Thanks for stopping by!!

I have found so much inspiration that I have started sharing my own addiction of tablescaping. Please feel free to join me as I enter my journey and share my passion for decorating with all my lovely little "treasures".

I decorate my home with vintage, thrift store, yard sale and hand me down items. I shop ebay with a vengance for dinnerware and glassware, the postal service must adore me!

I am very casual, but a bit fussy when it comes down to details. I have spent two thirds of my life in the south, but the southerners say my "nothern side" still comes out! I am guessing this is not such a good thing....and visa versa when I am around my northern relatives, "give me a break"!

Join me any way.......I hope we can be blogging buddies no matter where we all live :)

Meet me in Paris!'s just my dishes that will take me to Paris, but it will be a splendid trip!
Wait for the up coming table setting in this will be sure to please.
I have to get out the silver polish though, do I hear volunteers?  Oh oh, I think I hear teenagers!!!

I think a white tablecloth will do well, but the added dash of color will be a suprise, or will it?

From Plain to Fanciful

Since my blog is in it's infant stage, it really has no real direction as of yet.  It started out being about decorating my whole pink home, to decorating tables for lunches and maybe collecting pretty dishes.  For now I think it will just stay that way.  I really hop all over life like that any way, from one project to another, one collection to another, one hobby to another.   

I adore so much.  I enjoy so many gorgeous things. These views tend to change dramatically over time also.  For instance. I used to have no use for milk glass until I found these dreamy "H" lace edged plates on ebay.  I let my imagination take over for a few seconds and saw tulle being threaded through them to make the must delicious salad plate EVER!  Now they are one of my most treasured items because they can be "changed up" so many different ways.


~:*With a little bit of tulle, some "pearls", curling ribbon and organza roses these just whisper romance*:~
Someone put a danish here PLEASE!
~*:With a tall crystal sherbert glass, the possibilies are endless.:*~
A little Limoge berry bowl added just a perfect touch of pink roses.  Fill it up with stawberries and some whipped cream on a hot summer where did I put my champagne flutes?
A perfect way to mix and match all the little cups and saucers that don't really go any where else.
Boy, I wish I liked tea......can you pass the coffee?

Trial Run.....what do you think?

It took us a little while, but we think we like it!
We wish we had a bigger table so we could add some peeps and jelly beans etc, but this is fun too!
We have time and this is just the trial run
My daughter had a lot of fun too which made me very very happy!

My $2.00 China

Ok.  Everyone who knows me, knows I LOVE a bargain!  I will search out  stores for the best prices until I find a price I like.  What I love even better is finding hidden treasure at a bargain price!!

To you these may look like dishes....Oh please, these are treasure!  I love dinnerware......nope, dinnerware adores me!  I am a collector.  

I just started this crazy little obsession (thanks to Candice introducing me to this thing called "blogland" giggle) a few months ago.  Setting my table with different china, stoneware and vintage ironestone has become a wonderful hobby.  Now if I had the time to cook~~ my family would be very very happy and we would all be fat!

This lovely little 16 piece set cost me under $3.00.  It's just  simple white porcelain with  platinum bands.  From the K-Mart boutique (giggle) on clearance for 9.99.  I had some points on the good old K-mart rewards card!  So the total was phenomenal!!! 

Now stay where you are!!!!  There were 2 more sets and I am heading back down there...I am getting one more set!  I will have a set of 8, you know, in case I have the president over for dinner one day!  Hey, you never know!  What an awesome gift though, or something to hand down?  I get tickled over the smallest things.

Maybe, just maybe.........I will make some fancy dinner for four or eight, it has happened!
