Farmhouse Blue Table

Right after lunch I felt I needed a new
look, on the table, that is. It's the
 the easiest way to freshen things up
around here. Larry just rolls his eyes.
I explained that you wouldn't wear
 the same outfit every day for a week.
That example didn't seen to resonate
with him. I got started right after I cleared
the lunch dishes. I wanted a farmhouse-style
look this time so I scrambled a few things 
together. The breakfast table got it's new 
'outfit' and I got my need for a simple 
change in minutes. Feeling better already.
For the table runner I used 2 new 
 kitchen towels with a grain sack look.
My rustic horseshoe handled tray 
would work for the center.
I gathered a couple of plants, the pothos
and a still blooming orchid, and a few 
pieces of blue and white pottery.
All set. I can now go on with my day.
