When our snow finally started to fall yesterday, this tablescape suddenly hit me. I’d been headed in a different tablescape direction entirely.
After talking about those delicious onion burgers yesterday, I was in a rustic, sort of western mood. HH’s t-shirt quilt’s reverse side is flannel, so I threw the quilt over the breakfast table and ended things there.
The morning had been rainy and cold with no sign of our expected big snow. (Not that I was checking the status every five minutes, or anything.)
I was about to give up on the snow, but by early afternoon, we had heavy, wet flakes of snow falling. Look what a difference an hour made.
We Southerners have to brag about our snow because we get it so rarely. This is early this morning – still dark and hazy. The sun will be out soon to begin the thaw. 🙁
I know, I’ve gotten off topic. Sorry – back to the tablescape.
I’d been upstairs in the project studio sewing while developing the rustic tablescape plan in my head. A stuck-at-home snow day is a perfect day for sewing. Rather than the rustic, fried burger on-my-mind tablescape, the sewing theme hit me.
I snatched a few things from the studio and headed downstairs. Remember these jumbo antique scissors from the window up there?
As the snow accumulated, I set the table – with hot tea and sewing on my mind.
Dishes in white accentuate the blue.
Place mats of needlework stand out better with unexpected bamboo beneath.
Pewter teapot rings gather napkins of handiwork.
Yes those are the owl eyes peeking at you above. I know. Owls have nothing to do with sewing. Or snow. But, aren’t they fun? 🙂
Tea mugs on snow flake plates fit the occasion.
The teapot and hot chocolate packets are ready on the side table.
HH doesn’t like hot tea. We enjoyed an afternoon hot chocolate treat yesterday ~ creating a moment while enjoying the scenery.
We need hot tea and hot chocolate breaks while we sew – especially on cold, snow-filled days.
Antique sewing machine drawers are useful for so many things! Needlework drapes everything, with colorful thread, too.
Upside-down water goblets make interesting candle holders.
A stroll around outside before hot chocolate or tea brought a new level of excitement. Forget sewing!
The horses were frisky, playing in their new surroundings of white.
The front porch had a much different view, too.
The blowing snow was covering things on the porch.
We don’t have snow often enough to remember the little things – like removing pillows and cushions.
Did you get snow yesterday? Does it inspire you to sew when stuck inside all day? Or, would you rather play in the snow? 🙂
