Pink Saturday

Today is Saturday and that means it's Pink today! (well actually it's Sunday right now)...

I've just about let this weekend come around again and not have anything to post. Last night I worked hard trying to have something to share. I feel like it's show and tell. We use to do it on Monday's in elementary school.

I decided to keep up my Christmas tree. It was up anyway....who am I kidding? I just love it so much and decided to decorate it for Valentine's Day with pinks. My foo foo room has a lot of pink color. I think it turned out nicely and am happy with it.

Hopefully you will too.

Today I'm joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.Have a great weekend!

Winter Woodsy Tablescape

Hi Friends,

A couple of weeks ago I saw a blog that inspired me to do my latest tablescape. It is my woodsy interpretation of Winter using the things I have on hand. (I don't have a lot of dishes and acessories to use yet...)

It's been a bit warm in Southwest Florida lately, but we did have some cold days with heavy frost that caused our grass and plants to freeze. Our grass is dead, brown and crunches under your feet. With no rain either it doesn't help.

So, this tablescape reminds me of the dead of winter in Florida.

Hope you enjoy the pics. Sorry a few are upside down or sideways. I tried to fix them....didn't work.

Thank you to you faithful ones that have signed up to follow me.

I appreciate you so much!

These are dead branches out of my yard.

Love this candle. It has an oatmeal fragrance that smells so good!

This week I'm joining: Marty at A stroll thru Life.
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage!

Table Top Inspiration

Dear Friends,
It seems I have good intentions, but lately haven't been able to be part of some of the blogging parties.
Last week after seeing Marty's Tabletops I wanted to do something different and I did. I'm pleased with how my two side tables turned out.
One is more masculine for my hubby and the other more elegant, feminine for me!
The trick is keeping them looking that way! ha! If you know what I mean...
So this week I'm joining: Marty at A stroll thru Life.
and Sandy at: Time Tuesday.
Love & Hugs,
Hubby's side with a silver tray and other items from his dad.
My side with a lovely scarf given to me and a unique item lit up!
Close up of the purse night light! I love it!

Another view of my side. Tea cup is Cocoa Cambria. (you might remember that from the past). Picked up a bunch of those at GW on vacation.

Sorry for the side view of the silver platter. Have this for all my hubby's remotes! How many does a guy need? LOL
Belt Buckle from his dad. (He passed away a year ago).

My favorite part of this display statue of pony on the Reader's Digest books. Loving it with the wood on the table with the silver tray.

Hope you enjoyed my vignettes! (hope that is the right word!) a new one for me!

Winter Wonderland 2012

Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe we are in 2012. Another year and another birthday for me.

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday.

Like many of you these have been busy days and I had my family with me and just decided to focus on them. That's why I've been gone so long from blogging.

When putting these together and taking pictures I was hoping for cooler weather.
We've had warm temperatures during the holidays and finally this week had a a break.
They are calling for a hard freeze tonight in Southwest Florida. It's not good for our crops, but I have to's a nice break as I prefer cooler temps once in awhile.

Thank you for checking out my pics.

I'm joining Marty at Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday even if a bit late.

Wishing you all a blessed New Year filled with hope, peace and joy!


Feeling like Aqua

Hi Everyone! This spring season I've noticed everywhere I go the stores are decorating with teal, aqua and pretty greens.  March mark...
