Oh, how deliciously lovely!!! =) I would label you two each to be a "Hostess with the Mostess".

Hospitality is definitely a gift in your family, both in beauty and in heart! I love the sun shining on the gorgeous outdoor table setting.

Blessings to the both of you lovely creative ladies~

I would love to hear more about your special time with your grandmother. I know--that defeats the purpose of the post with minimal text! Looks like a sacred time of wisdom shared between generations....

Dearest Monica,

Thank you for highlighting this special time we had together. So glad it provided a quiet retreat for you. It meant a great deal to me too. I wish Carrie & Katie could have been here too, but then it wouldn't have been as quiet!!

(Sorry I had my red mug on our dinner table. I didn't realize you were taking that picture!)

Love you, Grandma

Oh, this made me nostalgic - the Old Country Roses was my Grandma's china too. She's gone to heaven but I have her china - sniff... Beautiful, such a blessing for you both.

Monica,
You certainly have wonderful examples!
Your grandmother and I have the same china and everyday dishes!!
