I wanted something new for the dining room table. Something different. I have grown weary of a bowl of potpourri or cachepot of fresh flowers of the week. So, I took a chance and bought something very different. And here it is.
I like it. The dining room table seats eight and the size of this is proportionate to the table. I did not know exactly what I wanted to place in it, so I found these candles that are battery operated. I like this look but I will experiment with some different things before I finally settle on what I think will work best.
And of course you see Martha's new book, Martha's American Food, which was just released today. I called my local Books-A-Million store yesterday and had them hold their one and only copy at the front counter with my name until I could get there to pick it up today. She will be visiting the Costco in Leesburg, VA this Saturday from Noon - 2:00 PM. Guess who will be there, book in hand to meet the venerable Mrs. Stewart. You guessed it. Me! I'm sure with probably thousands of other people. But it will be a fun event and I'm looking forward to it.
