Love is in the air………

Happy Thursday morning Everyone.. and Happy Ground Hog Day! I had to chuckle this morning….I was in the car on the way home from my early swim when the radio announcer mentioned that today is Ground Hog Day in America (I live in Germany, so you can imagine my surprise). Here I am living in Germany and it takes a German radio announcer to remind me that today is Ground Hog Day!!! Since there is 6 hour time difference, I will have to wait a few hours to see what the ground hog will tell us. I am seriously hoping that winter is on its way out…. I am done with it!  As I am sure all of you are too!

Now, many of you know, that I am not the big Valentine’s Day Fan…..too much sapiness for me, but I do love setting a Valentine’s Day Tablescape!



This little guy was a gift from Marajean…she was my mom’s best friend
and loved my sisters and I as if we were her own children.

Shades of Green

Color of the Year 2017 is PANTONE…..a pretty shade of green!!

You betcha…this inspired me to create a tablescape with green being the primary color! How lucky am I, that I just happen to have a beautiful green tablecloth and of course my lovely green dishes.

Green Tablescape log centerpiece See the birch logs? My husband and I went out in the 10 minute snow storm to find those!!  Not really sure why I couldn’t wait…but once I get an idea in my head,
I tend not to be able to wait! 😁Green Tablescape butter knife with plateFor this tablescape, I decided to set out butter/roll plates with a small knife.
The plate is actually the saucer for the soup bowl, but I think it works
just fine as a butter/roll plate !Green Tablescape candlelight glowGreen Tablescape top view

Let it Snow…Let it Snow

It is snowing in Kleinmachnow…..yes we are finally getting some snow. Now for my fellow germans, we got a lot of snow, but for this Illinois Girl it was a nice start…but by far not enough!!!!!

On days like this, I tend to sit at my desk and surf the web…….Facebook, PeopleMag, Yahoo News and of course Pinterest! Everytime I open Pinterest, I find so many ideas that I want to try out……just not enough time in a day. Recently I stumbled on… what cool a site. Seeing as tablescapes are my thing, I of course checked out their dining room tables and dishes and stemware.. all the fun stuff!

But for now, grab that cup of coffee and enjoy my snowy tablescape!


Once again….cricut explore to the rescue……Love my light blue snow flakes






















Wishing everyone a happy day!
