From all those messes we’ve been making around here.  We pulled out the boiler, and emptied the furnace room downstairs. See: 



So to come to the supper table to our own homespun oasis is nice.  I was going to set the chicken and biscuit hotdish on the table there, too, in all it’s deepdish stoneware glory and take a picture.  But the men were terribly hungry and could not wait for the biscuits on top to be golden brown. 


        Yes, the flowers are from the garden.  The placemats are a freebie from sorting clothes to send to CAM.  The napkins and the wooden rings are part of my ongoing collection.  Oh, the table cloth was a free find as well.  Having a pretty table doesn’t have to be a special occasion.  Anytime the family is together is special enough to celebrate with nice things.



  1. It looks very nice, I wish I could get my mallow to grow! How long does it take to sprout?

  2. Arla, just catching up on all your stuff... I never knew that grandpa... Makes me jealous... And I love your cozy house this fall. Miss talking to you. Shilah
