THE LAZY HOSTESS SEES DOTS

 

When I sit down to eat, I don’t want to have to get back up, so my polka dot table allows me to eat my dinner without interruption (I just put it all on the table in the beginning!).

When you get the dots out of your eyes, go see all of the tablescape links at Between Naps On the Porch.

I hope you won’t be seeing dots in your eyes for very long.  Thank you for coming to visit.  Please remember to link up for “A Few Of My Favorite Things Saturday”.  I’ll have the linky here Friday night.

This might just be my favorite yet! I love black and white and polka dots are the best! Quirky, happy, wonderful tablescape!!

Oh by the way, re: your new header photo. Is this another stolen...uh, I mean, borrowed photos? Please don't tell me that it's from your very own yard! It's one thing having a lovely home inside, but outside too? It would definitely mean there is no justice in the world!! :)
