Mary Carol Garrity is one of my favorites....


How about some classic molding in your dining room with these blue walls? I love all the textures she has added in the room and the pleated seatcovers.

Spring weather makes me want to take a tray full of goodies and dine outside..how about you? Notice the rustic vine tray with the more formal dinnerware, a great combination--rustic & elegant!
Polish off your silver trays and let them sparkle in the warm sun. Pick up a single stem rose---just because!

A perfect way to dress the table for a springtime luncheon. Chocolate, cream and lime green...what a fabulous combination. Notice the bamboo chairs, they are making a comeback in decorating. I am seeing lots of bamboo trays, end tables, mirrors in the decorating world.

Grab your grandmothers crystal cake plate and serve up this luscious lemon dessert. Try one of the lemon recipes from my earlier posts..you won't be disappointed!
