Things in my House Thursday~~The Little Things that Make Me Smile

We have our dining room table back.

This is what it has looked like since March 13th,
when we started our kitchen project...
...it was making me kinda crazy...

So...tonight...I have been putting kitchen things away...
...clearing off the table... and all the kitchen stuff in the living room...


I just love my spring swag from Hobby Lobby...
It extends the length of the table...
And it's easy to change the swag for each season.


The centerpiece is a three tier plate stand.
On the bottom tier...
Pears from Hobby Lobby...and chippy white plates from our old farmhouse.
The Middle Tier...
Those wine goblets?  Wedding gifts from 29.75 years ago...
And our awesome Nutmeg Grinder...
a gift from sweet daughter, Amy and her boyfriend.
The top tier...
Those quaint pears from my mug mat swap partner, Tina.
And the pineapple salad servers are from Line, when she came home from her trip to Hawaii.


I'm looking forward to having things back to normal.
I will have new kitchen pictures to share...
...soon.

Take care,
~Natalie

Hi Natalie,
Your table looks great. Love the nutmeg grinder!! Just wondering if you ever received the email I sent you on March 20th about winning one of my give aways. Just need your snail mail address. Maybe I have the wrong email address.
Take care,
Karen

Your table looks so pretty! I adore your tiered plate stand! I have one that is similar. I recently put my antique green glass plates and fresh lemons on it. Makes me smile!

I can't wait to see your kitchen!
Well, that cluttered table full of stuff would have driven me nuts too...right now that is my entire outside area and my guest room: FULL OF STUFF. Oy.
Your table centerpiece is so inspiring....I might do something like this WHEN i get my table back into the house...maybe tomorrow???
I have a few of those tiered plate stands...love them for parties.
