A Simple Table

I'm not sure why, but for me, decorating in January is the hardest to do.  I love the warm colors of the holidays and it always looks a bit bare afterwards.  So, I decided to change up my cabinet in the family/kitchen area.  I usually but out extra dishes but I decided to decorate with some Tuscan pottery and pictures of the family.
 I lightened up the table too; a simple runner with a woven vase and flowers.  It will be a lot easier at dinnertime.
 I was trying to work with what I already had on hand without buying anything new.
We have so much going on right now.  We are in the process of getting granite for the kitchen.  I never realized how many decisions were involved...sinks, facets, dishwashers.  Also, I'm planning for Ethan's birthday party and making the centerpieces for my mother-in-laws Relay For Life Event.  Busy, but very grateful and happy to do it.  Have a great week!
