Fall Finale

Hello again,
I have a table setting that is Super Simple this week. Except for one thing, but I'll talk about that later on in the post. So let's get started.....
 
 
 
 I wanted to try something that was kinda different so I came up with this look. All white with just a splash of orange. Hmmmmm! Delightful!
 
 
  
 
 
 I needed a white table cloth, but I didn't have one, so here's what I did. I used a pair of lace curtain panels. Do you see the white band in the center of the table? That's where I joined the two panels together. I think the band adds a nice touch.
 
 
 
 
 
Next, I brought out the dishes. If you look closely the place settings aren't the same in fact, I used three different sets of dishes. It's okay to mix and match it adds interest.
 
 
 
 
The leaf placed on the plate is a clear indicator that this is a Fall Table Setting. Small detail, big impact!!! 
 
 
 
 
 
Remember when I said that everything was simple except for one thing. Well this is the one thing, the napkins. All I have to say is, DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME!!! LOL. It really wasn't that bad but it took several tries until I got the look I wanted. 
 
 
 
 
The center piece is a platter filled with pumpkins sitting on top of a decorative box. Easy,easy,easy.
 
 
 
 
 
I switched out the decorative box for a punch bowl filled with white tissue paper. Don't know which one I like best, but they both work. You like?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Since the table is so sparsely decorated and mostly white I brought attention to it by placing  the sunflowers in acrylic boxes, artfully displaying the napkins in the wine glass and by adding a splash of color with the use of napkins and florals. What do you think?   
 
 
 
 
 Thanks for stopping by.
 
2 your home,
 
Lory

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
