Well as you can see, I fell off the blog bandwagon, and I realize that it is very much like exercising. If you quit, it is really hard to start back up! So note to self, don't procrastinate, BLOG! Even though it is now incredibly old news, we did have a fantastic time in NYC. The plays were great, the food fantastic, museums inspiring; it all went by too fast. We could have easily stayed another week. If you have never been, go to New York, there is nothing like it.
Fast forward and Thanksgiving is bearing down upon us! Can you believe it? It's time to get ready for entertaining, holiday dinners and decorating! In the shop right now I have a beautiful dining table the perfect size for large dinner parties. The armchairs are a pair of fantastic Hickory White modified wing chairs upholstered in a heavy linen. The scale is a little oversized and it creates a stunning effect at the table. Of course they are beautiful as living room chairs too, but I really liked them paired with the dining table. On the tabletop I have a wonderful set of vintage dishes. As you prepare for the holidays think about what you have. Do you have a set of dishes that you rarely use--or does your mom? If not think about looking for vintage dishes that you can mix and match. Remember, you don't have to wait to inherit dishes--they are readily available at estate sales and thrift stores or here at said!
Thanks for reading, and I promise to not fall off the blog bandwagon again!
