Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Time

Wow! Time flies!  We enjoyed a trip to Magnolia Market several weeks ago and I am just getting time to share a few snippets from our trip.  This herb table was inspired by the Magnolia Seed + Supply where I picked up some seed packets.
They have the most gorgeous gardens on the grounds of the Silos.
These are the kind of gardens that you just drool over and wish you could have in your back yard!

But to be honest with you, we were there at 8:00am and there were at least three employees tending to these vegetable and flower beds.  So unless you can hire a few gardeners, it's not likely the average gardener can get these kinds of results!!!  But a girl can dream!
Or - she can just used the seeds on a tablescape!!!
I can handle an herb garden of this size!!
I would like to try planting these seeds and see if I have any luck.
Here is a little peak inside the Magnolia Seed + Supply!
Everything was just gorgeous! I wish I could have bought one of everything, but I opted not to spend $50 on a sprinkling can and just picked up a few cheap seed packets.
I will have a few more posts in the next week or so about more on our trip to Magnolia Market and the Magnolia Table.  So if you are crazy about Chip and Joe, like we are - stop back- I will be giving some tips on visiting Waco.

Thanks for stopping by!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Thanks for the mini-tour of some of the areas of Magnolia. I know I'll never get there but so enjoy it when others post about it. You were smart to buy the seed packets as they added the perfect touch to your pretty herb themed tablescape - and at a more reasonable price than the watering cans :) Love those napkins and the green checked plates!

  2. Ann, I love this table, everything about it appeals to my gardener self! The dishware, napkins, napkin rings, seed packets, etc are fabulous! Thanks for sharing, I wish I could have one helper full time!

  3. Ann, my friends and I visited Waco last spring. We actually saw Joanna filming through the glass at Jimmy Don's Ironwork shop near Crawford. She left out the back when filming was over, but Jimmy Don came into his store and visited extensively and posed for pictures. He was exactly who you see on tv, very warm and friendly.

    1. How fun that you got to see them do some filming. I will miss their show. Thanks for your comment💕

  4. What a beautiful tablescape - the greens are gorgeous!! Thank you for sharing.
