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....

Thanksgiving Blessings

I have so much to be thankful for....... Two beautiful grandgirls, sweet as can be. Here they are dancing with their Pops......

I love spending time with them. They are such well behaved little ones.
Kait got them started dancing. Here she is with Brookie Boo.

Can't leave Haylee out or it'll be BIG trouble.....

You can see the family resemblance here..... Casey with Brooke.

And Angie with Haylee......

It's kind of neat the way each twin resembles one parent, isn't it? Here they are with their uncle Bryan and his girlfriend Amanda.....

It was a great day........

Thanksgiving Tablescape

I've neglected my blog lately, busy making the adjustment to the single life. It's so freeing to be responsible for only me! I'm learning a lot about myself. There are men out there who truly don't mind shopping (I didn't think they existed on this earth) and who are generous with their compliments. It's nice to feel appreciated. I spent the afternoon yesterday playing with my dishes. Thanks, Susan, over at Between Naps on the Porch for inspiring me. I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving at my son and D-I-L's house so the tablescape is strictly "dish therapy." ;-) CLICK ON THE PICS TO ENLARGE THEM.I can't get enough of my French chef dishes these days. I started with other plates but found that the colors in them coordinated so well with the pumpkins.... What do you think???

Here's a close-up of the berry garland I pull out every fall.

I'm thinking of painting my dining room a lighter color. Any suggestions on color??? The deep red dominates the room and detracts from my tablescapes, don't you think?
