Welcome to a  pretend Valentine celebration. It has been a long time since I have posted. There are times you just need a rest and the time to regroup. I've set the table for eight  today to celebrate Valentine's Day. It would make a perfect Galentine table with red and white with gold accents and a little pink. One of these days I am going to have a real Galentine party. The camellias  in my centerpiece all came from my garden and it was a thrill for me to create arrangements from my garden. We had a hard freeze forecast and my bushes were full of blooms and many buds. So I ..read more

Valentine's Day is fast approaching. In thinking about Valentine's Day, I remembered a song my parents were fond of named,  Let Me Call You Sweetheart. The song was written in 1910 and Bing Crosby made the song very popular in 1945, the year my parents married.  Let me call you sweetheart I'm in love with you Let me hear you whisper That you love me too Keep the love light glowing  In your eyes so blue Let me call you Sweetheart I'm in love with you Beth Slater Whitson- Lyrics Leo Freedman- Music Welcome to a Valentine Tablescape blog hop sponsored by Rita @Pa ..read more

I'm glad you joined me today for the Welcome Fall Tablescape Blog hop.  This blog hop is sponsored by Rita @Panoply We appreciate all of Rita's work and organization in keeping this group together. It is hard to believe that fall is on the way soon. It is slower to feel like fall in the deep south because it is still very warm here.  This vintage Provencal tablecloth was bought in Provence, in 1997, by my mother-in-law. I deliberately chose to keep the table simple without chargers or placemats to be able to view the design of the  tablecloth.  T ..read more
