Good evening, hope the first 9 days of 2013 were good for you!
Don't forget the Jan. 23 challenge is SNOW or ICE or Winter related. Hope you will put on your woolen caps and think of something! Southern gals, I know this might be tough for you, especially if you don't get much winter weather...
It was a gray day here, not cold, but gloomy.
I had 2 of these gray wool fringed throws that I have never used.. Kohl's, after the season, so I think they were 5 bucks each. I think they look a little masculine, so I tried to keep that look.
The salt and peppers are from Pfaltzgraf Tent Sale, 1.00...
The centerpiece is a pip berry white wreath with a hurricane and wintery white candle
The ribbed glassware has a black foot, so I went with gray, black and white.
Black charger, gray rimmed plate with a white center from the .99 store.
Treble clef black flatware, black white and gray check napkins, .96 clearance.
Lions head covered soup bowls from WS Outlet.
Little lion head bowls for our butter from Target..
Black mugs by Nautica. I got them years ago at the Pflaltzgraf Clearance center for .26, and they are made in the USA! The glasses were from there too.
It closed several years ago, and maybe it is a good thing as they had fantastic deals. There was always something new. You really could get carried away! (One time the fire alarms went off and the whole group of stores had to be evacuated. I hadn't been able to complete my purchase, so I walked to another part of the outlet, shopped, and then went back to pay for my bargains!)
No little fire was stopping me, lol! I know, that is really pathetic. I am reformed. :)
People used to go there and buy things and put it on ebay and charge unreal prices!
I hope you are cozy and warm this winter day!
That's it for my simple, manly table. DH doesn't like a lot of "accoutrements" cluttering up the table, so perhaps he will approve of this one.
He does like food cluttering the table, and this is last night's dinner...
Romaine salad with feta and bacon, shrimp, and seafood cakes... I made the cakes with shrimp, crab, onion, celery, lemon juice, egg, a little mayo and breadcrumbs...
Form into a patty, dredge in Panko crumbs and brown...
Place in oven to finish baking.. Top with horseradish sauce mixed with mayo. You can make them small as an appy. These are dinner size...
I look forward to seeing what you have this week.
