Something I love

So way back in January, when it was still cold outside, we bought this amazing piece of furniture. We had been searching for a while for just the perfect cabinet. When we went into Nadeau I knew right away this was the piece for us. It was charming, sturdy and just my style.

So my handy dandy husband loaded into the back of our truck with blankets and cardboard and other handy things...and off we went!


Now the reason I needed (ahem...wanted) this cabinet is because I have a serious love for dishes. And my love for dishes is directly related to my love of entertaining. Hostessing a nice dinner and making people feel special is probably one of my favorite activities. Good food, good friends, lovely table, nice dessert, chatting the night away...doesn't get much better than that.

And I had fallen in love with some dishes I could only get at TJ Max...and not all at one TJ Max had all of the it became a scavenger hunt. One that I actually got a few friends/family involved in...I have dishes from WI (thanks mom!) and NC (thanks Kristen!) as well as all over Nashville. I found tons of it on clearance, bought some pieces at full price and received many pieces as gifts. It was really quite a fun experience to get them all. Not sure my husband liked it, but he likes eating off of them so I guess it's all good in the end.


Now don't you think they are just lovely all tucked into their sweet cabinet? And wouldn't you just love to come to dinner? We would love to have you!
