Autumn Jubilee Tablescape

Because this is my favorite season of all, I have a lot of autumn inspired things to use in the kitchen and on the table. I adore these salad plates with the leaves, purchased some years ago when Pier 1 still had stores. The pumpkin bowls are also years old, and I get them out …

Sunday Chat with a Lemon Tablescape

Springtime Table and More

Spring is still almost a week away, officially, but the warmer days seem to be here. Time for a springtime table to brighten up meal time. I looked in my stash of quilts and realized I have very little in the way of square table toppers. Mostly I make longer runners for the larger table …

It's Mardi Gras today! The last day of the Carnival season. Of course, this year there hasn't been much party time, so a festive table will help bring a bit of cheer this week. We are staying home more than ever now, so some color on a rainy day is nice. Gold, green and purple …
