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 :)

Purple and Green for Summer

What says summer better than eating outside?
I cannot imagine anything that makes summer more pleasant than a good meal eaten in nature.
Anika and I took a table outside this fine afternoon and started setting up. We had many ideas which included some lavender mats under our Waverly dinner plates.  Of course, as with many great ideas, the ideas came and went.  We redid the table a couple....well a few different ways.
We had chairs at one point....then we set them aside.  There was talk of going to get the round table and opting for a dinner for two, but we scrapped that. Our neighbors were cooking out....we were thinking they might like to "borrow" the table when we were done, after all they are the family of four we didn't want to break the table down to two for!
Well enough "chit chat"
Here is what happened and we Loved it!!

It was a beautiful night and we had a lot of fun,
time to put our "toys" away Anika!
"aaah mom, do we have to?"
