Rain Check? and a GIVEAWAY!

Please take note of the candles floating in their hurricanes. Yes, that's rain water, and yes, it completely foiled my plan for a beautiful outdoor tablescape this week. Please, take a rain check folks. We'll hope for better weather next week.


  1. This was all so beautiful Artie... To bad it rained so much... but I'll be looking forward to your next tablescape. Hope your feeling better and you have a great day!


  2. Artie, I know Isa's Greyfreth will be a huge success ...

  3. Artie--You, my friend, are due a big dose of sunshine! If those bottles are an example of Greyfreth's merchandise, it will be a uge success! Off to check it out!

  4. Too bad about your tablescape Artie, but I bet your garden loved it! I have a Sony DSLR, too. I have the Alpha 350. I bought it from Circuit City when they had their Going out of Business Sale. It was a fantastic deal. The reason the Sony was the choice for me is because I already had compatible lenses from a Minolta Maxxum 7000 camera. Sony & Minolta merged several years ago and forged the alpha line. I'm still trying to figure out all of the buttons and gizmos. But it is a lot of fun. ~ Robyn

  5. Hi Artie!

    The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plains...oh, wait a're in Niagara Falls...The rain in Spain causes Niagara Falls tablescape's pain. Sorry, that was my attempt to cheer you up. I have no doubt your table setting would have been over the top beautiful. And thanks for the heads up on your friend Isa's new venture.

    Take care,

  6. Sorry about it "raining on your parade" -- looking forward to your wonderful tablescape next Thursday when it is dry!

    Am going over to Greyfreth to take a look --

  7. Ooh, I'm heading over there, Artie!

    How are you feeling? Any better today?

    And hey, you got those hurricanes at Walmart! I have the very same one sitting right in front of me, 'cept mine is black.

    Justine :o )

  8. The floating candles cracked me up! We need that rain, send it my way =)

    Artie, you are the best. Thanks for the support. it means a lot!xoxoxoxoxoxo
    The giveaway is on my blog, so if people what to throw their name in the hat, they have to come to the world according to isa xo

  9. Wonderful! I will have to check out Greyfreth.

  10. Artie, it definitely sounds like we are having the same weather.
    My flowers who favour sun are starving for it. They are growing but taking forever to bloom. Your patio is looking oh soooooo good.

    I scooted over to Isa's and put my name in the hat....thank you. Claire's antique bottle creations are divine!

    Wishing you a full weekend of Sunshine. Many hugs -Brenda-

  11. Sorry about your table setting, but the floating candles do make an amusing photo:) Thanks for the link to Greyfreth. I loved it.

  12. Hi Artie.
    I hope the rain has cleared out by now!
    I'm off to congratulate Isa on the opening of her shop.


  13. Artie,
    Don't you just love those big hurrianes? I have the same one and used it yesterday on a table.

    We have been getting tons of rain in Michigan, too. I was very happy to get it (and so was my garden!)
