Last Friday night Terry hosted a table for a women's event at her church. Every host was to decorate or "tablescape' her table. She asked me to help and this is what I came up with. It was a beautiful event, with every table unique. Enjoy!
I started the centerpiece with a green feather wreath I found at TJ Maxx (best place ever). And added in the center a grouping of mercury glass candlesticks (thanks Allie!).
The place settings are Arte Italica. I know, beaut right? Purchased from my sister's AWESOME store M&Co. (that sadly :( shut it's doors this summer) The stemware is Williams-Sonoma and the flatware is Villeroy&Boch.
And yes! Those are REAL flowers. Women were asking all day and all night. What? The cute green mercury vases are from Domestic Bliss. And the hobnail pitcher below? Anthropologie.

This is the result of the only job I've ever had. Almost 22 years in the making...
Rio is a gorgeous girl inside and out. Never afraid of a challenge or rescuing a stray chihuahua. She has the biggest heart and smile to match. But most importantly she truly FEELS with her heart. If you know her, you love her. Her crazy creativity is just beyond, the girl can seriously figure out how to make ANYTHING!!
Ryne is the thinker. He sees the world as it is with the honesty and wisdom of someone twice his age. He's got the brains like his Dad, and will no doubt follow in his footsteps. He too has an amazing heart, always ready with a hug and a smile for his "pearl" ( his name for me). He's a lover of the earth and wishes he could save it. :)
I guess I'm trying to say, that I thank the Lord every day for trusting me to raise these babies. When you're in the thick of it and you don't know exactly how it's going to turn out it can be quite worrisome. Trust me, I've had my days, and many sleepless nights with these two. But sitting there tonight listening to them be the adults they have grown up to be, I sorta gave myself a little pat on the back. It was aaaallllll worth it, and I'd do it all again... :)

So yesterday while sifting thru my makeup, I happened to notice the unused space on the back of the door. That's some prime real estate I thought! I can make use of that!!
So off to Home Depot I went. I found these squares of galvanized roof flashing already cut in 6x7 inch squares. I bought 4 for each door and secured them with this miracle adhesive called lightning bond. This stuff is sooo easy to use and works in seconds.
