I Went For The Gold

I know everyone's been anxiously waiting for the big napkin and napkin ring reveal...

I decided with all the burgundy, the napkin needed to be gold...and not just mustard gold like a Century 21 Realtor jacket. I mean METALLIC gold, which it turns out is pretty easy to find. I decided to save a few dollars and make the napkin rings out of some burgundy and metallic gold ribbon I used on the centerpiece. Besides, I figure a napkin ring is kinda like expensive lingerie...it's only on for a second.

Just FYI, Linens and Things was more expensive than Pier 1...who woulda thought?

Stay tuned for what I like to call "The ultimate test of a marriage": hanging drapes.

Gorgeous place setting! You artistic types are always so... well... artistic!

Re: Your comment on my weirdness... Hey, I SAID that one man's weirdness is another man's "normal." But your summary pretty well nailed me. Hell, I've even discovered that I like (some) chick lit!

Oh, the agent was Jake Elwell of Wieser & Elwell. But you never know; if YOU query him he might respond in something less than 8 months.

Thanks, but no thanks. I don't want an agent who takes 8 months for a rejection...I could be dead by then.
