In the Dining Room

Hello, everybody. It's hot and humid here.  Definitely time for cold watermelon.  I used my "watermelon" runner for inspiration for this tablescape.

Here, I decided to use a pitcher of geraniums instead of the red coffee pot.

I'm joining the party at Susan's "Tablescape Thursday" today. Thanks, Susan.

I found a great blog post with many other portraits of actresses in, but not much info, the painting of Bette davis is on there too.
