I love Calvin Klein’s Obsession. I’ve been wearing it for most of my adult life and when I venture out of the house (which isn’t that often), there isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t get a compliment on it. I could (and have) literally bathe in it. I’ve been known to spray the light bulbs with it so that the warmth of the light bulb spreads the scent all over the bedroom.
This is how I incorporate my ‘signature’ scent into my hand cream & keep it with me all the time.
I guess I’m feeling a little bit of cabin fever. With so much white outside, I wanted a little color inside. I’ve had this set of red glass dinnerware since 1997. I lost one of the plates along the way, so I decided to do a tablescape for 3.
A set of drinking glasses inspired this tablescape. I’ve been wanting to do this tablescape for quite a while now. I love the combination of black & white. It always looks crisp to me. It can stand alone, and any color will go with it. I hope you enjoy this week’s Black & White Winter Tablescape.
Aunt Millie was our favorite Aunt. She was a delightful person with a great sense of humor. She had a way of making you feel at home, always. I can remember Aunt Millie & Mama talking on the phone for hours, and she could make my Mama laugh like no other. When she was called home, her lovely daughters gave some of her things to my sister & me. I got her flatware & my sister got her china. I can’t tell you how excited I was when my sister asked me if I’d like to do a tablescape with Aunt Millie’s china. The flatware & china were reunited. This tablescape brings back so many Memories of our Aunt Millie.
On our last visit to the thrift shop, we found a wooden tea light bridge. I liked the shape of it, but brown wood doesn’t go with my home. What did I do? Painted it, naturally. 😉 This is the Tea Light Bridge now.
I’ve finally finished up my Christmas ornament re-organizing. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. The ornaments are kept in our barn (which is actually a glorified, large, 2 story shed). Although the things that are stored in there stay dry, they are subject to heat & cold. The usual labels on the boxes don’t hold up well. They’ve buckled & faded over the years. This year, it will be different.
