You are absolutely correct. The napkins, napkin rings, and place mats set off the white of your dishes in a very nice way,
Those peanut clusters look scrumptious.

Beverly said...

Ooh, I love boxes full of pretty things. You're a lucky lady.

And, I heading over right now for some candy and coffee. Candy is a breakfast food, isn't it?! ;-)

Stacey said...

BJ as soon as I saw those placemats I knew they had to be from the Beach Cottage. You have a little touch of her gorgeousness now! How fun!! Those colors will be easy to use with lots of things I bet.

It's all so pretty and you deserve it! I'm gonna pass on the peanut cluster today...I got on the scale this morning. Sheesh!

Becky said...

Mornin BJ! I love the filigree hanging ball!!! Girl, I thought at first it was a small ornament, but whoa, when I saw the picture of your window WOW was all I could think. I looks fantastical hanging in your window.

Also, those white plates of yours look fab no matter what you put with them.

Now give me one of those peanut clusters and nobody gets hurt! LOL!!!

Have a blessed day. Brrrrr it's cold here this morning too! However, it's gonna warm up to 57 YIPPY SKIPPY!!!

One more thing. How do you change the color of your wording on your blog post and the size of the font for your blogging.

tardevil said...

It's cold here too...wish we'd get some snow!!! That candy looks yummy. Congrats on winning Sarah's give-away. I remember that one. It looks nice on your table & the ornament is pretty too!

Kathleen Grace said...

What beautiful things you got in your give-away package BJ! The filigree ball is such a pretty touch in your window. I'll have coffee with my peanut cluster please:>)

Smilingsal said...

Khaki and white are so crisp and clean that they make a perfect combination for a table. Thanks for the bite--I mean, gulp! of peanut clusters.

Brenda said...

Oh what a blessing to win that gift from so far away. I know you will treasure that forever.

ellen b said...

I love this light brown and white look..
I see a great charger peeking out from under that white plate, too. Now I'll have one of those great looking clusters please...

tardevil said...

Me too, BJ...like Rose over at Santamaker's, I think we'll always be left wondering about what we missed out on by not having them in our lives. I think my mom tries to be a good grandmother for the same reason. She lost her mother when she was 11 & she was the oldest. We're blessed to live another day with our kids!

Linda said...

Hi BJ....what neat treasures, the filigree ball looks very pretty in your window. It's very foggy here and chili sounds good to me.
BJ, I tagged you for a fun Christmas MeMe...hope you'll join the fun...hugs, Linda

Marcela said...

It's a little chilly here in sunny Florida today...perhaps a little chili would be in order!
