PICK YOUR FAVORITE RESULTS- Mother's Day Table

Wow!
Usually when I do these it is almost always a
CLOSE CALL.

Not this time!
Not even close!
I don't care WHAT the news people say about
Paula Deen!
That woman knows how to set a table.
This is the table that lots of you wanted to sit at.
Paula's Perfect Pink
Tied for second place?
Rustically Refined  AND Pretty In Pink
                                source                                                                           source

All three are just gorgeous, aren't they?

And, the one that really surprised me that fell
into a close third place was 
Orange You're Glad You're Here

So, there you have it...there was only ONE person,
whose name I won't mention Jeanine,
that couldn't choose between two of them
so you KNOW who is my target for 
the next
PICK YOUR FAVORITE!
Jeanine's She's new...
Jeanine She doesn't know yet 
what is gonna happen to her..
Poor thing!
However, Martina @ Northern Nesting
is off the hook now~
and has shaped up nicely
after I made fun of her a few times.

Anyway,
I am off for a few days.
No computer for a bit but I will be back soon....
I promise!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

missed this but... without looking at the link, i think 'pretty in pink' is found at "between naps on the back porch" blog. it looks like her lovely back porch....

now i will look at the link!

yessssssssss!!!!! isn't it funny, how after a long time of seeing a blog, you get to "know" a room, which is pictured often. oh and isn't her screened in porch, sooooooooooooooooo wonderful? want, want, want, want, want. :-))))

Linda said...

Enjoy your computerless time. And I never think about tablescapes until I have to. But you won't find paper napkins or paper plates on my tables! Oh, maybe on a picnic. ;) Linda@Wetcreek Blog

Seeing Paula's table makes me want to set a pretty table today , maybe i will
I still love Paula Deen and all that trouble was over her brothers mess he made, Not her I think she was done wrong
I sure enjoyed all the pretty tables

Beth said...

All table settings were beautiful! Have fun while you are away and be safe!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

LOL! Since Jeanine is my sister, Diana, I will just have a little talk with her on the side. ; ) Sigh ~ a big sister's job never ends!

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

What a sense of humor you have! It's always fun to stop by and smile! Love the tablescapes!

Susie said...

Diana, I love seeing all the pretty table settings. Can't believe Paula could set a table better than Martha. LOL. Just kidding. Hope you Sunday is a loved filled one. xoxo,Susie

Enjoy your mini break away! I am all over the rustic table with the lovely flowers. Now at least for me at that table I could sit outdoors and welcome the stars to shine down on the evening after enjoying the most wonderful meal, engaging in laughter and conversation. Sigh. Oh and the orange setting ... So perfect for a Sunday brunch, such a happy table setting.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

How did I miss this poll?

Well, being a nurse this week and behind on my reading.

Yes, Paula would win - but mainly it is her super expensive PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS AND STAFF that make the pics so purdy - that BNOTP one is very fabulous, too.

Take care- see you soon. Hugs.

Well even though my pick was not the chosen favorite (sniff, sniff!), I still like the pink one. And I do like Paula, I think she is a good person and was thrown under the bus. Hope you are having fun!

Kim M said...

So that's the Paula behind the pink table, huh? I thought it was a fellow blogger! Pretty either way and my pick! :)

Patty Patterson said...

I'm not surprised that we chose Paula's table. I like Paula Deen anything. Bakeware, recipes, cookbooks, ANYTHING. If is has her name on it, it's got to be good!

Little Miss Maggie said...

I love Paula's table the best, and I think that poor woman has gotten a bad wrap. I hope she's back on top soon. Enjoy your time off.

Catherine said...

Paula does set a pretty table and I think her recipes are wonderful.
All of the tables are very, very pretty.
Enjoy your days off. Blessings, Catherine

Amy said...

Those table setting are all beautiful! I do, however am partial to Paula's because of all the pretty pink! With boys at home, I don't get much pink, so anytime I can go pink I'm there! :) I really like the one with the oranges. That is such a unique idea and it's very lovely. Hmm... I might have to try that setting for our next ladies tea we have. Simply lovely!

I hope you enjoy your time off..... Happy Mother's Day to you Diana!

Hugs,
Amy

Julie Corbisiero said...

Paula Deen mad a mistake decades ago and the media excoriates her; it's a case of "s/he who is w/out sin cast the first stone" imo. I don't care what she said twenty or thirty years ago and don't much care what she said yesterday. who among us can afford to be judged on what we said or did decades ago? blanky blank media; wish those panty wastes -pun intended- would grow up.
you're right, pretty table!

Katie said...

Love her furniture line too! She is talented wish she did not say what she did but we can forgive.
