~ More White in the Diningroom~










As I type this post, our driveway fairy still hasn't arrived, so the lane to the shop and out the drive is still full of drifts. I'm not sure of the snow fall we've received during the blizzard of 2011. Today, has hosted us with tons of sunshine, after days of clouds it is welcome. The winds still continue to blow with a bit more drifting going on. This weekend's forecast shows yet another couple of days forecast for snow. Guess it might as well do it and get it over with, all of us this way are ready for Spring and green as many of you are.

Do you miss your chargers. I secretly reached in the computer and "borrowed" them! No, I wouldn't do that....but I might give it a thought IF I could. I just love them!!

A white table is so fitting with the weather of late! I really like your dishes, flatware and the rooster centerpiece but above all, I love your dining table and chairs!

Very pretty!
I have not even been out today. Need to check the mail, but dread opening the door. "They" are predicting light snow here 2 more times in the next week.:(

Dolores said...

I can't believe I'm saying I like the table, because I'm not a fan of white.... but I do love the black and white with the white, and I love the rooster.
Stay warm....
Hugs,

Lynne your table is so pretty! It looks cozy and relaxing.

Our neighbor across the subdivision (his family developed the subdiv.), cleaned all our streets with a skid loader. I am telling you, they are so good to keep our streets and driveways nice and our HOA fees amount to pennies. Anyway...J thinks we got more than a foot, judging from the massive snow piles along the side of our streets!:-) Lots of drifting, that is for sure.
Yep, there is snow in our forecast, as well. Perhaps it will be flurries.;-)

Lynne, the textures on your plates along with those wonderful chargers are such a delightful combination. I just want to reach through the computer and touch all of those textures. The rooster and his pedestal are beautiful, and the simple addition of the black in the napkins is perfect. Such a pretty setting. laurie

Hey Lynne, that's one of the prettiest roosters I've ever seen. He looks so important sitting on that pedestal in the midst of your gorgeous tablescape. He better mind his manners as those dishes and silverware are to die for gorgeous! Great table, Ma'am!!

This is wonderful! Love your black and white checks with the whites. We had a tease of springlike weather today--but by the weekend we'll be back in the depths of an artic blast.

Lynn, what a great looking table! I was oohing and ahhing over your flatware, and I can't believe those aren't pearl handled! I thought they were antiques! Target??? They are wonderful. Loved everything about this and how the texture of the white dishes and centerpiece makes it just so standout. Great job!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Lynne, your table is a perfect example of how a mostly monochromatic table can be SO elegant! I love the textures on your dishes, and the black and white napkins are wonderful! I just found some for myself and can't wait to try them in a tablescape.

Lynne-THOSE dishes are from Walmart???? Wow! I love them. They look like The Casa Fina my daughter and DIL2b have. You can never go wrong with white. Your table is casual elegance!!! Hope you are defrosted :) Let me know if you make the crab cakes. I think Mr. P (and you) would love them!
