Your tablescape is so romantic. I love that. Whites and creams are some of my favorite colors. Sounds like a fun event.

Cami @ Creating Myself

I love all your eclectic 'scapes but that 3rd one really chrams me. Course that may be in part, because I am longing after the lidded candy dish in the pic. I DID have one just like it. Until yesterday when Coleson (he's 2) thought I was hiding candy in it & peeked inside. I guess in his disappointment in finding jeweled napkin rings instead, he dropped it on the floor & it shattered. :o( Having grands & a room full of pretties is tough sometimes but you know that already, don't you? *grins*


The tablescapes are stunning! We don't even have a dining table! LOL!


Wow! You make lovely things!
Thank you for visiting and for the nice comments!


Look like a great time around the table. The work you do is wonderful. But the puppies changed colors and they are holding still.:-)
Thank You for sharing

Karla the table looks fabulous.
Cindy's Centrepiece Party is such fun. So much 'eye candy'


simply stunning!! Your creations are so beautiful!!! I had to go back to the different pictures to be able to 'see' everything. I enjoyed my visit very much.
Have a wonderful evening,


You do such amazing table scapes, I would sit there fiddling with them if I were a guest at your table! Rachaelxo

Hi Karla- love the neutral tablescape you've shown in the blog. It's all so beautiful! Your studio is not only functional, but it's beautiful.

Karla your centerpieces are always great. I love how you use a variety of things and it always works and looks wonderful. The glass heart is so beautiful and I am sure it is calling out my name. Have a wonderful evening.

I love the tables! I could never do that in my "public" space at home...I'm a messy crafter and I never put anything away. And my dinning room table is loaded with junk right now....sigh....too many fun things keeping me busy and not enough time to fluff....I guess I better move some stuff around so we have a place to have Valentines Dinner! Unless I just clear a spot for my husband to sit at! Tee Hee!


Your table is lovely but your cards and tags are incredible! I love them!

.....I got home late from an out of town trip. It was dark, but I walked to the mailbox. Reached in my hand and felt around for something good. Joy, joy, joy, the envelope was in there.

Thank you Karla and ALL of the others that participated. I looooove my tag book. Thank you Karla for the care taken with each and every item in the envelope. And thank you for all the extra goodies.

Love the Tablescapes. I get a warm fuzzy feeling seeing The familiar things I sent you. So happy you liked them.

Oma Ruth had a tea Party yesterday. I will tell her to send you a pic.

The Sugarwings fairy is adorable.

Kerryanne English

Karla, I love the way you think of everyone - even when planning a table centrepeice.
You're one special lady.


Your dining table centerpiece blows me away and the Sugarwings pen is just adorable. My table is burried under craft and sewing supplies but its an unorganized mess. =O

Off to check the other centerpieces. Take care and have a Wonderful Valentine's Day.

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I think I may be centerpiece decorating challenged! I never can seem to make them look as interesting as yours!


Hi Karla! I love your tabletop scenes, especially the one with the mirror ~ you probably know that I LOVE anything with antique mirrors included!!

Your little musical note / Roses journal is just too sweet!!

Big TX Hugs,

Kayla @ The Bird's Bungalow

Wow your centerpiece is really cool! I would wannt to touch everything infront of me if I was sitting at your table (if that doesn't sound weird lol). So much vintage fun! And thanks for stopping my my blog!


your centerpieces are so interesting. I like the use of the old bottles, and the paper accessories, too.

Jen R

Love the table top! The head board/bench is cool too...

cindy~my romantic home

Thank you!....you were one of my first "Wow" blogs I found!!! I'm so honored that you joined in today!!! I love your centerpiece! You really have some gorgeous things and such great taste!!!


Beautiful pictures, the angel for Sugarwings is just the sweetest!

Hope Ellington

Maija Lepore

Happy Bloggiversary!
I'll be celebrating my 21st wedding anniversary!

Heather ~ Pretty Petals

Your tablescapes are beautiful Karla! Truly, something I totally fell in love with when I visited you. I love how you take little bits and make it into something big!

SO sweet of you to make me that tag... it was no problem helping you!

xoox Heather

Jenny S

Wow!! So much fun!! I never danced on a table, but there was a bar during my bachlorette party....hmmm maybe that's for another post!! hahaha


Every year I say I'm going to have a Valentine-making party and every year it comes and goes so fast, it never happens! Looks like fun!

Beautiful tablescapes -- wish I'd known about this party before! Maybe next year -- I'm off to Carol to find out who's doing what!

On another note, the tag book arrived yesterday and it's fabulous. I'll photograph this weekend -- tried last night, but I really need natural light. I loved it -- and was pleased I had a Karla tag in there, too! Happy Heart Day -- and thanks for warming ours!


Ooohh! You have been busy! So gorgeous!!
