Spectator Spectacular

Ever since I opened the store, I've used black and white

as a color template for some sort of display.

It just seems to be season less and neutral.

I love these seafood forks I just got in - not for seafood,

but rather to serve appetizers, olives and other "bits" on platters.

This cookie jar would make a great

business card holder

for your desk.
Also, see the napkin ring at the bottom left of the picture?

These are new and are adorable kitties!

A black and white fabric lined basket filled with flowers.

Even your day to day correspondence can add a flair

with these black and white pens.

This wine rack seemed open and empty so

I filled it with small black & white gift bags.

And miniature teapot place card holders from Crane.

I added a few serving pieces in basket weave,

which would make great "go to" pieces for your next buffet.

and hope you will visit them too!

Sunny Yellow

As I continue to transform the shop over from Christmas to spring, I turn to an old faithful transition, citrus. I think it is the sunny yellows that perk us up in dull drums of winter time.
Along with the fact that citrus (fresh) is in season.

These lemon napkin rings would perk up any table!

I really like the white with yellow for a clean, crisp color palette.

Lemon towels finish off the new display!

Winter Blues

Between the blue birds outside my window and the blue decor inside the store, I definitely feel the winter blues lately.

I'm inspired by the blue and white dishes with oranges on these new Mary Lake Thompson towels to create a blue & white with orange table display.

I think the shot of orange perks up this table.

Just got in a set of blue and white plates and dipping saucers.

These vintage frog placecard holders are adorable!

I'm also loving the yellow cocktail napkins.

But the real show stopper is the towels.

I hope you'll stop by the store for a visit soon!

I'm linking to the following parties:

Welcome 2011!

Well, it's been awhile since I've done any blogging and I miss it dearly :)
Between the store and working full time, I just got out of the habit of my posts. I have resolved that blogging is a good habit to keep, as well as exercising and eating right, it keeps me "on track" with what's good for me, my store, and my very disorganized life.

So my resolution (one of many) is to post more often, comment on your lovely blogs more and generally try to stay on track :) Here's hoping!
