It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

From My Table To Yours...

When my decorating ADHD kicked in (again!), I wanted to play dress up set up a new tablescape.  I was bored with my own table and my own dishes, so I called my friend and neighbor, Karen
Even though she was in the middle of eighty-seven projects of her own, she responded "Come on over!" (Although, I may have heard slight eye rolling)
We started with an already purdy tablescape...


 I started pulling goodies out of her buffet before she could say "Get the %^&$ out of my house!"










I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I happened to see some raunchy paper napkins in her drawers. 


(For a lookiloo at the rest of Karen's house, click here.)

  6. You're not the only one who has dragged their neighbor into this tablescaping thing! The table turned out beautiful. I love the soft green colors but let's face it, paper plates would look good in that dining room. I envy that ceiling so much!
