Winter Wonderland in Florida!

Hi Friends,

Yes, we have winter in Florida but not today.  I think the temp's were in the 80's and it was quite balmy for January.

I realize that this is a late entry, but wanted to be part of the Tuesday events!  Putting tablescapes together takes a lot of work of trial and error for me.  By the time there are completed  I'm pooped and don't even think about taking pictures.

In the early part of January I hosted a ladies meeting at my home and had the table set like this below.

Thank you for your grace and allowing me to post this!  LOL

It's my pleasure to be a part of:

Marti at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday

Sandi at Rose Chintz  Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.

A snowflake hand towel

I love this winter scene in the woods with the snow.  This is a very small painting.

Popular candle holders right now. Can't think of the name.

I found the napkins at TJ Maxx on clearance and the ribbon at DT.  Made my own napkin rings.

I fell in love with these dessert plates with tea/punch cup.  Love the snowflake!
They were in a garage sale and didn't sell.  The owner gave them to me later.  :)

Setting with silver chargers.

Snowflake and silver ornaments from Christmas on a Silver platter  purchased at GW

Another view  - see crystal candle holder and silver S & P

The view with candlelight - lights on

View with lights off.  Ahh...

Yes, it's 2013

Hi Friends,

It's hard to believe it's been since early November last year that I blogged. 

The holidays were wonderful but took a toll on me.  I've been so busy since before Thanksgiving thru the first of this year with company and entertaining.

Today I had a treatment for an autoimmune disease I'm dealing with.  I've enjoyed so many tablescapes and vignettes, but just didn't have the energy to take the pictures and post them.

I'm exhausted or should say....fatigued but wanting to get back in this hobby that I love and share it with you.

Just a few pictures...they are all repeats.

Favorite small pillow from a dear friend who has passed away.
Such a delicate tea cup with saucer.
Mama Gail made this for me years ago for Christmas.  I put it out every year in memory of her.
I left my Christmas tree of last year and made it into a Valentine's tree.
Wonderful memories at the Trinkle Mansion Bed and Breakfast a few years ago.  Love the Country Roses teacup.
Couldn't believe it when I saw this!  Deserves to be repeated.  Gasparilla Island.
I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.
and Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage.

Thanks for checking them out.


Feeling like Aqua

Hi Everyone! This spring season I've noticed everywhere I go the stores are decorating with teal, aqua and pretty greens.  March mark...
