Happy New Year! Who know what’s in store for us now!!!

Note: Trying something new with the linking. Let me know your thoughts.

Laurie Ritchey said...

That was a great review of your amazing tablescapes. Each and every one was so special, and it was so much fun to see them all at once. I never could link up yesterday, and still can't today. Is something wrong with Mr. Linky? laurie

Cindy Adkins said...

Thank you for hosting Seasonal Sundays. All of your tablescapes are simply gorgeous! I enjoy looking at them very much. Happy New Year!

Cindy Adkins said...

I'm not sure if it's a problem with the linky or my computer, but I don't see a place to link up and also I'm only seeing 5 blog links, but they're repeated many, many times down the page. Humm...I'll check back later to see if it's working. Wanted to let you know, since you mentioned you're trying something new.

Ann Krucek said...

Love to look back at all your beautiful tables!! Wonderful review! My favorites are your Rise n Shine post and your Sunny Valentines, maybe because I am looking forward to what's coming up in the new year!

Vintage Street Designs said...

WOW...what a beautiful blog and soooo many great ideas for table settings! Happily following along with you now! ~ Judy

Carol said...

This was such a special post, showcasing some of your beautiful tablescapes! I'm glad I don't have to pick a top one -- I'd be sunk!

Happy New Year!

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...

What a fun look back at the loveliness of the past year. You really have the touch!!
I like the new linky....I've used it elsewhere and it works great....just a bit different.
I hope you don't mind my sharing this...but as much as I love your blog and what you's very hard to read. It took me forever to find the link to comment...the green just does not show up on the red. The easiest to read blogs have a light background and dark fonts...not the other way around...or in this case dark on dark. I feel so badly for saying this...I do hope you understand.
Wishing you a blessed New Year!
