Fancy Friday Pinkalicious!

This picture really says it all for us! Have you read the book? Pinkalicious? You see, Lil' Fancy Sis also goes by the name Hollywood.  Pink lip gloss must be applied before bed, while wearing a pink princess hat, decked in pink shades and a fluffy pink robe.  Every day, Lil' Hollywood has to wear two different colored socks.  It doesn't matter what the event is or what wardrobe she is sporting...two different socks.  In our opinion, Lil' Hollywood embodies all things pink...needless to say, she's a fancy girl! Need we say more? … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Glass

Glass...we have to admit, we weren't feeling the love.  Some days just aren't fancy.  But, when we began to search around our world, we realized there were a few things that were worthy. Like my great grandmother, GaMa's crystal cut bowls with a snowflake design.  They are so delicate. This hand painted Venetian Grappa glass my father in law brought back from Italy. Then my mother in law gave me this hand blown ornament, because she knew I'd love it! The "Scotch Glass" is my husband's favorite, given … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Mugs

Kristin's Mugs~ Look closely and you can see a coffee stain in this mug! This is my happy mug and it was given to me on my Birthday from my kids.  I drink my Americano out of it every morning. This little baby was given to me by Chris Ann years ago.  She bought it while she was in NY at one of our favorite stores, Fishs Eddy.  I love to serve lattes in it for our guests!

Fancy Friday Dishes

Kristin's Dishes:  A fancy dish could be a dish that was passed down from your mother-in-law.  I wonder how many meals were served with this flow blue plate as the center piece? This stack of real seashell bowls were passed down from my great grandmother.  She entertained with fine china and linen napkins.  I bet the ladies wore white gloves while they were being served shrimp cocktail in these fragile dishes. Fancy could be that gem of a teapot found at a yard sale.  This beauty was loved and repaired with thought … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday For All

Welcome to Fancy Friday at LoveFeast Table!  Every Friday for some time now we have been sharing with you the things that inspire us.  We usually pick a theme to use or a whimsical story or happening.  The theme might be a color, a crazy car, travel, an event, food, a pretty table, a feeling....any kind of thing that gets our creative juices flowing.  We have tried to format these posts to be a little bit more about the pictures and a little less about the writing.  We think sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words.  Below … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday-Pictures

I love the pictures on my walls.  They each have a story.  Like this one.  It was given to me by my husband on our first anniversary.  It hangs above my bed. This one that my mother took.  It reads like a miniature oil painting and captures a moment with my son and baby daughter. Teapot, that daughter has grown and painted me this little number.  It sits on my kitchen windowsill. This was taken when my oldest, Drama Boy, was about 7.  I always think of U2's War album. This little watercolor I … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday – Inspiration All Around

Fancy Friday has come again!!  There is a lot that has been inspiring!  February and March were jam packed with tons of inspiration for us at LoveFeast Table.

Meeting other bloggers that you have befriended online is inspiring. I got to meet Sandy of The Reluctant Entertainer at Blissdom.   She has a blog about hospitality and sharing … [Read more...]
