Sometimes you just have to change something little. Last night as I went to serve dinner, I took out a trivet that is about 20 years old and I realized how old and outdated it was so I popped out the tiles and spray painted the wood. Then I added a couple of leftover tiles from one of our bathrooms and voila, new trivets. Sometimes it is the little things that make you happy.
Oh these are my new wooden placemats. I wouldn't have gone looking for them but saw them at a yard sale and fell in LOVE. They change the entire look of the table. LOVE them.
