For me, that is exactly what decorating is! Therapy. Something I can control to a greater degree than I can the other parts of my life.
Plus it's an excuse to visit Michael's and buy RED candles I was whining about in an earlier post.
Earlier in the day, these were the candles on the table! Burgandy.
I set the table....
....just for Marty's Table Top Tuesday..
Yes..I know I showed this in an earlier post..but I just love it.
I used the crystal cake cover with a silver cake plate on a pedistal instead of the one that came with it many years ago from Princess House. One of my garage sale finds. (The silver cake plate)
My Target dishes I've been wanting and my EXPENSIVE garage sale find silver.
"Prelude" is billed as "the most beautiful silverware ever made." :) Not so sure but a $4,100 set of silver in it's case for $10?!! I still grin when I think of it. Some of you may remember that day.
*tsk tsk! Yes I know the forks are backward and the butter knife belongs on a bread plate! *
My beloved hutch. The girls ribbon drawer is on the right. I would go to the material store and buy a yard of everything that appealed to me. Take it home and halve each yard. The girls got their choice for school in the morning. Some of the stray ribbons are still in the drawer after all these years. I can't seem to bear to throw it away. My youngest daughter of the four will be 43 in August. *sniff*
I left the winter berries on the top of the hutch...I love the look.
I also left the red lace runner. Did I tell you I LOVE red?
And this little country heart..the more hearts the merrier!
Have I told you that your prayers are working.. that all your love and positive thoughts send our way seem to be having results.? We tip toe through every day...and say at the end of the day...so far, so good. Thank you!
I am joining my friend, Marty @ Table Top Tuesday for another fun time looking at pretty tabletops...and getting idea's and being inspired. Thanks, Marty!!
