So........ here's to a new week. Yes, most of the issues from last week will carry into this one. Yes, this week will bring issues of it's own. Still, it's a new opportunity and I intend to make the most of it.
Enough chatter - let's get going. Look out Monday - here I come! : )

This delightful little leprechaun welcomes you to our table, but don't try to steal his gold!
I started with a runner of greens, browns, and yellow. Rattan chargers form the base for each place setting. I put my light green plates on the side places and the yellow plates at both ends. Each place has a white bowl on top.
Dark green napkins are rolled up and placed in a white napkin ring. A tiny leprechaun hat sits right on top.
This is the same centerpiece I used for St. David's Day. I just replaced the Wales flag with this little guy. I think it looks great for both occasions.
Well, that's all for today. Time to start thinking about Easter. It's just a hop away!!

One of our goals for 2010 was to clean and organize our garage. It wasn't "hoarding" terrible, but it had gotten pretty junky. The weather has been so cold and rainy that today was really our first time to get out there. Unfortunately, we live directly behind a field and across the street from a golf course, so a mouse (or maybe 2) had taken up residence in the garage - uninvited I must say!! YUCK! What a mess! It sure felt good to get all that mess cleaned up.
All my holiday decorations are neatly stored in plastic tubs. All of Frank's stuff is stored in the attic. The golf clubs and accoutrement are stored in their rack. Packing paper and bubble wrap is in the attic. We made major progress!!
Dr. Dave was even lucky enough to get his truck in - at least for a few minutes! There's still too much stuff along the sides for us to get both of our vehicles in at the same time. Guess that project will have to wait for another day.

I wanted a casual feel to the table, so I chose to not use a tablecloth. Instead, I started with vintage placemats. Wish I could tell you where they came from, but I don't remember! DH thought they came from my family and I thought they came from his! Wherever they came from, I love them and think they are perfect for this table.
Woven charger is from Walmart. It's the same one I use all the time. Yellow plate is dinner plate and white is for salad. There's nothing fancy about the dishes, flatware, or glassware - just my everyday stuff. I just like how all the pieces came together.
Daffodils are the national flower of Wales. Unfortunately, ours aren't up yet so I had to settle for the "long lasting" variety! Ha Ha! I just "planted" them in a glass trifle filled with rocks and stuck the Welsh flag right inside. Can't you just see this same scene in a beautiful garden?
I scattered Welsh books all around the table, including 2 antique books under the flowers.
Hope you enjoyed your special table, Love! I LOVE YOU!!
