A few days ago, the blogging community received word that our friend Pat of Back Porch Musings had passed away after experiencing many health complications.
Pat was a lovely and gracious lady who had a real eye for putting stuff together. We used to joke about having "old lady" taste (ie a more traditional style), but she was well-known and her style was well-received by so many of us. (She could also have been a brand ambassador for Chico's, but that's another story for another day.)
So in the midst of moving the kitchen/sunroom around (which will take another week to finish, I am sure. We are incorporating an old tobacco cart because DL insists and oh., lawd.) I decided to put together a little place setting for Pat.
Green plate from Kohl's about 10 years ago, light brown napkin from a yard sale, Dollar Tree acorns and a white pear from HomeGoods (yesterday--$3.95).
Same setting with a "galvanized" pumpkin, which I will be giving a tutorial on, later this week.
Wherever you are Pat, I know you have a limitless room full of stuff with which to create a few celestial tablescapes.
