I've got this blog on autopilot this week since it's been another busy one.
I am so happy that it's the weekend!
Isn't this the cutest napkin ring?
They were a gift from an old blog friend and I just adore them.
For whatever reason.. I really like them with the blue plaid napkins.
Since I had bought the new pottery barn napkin rings for the dining room
I needed to find a new home for these sweet little trees.
They fit in the kitchen perfectly.
I love the softness of the colors of this table scape..
I am mixing plaids ~ but I think that since they are different sizes that they work together..
~ what do you think?
The snowman dishes are Debbie Mum..
They were a gift from my old neighbor many years ago
and they never get old.
I still love them.
I almost want to change the red checked curtains..
I have some extra green "table cloth" material to make some
.. but do I feel like doing it
Have a seat and make yourself at home.
