TABLESCAPE THURSDAY



I love this great Easter Platter and little Bunny candle holders that I found the other day when I went into the Williams- Sonoma store to look around...




These cute Spring Bunny Plates are durable and features a different bunny portrait and pastel-colored border ...




They are just the cutest...


Love the Pink one...


The yellow border is just perfect for Spring...

The National Cornbread Festival,” complete with a National Cornbread Cook-off, carnival, food court, music, plus arts and crafts is held on the last weekend of April, the event attracts 45,000 to 60,000 visitors, I would love to see pictures and hear about that from someone ....Do you have a favorite restaurant , your child's B-Day party...The list goes on if it happens in your town and you like to talk about it ...You can bet that someone here in blog land wants to hear about it...Now I would also like your help to name the new Meme...I am thinking maybe Blogland or Blogville...Or do you have something in mind...Please give me your thoughts..also I would like to know if this is a Meme that you would like to see and maybe join in once in awhile...

I also have had some great suggestions for a name...
CC said...
I like the idea of the new meme..how about.."In My Home Town"....I like that name and it would so suit every ones photos...
The Happy Homemaker said...
ooooh,fun! How about Our Town...or I like In My Hometown, like CC suggested
Rhondi said...
Hi JulieI think that is a great idea. I don't have any suggestion for a name though...
Marla said...
Julie, I am not sure what a MEME is? Is that crazy I don't know? But I like the name Our Town a lot.
Mimi said...
I think the title should be something like your hometown or hometown happenings, if it is going to be something about your place of residency, maybe virtual dept of tourism!!!!I don't know, I will be thinking all day!!!
Doris Sturm said...
Dear Julie,I will be happy to participate in your Meme, entitled "I love where I live, and I have already something in mind, a post I did earlier (like maybe a year ago, about all the Murial's in my town of Lakeland, GA)...the Cherokee Indian Powwow post can be called "I love where I live close to?" ;-) I don't even know how close it is, it's probably a 4 hour ride from here, but I'll know more once I return. There are lots of nice placed in my local town, for instance, Bank's Lake that was once famous for shooting a film with Burt Reynolds called "Gator" and the DVDs of the movie are still being sold at the Outpost there...I'll be happy to help in any way I can, but I will need guidance because I normally don't participate in memes. Just let me know when you want to start and what I have to do.Have a great weekend,Doris ;-)(and Gizzy says hello to Miss Lucy)

I think your hometown idea is great - if I think of a clever name, I'll send it your way.

Sarah said...
Julie, Love the idea of your new meme. I'll give this some thought and if a name comes to mind I'll pass it along. Charleston is a favorite place to visit for me!
Kathy said...
Your hometown idea for blog posts sound like fun. I would enjoy reading about special things in other hometowns! I love your garden path photo. Will that be your button?


Sherry from Alabama said...
Your blog party sounds like fun. I'll be checking back for more info.
