TJ Maxx in Rockland is the source for most of my shopping in Maine, but recent computer problems took me to Portland and the Apple store, which just happens to be in the Maine Mall. Whoa, an opportunity for retail therapy! After buying a couple of new pairs of shoes at Macy’s I drifted toward Pottery Barn to see what was new.
Of course, the displays were heavy with decor for Halloween and fall, and while it was fun to look, I came away with just one item, a burlap table runner, a purchase influenced, I think, by some of my tablescaping blog friends!
The runner immediately went on the dining table, and it needed some color. Out to the garden to clip a few of those brave and outspoken dahlias which, after trying several containers, ended up in these wonderful antique beer bottles. How many beers could you drink in something that size?
so these recently acquired old thumbprint glasses in nearly the same color were a perfect addition. I bought these thinking they would look good in a daughter’s new kitchen, but I like them so much she may never get them!
Without too much ado, the table is once again ready for friends to gather for an evening at home. Now if Mary or Kathleen or Alycia or Marigene or Marlis or Cherry Kay or Jacquelin or Lynne or any of you would just show up to add your special touches, all would be perfect!
What is it that makes your heart sing?
