Tablescape for America's First Daughter

I love this tablescape.  It was so much fun to put together.  I also use it for July 4th celebration with our family. I also used it for last evening's Book Chick's book club meeting!  I even served vegetables in honor of Thomas Jefferson, with homemade corn bread, what else?

I purchased most of the items from Hobby Lobby and Michael's.  I had the buffalo red checked place mats from my Christmas stash. 

You will notice that I have the napkin holders on each plate but the napkins 
weren't completed for the this shot but you can see them further down.

I thought this wooden little girl made the table a hit since the book was about red headed 
Martha (Patsy) Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson's first daughter.

Here you will see the striped napkins that I made just for this book club event.  I think the table turned out so cute.  Notice the flag straws!  I love to do fun tablescapes, don't you?

Goodwill Find - My New Lamp

I traveled to South Georgia last weekend for a girls weekend.  It was a lot of fun, and a lot of shopping!  Are you really surprised?  Well you shouldn't be! You know that part of being a woman is sometimes "Retail Therapy". 

My find at Goodwill surprised me as well!  I bought a lamp for $5.59.  It was a clay/pottery lamp and blue in color.  It had a stripe around the bottom showing the under part of the pottery.  Anyway, nothing was required but a lamp shade and a new finial.  So off to Hobby Lobby I went.

Here is the final look of the lamp.  I was very pleased and thought it was a super buy!

Here is where I placed the lamp on my desk!  I think it gives a great presentation!

Happy hunting ladies!
