My Springy Table

I'm not really much of a bird person.  I saw Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" when I was seven sleeping over at a friends house (Mom, just pretend you didn't read that, since I was allowed to see "R" rated movies till I was 17).  But I've noticed they are super popular this year.  I found this table cloth at Target for $8 and some change and oddly enough I kinda loved it.  It works for Spring and doesn't remind me of a black and white horror movie at all.

Tablecloth:  Target ($8 ish)
Placemats: Target ($1.98/mat)
Silver charges: Goodwill ($2.99/charger)
Dinner/salad plates: my grandmothers
Napkins: Dillard's ($1.80/napkin)
Vases: IKEA from our wedding
Roses: from Husband for Valentine's Day

And just for fun here are some close-ups on the tablecloth, so you can see for yourself how much it doesn't resemble a Hitchcock film
