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 :)

What's in the trunk of your car???

I don't know about anywhere else, but where I live......all the thrift stores (well most) are closed on Monday.  On Tuesday they re-open full of all kinds of wonderful treasures from the weekends yard sales.  So of course, most Tuesdays are spent on the thrift store circuit.

I had a dentist appointment (Oh yipee a wisdom tooth at my age needs to come out, this sounds like fun!) and after that it was ON!
My favorite place to go is Habitat fo Humanity.  They generally have the best dishes and most of the time I can find a set.  A set of Haviland for $8.50!!  Of course all the peices are not there, but I will mix and match.  A set of the coolest plastic glasses that resemble ice (I already have some of these yay!) Some plain ivory bowls and underneath my pile some very colorful plates that I am not showing.  They are a secret for something special.  Oh and I had to buy these *:Awesome:* shoes...check out those heels, they are acrylic!  Never worn, still in the box not a thing wrong with them.  Everyone giggled when I tried them on because they even matched what I had on, perfect fit, perfect match......had to take them home for $6.00.  No, I didn't wear them all day to the thrift stores, that would have been silly (I thought about it though).
My great adventure!  I was so excited that I just took my treasure home.  I did stop by my friend Jennifers house tonight. She had a beautiful table scape to share and I will post it shortly.  She loves the more subdued colors, nature, birds, twigs, texture......I like to tease her as I can make do with the whimsical "froo froo stuff", but she really needs SUBSTANTIAL!   We are so silly together sometimes, but as she says we "get" each other when it comes to all this decorating stuff.
