Well, Eli's been up since 2 am and I am sooooo tired. As soon as the hubby gets up, I'm going back to bed.
In the meantime, I've been surfing the blog world...and found a new favorite:
Did you know that setting a table could be a sport? I didn't......and I am soooo excited!!! I LOVE TO SET A TABLE! So, I'm joining in this week's Tablescape Thursday blog carnival over at Between Naps On The Porch.
I'm not sure of all the rules for it yet, and I'm so tired I can hardly think - so I'm going to cheat a little my first time and use pictures from last year's Thanksgiving dinner that we hosted at our house. I hadn't hosted T-Day in 10 years, and was bursting with excitement.
I love vintage aluminum....and gold leaf glassware. Here you will see pieces from both my collections. The dishes are from Pier One. They were on clearance last summer and I was able to get service for 8 for about $200.00. The colors go perfect in our new house. The green bowl you see was my Momma's. She served green beans in it every Thanksgiving! When she died three years ago, I knew I had to have that bowl...and I break it out every November. So, if you ever invite me to Thanksgiving at YOUR house, be prepared for the dish I bring to be in this bowl. Sorry if it clashes with your table.....but it makes me feel like my Momma is there with me :)
