The Painted Apron

In a previous post, I told you that, right now, things are kind of hectic “in my neck of the woods”.  Well, they are still hectic.  I hope you find some inspiration in this post, but you won’t find much commentary.  Hopefully, my real life will slow down soon.

Those are some real beautiful tablescapes you've found! The Doris Day in me loves the yellow flowers pouring out of the pitcher! Where's Rod Taylor! LOL Loving that long table under the covered porch dressed out in blues too! Hope things slow down for you. Have a great weekend!

WOW!!! I love them all. My very favorite is the one with the yellow where the centerpiece looks like flowers pouring out of a pitcher. I really want to try to copycat that.

I hope your life slows down soon. I can definitely relate, Laurie.

Laurie, I see a theme here! These are gorgeous tablescapes. Makes me want to plan an alfresco dinner party. Too bad TX weather is at it's coldest.
We work to snow on the ground this morning. Not a good time to dine on the terrace. Ha!
