Table runner is here...

After going shopping all day on Saturday, I come home and find a big package sitting on the dining table.. I knew exactly who that was from!
In celebration of her 100th post she had a sweet give away
and guess who won?
That would be 

After arranging my bowl of apples on my new table runner, I had a thought...
This is way to pretty for just a bowl of apples to be sitting on top of it, so I get in my car 
and head for the supermarket in search for some pretty flowers
I find these pretty

I got so excited that I broke some flowers off.

Love the tassel!

This table runner got me
Why don't I have more
Table runners?

I a see a future project coming!!
my head is spinning out of 
control with all these
crazy ideas..

Wait, that would require sewing...


Oh, Judy
look what you started...

I did not sleep all night!

And as a BONUS she gave away this sweet vintage silver ladle.. I looked all around my kitchen for a perfect home, and then I found it!... On my mossy pot twig swag  that sits on my bakers rack...I think it blends in very well!
Thank you, so much Judy!

    Love the polka dots. They always make me smile and I love that ladle. Enjoy your new toys.

  2. Hi there, I love the table runner-it is so fun!!! The colors of the carnations are perfect for it too. I think you're going to be making a lot of them.

  7. I was so pleased when Judy announced that you were the winner! What a perfect month to receive the pretty thing. I tend to forget about runners too but your table always looks dressed with one and tablecloths get messy so quickly. Love the silver ladle too!

  8. Such a nice give away! By the way - love your recipe from your last post. Yes, growing up in San Antonio TX you could say we had many of those kinds of meals.

    Oh, hopefully in about a week I'll have a give away - maybe you can win again!

  25. Marissa - it didn't work. I still can't reply back to you. Maybe your husband can help you.
