An Easy Craft Project For Kids...

Happy Friday, today I am popping in to share a cute little craft project that you can do with your kiddos over the Thanksgiving holiday. It's super easy inexpensive and oh so adorable. For this project you will need, a terracotta pot, craft paint and paint brushes. You will also need whatever it is you/kids would like to put inside the pot. The pot below was used to plant pansies but you can do what ever you like.






Next, carve out a space for the project and don't forget to protect the areas where the kids will be working. We set up an area outback for my grand baby, and she went to work creating not one but two masterpieces. One pot received a pumpkin and the other a turkey.




Is that the cutest turkey you've ever seen or what? Wow, talk about a budding artist! Grand babies are the best!!!!

Once the paint dried, the budding artist went to work filling her pots with potting soil. Then she added Pansies to each pot.


My daughter got in on the pot painting as well. She used her …

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started!


These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath.


If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila! I used a pipe cleaner/chenille stem to att…

My Fall Table 2016

Today is the reveal of my Fall table setting. If you like a non traditional setting and lots of animal print you are going to love this table. As always, every year my goal is to create a table setting by using what I already have. So the first thing I did was shop the house for inspiration. This year my inspiration came from the animal print throw shown in the picture. Since the throw wasn't big enough to cover the entire table I used two yards of black fabric right off the bolt. Using the black fabric created another layer, and I love layering. Everything I chose for this table setting works amazingly well with the inspirational piece. So, I continued to add different elements to the table until I was completely satisfied with the end result.




Since the table is neutral, I used gold place mats,copper plates and metallic pumpkins to add a bit of sparkle. For the centerpiece I filled a huge seashell with pine cones, pumpkins and acorns. Instead of using candles this year, I topped …

A Sneak Peek Of My Fall Table

Happy Friday, earlier in the week I posted about Fall Table Settings That Caught My Eye. I stated in the post that I would be sharing my table setting with you real soon. So, today instead of keeping you in total suspense, I decided to give you a sneak peek. But before we proceed you have to answer the riddle. "What's black and beige and brown and copper with a whole lotta animal print"?...My Fall Table of course.




Not to shabby huh? Come back next week to see the entire table.
Have a GREAT weekend!

Fall Table Settings That Caught My Eye

Fall is in full swing and I am really loving the nice weather we are having here in the Sunshine State. I have been busy getting things ready, because I have guest coming for Thanksgiving. I also have a Fall Brunch coming up real soon. This year I decided I would do a neutral tablescape using items that I already had. So I shopped the house and went to work creating a tablescape that I hoped would WOW my family and friends. I will be sharing that tablescape next week so come back for the reveal. Since today's post is about fall table-settings, I surfed the information highway in search of table settings that caught my eye. So without any further ado, let's get this show on the road. Enjoy!

I couldn't resist. This eye catching table-setting was done by yours truly. I chuckle as I write this because I can hear my Mom saying, "It's a poor frog that won't praise his own pond". I think she makes a valid point. You can see the entire post of My Fall Table 2015…
