Dining with Cloches

I've been doing a lot of thinking about my blog, but very little doing.  I want to ensure that I post something interesting and insightful and use my blog as a way to chronicle my everyday life (which by the way, is not very interesting or insightful which may be why I am having trouble).  Please continue to bear with me as I overcome my writer's block.   I've been working on my Wish List for 2011 and determining steps and timelines.  One thing that I have already had to concede is my kitchen buildout.  We are in desperate need of working on our driveway, which became glaringly obvious after all the snow and sludge so far this year that has turned our drive into a horror, we are going to have it hard-topped at the end of February.  That expense will mean that my kitchen buildout will need to be pushed back to late this year or into 2012.  As a result, I am moving forward with making the minor, cosmetic improvements to make my current kitchen livable and more functional.....I'm planning and planning right now, trying to keep unnecessary costs down.  Determining what will be 'throw away' money spent vs what can be spent and reused when we do the build-out. 

I have been playing around, resetting my tabletops with all the holiday items packed away.  Slowly but surely getting things back in order.  I've been working on cloches for my dining room table. 

Thanks for your visit and hope you are doing better than I am with making your home re-beautiful after Christmas.   I'm blaming it on my 'planning' for the year....that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  Cheers!

Hi Anita! Oh, no, meaningful content for our blogs? Oops, I'm afraid I fall very short on that one! :)
Sorry you'll have to wait until next year for your kitchen redo but maybe you'll come up with some great ideas that you haven't thought of yet! :)
I know the drive way to your lovely home is so important.
Now, I love your cloches and how you've dressed them! I hadn't thought about how pretty fruit would look in them til I saw yours.
Be a sweetie and I always love coming for a visit,
Shelia ;)

Hello Anita.

Your cloches look great! I have the plans, but have just not been able to implement many of them... It has been slow going.

Oh my, well of course you know that I am totally drooling over your cloches and the fabulous displays you've created in them. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

Anita, the centerpiece of cloches is an adorable idea. I'm afraid I don't even own one of these. That's on my list for the new year. ;-)
