Adding Fall Decor

  Slowly I am adding some fall decor.  Starting to unpack my fall accessories. My little pumpkin fairy sits on the shelf.

Nature's Essential's dinnerware lines the Baker's rack with my Bordallo Pinheiro.
I brought out my pumpkin soup tureen and mini pumpkin soup bowls.

 It's the end of summer and it is finally cooling off.  I love it when we get the Delta breezes.
I made these two floral arrangements that sit on each side of the fireplace.  The mantel is decked out with those fabulous candles I showed in my last post, along with two tall amber glass vases.  I put two lamp shades on top them.  There is room to add a led candle.  Something new this year is the two rust colored mercury glass pumpkins.  Home Goods strikes again!

Our family room, where we spend time every evening. You can see the dining room with the stone wall. I am so glad we traded in our oval coffee table for this round comfy ottoman.  I love to put up my feet.  I am also getting ready for a visit from my Mom and her friend.  I am serving lunch, so look for another tablespace coming up.

Sharing one of my favorite tablescapes.

Ok, I am off to a new dance class.  Country Western line dancing and Irish dancing.  Take care.

High Drama Tablescape


This is our Breakfast room.  I love how this looks at night.  With the french doors wide open and the lighting. It says, come on in!

This tablescape is high drama with the black and gold. and leopard print. I added a leopard print pumpkin for fun. We recently bought two of these from Hobby Lobby.  My Mother and I went shopping earlier this week.  We thought we could make some of our own pumpkins.  We are looking at making some wreaths too.

Did you notice the gold glitter high heel?  It's for a wine bottle.  I bought 4 of them on sale at Safeway when they marked down down.  I ended up paying around $3.00 each. I am a glitzy kind of woman.....

Twilight lighting outside, the magic hour. I am using gold chargers with gold plates, black dinner plates, topped with leopard salad plates.  Leopard glasses and gold goblets from Zgallerie. Gold flatware follows the theme.

My husband and I were out shopping at Pottery World and we spotted these beautiful candles. I thought they would look fabulous on our mantel. I decided to include them in this tablescape.
They are so pretty. Of course you can't buy them just anywhere.  They sell to retail.

Of course I had to include my thrifty nifty trick of using pillow cases. These are from the Dollar Tree.

Have a fabulous weekend.  I am slowly adding Fall decor to our home.

Frozen Blueberry Cheesecake Sandwiches


Did you know that blueberries are only 100 years young? Blueberries are one of the few fruits native to America.  Blueberries are a  wonderful source of Vitamin C.   As we all know, Vitamin C is necessary for growth and development of tissues . A great antioxidant as well!  Another added bonus is, they help improve memory. 

Let's get to my dessert made with fresh blueberries,  of course, I had to slip in some dark chocolate, which is also a great antioxidant.  See, healthy desserts!

Yes, graham crackers are used in this simple dessert.  Imagine how many different flavors we can use to create these sweet babies. We feel like we are eating healthy yummy desserts.  My husband told me last night, he loved these. Delicious! Just look at the added benefits!

I love the addition of dark chocolate.  I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate.

Loving Pottery World!

This store is amazing!  They have so many wonderful things for your home.  It can be pricey sometimes, unless you find things on sale.  They have a great sale going on right now. It's a wonderful experience to walk through this store and take in the sights.  You can get so inspired and pick up so many decorating ideas.

I love visiting and taking my trusty phone with me. It's over the top at Christmas, plus many more holidays.  So much eye candy!

They have fabulous furniture....something for everyone!

 Florals galore!  They have a florist on duty that will create a custom arrangement or you can purchase some, that are displayed around the store.

All kinds of vases and urns.  Many colors and styles to choose from. 

Lovely patio furniture.  We bought our firepit set here as well when it was on sale. Time to light it up and enjoy a cozy evening outside.  The nights are cooling.

We bought our round copper table here for one of our dining areas on the patio.  We love it!
It's easy to take care of.  I found using wax really cleans and shines it. We have had some fabulous dinner parties out there.

It's time to  host another dinner party out there.  The nights are starting to cool. I like to use this buffet island my husband built for displaying the food.  I set the table and  our guests can serve themselves.

My husband also added more lights outside.
Getting back to pottery World, they have a lovely cafe, just recently remodeled again.

 Fabulous lunches and they offer a High tea.  They also serve breakfast.  We have not tried that yet.
Gorgeous desserts.  This is a shopping delight!

Have a  great weekend.  We are trying a new restaurant with friends this weekend.
I am getting my hair today...Yea!  I was overdue, when we had so many doggie issues.
