My new Rustic Table Runner from Faded Plains


I hope you all had a festive and memorable Thanksgiving!

We had lots of fun cooking, drinking red wine, playing music, and making memories.

The day before Thanksgiving I opened up a beautiful package from
Faded Plains.

One of my inspirational blogs I follow.

I love all of Andrea's beautiful vintage goods in her shop.

Look on my inspirational blog roll and you will find
Faded Plains.

It's a wonderful blog with so many gorgeous pictures of her home and her etsy shop.

Please take a look.

I took a few pictures of my recent purchase of this 100% cotton French blue rustic table runner.

It's sitting on my farm table in the dining room.

It looks so pretty.

Don't you just love how she wrapped up the package?

It was hard for me to unwrap it.

I saved the packaging and she also sent a lavender scent sachet along with the runner.

Beautiful touches.

Take care,

Zac Brown Band


I just discovered the Zac Brown Band and can't get enough of this band. Our home has been filled with his music.

Usually I just blog about beautiful house accessories but thought this would be fun to write about. Our family loves all types of music but this new discovery has me so happy. When we did our kitchen renovations we installed speakers all over the first floor of the house. Our home always has music playing even if we are not here. I run out for errands and return with something fun on as I enter the house.

Back to Zac Brown Band. I think all of his music is brilliant and beautiful. Love the violin and banjo in the background. His voice is exceptional too. Just love it!!

Let me know if you like them too and which song is your favorite?

I love them all but I do think Coldhearted and Whiskey's Gone is fun!!! Can't get enough of that violin playing.

Back to dancing and listening to the Zac Brown Band!!

Have a great weekend! Enjoy!

Take care,

Old Wooden Crates

Happy Friday everyone!

I came across this picture and thought it was a cool idea.

Old wooden crates stacked together.

This would look nice on an empty wall space.

I might have to steal this idea.

Just love it!

Also love the color of the wooden crates.

What do you think?

Would you use this as furniture in your home?

Have a great weekend!

Rain drops are falling on my head!

It's been cloudy and rainy and all I want to do is snuggle and watch old movies.

I need sunshine to get me in the mood for holiday decorating.

Which holidays are you getting ready for?

Most stores have forgotten about Thanksgiving and are decorating for Christmas.

I do enjoy the holiday issues of Country Living, Martha Stewart and some others to jump start


Christmas decorations. I still love the idea of everyone at our home enjoying the

Feast of Thanksgiving.

Here are some inspirational pictures.

Have a great weekend!
