      I’m so glad you enjoy the ideas and inspiration, Marlene! And it’s warmed up to a tropical above freezing now! Amazing how a 60 degree swing can feel!

  3. I always enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for the good winter decorating ideas. Where did you get the green placemats?

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your sweet words, Vikki! I got the placemats at Pier 1. Last year I only got 6, and this year I went back and got enough for the whole extended family! I use them from Thanksgiving through winter.

  4. This looks so pretty! I like how you put the toolbox on the greenery placemats to add some texture. Thanks for the shout-out!
