A "French-Kissed" Invitation

We have all met or know of people in life who just simply stand out in a crowd. They are the ones with quiet elegance. They exude class and graciousness. They have an innate attitude of charm and mystery. I received an honor and outstretched hand from one such lovely friend this week, Jermaine of French-Kissed.
The first time I set eyes on her blog, I fell in love. I spent an hour there retracing her posts, and lingering over all her breathtaking photos. She is the kind of person that inspires me to come up a little higher, to enjoy my life, and to dream. She will take you with her to far-away places, and then beckon you to join her at her table.

Jermaine has been setting a variety of lovely tablescapes for Thanksgiving, using her wonderful collection of dishes and silver. She decorates with "nature", so feathers, roses, pumpkins and assorted elements find their way to dress her individual place settings. Her table is a reflection of who she is; "distinctively individual"!

I was honored to have my name at her table this week.
What a blessing to be given this invitation.

Please drop by her French-Kissed home and life
and say "Hello".
You will never want to leave!

Thank you, dear Jermaine,


  1. How lovely...both her home and your words.

  2. Love the first table setting. Simple but elegant! You have a way with words too!

  3. That's an understatement. I would like to be adopted.

  5. Oh Debra, thank you so very much for your kind words. I have enjoyed getting to know you through your beautiful blog and have been honored to have you at my table.

In my dreams...Hope you have a great weekend and if I don't check in again before Thanksgiving have a wonderful celebration.
