Day 24: Not A Good Day To Be A Lobster

I moved Colette's Russell Spanner Catalina (c.1952) dining table set into the living room of Humber House.

 The table was set for LOBSTER NIGHT!

It looked pretty festive.

Campbell's Soup Can plastic tablecloth; mason jar glasses; a lottery ticket for each guest; stainless steel bowl for lobster shells; hot biscuits in a basket; Canadiana napkins (w/fox, grizzly, goose, maple leaf and oars); La Vielle Ferme red wine; cork placemats from IKEA; vintage, marigold Carnival glass divided plates; lobster tools; orange and white tulips and a tree branch; twisted wood; Newfoundland slate.

I bought this awesome tea towel in the gift shop at the Port Aux Basques ferry terminal last year.
The woman who worked there was so sweet.
She showed me a picture of her son who is Captain on one of the ferries.

Hunting, fishing, swimming, a moose, a lighthouse, a Pitcher Plant and a Newfoundland dog.


The food was served quickly.
It all looked and tasted amazing.

We had potato salad, of course.

There was A LOT of butter.

We played Classic Country songs like this:

Wanda Jackson - Right or Wrong

And this:

Willie Nelson - Always On My Mind

And this:

Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn - After the Fire is Gone

And this:

Loretta Lynn - Fist City

When everyone left, it reminded me of Christmas.
