How nonchalantly some friendships begin! Some of you will know my friend as “Bonnie Bee” and will immediately think of the thoughtful and encouraging comments she leaves around Blogland. Well, this week, I received an email from her in which she shared what she called “amateur” pictures of her Thanksgiving tablescape. Knowing how some of us become a little “attached” to our collectibles, Bonnie wanted to give me a chance to visit the pinecone glasses in their new home, saying they remind her of me and our co-ownership of their provenance. I love that!
I love her tablescape, too!
“Amateur” pictures … Sheesh! They look great, don’t they?
Lots of great textures … I wonder if Bonnie’s going to put place cards in these little wire pumpkins.
Gorgeous balance of colors … and lots of pretty Fall touches in the background, too!
I love it when my non-blogging friends let me share their handiwork with you! Bonnie, I’m so glad you agreed to venture a little further into Blogland. I know My Place to Yours readers … and they’re lovin’ your table! They’re just hoping you’ll send more pics next time! (If you want the details about this table, you’ll find them at the bottom of this post.)
Speaking of “next time” … The post I had planned to share with you today? I’ll get it ready for Metamorphosis Monday. It’s about where I spent last Saturday morning. The Before was that I thought I was “just” going to the auction of a great old house.
The After was that it was still fully furnished (yes, I do mean “furnished”) with the owners’ transferware collection …
Yeah, I thought so … I’ll see you Sunday night. Four days later, and I’m still experiencing inspiration overload! This is a post you dish lovers will not want to miss.
