1, 2, 3... Oh, It's Tuesday!

I borrowed all these pictures online so you can see all the fruits we bought during testing week. Of course, any one of these are present in our home at any given day, but testing week is special so we "power up" our children inside and out! ;-)

Last night, we celebrated my teen daughter's NHS induction and also it is our younger daughter's testing week, so I grabbed the freshest fruits and veggies to feed them to get them ready for any tests! ;-) I think I don't need any explanation on the following. What do you think? ;-)

Thanks for hosting Tam! I love this meme!


TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" watches too much Food Network... Thank goodness for that! LOL) For a unique centerpiece, either create a fruit art or "style" your cut or whole fruits. Wash them first! As the guests start to dine, talk about why you chose those fruits (it goes with the menu and dinnerware of course!) then invite them to take some home or have them in lieu of sugary dessert. You'll be a hit for feeding them something pretty and healthy! Make the overall menu healthy with lime ginger grilled salmon or tuna or shrimp and or have ceviche and grilled chicken with steamed veggies!


  1. Congratulations on your daughter's inducation into the honor society! That is an honor that is earned and does not come easily! I am a firm believer in "brain food" too!

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
