Welcome to my LOVE tablescape and to Tablescape Thursday! February is the month of Love; it is the month I was married in. At our wedding reception, we decorated in true Valentine colors of red and white. The highlight of our wedding reception were the white painted manzanita trees with white lights and red hearts.
My One Year Blogging Anniversary -- the date I made my first post -- is tomorrow! I have put together 48 Tablescapes in this past year! I have also enjoyed looking at all of YOUR tablescapes -- you have inspired me! Make sure you drop by tomorrow -- I will be having a great giveaway to celebrate my First Blogging Anniversary!
As you view my "Love is in the Air" Tablescape, I want to share with you a few random things that I am thinking about that I LOVE.
I love cats, but I am afraid of dogs. Well, I do like Lucy, my nephew Mack's dog. Any cat that shows up at my doorstep will get fed. I love our own Wolfay and MoMo.
My individual placesetting.
I love decorating with candy. It is so bright, fun, and happy.
I made this candy skewer centerpiece over a week ago and it is still intact -- sometimes you can train your family!
I love words and I love reading, especially children's and young adult literature. Someday I would like to compete in the Senior Spelling Bee held in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I did compete in spelling bees when I was younger; I will always remember how to spell the word eczema -- the word I missed. My 10-year old daughter, Talley, just competed at her school spelling bee; she won for the 4th grade; I liked helping her study.

I love piano music. I did take lessons but was not a very good piano player -- it might have had something to do with the amount I practiced. I love hearing my children play the piano, especially at Christmas and when they play church hymns or their recital pieces. I am so happy to be able to provide them with piano lessons. I love my children; I love how they broaden my horizons and keep life sooo interesting.
Would you like some jam?
I love backrubs; my husband usually gives me one every night! I love my husband! We will celebrate our 23rd Anniversary later this month. I will use the old cliche that it "just seemed like yesterday!"
A view of the glasses.
I love blogging and I love the people who blog. Is there a nicer, more supportive group of people? I think not! Tomorrow is the One Year Anniversary of my first post. Stop by for a great giveaway!
