A Green Thumb in the works.........

Good Afternoon,
I really wished i had a "green"
thumb like some folks..but
oh well I'm gonna work with  
what i got....

this plant started out as a "little bitty" thing now it's
outta control so for now it will remain on the screen
porch till it's too cold...

trying my hand yet AGAIN with mums I really
like them but it's hard for me to get them to live
I probably need to just plant them in the ground
next time....but isn't that purple just beautiful??

my all time favorite FERNS...I can get these bad boys
to hang around for a long time!

Happy Decorating,

Table Top Tuesday....

Good Morning,
I'm participating with Marty @ a Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday!
This tablescape is something that just came to me
I basically used leftover materials..

Last year I used the birds on a "fall" tree if you look
closely you can see on the bottom of the bird a silver
clip and i just clipped them to the trees branches I
found them at Garden Ridge in the Christmas section..

that soup tureen was one of the best
pieces I've purchased for my fall collection
I just love the color and it's a great
substantial size...

I'm trying to do better with my blogging
so just bare with me :) Have a GREAT

Quick trip to Savanna Ga!

Hey Y'all :)
My hubby and I took a quick trip
to Savannah Georgia this weekend.
We had a very nice time, we're hardly
ever without the kids but this time we
were! We enjoyed a great church service
and took in some sites. Also we ate at Lady & Sons
will post those pics later....great food!

I just love plants! wished they felt the same way about me :)
i try to have a green thumb sometimes without much
success! Here is a pic of an urn in front of a store
beautiful tropical plant inside....

I personally don't like to take pics so I tried to get
alot of my hubby:) here is is walking down the street
we were trying to find the restaurant.....

OH! I'm about to get left..........WAIT FOR ME!!!

the next pics are of some old buildings downtown.I wished we
had more time to just look and look butmaybe next summer
we can go and just take our time.i love to look at old buildings!

I thought this plant was so beautiful...don't know what
it is ..looks tropical also :)

we stopped on this little bridge to take pics of the river...
I personally don't do heights! so i took a few shots and
got off :(

carriage rides....

like i said i have a few more pics to come..just enjoyed
the time away and was glad the weather was nice..even
early in the morning it wasn't cold...that's what i love!
Well I hope you all have a GREAT week!
Happy Decorating,

Fall dining....

Hey Y'all...
I put up a few fall decorations
in the dining room to make things
a little festive for the season..take
a look!...the first few pics are "before" shots :)

just loving the orange candles....but this way seemed
"unfinished" to me so I've made even more changes...

this hutch has been the BEST  piece that I own..
poor thing has been through TOO many changes!:
I am actually thinking about doing something to
the back paneling...paint,fabic or some temporary
interchangeable panels it needs something....

i'm really digging this tablescape now...the colors are
more vibrant than before with the plain table cloth
and I just love the birds purchased them last year
at Garden Ridge in the Christmas section...when I
things i try to think of all the possibilities....guess
that's why my shopping trips are 2-3 hours long! LOL

I do pray that everyone has a good week! The
holidays will be here soon...and I'm ready for all of
the excitement,family gatherings & hustle and bustle of
it all!
Happy Decorating,

Front porch decor for Fall !!

Hello just wanted to post several pics of
what I've done to my little front porch..I
wished it were alot bigger but I'm gonna
work with what I have and be thankful !
   I am SO glad after 6 yrs I finally painted
the front door red..I LOVE it!


I picked this little guy up one afternoon at our local
Rite Aid and to top it off he was 50% so I definitely
could not pass that up!

my poor toparies have been through so many holidays!
got them when we first moved at Freds. Last weekend
I took a trip to Lowe's and looked at some of the ones
they have out now for Christmas and I do hope to be
getting them with the lights already attached but I will
definitely find a home for these on the back screened

By the way don't know if you can see or not but I've
already wrapped them with orange lights!And the leaves
are just a garland that I purchased from Hobby Lobby
(i think)

Here's a pic of the purple mums that i purchased from
Home Depot...last year I tried my hand with the orange
mums and for some reason (sure my fault) they didn't last
very long. I was also unaware that you could replant them
so I'm gonna try and find a spot for them....

I really and truly think these colors are just so beautiful. I also have
some barn stars that are rustic looking that I need to hang up some
where ...probably along the side walls of the porch..I really do wish
the porch was bigger...bigger porch means more stuff but that ok
I love decorating..i find it relaxing ,hectic & peaceful all at the same
time....go figure!

I do hope that everyone is out doing their own thing with decorating
and trying to change things up a bit!making our neighborhoods a
showcase for people that pass by...believe it or not there are some
folks out that that like to ride around and look at house...THAT
I do hope y'all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Decorating!!
