My new little plates and some blog name droppping


My little plates are up.  I may find more and add them around the picture.  I love it.  What do you think.  I also thought this table was too high for a coffee table but I am thinking it's okay, thoughts?  I got tired of my long cherry table. 
Also the "littles" were getting bumps from falling into it.
How did I hang the plates?  Thanks for everyone's suggestions.  I went with  http  Marcia @Vintage French Hen.  She suggested a glob of hot gue with a paper clip.  Hey, it worked.  Cheap and I had both on hand.  Check out her blog post today.  She is showcasing where she creates in a little milk house.  That milkhouse will soon be room for her son returning from his 3rd tour of duty in the Middle East.  Thank you to her son.Vintage French Hen
See that cute little pillow in the middle of the well loved couch?  My friend  Beverly @Flaming Toes.  We were swap partners in a Spring Swap and have become good friends.  You can't see it but there is a no. 10 on the pillow for my 4 children and 6 grandchildren.  She does some really cute sewing projects on her blog and is giving away the neatest ever tea towel.  She is also going on a road trip with her parents, hubby and two teenagers.  She'll swap post cards with you if you sign up.

Now, one more Blog name  Cindy @ Rick-Rack and Gingham is hosting a apron swap. 
Not the real thing but with paper.  One is a Mary E. style.  It could be a book or a banner.  She needs more to sign up.  Hint.....
Nan and
Brenda and ELizabeth.......we need you. 
Also stop over and read CIndy's blog today. 
A wonderful love story.

I hope you are all doing well this week-end.  Happy Fathers Day to all the wonderful Dads.  I am missing my Dad again this year.  ((((HUGS))))

Yay! You put pictures up! I was hoping you would. It looks fantastic. You're whole living room does. I think the table looks really nice. Not to tall at all. It all looks so comfortable and cozy. I like the pillows too! I'm a big fan of florals and against your light couch with the white table it looks like the photos I see in Country Living magazine. I love it!

What a warm and cozy room! I LOVE your wall color too! The link to the apron swap wouldn't work for me. :-(

Debby! Your table in front of the couch is perfect! I love your plates and the idea on hanging them. An idea right up my pocket book alley! Yes the tours are wonderful. I am not through with them either. Some of the spaces are quite intimidating when I craft such silly stuff. I think I had better stick to my small neighborhood. I will hop over to Cindy's to check our her swap. Thank you for letting me know. Enjoy your week ahead! Elizabeth
