A Golden Day

We have had some of the nicest days of the year this past week. Sunny, warm, just gorgeous. The inspiration for this table started with a beautiful Vera-like gold, brown, orange and white tablecloth. I say Vera-like as I couldn't find her signature anywhere on it.

The napkins are a warm brown hemstitched linen held with wooden bead napkin rings.

The plate stack begins with a woven charger, white BP cabbage leaf charger, burnt orange BH&G dinner plate, Sterling brown and white salad plate and finally a brown Boston Warehouse handled soup bowl set. I used the gold BP crescent shaped salad plate to hold mini pumpkins and a roll.

The flatware is Oxford Hall Fashion Wear in rust.

The glassware is Noritake Provencial in amber.

The centerpiece is a brown candle in a simple metal candle holder that is supposed to look like a wheat sheaf.

Thanks for visiting today...hope you will come back the next time.

I will join Table It/Rustic & Refined.

On The Eve Of Fall!

The inspiration for this week's table was the beautiful rich colors of the tablecloth. I pulled out the gold and purples. The natural thing for a centerpiece was a tray of grapes and fruits.

An Anniversary and Birthday!

Today is my 6 year anniversary of blogging and my nephew, Joel's birthday! Happy Birthday, Joel.

Thank you, everyone, for all the prayers and healing thoughts for my husband, Howard. He is doing very well, getting ready for his 2nd round of chemo starting Monday morning. This time they will be trying it on an out-patient basis. He will have to go up to Overland Park every morning to get his infusion cassette changed. I think our van could find it's way to the Cancer Center without help!
