A big HELLO and WELCOME! Some of you, I already know, some not yet, but I hope after today, we can all be great blog buddies! And if you have never heard of SITS, then you should so click on the icon above and get commentin' cuz that's what it's about, becoming a part of the commenting sisterhood! Some blogger I know compared commenting to chocolate and how she loves chocolate, and another, to being the life of a blog, so you know how excited I am to "read" you all here! I think comments are such a great alternative to an "early morning, but no longer groggy" coffee buzz; though, I am not a fan... ;-)
This little corner of Blogland is where I collect posts on my TABLESCAPING ADVENTURES! I am the crazy (creative) lady who makes my husband ask, "What Now?" Yes, I love to decorate and all that homey stuff, but since you can only do so much when you have no money and you're in a temporary dwelling, tabletop designing is my next love! The other part of me, I'm a SAHM to three, who's been married to a great man for over twelve years! Oh yeah, I'm crazy about purple and I'm not too girly! We're talking "jeans and t-shirt" anytime, baby!
Heather and Tiffany of SITS (The Secret's in the Sauce), so made my day when I got the email that I'll be featured today and since today is the normal day to do tablescapes, perfect! *woot woot* I didn't have to mess up my hair in coming up with what to wow you with. I'll just do another tablescape or a wonderful placesetting! (oh no, I'm choosing, that could lead to more thinking...)LOL
Ok, first some refreshment... "Brain", what can we serve all these wonderful SITS VIPs? How about some ice cold lemonade! "Brain", you're a genius! Oh, yeah, "Brain" is the other master of this themed blog, she makes sure that I don't overspend on our growing collection of tabletop goodies and that I take lots of pictures! We make a great team, ask anybody! :-)
As you know, tablescaping extends to being the best hostess you can be, so of course I have the "tried and true" cold lemonade to greet you with! Enjoy!
Then join me for some great food (did you bring some? LOL), after all, you are the "Star of the Day" just for stopping by! Which by the way is the theme of this placesetting! Clever, huh? The hubs told me do a Martha Stewart table, but with two smallish kiddos running around, time is the first thing to go out the window! (No wonder time flies!) *wink*...so sit down and enjoy your stay!
My style is thrifty, doable and spans all styles. Let's take this placesetting for example... the plates, from Ambiance called, "Aristocrat" in yellow, I got from Ebay for only $1.87 a piece!
The "Life" placemat, FREE since I won it from another great blogger, the goblet, Gorham's "Rose Serenade", I found at Tuesday Morning for only $4; normally $10!
Faux flowers and Libbey's "Star" bowl, Dollar Tree for $1 each and the red Kitchen waffle weave towel for a napkin, Target clearance for 50 cents!
If you ever need ideas for your next table, then this is one of the great stops for you! I do mean only one as there are lots of talented tablescapers or thrifty queens out there, like our lovely meme hosts for today, Susan and Leigh!
This is the day where all lovers of tablescaping get together and "wow" each other through each table. There are no hard fast rules, just have fun and don't be afraid to use what you already have. As long as you can tell the readers how you arrived at your tablescape design thought process, you got us drooling!
Especially me, I love to learn how others think about the way they see things. That's why I started blogging about my tabletop designs. So I can learn more techniques!
Now don't forget to explore the "TABLESCAPE TOUR" on the sidebar to see my other tablescapes! Why not just show you pictures? Well, clicking is half the fun, right? ;-)
Enjoy, linger and make sure you come back now, you hear? Oh and don't forget the award I have for you on the sidebar, you earned it by visiting! You are fab-u-lous!
Thanks for sharing my great day, everybody! SITS Rocks!
