On The Lookout For One Of These..........

My special guy loves the smell of simmering potpourri in our house and would love to find something like this to put on the stove. I found some amazing pumpkin spice potpourri at a little florist next to where I work and I am dying to use it.
If any of my blog friends have any leads on one, please let me know.
Thank you kindly,

Marshall's is Magnificent!

So after dinner on Friday, I talked my sweetheart into poppin into Marshall's to see what bargains we couldn't live without. Yipee I found a man who likes Marshall's!!!

Found this adorable "Harvest" sign, I don't like Halloween but I think Thanksgiving is the very best time of the year.
Bubble Baths are my very favorite thing to do at the end of the day during the cold fall/winter months. I went to CVS the other day and they had no bubble bath! Why in the world would they not carry bubble bath? Now of course they had "Mr Bubble" but I am a bathing beauty and I wanted something a little more indulgent. So glad I found some rose scented bubble bath at Marshall's.And of course, a candle sets the mood in any room.

Love & Happy Fall!

Looking For Some Shabby Ideas

Ok Ladies, I am planning my wedding, I know it is like 8 months away (June 2011) but I am a very organized woman and if I dont keep everything going, it will become overwhelming for me as the date approaches.

This is where I am hoping I can get a little "shabby chic, vintage, victorian, chippy, worn help". If you could share some ideas for table settings (outdoor dinner around 5:00), I would be ever so grateful.

My colors are pink (is there any other color that cries "shabby chic"?) and white. Lots of flowing crystals & candles. I found these awesome lanterns for the center of the tables. They are silver but I am going to paint them white & sand them down a little.
Thank you for any help or ideas you can give me. I am having so much fun planning this very special day.

Out In The Beautiful California Sunshine

When my weekend started out, this little area on my front porch looked like this:

But after a little staging, transplanting & rearranging, it now looks like this-

This poor little plant stand used to look like this:

But a little can of spray paint can make it look like this-

Ugly Blue Planter...............

Pretty White Planter..............

Brought this pot inside and bought a pretty hydrangea to enjoy. I love them all year long.

Well I trimmed roses and swept and hosed down and cleaned up the front yard while my sweetheart worked on a rather large project in the back yard. Cant wait to share with you what he is building for our pending nuptials. I am so blessed to have such a talented and creative man.

More to come..............

My Favorite Season............

Anybody who knows me very well knows that I am not a fan of Halloween. I much prefer to decorate for and celebrate fall.

I have had these ceramic pumpkins for years and they always make me smile when I put them out.

Even my cherubs get a little touch of fall added to them.

I love my "Better Homes & Gardens" magazine. It makes my coffee table look so festive.

My Shabby Chic Bookcase gets a little fall lovin

My Entry Way Cabinet......I love to decorate this area of the house.

My fireplace......always a challenge for me, I don't love the grey slate but I make it work somehow.

Hope the Fall weather is putting you in the mood for one of my very favorite seasons.
