Love Day


But the greatest of these is LOVE.

I'm  so excited...
You are here!

Happy Valentine's!

I'm  in love. 

I love candlesticks 

I rounded up all the candlesticks 
I purchased
this year for this special day.

They are my inspiration. 

Not to mention that each one was discounted at 90%.

I searched high and low for pink d├ęcor.
  I knew I wanted to add shades of pink .

 Just 

a pop,

 not a lot.

  When I spotted these pink placements,
 I  glanced but kept stepping.

  Just couldn't see my table with fuchsia  placements.

Well, I kept stepping until I returned back to that aisle.  

My thought was I like the color.

Why not give them a home.

  I immediately began to think outside the box.

 They look great as rolled napkins.  

It's therapy  to decorate 
with things you love.

  That's what this short month is all about,

Love

  It's frequently referenced as the
 LOVE 
month.












Wishing you an awesome Valentine's Day.

December 25th fireplace dressed in black and white




We waited patiently for this time of the year

and now it's here.

The world begins to look extra beautiful at Christmastime:

a

sea of Christmas trees that take our breath away,

darkness replaced with strings of lights

and

reindeers appearing indoor and outdoor.

Christmas calls for that RED ornament,

pinecones, pinecones and pinecones , 

and

a decorated wreath on every door.

There is no doubt,

  this is the best time of the year.

  It's Joy to the World !


Take another sip of coffee

keep  strolling

and 

enjoy a peek of my decorated mantle.

It's  beginning  to feel a lot like Christmas.








Who's  ready?

Happy holidays!

Create the fall vignette of your dream

They just still my heart.

I tried to wait for the winter to show off my pinecones
but
I couldn't.  

I decided to go for it NOW!

I love playing around with these pinecones, knowing evidently they'll land in the right spot.
This is how I decked out my side table.

You gotta love it as much as I do.
Simple
Inexpensive 
























Here's what happens when you are inspired  by pinecones.
Happy fall view"

Fall table


First things first,
Bless all who gather here!

Do you know how much thought was put into this tablescape?

traditional versus non-traditional decor

casual versus elegant

natural versus candles

cake plate versus woven basket

tablecloth versus table runner

Decision,  decision,  decision !

Let's just do it....I'm not going to over think.

For my centerpiece,
 I envisioned a woven basket filled with pinecones
 and
 several faux glass fillers to
add personality to the  table.

I thought of how much style my tablecloth
 purchased from HomeGoods would bring as a runner.
 I don't usually go this bright but I'm in
love with the color.
 
I feel fortune to find the logs at Joann's on the clearance aisle.
  All you thrifty hunters, they were priced right

and

 it was the right day to take a picture.

 

 

 



 


 


 
 





 


 



A table setting for entertaining.

Thanks for stopping by on such a great fall day.  Enjoy the view.
