  1. I love the Santa’s!!! Each setting was so festive and creative

  2. Your tables are always beautifully set and show such thought, Linda. I love how you use ordinary things to make treasures out of them. You are an inspiration to me!

  3. Linda, you are a master of creativity using color and texture! I always look forward to one of your tablescapes, you think outside of the box!

    1. You have given the ultimate compliment. Thank you.

  4. One constant that I see is color and creativity in all your table settings. Anyone that sits down for a meal at your table will be in for a good time.

    1. It would be great to have you sitting at the table again!

      1. That would be fun, wouldn’t it. 😀
