The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Simplistic Prairie Dining. . .

Summer has officially arrived On Crooked Creek
and with it some simplistic prairie dining!



Early  Summer mornings on the Prairie
are full of glorious sunlight streaming through the patio doors.



A buttery yellow tablecloth allows me to bring the outdoors in. . .
while leaving the heat outside!




Black~eyed Susan's just say "Prairie" to me!
By placing them inside my wooden spools,
a unique "Prairie ~style" centerpiece is simply created.



Weekends On Crooked Creek begin with breakfast. . .
followed by weekend chores of cleaning, laundry and marketing.



Atop the buttery yellow tablecloth,
I placed a scalloped red floral quilted place mat.
Chili Pepper dinnerplate, dessert/salad plate and cereal/soup bowl are my choice for this Summery Prairie tablescape.



Newly purchased striped mustard hued napkins
are pared with our everyday  beaded flatware.



Bee glassware will serve as juice glasses. . .
and over~sized mugs for steaming fresh Columbian Coffee!!!



Simplistic Prairie Dining
has extended from the dining table to the kitchen hutch, as well.
(We'll save that for another post!)





Sunflowers,
much like those that are blooming On Crooked Creek
fill the baket at the end of the buffet and hutch!



To enhance the Frenchy Farmhouse Style ~
lampshades have been switched from Traditional  silk ivory ~
to red and gold striped linen shades with clear teardrop crystals!
