Thank you, Luigi Bormioli for sponsoring this post and allowing me to share your beautiful stemware with my readers. Have you noticed spring fever is hitting hard everywhere? It’s all over Instagram and Pinterest right now. The pretty little spring vignettes, the home decor… Spring is everywhere except here in Alaska.  Despite the piles of snow here in Narnia, the spring fever bug bit me too! Today it’s all about this gorgeous early spring tablescape, sleek crystal stemware, and mixing old with new on the table. The star of the show here just might be the centerpiece. A mixture of… View Post

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things. Thank you to all who joined us last week! I loved so many posts that joined us. We are at an interchange between season and holidays.
