I came home and Mr. Sweetladyelaine and I decided to buy a house we had seen .......
A very nice house. We were excited! Anyway long story short...it had problems with MOLD!
So we decided not to buy it! We were upset but we decided it was better to be sure about what we were buying than get stuck with a lot of problems. Especially since we are not from Texas or know much about the ins and outs of houses there.
The next morning at 7am I was looking at houses and the one I loved, loved, was back on the market. I hurried and called Mr. Sweetladyelaine and he in turn called our agent and abracadabra.......a house is bought!
We are just waiting for closing.......
Is this a God intervention????? ABSOLUTELY!!!!
So you can see this challenge from Kathleen is not the only challenge I have had this week! In fact I started to set this table two weeks ago. I was afraid I wouldn't have time to set a table. I had tried silver & white and just couldn't pull it off so when I found the red & white material I used for the tablecloth, it was a no brainer! So I guess that is my inspiration......a red & white tablecloth. I bought it at our church rummage sale for .50 cents.
I have other white dishes to use but liked these better.
They are my favorite!
And lately I am into white.....
If I buy anything new, I paint it white!
The dinner plate is by Gibson and
the salad plate is Ridges,
by Living Quarters.
I seem to love Ridges! I use them all the time.
It is all offset with the red charger!
A rim shot................
The heart shaped bowl was bought at Michael's sometime ago.
For my centerpiece I found this fabulous white at tray
a consignment shop for $10.00.
I thought it was a little pricey but loved the detail.
Found this little beauty at Savers.
My little salt & pepper shakers are another Savers buy.
These white candlesticks I bought from my shop. They are Mikasa.
A very simple table to participate in Kathleen's all white challenge.
It certainly was a challenge and I enjoyed setting my table. Now, I can't wait to see your tables. I am coming to look......
