I have started a project 26 this year with a group of incredibly talented woman – 13 to be exact- from across the United States. This 26 week project will consist of two blog posts each month, one will be a “me & mine” post and the second will be a challenge or theme photo. This week’s theme is: tablescapes.
Traditionally, tablescape images are photos of beautifully decorated tables. Only one small problem. We are a low key kitchen family. We eat off of plastic Christmas plates most of the year. I don’t care if the silverware matches. I just hope they use it more than their fingers. If there is no burping or farting by the end of the meal I consider it to be successful event.
So I chose to approach this project a little differently. I feel like the kitchen table is the heart of most homes and thought it would be fun to photograph the same table at different times of the day. I have always loved my friend Judy’s table. It’s big, solid, rustic and with a high gloss finish. Judy’s table has seen the kids grow up and has been the place for many special memories. We were lucky enough to be invited up there this past weekend and, as always, we had so much fun! Here’s a glimpse into 24 hours at the table.
Mexico Train with Judy and Grant just finished. Puzzle time at the end of the table with Carlie the dog and my Mt. Dew.
Everyone back from a great day of skiing. Kids were starving and apparently quite lupey as they tried to impress each other with cool food tricks.
Dying Easter eggs. This was Jeremy’s first time. I think he really liked it.
We were stuffing Easter eggs when someone realizes that Judy (who has never stuffed eggs before) is being stingy on the candy. One Starburst per egg. For some reason, we thought this was hilariously funny.
Amazing breakfast. Coffee cake crumbs.
The table is cleaned up. Its been a fun but fast 24 hours.
