I used to collect dishes and I loved to set tables. I have stopped buying dishes because I have run out of storage space.
Now that tablesetting has been discovered by the rest of the world, my interest has died off. I was really turned off by seeing so many tablescapes in blogland that were so over the top and never intended to be used--like the day I saw a stack of 12 different plates at each setting-- can you get any more outrageous!
Seeing certain bloggers trying to profit from others tablesetting talents also turned me off. It has been a few months since I set a creative table.
Right now I am not even interested in setting a Halloween table. These are pics from previous years:
I think this table was my favorite...
This one is very similar. I used a different table runner, added some pumpkins and cookies.
This one uses the same purple tablecloth, but everything else is different.
These skulls are the same ones I showed you yesterday. After I used them on this table, I spray painted them silver for the following year.
Most of you know that quilting is my favorite winter hobby. I make a lot of table runners. You may have noticed all the different runners I have for Halloween. I made them all.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the way I used to celebrate Halloween. This year I plan to do nothing--boring, but much less work! :)
