Yesterday a visit to Terri, the incomparable Dolfina, and her beautifully curated treasure trove to do a little photo shoot. I am a woeful Tablescaper, so I appealed to the expert, and she brought in more experts and made a party of it! Reichel, Delores and Lisa Dell’Osso of Little Church Interiors ~

It was absolutely wonderful to see how differently each of us zeroed in on Terri’s cornucopia of exquisite china, silver, curios, artwork and antiques (how many people have an articulated ivory lobster? not one, but two stuffed hens? horn handled knives?)

Lisa made a beautiful formal table setting

Then Terri and Reichel together created a vignette of times gone by

Can you spot the common denominator? Rough Linen table linen, my new line inspired by remodelista~

It was just so nice meeting Terri and Lisa again, and Reichel and Delores for the first time face-to-face. I became quite misty (but they couldn’t tell because of the famous stiff-upper-lip)… I raise a glass to the world of blog – how else would I meet such wonderful people?

  1. The linen really looks fantastic next to the silver – simply stunning all of it!
    I feel so inspired… if only I had antiques like those laying about…

    Ahhhhh, what a lovely post Tricia Rose.
    It was a special day for all.
    I’ve realized that I need to own some of your rough linen.
    I’m thinking a table topper for a 48″ round table to start and then of course some of your napkins.
    Lisa has not stopped raving about what an amazing seamstress you are and about your deep hems and mitered corners. She thinks you are the bomb as do I :)
    It really was a whole lotta fun!!!
    Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
    Much love,

  8. How smart to have a tt party. I do adore the linen one. I just purchased some linen placemats and napkins and waiting to use them this weekend. Always fun to see what you’re up to. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving. Jane F

  9. I just read the most wonderful article on your house (I saw it on It was really great. Enjoyed seeing how you live in your space. Makes me rethink what I surround myself with in my own space. Happy Thanksgiving! M.

    Fabulous styling, though it would be difficult to make your lovely table linens look bad. They are so elegant!
