Between Naps on the Porch.
In preparation for this day, I went on a little shopping trip which went like this ~
First stop ~ Kohl's: buy1, get 1 free. I love those sales, but not all of the items I wanted were included, so I bought a few pieces for a future tablescape, and I will check back for a better bargain.
Just enough time to hit Marshall's before getting my grandchildren off the bus. Wow, some really neat stuff there, and they were a marriage, not only with my new purchases from Kohl's, but the decor I already have in my sunroom.
I just couldn't wait to get home and unpack all of those bags!
First, the Kohl's bags.... As you can see, these purchases don't exactly fit together......
But look how well the placemats go with the cushions and pillows I covered last year for my sunroom.
and the geraniums.....
Wait until you see what I found at Marshall's!
I couldn't resist that sunflower pitcher I found on the clearance shelf for $7.50. I will just tuck that away for a future tablescape.... And, as for the beachy stuff, a plan is already forming in my mind for a summer tablescape.
I think I am ready for my first Tablescape......
A trip to my pantry produces a charger, purchased several years ago at a Pottery Barn "after-Christmas sale", and a new stemmed water goblet from a recent shopping trip at The Christmas Tree Shoppe. My every day stainless flatware is Gorham "Studio".
The wonderful plate, also, from Marshall's at an incredible price of $4.99
And now the matching bowl...another steal at $3.99. All of the porcelain is from
My geraniums are blooming as though spring has arrived on Lake Ontario. I just love how the colors brighten my room. Perhaps the snow will be gone by May. So, I'll just sit here in my rocking chair and start planning my menu!
Thanks for stopping by.
