdom, serenity, wholeness, creativity, emotional balance, spiritual grounding, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty.

I found these plates at TJ Maxx on clearance. I was thrilled. The placemats came from Dollar Tree last year.
I found these napkins from the Christmas Tree store. I couldn't believe the prices. The napkin rings came from a friend of mine.
This tablecloth was my inspiration. It belonged to my mom. I found it in her hope chest. Those colors must have been very popular in the late 50's when her and dad got married.
A sweet friend of mine found these at GW in the bargain barn. I can't believe the cup and saucer weren't broken. If you've ever been in a bargain barn you hear glass breaking as people go through those bins. They just throw things around. I remembered I had these and matched up nicely.
I love this huge candle holder/vase not sure what it is. Purchased at Hobby Lobby recently.
This cross has been my source of comfort and felt it completed the tablescape by hanging on the wall in the dining area. It is well with my Soul. Thank you Lord! You give me comfort and joy during this season in my life.
