A Tablescapers Dream Store

While we were in Greensboro, I asked DH to take me to the Replacement China store just east of town.  I've wanted to visit this store for years.  They thoughtfully have provided a lounge area at the back with comfy chairs and a TV, so DH could read his Kindle while I enjoyed the displays.  …

Lemon Fresh Tablescape

Summer is here, and for some reason that makes me think of lemonade, which is funny because I rarely have lemonade.  Perhaps it is the vibrant yellow color which speaks of sunshine and warmth, and lazy evenings in the rocking chairs on the veranda.  Whatever the motivation, I have been collecting a few lemon items …

Asian Inspired Christmas Tablescape and Blog Hop

The beautiful Asian print on my new table runner becomes the base for a Christmas tablescape also Asian inspired.  Something different for this year!  I begin by covering the table with a burgundy color tablecloth, picking up the dark red in the Asian Inspired Christmas Table Runner I made just this week. It is placed …

The heat is not quite as intense in the past few days, so of course I began thinking about having a luncheon with friends over to enjoy the veranda.  There are several new additions to my tablescaping closet, some from thrift stores and some from online auctions I just could not resist.  When I saw …

Vintage Fourth Tablescapes

This year, I thought I'd do my patriotic table with a vintage theme.  I had these Bell canning jars and a vintage-style milk crate for inspiration.  It would be something a bit different than the usual flags for July 4th.  Plus, making the table fresh and new from previous years using only what I had …

Aka Kuroguro Table for Two

This month I am sharing posts that are Oriental inspired, on a variety of subjects.  Although I like a full table, and I don't mind a bit of clutter during certain times of the year, this Japanese inspired table for two begins with simplicity.  Aka Kuroguro means Red and Black, so it is the name …

January White

After the richness and clutter of the autumn season and the holidays, I like to begin the new year with a clean and fresh look, simple and pure.  Last night we got about 3 inches of snow, and this morning the view out the front windows looks much like my header photo again, just not …

Thrifting and Estate Sale Scores, and an amazing story

It has been quite a while since I showed some of my thrifting and estate sale scores. It was a fruitful autumn season, LOL! There is a new auction house just south of Brevard, and the attendance isn't up yet so prices were really low!  Plus there is a new thrift store in downtown Hendersonville …
