My cute table

My table gets used all the time! It's not just a place where we eat, it's our homework table, craft table, and often our food preparation table (we have very little counter space!)

So for me it is really exciting to have a cute table for a change. There are only brief moments during the day when it looks like this so I try to enjoy it when I can. As soon as breakfast is over and the kids are out the door for school I clean up the table and enjoy the cuteness before they come home to eat snacks and do homework. Then as soon as dinner is over it can be cute again and stay that way until morning, although we are all asleep and not really enjoying it.

My sister made these awesome table runners for me for Christmas and I'm excited to be using them. She made one for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and a patriotic one. She also said that next year we would be getting the ones for the holidays for the rest of the year. I can't wait!

I admire my sister's patience and skill for sewing. I learned how to sew but never did learn to like it. In fact I would have to say that it is one of the few things I hate, so I'm thankful to my sister for doing the sewing for me so I can enjoy her projects!

I need something for my table. It is often bare. I really only have one tablecloth. That runner is cute!
