Autumn on the Blue Ridge Tablescape

Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn in the Blue Ridge mountains.  We are so lucky to live here, and the explosion of color in the trees is wonderful, even in a year that has been too warm for too long.  Finally, we are seeing some of the Autumn glory, now that the temperatures are getting …

Apple Tablescape

Apple Festival weekend starts today, a four-day, annual, Labor Day weekend event, done like only a small town can do it.  It is the end of summer, and almost time for my favorite season, autumn, but not quite yet.  So, an apple tablescape is in order once again.  I put this one together using only …

Summer is here, and for some reason that makes me think of lemonade, which is funny because I rarely have lemonade.  Perhaps it is the vibrant yellow color which speaks of sunshine and warmth, and lazy evenings in the rocking chairs on the veranda.  Whatever the motivation, I have been collecting a few lemon items …

Al Fresco Tablescape for Two

After some really hot days here, the temperature finally leveled off at more of our normal upper 70s to low 80s daytime highs.  Even if it is hot during the day, when the sun goes past the mountaintop to the west, it cools considerably.  Early evening temps are pleasant, with a light breeze, and the …
