Welcome to My Place to Yours and a brand new year of playing in the dishes. If you’re a new visitor, I hope you’ll feel very welcome … and come again often!
If you’re a longtime friend, I’m very glad you’re back. If you’re like me, different blogs evoke different emotions in you. Some make me laugh; some make me cry; some inspire my creativity; some challenge me. There’s one blog that causes me to relax and slow down every.single.time. It’s Cabin & Cottage. While it’s true I was already working on this post when I saw Jacqueline’s The Year in Tablescapes, I guess “borrowing” her idea still makes me a copycat blogger. I told her immediately.
Other than the “year in tablescapes” idea, however, our posts have very little in common because Cabin & Cottage is the epitomy of a beautiful “white” blog … and this one isn’t. Jacqueline’s gorgeous white dishes and vintage linens. Her masterful way of combining elements into beautiful vignettes, and her photography that is so amazing I can only dream of ever achieving something so stunning. I love it all … but white would just never work at my house. Maybe in a very small, self-contained space … but the reality is, I visit Jacqueline when I need a dose of calming white. Thank you, Jacqueline for sharing such beauty with us all!

What fun I had playing in the dishes last year! My tablescapes aren’t as easily recognizable as Jacqueline’s, but these are my personal favorites. Does that mean they define my “style” … and does that style have a name? I have no idea. Any suggestions? (Click on any title to see the original post.)
