~ vintage table book ~

Hello, and HapPy Wednesday to my sweet bloggy friends,
Can you believe it's now well into January !! It's amazing where the time goes .. I sure hope you are all having fun, and getting lots of things done since the holidays are well behind us .. I wanted to share another wonderful "must have" book I just got .. I just can't seem to put this down either .. LoVe sharing with you fun, eye candy .. There is truly something for everybodys' taste .. Soo many refreshing ideas .. We all have these things around our homes already, it's just putting a tablescape together .. I myself LoVe the "mix and match" look, nothing PeRfEct, no rules, just put together what we LoVe .. Always makes me smile ~
This book is put out by the editors of Romantic Homes, and it is chuck full of beautiful ideas, it shares ideas on creating unforgettable table settings by mixing heirlooms unique treasures, and unexpected accents . Soo fun, and believe me, you will want to play house, and change things around, once you put this down . I've really enjoyed every page of this book, and it's soo fun because three friends of mine are featured in this book .. How exciting is that ?! makes it EvEn more fun ..
You know, I've always been the type of girly, that truly enjoys putting pretty fine, limoge , and other pieces of china, mixed with old vintage pieces of unmatched dishes, on a pretty, old, gently used harvest table, or a chippy painted cottage white table, nothing eVeR PeRfEcT here .. I want everyone to feel at home, and, not thinking you have to be so stuffy .. Ooohh and did I tell you making pretty tables makes the food taste so much more YummerS !! Truly it does, and serving food on pretty dishes, EvEn makes soup and salad taste better .. hahaha ..
Well girlies, always enjoy sharing with each of you, you all truly inspire me in soo many ways .. it's soo fun visiting you all .. stay well, have fun, and get out to get your books .. you will LoVe this ..
Take care, and have a happy, joyful, PiNk week ~
Big Vintage hugs
