Witches’ Potion Table

I’m calling all witches, there’s a potion brewing for you, Bubbling with polka-dotted pumpkins and mercury glass too!  A dutch oven in cast iron serves as a cauldron for the table, While plates are dressed for potion-making, with an ingredient label. Add the aging blood of the black cat to your witchy brew, For best results, stir counter-clockwise, not…

Pumpkin Spice 7 Layer Bars

It’s that time of year when pumpkin products and recipes abound, readily picked from the vine. . . I found Pumpkin Spice M&M’s in the pumpkin patch~ aka aisles of Target and a Target Exclusive. Perfect for adding a little pumpkin candy flavor to the classic 7 Layer Cookie Bar! Pumpkin Spice Layer Bars are a version…

All I Want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas (besides a Hatherley Lattistep :) are dogs that sleep past 4 am. . . More water in the pond. . . {Santa we need rain!} And more dish storage. . . Our lake house was built in the ’80s~ the decade for big hair, not big closets :) Our house in Charlotte,…

Bird Watching~ Chickadees

I’ve been bird watching. . . Anxious to spot some Chickadees, ever since some nested on the porch  briefly last January. This variety of Chickadee used to be common in my neck of the woods, but have been scarce for almost a year now.  Chickadees are primarily found in deciduous and mixed deciduous-coniferous woodlands so I’ve been searching…

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly

Nothing makes me jollier than Jolly Old St. Nicholas and a little sunshine in December! Well maybe a little shopping at HomeGoods :)  While we typically use our porch nine months out of the year, it’s been unseasonably warm and perfect for porch dining this December! Only pine cone and boughs-of-holly napkins, along with plaid…

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…

Scary Hand Pies

I decided to scare up some hand pies with October’s arrival and in anticipation of Halloween! Some scary hands reached out and grabbed me when I was creeping along the aisles of Target, one of my favorite Haunts, last October~ Now these sinister skeletal hands have some pies in their evil clutches. . . Literal eye candy in the form of Wilton Candy Eyeballs were also watching me from the…

Filigree and Gray Shells

It’s August and it’s Hot! I realize that’s redundant :) To survive the heat, I’m thinking cool thoughts at a table with white dishes, shades of weathered gray, and accents of soft purple that seemed fitting for the temperature. . . Along with a few shells dotting the shoreline of  the plates and table~  Conch…

Halloween Treats Tablescape

  I have a case of Halloween Fever curable only with table full of treats! Since Target is one of my favorite Haunts, I’ve been creeping along the aisles for several weeks now, exercising caution & restraint~ until recently. . . When these Scary Skeletal Hands reached out and grabbed me~ fortunately they prefer to hold a munchkin pumpkin in their…

Birds of a Feather

    I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.    Thank you, Susan, for hosting such a fun event & providing dishaholics everywhere with a weekly fix ~           My inspiration this week came from a new bird dinner plate, bowl and oversized mug I found at Home Goods a couple of…
