Black & White

A gift that I just received in the mail from a dear friend. I will put this black and white table topper to good use ;o)

A gift from God. Just look at this beautiful woodpecker. We received 8" from Winter Storm Nemo, and are now seeing birds out our kitchen window that we don't usually see. 

Have a wonderful day. OK? 

Thank you for stopping by! I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. That table is da bomb, the chair covers with the monogram are fantastic, the topper is just perfect for you, fabulous vignette. xo

  2. Wait - none of my friends sent me something like that fabulous topper - not Fair, not fair at all - lol!! Seriously, that is great and looks perfect on your table. Love the birdie photo - wish we had gotten a bit of snow, but we almost never see any in Georgia - sigh!

  3. Such a perfect tabletopper!

    Wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  11. Pretty new table topper! Your tablescape for the party in the last post is so pretty with the CTS place mats, and I found those, too. I love the "Vietri Man" name for he has a wonderful eye for china. Thanks for sharing your comments on my blog and I enjoy your new mirror in the entry forit's a special touch.


  12. Lovely new table topper, and knowing that you have a bit of black and white I know you will use it a lot. Eight inches of snow is a bit, but I would have loved it. Beautiful woodpecker! Joni

  13. Hi Debbie, What a perfect gift from your friend. The topper is perfect for the table. I love the table too! It looks perfect with the chairs. Poor little birds had a hard time finding their food with all that snow! How nice to see the birds feed.

  16. Our feeders are on the deck just outside the family room. Every evening at supper time and early morning time, I sit and watch the birds. We have one of those little zebra woodpeckers. He's so comical to watch. Happy Valentine's.

  17. Such a pretty topper and perfect for your table. The birds are so cute. I love feeding them and watching them. It's always nice to receive a thoughtful gift. xo Linda

  19. The black and white table with the new table topper makes it a very special piece in your home, it looks magazine perfect! The image of the cute woodpecker in the snow, priceless! Thank you for your wonderful visit. I don't know much about the Virgins, except what I heard from my Mil, as I am American, from Ecuadorian background and since I'm married and live here, I've learned many things from this great culture, but than my dear Mil died 4 years ago and mother didn't live here for the past 48 years maybe. Have a lovely rest of the week.
