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 :)

The finishing touch on Paris

I guess I thought it wouldn't be fair if I didn't let you see the~~~ piece de resistance~~~
Or would that be this adorable couple?

That are about to be torn apart in 3 days

~Pink Romantic Roses~


The girl still gone, I went a little wild with the pink.  Here is the daytime version of brunch for the family of three.  I am sure she would tell me exactly what she wanted to eat, how she wanted it cooked and how she wanted it served.
I got so excited "playing" with all my treasures
that if you look, you can see sooooo much wrong!
Silverware missing here and there, how is a person supposed to eat with out a spoon?
Some of my vintage china comes along with is own character!  See?  This one has it's very own chip!  I am not sure how the chip got in it, who did it or even how old the chip is, but I don't mind the chip at all.  I imagine someone, maybe a child even, having a little faux pas at the table and never saying a word to a hostess.
Who remembers paper straws?  I remember them from when I was a kid!
Now they weren't around for long, so I am not THAT old, but these are so
reminiscent of years past.......I HAD to have them!  Maybe I will serve strawberry soda with a splash of vanilla ice cream in this vintage glass~Yum!

Night time falls........
The mood changes.  The candles come out.

I suppose I cannot get away from creating a pink tablescape every chance I get.  It calms me to take out my Noritake goblets and place them with anything that has pink roses scrolling through it

It's so "girly" so romantic.....what girl couldn't fall in love at this table?
Strawberries and sugar maybe?  A cool summer salad?  Maybe the menu doesn't matter, mabe it's the conversation.
I imagine this a tablescape for an outside affair, under the stars with a cool night breeze.  Fireflies, a bottle of wine and maybe a kiss or two.
