My Blue Valentine

Valentine vignette

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided it was time to put a new vignette on the great room dining table.  But to shake things up a little, I decided to go with a blue, rather than a red, color scheme.

Last week when I published a blog post about our new dining room chairs, something looked “off” to me in the photos, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.  I  just knew something wasn’t right.  Then I read this post by Mary Ann, which we featured on Saturday.  I knew immediately what I had […]
