Getting Back Into The Groove

I've been trying to get back into the swing of things lately.....I had been quite sick for the past 6 months.....and I'm hoping that's all behind me now and I can move forward and enjoy life again. I'm still not completely out of the woods....but I'm seeing the light through the trees.....and that makes me very happy!

So....to try and get some normalcy back, I started adding new items to my etsy shop. It felt good to get the 'ol camera back out and snap a few photos. I've already added lots of  vintage goodness....but still have loads to add. One of my favorites is the vintage horse show ribbons....I just love all the colors. Wouldn't they make a great valance for a horse lovers window.

Anyways, here's hoping I'm back for good.

A Spring Table Setting





I took these photos a while ago....but after finding them today on my computer, I thought I'd share them with you for a little spring table inspiration.



I put this together with only things I had on hand.....just a simple and welcoming setting.


I used a linen sheet for the tablecloth and an old european grain sack for the runner.


The centerpiece was of herbs I had in my kitchen at the time....and some fresh cut tomatoes gave it a farm to table feeling. The scissors were for our guests to snip whatever fresh herbs they wanted to sprinkle on their dish.


The napkins were all mismatched....which gave the table a nice relaxed feel.


Happy Spring!
