The tropical breezes give the air a sultry feeling as you sit down to my dinner table this week. I set the table last Friday morning as I was leaving town for the week. But as I am in Washington DC the temps are reminiscent of a visit to the tropics. Hot with lots of moisture. I am as my niece Briana calls me currently Aunt Fluffy. Those of you who have some natural curl understand this I am sure.
I pulled everything from around the house except the salad and dinner plates. You can never tell when you will find inspiration for a new tablescape. I happened down the seasonal aisle at Walgreen’s last Thursday evening and saw the melamine palm tree plates. They were a steal – marked 2 for $3.00. But it got better, when I checked out they were on sale for $1.34 a piece. So $16.08 for the lot.
Note to self: always remember to check for memory card in camera before taking pictures. I though I had some nice blue hour shots from earlier in the evening, but no SD card, no pictures. Good thing I checked before packing the camera.
May the sound of the ocean and the breeze through the palm trees take you to a restful spot.
I love these chargers so much I am wondering how another set would look painted in a dark tone.
Thanks for joining me at my table.
