last night at the barn

My wild and creative mother has always had a very strong sense of how she likes to set a stage and create a dramatic backdrop to our everyday moments. This is last night's very impromptu dinner at my mother's barn...where nothing is ever ordinary and everything is better in person than on film. Wish we could all have you over...
to light the candles...
set the table...
pick the bouquets for the centerpiece...

eat from my garden...
or the farm down the road..

the sky hasn't always been so blue in our we appreciate these magical moments even more!

  1. You are killing me. I so want to be there... And all those red-white polkadots? Come on! Be kind to me...

  2. The candelabra kicks that simple get-together up a few notches into spiritual territory. And since it's a probably a first to have all of you gathered together like that, I think all the extra embellishments are called for. Enjoy!!

  4. I just discovered your blog via CRAFT and I just love everything about it. Even the banner, did you make that blanket? The newspaper hats below are such a smart idea, very clever.
