Look at this darling table mat! Dianntha, from Ohio Farm Girl recently had a give-away celebrating her 100th post. The lucky winner would receive this wonderful table mat......and I won. I just love it, you should see what beautiful stitching she does. The mat is black with maroon and gold stars and stitching in between each star...if you click on the picture you can really see all the detail work. These make lovely candle mats, but you could put anything on it and it would look neat. I decided to put it on my kitchen table with my Easter centerpiece...I like it. What do you think?
I love the way it looks! Besides the mat she also included a surprise. A snowman garland, these little guys are so cute. I hung it just above the plates, and I'm leaving it there for awhile just to enjoy.
Here is my centerpiece and you can see how nice the table mat looks. I bought this tiered basket a couple of months ago mainly because I thought the top looked like a crown. All of a sudden I have a thing for crowns...I have no idea why but all of a sudden I really like them.
Don't you think this looks like a crown? I do. I've been collecting these eggs for sometime and the large one is my latest find. My favorite is the black one. Do you have a favorite?
In the bottom basket I put bunnies, eggs and an older metal egg.
Here is a closer look at the snowmen. Aren't they sweet? I love their expressions and each one has a different muffler and look at there tiny ear muffs..too cute. Dianntha, I'm going to enjoy using my mat and decorating with the garland...and when I use them, I will think of my new friend, a talented and creative stitcher in Ohio. To everyone, have a nice evening and happy days until we meet again. Hugs, Linda
