Internet Problems

I am having internet provider problems...I don't know when they will be fixed. I promise to stop by and visit all of you when my internet is up and running again. I am hoping it will be fixed on Monday.
Welcome Home,

Roses are Red (and yellow)

My husband and son went out the day before Thanksgiving to pick up a few last minute things.

Lucky for me they decided to pick up some beautiful roses to add to the Thanksgiving table. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Do You?

When setting your table for the holidays, do you go all out? When I grew up, for every holiday dinner when we set the table we included salt cellars at each individual place setting.

Over the last few years, I have been collecting vintage crystal salt cellars and silver salt spoons. When ever we have a special dinner I include them at the place settings. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone! I will see you in a few days.
Welcome Home,
Penny
p.s. My internet connection has been having problems the last 4 days. I am way behind in my visits, but I will catch up after Thanksgiving...
P.P.S. If you have time, come see me at my newest Home Goods Post!

Welcome Home

Welcome home... The Comforts Of Home is a new blog for me. I've decided to separate my home blog from my Lavender Hill Studio blog. My home is so different from the mosaics and vintage lighting I make for Lavender Hill Studio. So I wanted blogs that would truly represent both.

On The Comforts of Home you will see my home decorating ideas, garden ideas, cooking and things that inspire me. On my Lavender Hill Studio blog, I will share my mosaics, both before and after, new projects other than mosaics that I am working on and new art ideas.

So what better way to launch my new blog than with something for the home that I can use while I cook and created by an artist that inspires me? I recently started collecting aprons. Kathy of Kathy's Cottage featured this apron on her blog a few weeks ago. I couldn't resist it.



Kathy always packages her wonderful creations so sweetly! I love the red tissue paper and red checked ribbon.


Isn't this the cutest apron you have ever seen? Look at the sweet black and white dotted ruffles!


Kathy also included this sweet vintage ice skate ornament with lavender ribbon and a couple of very cute gift tags. Thank you Kathy! You are an inspiration to me.

I hope you all add my new blog to your favorites, your blog rolls, google reader and blog follower....Remember, when you see me visit on your blog now I will be visiting from The Comforts Of Home.

Welcome Home,
Penny
