About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Mardi Gras Mambo

You know.... I love decorating for the holidays but haven't ever done much for Valentine's Day. I guess it's because down here in the deep south we decorate for Mardi Gras and the two holidays fall close to one another. So in lieu of a Valentine's post, here's my tribute to Mardi Gras. Put this little tree together a couple of years ago from materials from one of my favorite stores - Michael's.


  1. Terri,
    Those are really beautiful, how creative you are! cindy

  2. Were you in the hurricane? I have been in several, but nothing like Katrina.

    Because I live in Plant City, Florida, we celebrate our strawberries. I took pictures of strawberry fields today to put on my blog. Our Strawberry Festival is coming up at the end of the month.

  3. Yes, Katrina passed right over us and also Gustav this past fall. We live about an hour north of New Orleans and had lots of evacuees living in hotels for months afterward. Actually we had more damage from Gustav. We watched the shingles on the back gables rise and fall, rise and fall, and finally blow off and hit our back windows. Had to put a whole new roof on and pay that new "hurricane deductible." Ouch.

  4. Thank you for stopping by and visiting me. I love your Mardi Gras pictures. Great color.


Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from y'all....
