Secrets Revealed

For me, nothing is a greater gift than being invited to someone’s home for dinner.  It is a treat not only because of the companionship and yummy food but because the table always tells me something about the host.

This one is no exception starting with the table linens, all hand stitched by a loved German grandmother, that communicate a fondness for tradition and family heirlooms.

Next time you go to dinner at a friend’s home, pay attention to the details and see what you learn that may be new. There might be a surprise in store.

  1. I think you are so right. I had dinner at a friend’s house recently and wished I had asked to make photos. It was a lovely table.
    I agree with Pam your friend’s table reminds me of your artistic flair.
