Simple & Sweet Summer Supper

I love to set a pretty table.
I just don't take time to do it very often.
I thought it would be fun to join in some of the
tablescape parties this week so this is what
 I came up with 
for a simple summer supper.
These are my everyday dishes - I just dressed them up with some
 cloth napkins, placemats, and flowers.
I wanted to do it while the peonies were still in bloom.
What could be more perfect for a pretty table?
Here is the menu for our supper....
What?  There are only desserts on the menu?
Oh...this would be my fantasy dinner menu!
I'll have one of each - five courses, right?
- - -YUM- - -
...now you know why I called it a Simple & Sweet Summer Supper...
I would love for you to join me!
Now we just need someone to prepare the five courses!!

Join me here for some other inspiring tablescapes:

Thanks so much for visiting - I do appreciate it and all of your sweet comments!

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!
JoAnne

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
