I just love all the end of year reviews, and all your tables are worth a second or third look-see! I always love your tables but my favorites were the bright yellow and white Easter breakfast and the orange ikat in October with the mercury glass owl!

Diane said...

What fun to see your tables together like this. Each one was a definite masterpiece!! I had to smile over the extra spooky Halloween one - I thought it was fantastic, when you posted it. Happy, happy new year - I hope it is wonderful for you and your family!!

I think we are starting this year again with an arctic blast! There are so many great ideas here and I will be back to visit often for inspiration! Your hubby's birthday table reminds me of Kathleen's table tonight with the black and white cloth and dishes. You inspire us all! Happy New Year to you and your family! Linda
