5th Monday Party

This weeks party should be a fun one. Let's all show off our vintage inspired homes. Do you live a Sears House? Does your kitchen still sport the original cast iron sink and metal cabinets of the 30's-40's?
is that 1950 linoleum hiding under your wall to wall carpet? Do mix vintage items in your decor? Does your 60's Ranch facade hide your Primitive or country side? Does your thoroughly modern condo recall a quaint English cottage?  Join the party, show us your inspiration.

Hello Out There

OMG I thought I was gonna have to start writing a newsletter type mailer to you all.
My Comp tried to receive  an automatic update last Wednesday and something went caflewy!
I tried to open my laptop and it wouldn't load anything. Microsoft tried to do repair and it wouldn't go thru.....#!!$%#@.....the little window thingy said to send it to Windows and they'd get back to me.
Well, finally here I am, hours overdue to post our weekly party. but it seems no one noticed?
I know, I know, the last few weeks have been erratic at best, but everyone seems at least healthier..for now...and my fall is becoming just a painful memory....until that voodoo doll someone is toyin with gets it's hip and thigh twisted a little and reminds me....ergggg...
I'm ready for a Springtime party. 

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.

So please forgive me if the parties are not quite regular these few days ahead, but you all have fun and keep each other in stitches!
