The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.

  1. Hi Sarah! I sure got some great inspiration from this table setting! I am having a 'camp' birthday party for my son this weekend and I think I will borrow the idea of putting the logs on the table! Lovely! Christie at Three Pixie Lane

  4. How chic! Such fun details and accents. I love the burlap chairs and the hollowed out log. We used to decorate a log every year at girl's camp and then put it in the final campfire. It reminded me of that, such a pretty and natural holder. Those chicken wire chargers are fabulous - oh too many cute things, aren't there!

  8. Oooh, Sarah, thanks for putting us onto the Posey girls! For the barnyard table, I think my favorite element is the unexpected use of burlap to drape the chair backs. It adds a lot of drams!

  9. Sarah~ What fun & how creative! I've seen those chicken wire chargers, I didn't realize they were from PB! Love the planter/log too... Do you think burlap draped over the back of my chairs might be a solution to camouflage my dog-chewed spindles?! I threatened to have all Gracie's teeth pulled when it happened :-) Thanks for sharing this fun idea!

  40. Sarah,
    The department store in Paris where I saw the flatware is BHV in the Marais district. French-Kissed told me about it. It has everything. Plan to spend several hours there. Brugge is an adorable and quaint city that is so historic because the buildings were not bombed during World War II. I have been there three times in the last 18 months. Thanks for stopping by our little blog.

  47. Sarah, thanks for sharing this tablescape from the young women of Posey. Clever indeed how they used the hollowed-out log to fill with fresh yellow stock. How beautiful is that? I love the linen and burlap with the center piece, it all ties in for a lovely setting. I'm off to say hello to the girls at Posey.
    Have a great weekend Sarah.......
