Vintage Christmas in the Breakfast Room

Christmas Greetings!  Is your home decorated for Christmas?  I have some areas decorated but have yet to get to the outside or porch.  I’m hoping that the weather will cooperate on Saturday so that I can get these areas in the Christmas spirit. The day before Thanksgiving I decorated the hutch in my kitchen with […]

Fall Mantel

Christmas Outside and On Our Porch

I am so glad that it is December and the holiday season.  I’m delighted to join a fabulous group of blogging friends to share spaces that welcome others to our homes.   For us, welcoming others to our home starts outside.  We go for a classic southern look with candles in the windows, a lighted […]

Thanksgiving Centerpiece – Nature Meets Vintage

Can you believe that I’m already thinking about Thanksgiving?  In just 24 days it will be here!  Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays.  I love being with family, love the decor, and of course, love the food! Although we won’t actually enjoy Thanksgiving at our home, I’ve made a centerpiece to celebrate […]

DIY Wood Slice Coasters with Fall Transfers
