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 the candlesticks with a pair of hammered drapery finials.



Check out the chandelier! It's feather garland. I simply wrapped the garland around the chandelier and used some of the existing feathers to hold it in place. This is my budget friendly version of an Antler Chandelier. Pretty clever huh! You like?





Fabric swatches were used as napkins and the floral pics placed inside the napkins add, a touch of the unexpected. The animal print pumpkins are the icing on the cake.






This shot was taken from above. Wow! I think this table is absolutely stunning!!!




Even though all the swatches/napkins are different they still work well with the rest of the table. All the different patterns adds interest to the table. Keep scrolling to see what I mean.

























So what do you think of "My Fall Table?" I absolutely love this table and I can't wait to share it with friends and family.


Happy Fall Y'all!

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!

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
