~ This weekend’s themed link ~


When Flea Market Trixie first aired these photos, I nearly passed out.

 But it wasn’t because I was in a decorating contest with her and I feared losing.

It was all about those little white cookies! Ok, I’m only kidding a little. But this picture made me REALLY want those cookies.

Oh my good gosh. And then this came up. My garden doesn’t look this incredible, never mind my cupcakes! Beauty like this really takes this tablescape to the next level.

And these lovely images had me positively DROOLING for that pink lemonade. See the frostiness misting the glasses? And she brought out MORE cookies.

And details. The smallest of details were enough. The gentle mix and layering of plates, pattern and equal intensity of colours and she called it done.

It was the gorgeous simplicity of it all that won me over. A lovely garden lemonade party sparkling with beautiful summer colour, including what’s being served.

But know what I love about this little tablescape area the most?

Normal everyday things were being used.  Yet the way this is staged, it doesn’t look common at all, does it?

This is art. Plain and simple.

And what about my tablescape submission in the contest.. Was it weird? Different? Rusty maybe even?!? Well…

 They don’t call this place Funky Junk for nothin’. 🙂

Do you like my table? Think I’m kidding, don’t you?

I’m going to link up my own tablescape to share a very different twist on ‘fine dining.’ 🙂

I can’t wait to see what tablescapes you’re bringing this weekend in the 3rd themed linkup!

The hottest thing in home fragrance visits us today! What is it, can you guess?

Candles you say?

Nope! It’s much safer and cleaner than that.

It’s Scentsy!

 3. This party is geared for DIY type projects we can all attempt to make ourselves. Items for sale may be linked up IF your entry is posted on your blog and in tutorial style.

4. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and within 1 month old. The 3rd weekly themed link may have older posts and not brand new to SNS.

  1. I get to link something! I get to link something! I’m way excited. I need a life….

    And would dried milk and cheerios, scattered plasticware and and random little piles of sugar count for a tablescape? Nah, didn’t think so.

  2. Ok, those cupcakes look awesome! They’re so pretty, I don’t think I could eat them. I”m lovin’ your spin on things. Old ‘n rusty! Reminds me of American Pickers stuff. Do you watch that show?

  3. Neat table setting! I wish I would think more about setting a fun table. We always use nice plates but it would be fun to jazz things up a bit!

    Well since I don’t have a table scape I am linking in the decorating catagory for my decorating non mistake-

    bee blessed

  4. I found your blog through another that I read. I’m your newest follower and have linked up to your hop. I have just got to say the links in this hop are some of the best I’ve ever seen and I know that I’m going to find more blogs to follow after leaving this comment. I hope that you stop by my blog hop, “Fresh Clean and Pure” going on now and I know from the theme of your blog that you’ve got some great inspirations for others. Thanks and have a great weekend.
