Alphabe-Thursday at Jenny Matlock where today's letter is "Y" - YOU are just going to have to indulge me as I waffle a little bit on this week's letter.  Stretching it a bit, but YOU are sure to understand that YOU are what makes The Little Round Table chug along.

  20. Happy Birthday to Rebecca....Your table setting is absolutely beautiful. I was going to ask you where you got the beautiful tablecloths in your header and then was pleasantly surprised that you were giving information on tablecloths. Your dishes and everything are lovely. I wouldn't even want to have anything on my plates...or eat...I would simply love to sit there and admire the beauty on the table.
    Well done...lovely.
