Thank you for hosting us Kathleen.
Along with cooking, I love to play with dishes!
My home is now located in a heavily wooded forest area, and let me tell you, it takes a leap of faith to do a white table scape beneath a Douglas Fir tree which is frequented by the many, many birds (and squirrels) who visit our property.
Knock on wood, nary a "catastrophe" this time! :)
I went with a "Beachy" theme ~ all my life I've lived within an hour or so of the Pacific Ocean and beaches are dear to my heart.
Sources for most everything are listed at the bottom of the post.
Ahem, Ms. Kathleen...
I didn't get "the memo"... may I use "Silver" as my second color? :)
Along with cooking and playing with dishes, one of my other passions is gardening...
so to go along with the color scheme I just had to sneak in a shot of the rose "Sally Holmes".
Later, at dusk:
Thank you for stopping by today.
