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 :)

Playing Dishes

Anika is my 15 year old daughter.  Her and I did a little tablescaping today.  We split a table in half and we each took and end.
 As you can see, we both came up with very different versions of table settings!  Mine a darker richer color scheme, hers subdued and soft.
 I just recieved my Sakura bowls with cherries in the mail today so I had to play with them!  My little tiny red bowls came from Home Goods a few days ago and I have the "shouldas" cuz I only nabbed 4!  A big red tissue paper flower that I learned how to make from a tutorial on Utube, is my centerpiece.  Oh my new flatware from Amazon which I totally adore!
Here is the link for the silverware: Hampton Forge San Remo 20-Piece Flatware Set with Black Handles, Service for 4

 I threw in the Coke glasses at the very last second because I thought about cherry cool is that? what a neat drink to have with dinner with these setting!


This is Anika's first tablescape on the blog.
She did a GREAT job don't you think?
She redid it over and over soooo many times and every time it looked a little different.
There were a couple of times I wanted to stop and help, but I DIDN'T!
She did it by herself and I am proud.......she even wants to do it again, but I see she is laying down right now with her eyes closed ~Giggle!
She took her own pictures and edited them all by herself too....way to go girl!!
It was a lot of fun to "play dishes" with her.....I hope she will never be too old to have this kinda fun with mom again!!


A New Country!

When I see my blog some mornings I get very excited!  There happens to be a "hit" from a new country and it just tickles me pink!  Although I will never know who it is or where in that country it comes from, it still makes me smile :)

I hope if you are stopping by from another country or just down the street, you would leave a comment and let me know where you are from.  I would like to know who stopped by to wander around and I would like to personally say "Hi"!
I saw someone from Argentina, Germany, Denmark, Austraila and Canada. So I guess I am saying "WELCOME to all of you thank you for stopping by and coming back!"
