~RL Inspired~


Ralph Lauren Home advertising is beautiful. 

I wasn’t surprised when I found inspiration for this week’s tablescape at the RL Home site.

RL Inspiration

Inspiration for the table from Ralph Lauren Home.

I saw these photos several months ago and thought of putting together a table, using these colors and textures.  I bought bandanas and woven round placemats at Walmart, in preparation; that was the extent of collecting the elements, for quite awhile. 

Fast forward to Monday morning, this week. 

J had another blood draw, early that morning, a few miles south of our home.  As usual, we found other things to do while we were in the area. 

A trip to Jo~Ann Fabric was on the list. The fabric store is in a new location, in Saint Peters MO, formerly the Circuit City building. If you live in our neck of the woods, stop by; more space than the former location and lots to see. 

What did J do at Jo~Ann Fabric?  Well, J was fascinated by the sewing machines.  I was beginning to think he was going to make a purchase and sign up for a class somewhere.  Definitely not our grandmothers’ treadle machines.

Another stop was Home Goods.  J found a comfy seat in the front of the store, while I looked around.  HG is where I found the navy floral plates ($3.99 each), for my RL inspired table.

We stopped at Barnes and Noble for book browsing and tea, before our return trip home.  

Late Monday afternoon, we received the call from J’s Cardiologist.  His Pro Time numbers were too low.  He’s on another dosage until Monday, when he has another test.  We are hoping the correct dosage has been found, this time.
