Better Late Than Never

You know how the saying goes...well, I FINALLY decorated my mantel for fall.  It takes a visit from friends to force me to find the items and make it happen and that is exactly the reason it's done now.  I am hosting our first ever Bunko night tomorrow evening so I spent the weekend with my dear friend Ann searching high and low for the items that complimented my decor'.  This is my first actual fall in my house, last year I was moving in at this time, so needless to say, decorating wasn't a priority.

In this house, I didn't want the expected fall oranges, reds, etc.  I wanted something a little lighter and decorations that would blend better with room colors, etc.; I think I found the perfect mix!  I spray painted the grapevine an off-white, added white lights and the remaining decorations are artificial items I found over the weekend.  I'm so happy with the end result.  This will take me through Thanksgiving and then it's on to the Christmas decorations! What do you think? 

Peace to all of you!

Pink Saturday

 Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!

For all the new Pink Saturday visitors, this wonderful event is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.  You can visit her blog here, I promise it's well worth the click!

Today I put together a collage of photos I took of my teacup collection.  To me this collection speaks pure love.  It was given to me after my Mom passed away several years ago.  She collected these teacups for many years.  My favorites are displayed in the shadow box you see in the photo.  I included individual photos of most of those that have pink in them!

My wishes to all of you for a wonderful day and a relaxing weekend!
