Party Monday


We all love to entertain in our 'cottages'. Our cottage styles really shine when we combine favorite recipes or take-out with cherished dinnerware, beverageware, serving pieces, silverware, linens, placemats, and beloved collections to create wonderful seasonal tablescapes in a comfy nook for one, on an intimate table for two, for a small get-together, or for a grand gathering. Themes are as boundless as our imaginations. Each table a cottage one-of-a-kind.
This week long Blog Party is open to everyone.

a little bit about Carmen and her art~
Serendipity a "pleasant surprise"
Serendipity means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; a fortunate mistake. Specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it. After many years in the corporate world, a cancer diagnosis brought new challenges but also an opportunity to do what I loved and that was creating art that would heal and inspire.
