Well, one thing that came out of the walk was the design for this week's table.
Pat found the driftwood-like chargers (made from mango wood) at World Market three or four years ago
These great indoor/outdoor placemats were on sale for 49 cents apiece before Pat "cleaned out" her purse of Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupons. And they took everyone of them.....we bought fourteen place mats and paid less than $4.00.
Pat found the "Anchor" flatware by Towle at Tuesday Morning last year
Designed to be a salad bowl, Pat makes double use of this "boat" - she filled it with a net and placed it on a bed of assorted shells.
The matching "boats" are for salt and pepper.
