First of all, i'd like to thank everybody for leaving me such sweet comments on my fireplace makeover, your comments really mean a lot to me!
My table setting was inspired by my grain sack placemats. Adding placemats is an easy way to dress up any table setting. i'll be sharing a tutorial on how to make these grain sack placemats in the next couple of days.
i found these beautiful vintage turquoise plates at a garage sale here in Santa Barbara. They look perfect as a salad plate over a simple white dinner plate. They are accented by antique silverware passed down from my Great Aunt.
The glassware and coffee mugs are both from Anthropologie.
in the center of the table a pile of uncovered old books act as a base for two vintage purple jars filled with freshly cut lavender from my Mother's garden.
For a little ambiance i hung tea lit mason jars from the tree and the French ladder adds a nice rustic touch.
My fiancé and i had some time to ourselves to enjoy the romantic space I had created. The fun part was we have a couple of things to celebrate..
i signed up to run the Disneyland Half Marathon with a girlfriend,
tied for first place in a photo contest (I'll be sharing more of that soon)..
and my fiance who is a real estate agent will be closing a big escrow next week!
i just can't believe how fast this summer is going!!!
i'll be catching up on everybody's blog over the next couple of days.
until next time,
I'm sharing this at..
