Oh my, I was a Mrs. Gwartney, and I was a high school year book editor. The degree is in English. I've suspected for a while that we are cut from the same cloth, at least in some respects. Another stunning tablescape. I love the silver marine appointments for WS and PB. You never fail to inspire. I've given so many copies of A PASSION FOR BLUE AND WHITE as gifts...a stunningly beautiful book. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! Cherry Kay

Blue & white......my favorite colors for the bedroom and the sunroom. Peaceful and serene. I smell the salty breeze, feel the wind in my hair as my feet dangle in the water off the dock. Can you ask for anything more. Happy 1st anniversary SWEDE. Love your blog.
An admirer, Donnalee

I am a fan of blue and white decorating but keep getting distracted. Love your settings and agree with your theory of full length tablecloths. Will have to try your method of using two of them.

Beautiful tablescape! I also recently set a table with a seaside theme! As a former English teacher, I also applaud your philosophy of blogging!

What a beautiful and elegant setting you've created. Love the crabs and shell china. This looks like delightful dining.


This is a refreshing summer tablescape! Love the tablecloth and all the pretty dishes! Great job! Count me in on your giveaway! And finally, congratulations on your 1st anniversary. I have enjoyed all your tablesettings and they have inspired me to continue on my quest for wonderful china!



Congratulations on your blog-aversary!!! Your table is so pretty. I love the silver crabs walking about and I'm secretly coveting the MOP flatware.. oops no secret anymore is it? Your glassware is stunning. I love Marc Lacaze's pieces too. Great table.. Thanks for a chance to win such a gracious giveaway as the book. Many blessings, marlis
