January blahs...what to do? Too soon for Valentine's Day!
The photo in my header is from Jan. 2011.
You can see the details here. It was the first time I made the rose cupcakes, and the directions are linked.
They are on the green footed plate in the top right of the picture.
I don't want you to think I am jumping to St. Patrick's Day, although I have been thinking about the 5th Annual Blog Crawl!
Next week is the SNOW~ICE~WINTER CHALLENGE, so I didn't want to do something on that theme.
I bought this red and black check tablecloth at Kohls before Cmas, and this flatware from World Market. I hadn't used it yet, so today was the day. Very dreary, cold and rainy, but we escaped the snow that many of you got.
Red and black checked tablecloth, black place mat, red square plate, white salad, and red covered bowl.
The red square plates I have used a lot, and they are by Pfaltzgraff, they were 1.00 in one of their on line sales. I have them in yellow too.
The flatware is from World Market, as are the little red covered bowls.
Short black glasses hold votives, they are from $ Tree.
Black napkins with some dried baby's breath tucked in.
Black goblet from Pier One, and black footed ribbed glass from Pfaltzgraff, both several years ago.
The centerpiece is my Lion's Head Tureen from WS Outlet, filled with hydrangea, sprayed black and some baby's breath .
My tip for Yvonne's TTT is to dry your hydrangea and spray them any color you want. I have done gold and silver for Christmas centerpieces, and red for patriotic holidays.
I didn't make anything new this week, so I will show something for ♥ day from the past.
These are small heart shaped cakes. Use a cookie cutter to cut out part of the cake. Dust with confectionery sugar. Fill with cherry pie filling.
You could be really decadent and dip the cake in chocolate before you fill it!
Eat the part you cut out, you deserve it! :)
The Tablescaper and I went bargain hunting at CTS yesterday. We did well!
How about this 60x84 Nordic looking tablecloth. The snowshoes and skis are embroidered.
I think Debbie at Mountain Breaths
would like it!
It was a whopping .98! I'll show some more of the bargains we found in this weekend's post.
Now let's see what you were up to this week!
One table related link, no word id, and a link back to this post, PLEASE. If there is no link back, your entry will be deleted.
BLOG NAME FIRST, you have unlimited letters to describe your entry.
A comment is always appreciated, and I know so many of you make a great effort to visit the entries.
If you don't have time to visit some of the others, I would rather you not link up.
One of the biggest complaints I hear about parties is that bloggers take the time to link up and visit, but they don't get many return visits. I know that is not the case here.
Thank you for understanding.
Thanks for stopping by, and see you this weekend for Bargain Show and Tell! :)
READY, SET, GO!
