My paper wreath...
I do not consider my self to be the
best craftier in town.
So, I was quite proud of myself when
I made this paper wreath
out of old book pages.
and I think it turned out lovely!
I am a little proud of myself.
However, I must say
that it was quite easy.
I still do not consider myself a
but at least I was able to tackle this project
and finish it without tears!

Ok, while I am on the table scape kick,
I thought I would share my spring table...
again, same dishes, napkins, and silverware... I just added some twiggy greenery with little pink buds tied to the back of the chair,
(I wish I could say it is a vintage flat sheet from the South of France,
but alas, it is not, so K-mart it is for me.)
with the twiggy pink buds thrown in them,
the silver ware and a twig together.
but boy does it make me long for Spring.
Especially, during these long, dreary January days.
It makes the table scape look even more effortless.
I like for my guests to feel like my preparations took little effort.
That way they feel free to enjoy themselves,
and not worry about messing anything up.
I can literally throw it in the washer with some bleach,
and ta-da, ready to use again.

A romantic table scape for two...
this table has an old fashion love affair feel....
I used the same dishes, linens, and silverware
as in the previous post.
from a self-playing piano
as the table runner,
and an old valentine
that I framed and sat on an easel.
size, and color,
to hold the napkin and silverware.
It adds a little interest to the typical placesetting.
so what better way to show how grand my love
is for my hubby than
an old fashioned romantic, candle-lit
dinner for two
on valentine's day at home?
So, that is how I plan on spending my Valentine's Day.
Cheers to you and your valentine.
May your love be grand year round!

It seems like winter will never end,
so instead of running away from it.
I am embracing it!
Here is my dining room table with a winter table scape.I just used my everyday off-white dishes,
some white tulips, mercury glass,
with the flake snow.
Such a contrast,

My youngest daughter
Mary Morgen's 4th birthday celebration...
so it is hard to have birthday celebrations
with much of a theme other than Christmas.
so that it actually feels like a real birthday party.
This year I just did pink and blue.
No theme, just a color scheme.
that also doubled as the take-home favors.
standing by all the goodies to gobble up.
with each of her guests in an empty frame.
I am going to use these for the thank you notes.
some of the guests creating...
big sister getting her face painted.
put on the floor for the bean bag toss game.
Mogie getting ready to play the bean bag toss game.
for the kids to fill up at the "Sweet Shoppe"
in her special crown, made by
my special friend.
that hung from the dining chandelier
the tall towering cupcakes....
"Mogie and ME"
pink french lemonade and blue bottled water
the gumball guessing game...
more of the sweet shoppe...
but at the end of the party
when the guests were leaving,
we ties little notes to their wrists
like a bracelet that read:
