I saw these little guys in a magazine the other day:
They're little name placeholders that look like tree stumps, and I decided I wanted some of my own! It's completely impractical, since I've never hosted a meal with name placeholders in my life, but I couldn't stop thinking about them. I got some clay and started stump-making:

I think they're pretty cute! I decided I wanted mine to be white instead of black.
When I was a kid and my parents were teaching me manners, my mom would always talk about the hypothetical situation of having Barbara Bush over for dinner. It's as if she wanted to say to me "Would you put your elbows on the table if the queen was coming to dinner?" But since America has no queen, it was always Barbara Bush (who was the first lady at the time.) She would point out whenever my manners weren't rising to the Barbara-Bush-standard. So as I was deciding what name I should write on my fake-name-card mini-photo-shoot, Barbara seemed like an obvious choice. You never know when Barbara's going to drop by...but I'll be ready! And she'll just love my little tree stumps, I'm sure.
