Trimming the Tree

Trimming the tree is one my favorite Christmas traditions~ I enjoy pulling out the ornaments and taking a walk down memory lane. My Shiny Brites and vintage ornaments~ glittered and flocked~ add a little nostalgia with their soft colors and time-worn patina. While some ornaments offer Christmas wishes & messages. . . I find myself wondering what…

Thanksgiving With a Touch of Blue

I took advantage of  warm temperatures to set a table for two~ with a little color inspiration from a pair plates I found at HomeGoods. Blue married with shades of rust and brown seemed like an unlikely Thanksgiving color combination but Mother Nature, seemed to give her stamp of approval with the water reflecting the blue sky, along with the…

Gilded Gourds and Giving Thanks Table

My gourds and pumpkins are making the transition from fall to Thanksgiving with a little gilding~ Dressed in wash of Venetian, Glorious Gold and Rich Espresso for the holiday table. I picked up some DecoArt Dazzling Metallics paint from Michaels~ Brushing it on to highlight, but not completely cover the lumps, bumps, and wonderful organic textures of…

Autumn’s Delight

I’m delighting in Autumn~ My favorite season! A season for harvesting, layering, and enjoying the fall foliage~  I gathered some fruit, mini pumpkins and leaves, and layered my quilted coverlet with a warm, wool plaid throw to enjoy some Autumn’s Delight at the table. This centerpiece is one you can pull together in 5 minutes…

November’s Arrival

I look forward to November’s arrival and her slower pace after all the activity in October. For us the beginning of November coincides with the leaves at their peak~ unless a monster hurricane comes along and blows them off the trees. . .  The foliage and pumpkins, along with the flavors of the season slowly build…

Animal Instincts

I am following my Animal Instincts at the table, inspired by Tiger Stripe Pumpkins and Animal Prints~ My Animal Instincts led me on a mini safari to World Market, where I spied Giraffe-spotted napkins in tan and in black~ And to Hobby Lobby, where I rounded up Zebra chargers to accompany Leopard chargers I already…

Cloche Encounters for All Hallows’ Eve

With All Hallows’ Eve approaching, I’m at the table with some spine-chilling Cloche Encounters~ All Hallows’ Eve sounds scarier to me than Halloween~ in contrast this is not the Jolly Halloween table of last week. . . No sweet treats or candy skewers are offered up in my vases as on my Halloween Treats table~ instead they…

Vintage-inspired pails are filled with assorted Treats~ To make your Halloween Jolly, with their Spooky Sweets! Ravens have flown in, landing on pumpkins at the table, Conjure raven snacks up here, inspired from a Halloween label! Lanterns dress in scrapbook paper, in time for Halloween~ With haunting double images, how-tos here can be seen. Tinsel-woven placemats, add…
