Hi everyone! I am finally feeling like myself again after surviving the 95 degree heat over Memorial Day. It's back to the 60's and I am loving it. I plan to plant some flowers tomorrow and it's going to be the perfect weather! As you know, The Husband went up to the lake without me Sunday to Monday night. He spent a lot of time in the garden re potting the hibiscus trees and our new rose tree. My climbing rose is blooming like mad and he took pictures of it with his phone. Sadly, I can't get them to post so I'll take my own pictures this coming weekend to share. These are some blooms he cut off that were losing petals. Do you recognize the ugly brown wicker tray now that I have painted it with my Driftwood Gray? Paint is so addicting! And growing roses. Tracie, I hope I qualify for your garden party this week at Fishtail Cottage!
Before I move on to the tablescape, I wanted to share these heirloom tomatoes with you. Aren't they funky? I haven't planted my tomatoes yet, but I am going to try some heirloom tomatoes myself. Tonight we are going to have these babies with some fresh Mozzarella cheese and basil which is going crazy in my herb garden.
I have a simple table set this week...it really belongs outside but my patio furniture is still in the shed, so this will have to do.
Just the flowers and a candle for the centerpiece. The napkins are white hemstitch and my silverware is mismatched.
The dinner plate is from Pier 1. I think it is my favorite of all the dishes I have and that is partly because The Husband and kids picked them out for me for Mother's Day a few years ago. The salad plates are from Target.
I love this pattern and wish the dishes at Pier 1 weren't so bold this spring. I love old fashion flowers. I am joining Katleen's party, Let's Dish, at Cuisine Kathleen. Visit and see some beautiful tablescapes and make some new friends!
I am enjoying this short week. I thought we had a wedding to go to this weekend, but it's the next so I am anxious to be back at the lake. Hear it calling me?! Not much else is new, I am back to the routine now that I am home from vacation. A lot of reading and working on my herb garden. Emily is off tomorrow and we have some serious planting to do. Hopefully The Husband will bring out our umbrella, table and chairs and I can start whiling away my afternoons outdoors! Heaven! :) See you soon!
