Tablescape Thursday - Winter table #2




Hello Sweet Friends,

So how are you this fine Wednesday??
Finer that frog hair??  As my hubby
would say!!  lol
Hope so!!

It is a good thing I got so much done last week......
cause the last 2 days I have not been very productive 
at all.  Something is out of place in my back and my
back was hurting all day yesterday along with a nice
 headache.  Everytime I move the wrong way it takes
 my breathe away..........but not in a good way!!  lol

But I am happy to report I am feeling mucho
better today,  thank goodness!!
Haven't gotten much physical work done today
 either,  but we have accomplished spiritual and
 relational work,  so that is even better.  
We all need time for that!


Well, here my 2nd Winter Tablescape.
This was from last Saturday.


Decided to use a fruit bowl in the centerpc.
with some candles and potpourri.



Remember I told you I made some cute place cards???
Well,  here they are!!



I have had these separate lil salt and peppers 
for a long time and haven't used them,  but
thought I would put them and a small butter
 dish between each couple so we didn't have 
to do so much passing at the table.



Here is my placecard.....you will see it again but changed
 by photoshop affects at the end of the post


A nice overview shot!!


and another!!  I have to say I love this tablecloth,
it is so versatile and goes with so much.
Would have never thought to look for one 
this color, but just happened on to it last year.
It has been a huge blessing many times already.


The candle on the left is a yankee candle called "Cranberry
woods" and does it have the nicest aroma.  Just wonderul!!



As I told you before I use reds to decorate
for Winter,  so this is totally normal colors
for us this time of year!




DeeAnna gave me the fruit bowl and it has
mostly wooden fruit in it,  but I always jazz
it up a lil in Winter with some red faux
 apples, and grapes..

  
This is from the other side of the table.



This is also from the opposite side of the table.


This is from one end of the table










  
This has a posterized affect.


This is the normal picture.
Gotta get some candlelight in here too!!


This is posterized




So Glad you dropped in............
Great hearing from you!!

Have a Wild Wednesday!!


Make sure to check back after
10 P.M. tonight as I will be linking
 up to Susan over

Very nice name tags! I think my favorite picture is the one from above. It looks like you may have stood on your chair to take the picture. If you did, please BE CAREFUL!
Your loving SIL,

Everything looks great. I like the name tags and the little salt and pepper shakers really set the table off too. Very pretty.
Oh how bright and ceerful your red and white table setting is. Love the new name tags.

Nellie, I love your pretty, festive table! The dishes and those cute, cute checks on the linens and the precious little placecards you made. Great job!

XO,

Lovely, Nellie! I sure wish I had a set of dishes like yours as I am planning tow dinner parties for February and I need white dishes. guess I may have to go looking for some! I bet it was nice to meet Megan's parents. That is always a nice thing to have behind you. Once you find out they are just sweet ordinary people everyone relaxes.

I hope you are feeling better. Don't you just hate it when you throw your back out? It is painful and really slows us down. But then that part may not be all that bad. Hope you are resting! I had not good reason but just didn't do a lit today. I read my books and blogged and watched a movie and did a little cleaning and laundry and that was it.

Jim is determined to do our day trip tomorrow. Yikes they come around too fast for me but they are so enjoyable. This weekend we are going to my brother's place in Napa for the Super Bowl. Could not care less about football but I do love getting together with my brothers and their wives. Napa is so beautiful and only about an hour from here. I'll take some photos to share next week.

Hope you and Jimmy are having some fun! Anything new with the old boss or anything?

Talk to you soon!

Love, B

What a welcoming "country" table! I love how you combined the floral with the red and white check. It really "pops!"

Sorry to hear about your back. Been there-done that! Thank goodness for a great chiropractor!

Very pretty table...love the plates. The place cards are really nice...I should try making some, one of these days.
Hope you get rid of the backache, they are no fun.
Love your post. the red checkers really set it off for the rest of the table. Homey and pretty.
I've been meaning to add Photoshop for quite a white, and you have inspired me to get after it! Your place cards are wonderful. I agree with you...the tablecloth is a wonderful staple for your tablescaping. Thank you for sharing your charming designs. Cherry Kay

Have a Resting Sunday!

Happy Sunday Morning to You Sweet Friends, And Happy Spring!! She has finally officially arrived. I decided to try a new meme today,  it is called  "Shadow Shot Sunday". I am going to combine it with my Sunday verse   for  the day  which I haven't done for  awhile.  Thought it would  work great  together. I am linking up to the "Hey Harriet blog" So.....if you want to check out all the other shadow shots,   just click here. The header photo is of my bathroom  window,  very early  in the morning,  just as day is breaking. You will see the sun coming up more and more. I only wish the camera could have captured the way the light was dancing on the window pane, truly a beauty to behold! I took these at different stages as you can probably tell from the amount of light coming in the window, and now onto the valance. It was truly fun and fascinating to watch! Remember.......................... He who dwells in the shelter of th
