Decorating with Tumbleweeds


I live in the southwest.......and tumbleweeds are a common sight in this part of the country.      We see them blowing down the road,   caught up in barbed wire fences,    and trapped in corners.

Coffee Table Repuposed to a Mantel Piece



When H pointed out this coffee table to me at a yard sale Saturday,   I told him  " I don't think we need another coffee table, sweetie"  then he said  "but it's only $5,  honey"     So,   I took another look at it and loved the carvings on it and thought that surely we could figure out how to repurpose it since we didn't need another coffee table.

Week end Treasure Hunt


This weekend,   my treasure hunt involved a road trip to Leveland Texas to the Petticoats on the Prairie show.      Leveland is about 100 miles from where we live and with the speed limit 75 all the way,   it's about an hour and a half trip.

Formal Dining Room Dressed up for Fall



I share the family dining room all the time,   but I very seldom share the formal dining room.    Since we're in the family room most of the time,   it gets the lion's share of holiday decorating.

Can a Buzzard Skeleton Hatch her Eggs....Maybe!


This was such a fun Halloween vignette to create on the family room coffee table.     I'm not much into the creepy side of Halloween.       I don't do a lot of decorating for Halloween,   but what I do is normally not toooo scary!

I love,  love,   love making wreaths!   

 I always keep a seasonal wreath on the front door and you'll see them scattered generously around the house.

Fall Tablescape


I try to create a fall tablescape each of the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving.    Thanksgiving is such a special family day that I want the tablescape to be perfect.    So,   about the week before Thanksgiving,   I will look thru all my tablescapes and select my favorite one to recreate on that special day.
