Apple Festival Tablescape

Coming up in just a few days, the annual Apple Festival will run four days over Labor Day weekend in downtown Hendersonville, starting on Friday.  This is really a fun event, such a small town thing.  I've posted about it in the past, showing the wide range of apple varieties and yummy things made with …

Colors of August Tablescape

Now that I have placemats and a table topper, it was time to take a look at the tablescaping stuff and see what I could pull together in a different way.  I wanted to shop my own closet this time.  Amazingly, I didn't buy one single thing, all of this came from my stash.  I …

Al Fresco Tablescape and Blog Hop

The heat is not quite as intense in the past few days, so of course I began thinking about having a luncheon with friends over to enjoy the veranda.  There are several new additions to my tablescaping closet, some from thrift stores and some from online auctions I just could not resist.  When I saw …

Vintage Fourth Tablescapes

This year, I thought I'd do my patriotic table with a vintage theme.  I had these Bell canning jars and a vintage-style milk crate for inspiration.  It would be something a bit different than the usual flags for July 4th.  Plus, making the table fresh and new from previous years using only what I had …

Summer Garden Tablescape

It feels like summer here with the warming weather.  While I was cleaning out the kitchen cabinets, I noticed that I had a lot of things with a vegetable theme, so I thought I'd do a table with them. I started the table with my Farmer's Market Picnic Quilt. No chargers this time as I …

Setting the table …

Aka Kuroguro Table for Two

This month I am sharing posts that are Oriental inspired, on a variety of subjects.  Although I like a full table, and I don't mind a bit of clutter during certain times of the year, this Japanese inspired table for two begins with simplicity.  Aka Kuroguro means Red and Black, so it is the name …

Mardi Gras Tablescape

It is Carnival season, essentially the month of January all the way to Fat Tuesday, which is February 13 this year.  Another sewing day is planned, but I'm not quite sure when it will be. So far, we haven't been able to figure out when we can do another for reasons of weather and dates …

January White

After the richness and clutter of the autumn season and the holidays, I like to begin the new year with a clean and fresh look, simple and pure.  Last night we got about 3 inches of snow, and this morning the view out the front windows looks much like my header photo again, just not …

Happy New Year 2018

Another New Year begins, and once again I am going to spend this day doing the things that I want to do all year long.  I'll be enjoying a nice breakfast with newly retired DH (that's dear husband for new readers), watching the Rose Parade, doing a bit of sewing and maybe a bit of …
