Well, I am sharing a two-fer post today...Tabletop Tuesday hosted by the lovely Marty at A Stroll Thru Life and the thoughtfulness of a gal that's a co-worker of my husband's. First, I just started my fall decorating and this display above was just me messing around..not sure if I'm going to keep it this way, or lose the candle, or add a bigger candle. Sometimes you have to decorate something and then just walk away from it for awhile, and tweak it when you come back~ya know what I mean?
Okay, now about my husband's coworker. When Steve came home one day last week he said his coworker, Georgian, had called him telling him that she'd had a couple of tablecloths and a few doilies that her mother and grandmother had made (be still, my heart). It wasn't her style, she said, but wondered if I'd be interested because she reads my blog (blush) and thought they'd work in my house. My sweet husband, knowing me so well, said that I would LOVE them...so she delivered them to him at work. The one in the above pic fits PERFECTLY on my table in the formal dining room..isn't it exquisite?? And made by hand!!!
This runner I set on the buffet in the kitchen and will show it again with a fall display soon!
And a ROUND one for our kitchen table! I was so tickled to get a beautiful crochet round!!
Also tucked inside were these lovely doilies. Thank you so much, Georgian, for entrusting me with your heirlooms of your mother's and your grandmother's! I will use them and treasure them and am so delighted and honored that you thought of me!! Blessings to you!!
