cA few weeks ago, I saw the Blogger Prop Swap notification in my facebook feed, and I was excited about idea. I am always looking for new ideas for props, can never seem to have enough of little things to add onto my collection, and of course, lately, I realize that I need to trim and weed though all these little bits and pieces of bowls, place mats and accents that I have around, so would I love the idea of swapping with someone else. Absolutely, in fact, I think that we should be doing this every few months, so that we can bring in some fresh color and accents to our blog.
There were so many fun bloggers, participation, the entire listing can be found on this site. The swap activities were co-ordinated by Alyssa of Everyday Maven and Faith of An Edible Mosiac, who did such a smooth and co-ordinated job of hosting the activity. I send out a box of some bowls, a few placemats and a few odds and ends to my match, Debbie Koenig over at Words to Eat By. I spent sometime on her blog and noticed that her style like mine was fairly basic. I am a fan of wide bowls and pale colors and noticed that she tended to use these two. So, hopefully, my box will add some more ideas for her presentation. I was soo thrilled when I received my box from Mary over at Barefeet in the kitchen. The box was very thoughfully packaged and contained a little of everything, a few plates, a lovely whisk and an assortment of place mats.
I have already started using some of my favorite props and expect to use the others in the weeks to come. Here is an interesting fork, that I had to rescue from my son’s clutches. The pretty design is so subtle and works well against my usually white plates and bowls. And of course, love the border accent of the place mat featured below.
