Tuesday Table for Two

This is my participation in Tabletop Tuesday.

 I adore these goblets, a recent find.  They have an amber bowl that is lustery (is that a word) and a green stem.  Because I only have three I wanted to use them for a dinner for two.  But creating a table setting that I'm happy with has been a little difficult. 

I have always loved clear glass, but lately have developed an afinity for tinted glassware, especially in shades of amber and yellow.  Not sure why, perhaps its spring coming around and thoughts of Easter dinner that has done it.  Anyway, here are the goblets that hold my eye at the moment.

Since it is still March, my house is still decorated with a lot of green, so green it is.
I tried a dark green water glass because I only have three of them also.
But I didn't like that at all.  The green just off enough to make me uncomfortable. 

Next I tried a little lime green glass thinking perhaps that would go.  Well, as you can see it was awful. 

So I decided to use a recent Pier One find that I couldn't resist.  On sale, of course, so I only have 5 of them.   They are really pretty and are somewhat better. 

So, for a quiet and informal dinner for two, this is how it ended.  I will be on careful look-out for more coordinating glassware (gee how odd for me) and oh, I do like to be on a quest.

So now it's time to move into Spring.  A little early at my house, but all the posts are so inspiring I can't wait another week. 
I want to thank all those tablescape bloggers for all their inspiration.

Thanks for looking.

I am also joining Tabletop Tues at Marty’s http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/2010/03/5th-table-top-tuesday-more-spring.htmland apologize that I can't seem to get the appropriate links yet. That's the most frustrating about blogging for me.  I can't seem to get some things to work.  But, I'm studying on it and will figure it out I'm sure.  Please bear with me.
