Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! When I saw four of these pretty aqua teacups for $1.25, I couldn't grab them quick enough!

Thanksgiving Greetings Plus Something New!


Thanksgiving Greetings Friends! I hope you are enjoying a sweet time with family today. I just want to take a moment to let you know I am thankful for you, and I appreciate the time you spend reading my posts and leaving thoughtful comments!

Did you notice the new look here on the blog? You'll see larger photos and if you hover over each section of the blush pink bar, you'll find a drop-down menu with organized categories for the blog posts you prefer. Bear with me as I am still tweaking some of the older photographs, but after the holiday, I hope you'll take a moment to explore the new features. Happy Thanksgiving!

15 Minute Dollar Store Floating Mini Pinecone Garland



Happy Monday, Friends! It's time for the latest 15 minute fix.
This year I've purposed to keep my Christmas decor simple. Instead of decorating with my large tree or nutcracker-inspired decor, I'm opting for several small nearly naked trees. I shared the first a few weeks ago featured in my repurposed sewing basket tree stand. I say "nearly" naked because I'll add mini lights and a tiny floating garland. Today I'll show you how to use mini pinecones from the dollar store to create this simple garland...

Yard Sale Sewing Basket to Repurposed Christmas Tree Stand: Friday's Find #314


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! At the beginning of the month, I attended a neighborhood yard sale. Does anyone else get a little giddy after parking curbside and anticipating several sales on the same block? At one of the first sales I visited, I saw this vintage sewing basket. I inspected it closely but then walked away because I couldn't think of the  "right" place for it. However, it only took me a few minutes to go right back to the $5 find and tell the seller I wanted it. This was one of those times a piece "spoke" to me before I was inspired how to use it...

Embracing Fall in the Garden


Happy Tuesday, Friends! I have to be honest, with the temperatures here in Texas, Longing to Embrace Fall in the Garden may have been a more appropriate title!

The gallery wall update will be coming soon. For today's 15 minute fix, I'm sharing the sign...

Apples and Jadeite Fall Tablescape


Happy Monday, Friends and welcome to the Fall Tablescape blog hop hosted by Chloe, from Celebrate and Decorate! Recently, I shared that due to the warm climate here in Texas, it will be awhile before fall plants and decor start to make an appearance. I usually take cues from nature to make the slow transition to our Texas autumns. Apples are a natural choice, and for today's tablescape, I've paired them with pieces from my jadeite collection....

Nature Inspired Summer to Fall Transitions


Happy Tuesday, Friends and welcome to the Transitioning from Summer to Fall Blog Hop hosted by Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home. If you're hopping over after visiting Carol, at the Red Painted Cottage, I know you enjoyed her charming ideas! Here in Texas, the weather feels anything but fall-like! Even so, I like to start transitioning for the season by taking cues from nature. A handmade rosemary wreath adorned with a single sunflower is a lovely way to usher in the new season and of course, the fresh herbs smell heavenly!

Easy 3 Step Dish Towel Napkins


Happy Monday, Friends! Have you ever noticed that there seems to be a larger selection of cute dish towels than there are cloth napkins? I'm sure that's one of the reasons it has become popular to use pretty towels as napkins. That works for most dinner place settings but is too large for serving tea or dessert. When I came across a pretty cotton herb towel in Target's dollar bins, I was inspired to use one towel to create two napkins. If you want to make your own, follow these three easy steps...
