Features from Last Week’s Party


My Picks….

Amy’s entry looked terrific before she got inspired by a visit to her mother-in-laws home in Germany.
What a great example of taking something and making it extraordinary.

I love the look of beautifully hemmed napkins.
To save money and have them match my tablecloth I’ve made my own,
but they did not have perfect corners like Kim’s.  I can’t wait to try my hand at them again using Kim’s tutorial.
