“Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established”
If you’ve been a reader of Everyday Living for any length of time, you will know who Patti is. She is a precious friend of many years, and although distance separates us, we still see each other on occasion. The last trip I made to Raleigh encompassed everything from good food and conversation to shopping to a two day tablescaping marathon! Patti is a collector of the loveliest of table ware…her collection of china, sterling, crystal, and linens is by far the most extensive and gorgeous that I have personally seen, as she has traveled the world with her husband adding to her collection! You can only imagine that this makes tablescaping extraordinarily fun at her house! You have seen six of the tablescapes from her home so far, and today makes lucky number seven! I think that it is time for another visit to North Carolina to catch up, eat, shop, and tablescape with Patti!
We decided to set the table for a light cheese and fruit course! Europeans generally serve the cheese course before dessert…but, we Americans often enjoy cheese as an appetizer. Who says you have to follow the rules? I say eat your cheese whenever you wish!
Thank you, my friends, for all your comments and the love that you so generously share with us!
