Tablescape Tuesday

Pin It Now!

This worked out perfectly...I had nothing to put on my blog today and I happened to hear about Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan ~ Between Naps on My Porch (also known as Moonlight & Magnolias on Rate My Space). She has the most beautiful tablescapes...some people are so gifted with the talent to set a beautiful table and she is one of them!
These are actually old photos that I pulled off the computer so I hope you don't mind seeing reruns. I wasn't even going to post at all today so I'm glad this opportunity came along. I seem to be going through a "Blogger's Block" lately. I hope I'm not all blogged out!
These photos were taken awhile ago. I still have my old dining room table and the hutch is stark white. I've toned that down a bit since then. This is my summer beach cottage tablescape. I had so much fun creating this. It was like I was little girl playing house. So head on over to Susan's blog to see the other bloggers that are participating in Tablescape Tuesday.

I just adore tablescapes, Cindy! I hadn't heard about Tablescape Tuesdays. Not sure I can fit one more thing into my schedule, but I'll be sure to check out everyone else's. I never tire of your beautiful pictures. And yes, I agree, it IS just like playing house when we get to display all our pretties!!

Cindy, Wish we lived close together! You are a VERY talented girl! Everything you do is exceptional. Maybe you should seriously think of helping people shop and rearrange. Start little and move up. You are too talented not to do something you are so good at. Take care, sharon

Your tablescape is wonderful! I love the shells -- such a pretty touch. :) I think blogger's block is going around a lot lately. But your house is so lovely that we don't mind seeing pictures we have already seen. It's like looking back over favorite magazine articles -- always fun!

Yes, your table setting is memorable! I hope you're not getting blogged out. I enjoy stopping by even though it has been awhile. Summertime is kidtime with no momtime! Hope all is well with you.

Beautiful, as usual!! I have an idea for a blog next time you feel a block ~ You mentioned the book "The Fine Art of Accessorizing" a while ago, and I'd really love it if you'd teach us some of the tricks of arranging our treasures so they look as great as yours. Just a thought:)

Have a great day!

I am new to your blog and love reading it. I think it's great that you are showing a repeat, for us newbies that didn't see it before.
I started a blog page, and it's a lot harder than it looks to come up with ideas. You are doing a great job!!!
