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 :)

Fathers and Daughters Pink and Cookies!

At my house sometimes you have to get creative.
  My hubby can work some long hours and my Anika may not get to see her "da~da~da" as much as she would like to.  (Yes, she is 15 and Yes, she calls him "da~da~da" so?) Well on those nights where she doesn't get to see him at all? This is what they do!
They have been doing this for months and when one of them forgets...oh boy!!! Now they even have colored markers, every color of the rainbow in that potty of hers (started out with just one dry erase marker)
They have been silly, heartfelt, even angry on occasion.....They have shared and made up.  Sometimes I get curious and other times I just stay out of there all together.

Sometimes I can hear one or the other come out of that bathroom giggling.  I might get to hear the funny stuff or I might just leave the whole question alone.  Sometimes  they just HAVE to tell me what's going on and I get the best laughs!
I keep saying I cannot wait to re~do this bathroom after Anika is gone off to college, but I will really miss the pile of markers on the sink.  Maybe I should make them a permanant fixture for this bathroom and when she comes home to visit, her and "da~da~da" can write notes again!

Check out my newest pink find! Tiny little pink satin balls on a beautiful garland.  I have never seen anything like these before...sure I have seen the big balls and have plenty off them, but these? NEVER!

I purchased these at Maxwell Vintage on ebay. OOOOh you don't know this place?  Dare I say it's a little treasure chest of fantastic goodies?

I found some lovely stuff this table runner.  I made an offer on it, but my offer was refused!  I was sad :(
I got my box today and inside? There was MY beauty...wrapped with care and smelling all sweet.
Thank YOU
So stop over at the blog and  be a follower, maybe skip over and see the ebay store?  You never know what you may find...make an offer, who knows right?
And Kailey........
You are the BEST 8 year old EVER!!!!
Look Y'all, she suprises us all the time....she leaves these on our porch so when we come home after a hard day, we have a treat!
They are chocolate covered on the back, yummy!  She even makes sure there is one for everyone....Kailey, you are the BESTEST!!


  1. That is so sweet! You should buy them the crayons for the bathroom. (in the kid bath section) We have those. My hubby and I used to leave each other notes all the time. He drew me pretty pictures and flowers and I still have them up there LOL
    Those cookies look delish, what a sweet gift.

  2. Their note writing is wonderful-too keep up the open communication in this day with a 15 year old is great! Those cookies look so good-I'd eat one for breakfast!

  3. What a special tradition that Anika shares with her dad. Wonderful memories are being made, one marker at a time. I think all of you will miss those markers when she's gone.

  4. What a sweet tradition for them! Thanks for stopping by my blog - yes, those little pumpkins make great candle holders, don't they?? I must say those cookies look yummy (and very pretty!) in your post!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. What a fun Father/daughter tradition! Sounds like their marker dabbles are good for a few laughs. Just curious, how did it first get started? It's always fun to get a sweet surprise.

  6. Da~da~da had to use her facilities one day. Anika's bathroom was kind of a straightner, radio, dozen or so hair holders, hangers, multiple products...well you get the picture? He was a little dismayed with the untidiness and saw a dry erase marker. She used to write a note to herself about cross country gear (forgetting it in the morning etc).
    This is where he took it upon himself to write just a short little note "Clean your bathroom, Love Dad" She wrote back and it kept going on and on.....Now she keeps a tidy bathroom because she knows dad will be in there leaving her a note :)
