Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Tablescape Thursday!!!


Oh how I love Thursdays!!! It is tablescape day!!! I love playing with my dishes!!! I have always

been a dishaholic and this day has given me one more reason to feed my addiction…YEAH!!!

Today’s table is for my daughter. She is having a few friends over for lunch and swimming so I

thought this would be a perfect opportunity to do a post with my plastic dishes. I couldn’t post

everything…the Texas heat prohibited some things from being displayed until  the last minute.

We found these dishes several weeks ago at Target. I had to have them…because they are

orange…of course;)!!! I love the pattern!!! Too cute!!! Did I say I love ORANGE:)?!!! I found the

cute flavored water on another blog and of course had to copy…it was just to cute to pass up!!!

Everything else is just stuff I have had for awhile. The topiary is usually in another spot but was

crying out to be used today…so I obliged!!!

I hope you enjoy and I hope my daughter and her friends enjoy as well!!!

Sunday Blessings!!!

Men spend their lives in anticipations,—in determining to be vastly happy at some period when

they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other—it is our own. Past

opportunities are gone, future have not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay

in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured

by age.

Charles Caleb Colson

Have a wonderful Sunday and God bless you all!!!

Lots of Love!!!
