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 :)

Well I have been thinking about this for awhile now and I have reached a silly conclusion.
What if I had a "get to know the blogger" kinda test and made it a little give-a-way?

Hmmmm, I would have to come up with some questions from the blog when I first sat down a few months back and post the test right here for you all to take!  Some easy questions that could be found right here on the blog, that would be fun right?

Okay I know there have been some Awesome give-a-ways here in blogland....what is the bestest gifts to get?  I mean everyone does like the same thing right?  I don't think so! So a car would really be out of the question, I mean we could never decide on what kind of car to give away!!  A trip? Nah, we would all fight over the destination....warm tropical or cool northern, it would never work!!!  So what does work? $10 Gift Card - Box of 50 CardsMaybe a gift card?Iconic Puppy GiftCard - $50
But what kind of gift card Hmmmmm?

Then How do you make it fair?
Since some of my home town people are on the blog, do I disqualify them all in the name of fairness? (I don't want anyone to think I cheated when the winner is chosen) I know my family can't win!!!  (Sorry guys, that would be just if I consider you family, you are voted OUT!).

So I put the "test" up for everyone, give you a week or two to look it over and email me the correct answers.  If your answers are correct I put you in the running for the gift card?  If your answers are wrong? You are discarded, but I will let you know and you may try again?  And then, from all the winning "tests" a lucky winner is drawn.......???

Okay, tell me what you think of this idea.  I feel like having a little fun and thought this would be exciting!!
Anika and I will come up with the questions and I will see what we can all come up with.
Please feel free to comment away on any ideas you may have!

I don't think I have officially introduced you to my grandchildren~  This is "Smooch" and Carrie!  I have yet to put a nickname on this grandbaby yet, it will come to me I know it will.  I am obsessed with nicknames for some odd reason......We could just call her perfect and leave it at that!   
Just wanna hug you guys!!!

Favorite Things

In one little corner of my living room I have this little vignette.  It consisits of everything I find "foo~foo~licious"
Wooden candlesticks painted creamy pink dripping with faux pearls, organza roses and pink curling ribbon.  (I adore curling ribbon, you will see it in a lot of my tablescapes)

A vintage pink thumbprint footed glass, (which I have no clue of the pattern, darn it) inside tucked vintage tatted items such as a doiley and a embroidered handkerchief.  Another lovely  rose covered hanky tucked behind the other treasures.

My large iron candleabra in the background, painted creamy white adorned with pink tulle. This was a .99 cent ebay buy (few years ago of course) and I had to pay a whole $6.00 to ship it!
What happened to those days huh?

I was going to skip this Pink Saturday, but after going through some of the posts.......I had to jump right in!  Some very beautiful pinks this week
