Spring feels so far away, especially when it is snowing like crazy here in Iowa! But I scored these gorgeous flowers from my nieces bridal shower yesterday, so I am pretending it is spring. Can you blame me? I don’t know about you guys, but I love seeing beautiful tablescapes when I scroll through Instagram or Pinerest. But Really? Who does this? I mean, for an everyday table do you set your table up all pretty and leave it set? I would love to, but let’s be realistic, I have grandkids. One in particular would drive his tractors all over this table and probably end up breaking a plate or two.
Then there is Mike. “Why is the table set?” “Is someone coming over?” Me: “No, I put them there because they look pretty” Him: “Huh?” So I took some pretty pictures and put it all away. It’s what I do :), blog life!
I absolutely love this dining table that I transformed when we moved into this house. You can read about it [here]. However when we move to the new house, I am really wanting a new table. Something more like the table Dad and I built for the lake house. Mike and I have a project list a mile long, I hope we can get them all done before we move!
In the new house we will have some open shelving in the kitchen. Not sure what I will put on them, but I bought some new plates from Kohl’s in case I want to show them off. My old dishes were probably 20 years old, I think it was time for some new one’s, don’t you agree?
The wicker chairs were a steal from a FB swap page, originally purchased from Pier One for $200 ea. I stole them for $150 for the pair. The jute chargers are from Kohl’s, pretty sure I found them on clearance. Love me some good deals. And my table runner from Target’s new Magnolia line.
Keep warm and think spring.
