IT IS NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE!

I guess I took an unscheduled and unannounced blog break.  Taking down Christmas décor left me soooo uninspired.

I can usually go along, happily blogging.  But sometimes I hit this wall.  A wall with writing on it.  The writing says “what is your blog about?; what can you post that anyone would want to come see?; and why do you even have a blog?”

As much as I love my contacts with all of you, the questions on that wall often stop me in my tracks.

When I look at the unique, clever (even brilliant) ideas that people are posting on their blogs, that wall of questions pops up in front of my computer, and I can’t make myself post.

Does that happen to other bloggers, or is it just me?

I wouldn’t have to worry about THE WALL if all of you other bloggers weren’t so talented.

So, would all you brilliant bloggers just dial it down a notch?

I mean, how do you keep coming up with all of these ideas and projects?

You amaze me and you intimidate me.  Who has time to come look at my left-over Christmas tree, decorated for Valentine’s Day, when you are out there posting new, innovative ideas?

Howevah (I say, with my best Arkansas accent), I want to blog, so I’m gonna blog.

In case you were yawning your way through another tablescape on my blog, I’ll leave you with a kiss (nothing like chocolate to bribe a blog reader to return to my blog).  I’ve always said I’d never make it as a salesperson.  My pitch would be, “you wouldn’t want to buy this, would you?”  I guess that carries over to blogging too.

(Red metal charger topped by: white metal charger, red heart doily, clear glass plate, white compote.  Heart doily purchased at $ Store, everything else from estate sales.)

I will be hosting my third annual Valentine link up party on February 11th.  I sure do hope you’ll join in, and spread the love with a Valentine-related post.

I’m partying at Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish Wednesday and Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Our tiny grandson seems to face a new medical battle every day, so please continue to pray for him.  Thank you for visiting me.  laurie
