Dining Room Fixed Up

After the failed attempt at reupholstering the wing chair I needed a pick-me-up so Mom helped me redo the dining room table. I bought this adorable metal teacup rack in Cape Cod last summer and I love it. I put some teacups on it and a teapot set Mom gave me. Then I put the not-to-eat cupcakes on a footed glass dish and walah! The dining room looks so nice and Spring-like, Easter-like.

I was thinking about hanging up some hearts for Valentine's and found some pink heart paper doilies. I put 3 together and stitched them down the middle. Then I pulled them apart. I left a long thread on them when I sewed them and hung them up from a grapevine I have hanging up between the dining room and the kitchen. (good example of a run-on sentence)


  1. The paper doillies are a huge hit with me...I can't wait to try that. I was thinking of asking for a tutorial but even I can handle this! Your table is beautiful...what is the china pattern...I absolutely love it...from one bird watcher to another. I couldn't get that link to work but I think my computer is just slow. That will be fun to follow.

  2. Oh.. I'm going to click on that backyard bird count too! So glad you have the button on your sidebar!
    And your china is gorgeous. I just love how you have it displayed.

  3. It's not really a china set. I bought these pretty bird teacups several years ago at an antique shop.

  4. Oh, I love the tea stand! The cutie in the Meet Me In The Garden clothes is so adorable. ALMOST makes me want to have another baby. lol!


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
