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 :)

I Love this table!! Everyone who knows me well knows I adore cupcakes!  For the longest time it was my dessert of choice every time a dinner was or not, I was bringing cupcakes and everyone knew it!!
These plates were a "must have" for me!  I am not sure how much I would have been willing to pay, but I am so very happy they were only $1 each at the Dollar General Yipeeeee!  The matching mugs $2!  I bought all they had!
They go so very well with my Fiesta in chocolate brown...I can smell the frosting!

They look a little like Christmas at times, but then they look like picnic ware.
I love the gingham border and I love that they are this wonderful apple green and cherry red color!  The set even had a matching hinged box.....sniff sniff~I could only find one left!

My new cherry salt and pepper shakers are actually from K-Mart, but were sold as a set of cherry and strawberry shakers.  Bunny has the starberries~She had the vintage canisters that really needed them lol!
Check out my vintage cake plate~~It has been painted so many colors to match my brown, it matched in perfect~bubbles in the glass and all!  Candle holders from my pink and brown kitchen too, perfect match.....all covered in chocolate paint.
Of course it wouldn't be a party without presents, so I had Anika run to my neighbor Brandy's and she found me this awesome paper to wrap a box~tulle and curling ribbon, pearls and it's perfect!
Flatware from the store at the Food Network~Glasses from none other than the Dollat that store !  Napkins from my favorite ebay store linentablecloth of course~bargains Galore!
:*~:*~:Beautiful:*~:*~ handmade crocheted table cloth was found at and antiques store more holier than not.  I asked about the pitiful thing and was told it was not for sale because it was so tattered~~~Well I am not one to let something like that go!!  I came out of that store with tablecloth and a smile for $3~~Sat on my floor for an afternoon and did a little handsewing and

Well I hope you liked my little table today~I sure liked doing it.
Hope you come back very soon.
I will be doing a little birthday part for a "princess" in magneta and apple green......get your attention?  did me!!
Have a great week
