Places, Please...

Hosted by Susan and Leigh

As I don't have time to just whip out a new tablescape lately, I figure I'd join in with some placesettings instead!

All of the pieces were bought between 60-80% off, which makes them that much more fun to work with! Enjoy going down memory lane with me thru these placesettings...

"Beautiful Together"

"Carolyn, meet Carolyn"

"Happy Holidays"

"Color Me Grateful"

"A Family Holiday"

"Autumn Romance"

"Winter Flurry Swirls"

"Instant Asian"

"For Couples Only"

TABLESCAPING IDEAS: "Brain" is feeling nostalgic... Take pictures of your past tables, it serves as a reminder as well as a "cheat-chit"when you are running out of ideas over the same pieces. It's also a quick reference for a table idea when you have friends stopping by, now!

Thank you to our lovely hosts, Susan and Leigh and to all who stopped by and left me feelin' the love!

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.
