Modern..maybe. Ethnic...maybe. Graphic...yes!

It's the Anders Runner, on sale now for 50% off at Crate and Barrel.  From their website:  "Contemporary runner in luxe Belgian velvet rows up textural, angled bands of russet, green, black and neutrals for a colorful study in abstract asymmetry. Finished with mitered corners and tailored hem."  That may all be true, but I just know that it looks amazing down the center of our black granite topped dining room table.

My Kitchen Poinsettia

Yes, I do really like fresh flowers.... Yes, my brother-in-law is one of the top poinsettia growers in the midwest... and he generously gives me a gorgeous full size poinsettia every year.... but..... this little Faux Potted Poinsettia from Target is just too perfect for my kitchen table.  Only $10 and no dropped leaves, risk of water spots on the wood finish, or droopy petals, and I get to use it over and over again year after year.  I like that.
