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 :)

Anika you're Special!!

 Don't you just love a girl who can accessorize?
Look at my beautiful Anika...I let her dress herself for school today!!  Ain't she cute?  That Hannah Montana purse is just the right touch!
She stole her dad's slippers and didn't even bother to take off the clearance price tag, now that's class!
She might just kill me for this, but then again.....Nah she loves the attention!
Homecoming, got to love it!
Tacky day and one other girl beat her???

I have been given extra time to blog and this is why!
My Anika has been "benched"!
She did some pretty good ligament damage to her foot and ankle.  After x-rays and a mri they gave her some options and this is what MOMMY chose!
The doctor said it's a littl over kill, but if you have ever had a child with a cast that comes on and off, you know the routine!  I opted for "it's staying on till it heals!"  No whining, no complaining, no it looks ugly, it's itchy, I will put it right back on....yea...heard all before!
Cross country running for her is over for the season.  Although it is sad, she can still keep in shape and prepare for next year.

4-H can get all of her attention now,  Miriam? Where are you?


  1. Oh, no. I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's accident, although I sure do like that orange cast. (That's my favorite color.) Also, I cannot believe she didn't win the tacky day contest. Lots of my former students thought tacky day just meant turning your shirt around. How do you explain tacky? Either you got it or you don't, right?

  2. Sorry to hear about the accident-hope she heals fast! Love her tacky apparel!

  3. Hi lovely lady.
    I'm also sorry about your sweet daughter's Accident. She is going to be up and running before she know it. I do like her orange cast sweet.
    I would like to thank you so much for your sweet comment on my new fall Tablescape. I hope you all have a great week.
    XXOO Diane

  4. Wow, that girl's got style! Love it! Best of luck. I know what you are going through. Our youngest daughter tore her ACL the 2nd game of her Junior year. Took her out for the entire season. She was not a happy camper. Now she's married and soccer days are way behind her. Hope Anika heals well!

  5. Ooops so sorry she had the accident! Although I really think 'crimson' is the right color choice (lol) daughter is a graduate of University of Tennessee and she will love the orange cast! Thanks for dropping by and the sweet comments! I think the pink vase is an early Fenton, no mark as I remember, but you know Fenton used paper labels for a long time! Blessings!

  6. hahahaha she looks great! I miss those days of dressing up in school. My son had that this week too (he's in middle school though) Today was the first pep rally and he really liked it.
    I hope her leg gets better soon!
