Thanksgiving Pilgrims



Each year on my entry way table I display my Pilgrim statues.  I know it is repetitive but I have an emotional attachment to them.  I love to study the history of our Country with all it glory and mistakes.  I have ancestry that goes back to the time of the Pilgrim's.  Traveling to Plymouth Rock even though now small, I felt a deep attachment to this sacred place.  As well as to the further south Jamestown.  







I love using these statues.  I don't like even putting them away.  I could leave them up all year, I like them so much.  They stand about 3 feet tall.




I wish you a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving season.  I am going to for myself focus on all of my blessings.  Thanks for taking the time to see my post.

Me & My Dolly Tea Party



It will be getting cold.  My sweet little Granddaughter is over to share with her Dolly a beautiful afternoon tea.


 This sweet little girl is just 2.  She is the new baby I photographed inside my Cinderella Coach.  What a difference a couple of years make.



One of our last warm afternoons.  The flowers and trees are changing to their beautiful Fall colors.










I have been using hula hoops in my decorating this year.  I found all of them at Dollar Tree.  These hoops I didn't have to paint as the colors were just what I wanted for this Fall party.  I have purchased several and spray painted them, adding painted decorative flowers and leaves on them with a paint pen.  I spray several with several shades of pink.  I have had so much fun doing it.  You should really prime the plastic hoops before you use your spray paint.


 I found these adorable pillows at Target.  They are embroidered with lots of detail.  As they are reversible I used one on each side.


I loved this photo.  Both girl's are looking to the side.  A lucky accident!








I was able to get the hula hoops in 3 different sizes.  I have either used a zip tie or ribbon/string to join them.





With some of our last flowers we put them in this little flower press for a fun activity.










A little decoration I made to attach to the top of the hula hoop.  I used the tiniest paper plate.  Added golden string and set this little bird in her nest.

Please feel free to leave a comment below.  Thank you.

Country Bunny Tablescape

          
   These Country Bunnies are all set for a day at the market.












I love the detail on my "Country Dandy and his Miss".  I found them at HomeGoods this year.  I have so far, 4 HomeGoods in easy driving distance.  I found just a couple of sets of this pair at just one of the stores.  They are about 18" tall.










I love the little soft aqua cupcake pedestals.  I found them in the Dollar Spot at Target!  They were only a dollar.  I think they are adorable.  They have a matching cake pedestal as well.

The plate stack sits on top of burlap runners.  With an organic placemat from Pier 1.  A galvanized metal charger from World Market.  A dinner plate from my favorite Pharmacy/gift shop.  A little white doily and a PB Bunny salad plate on top.


I have had the trowel place holders for years.  I have used them quite a bit.  They always look new.



I love the cute little critters scampering around their feet.  They make the whole scene even more adorable.






            This gentleman is quite the Dandy.  Dressed to impress.




I bought the cutest soft strawberry jelly candy from IKEA.  They are actually large strawberry shapes.  I am going to be putting them in this Strawberry box.  Fun to look at and fun to snack on.  
Thank you for taking the time to look at my Country Bunny Tablescape.  Please feel free to leave a comment.  Your comment makes my day.  Thanks!

Valentine's Day 2017 Tablescape for 2

There will be just the two of us to celebrate Valentine's Day.   I will leave for a bit to deliver Valentine's cards to my Grandchildren.  We knock on the door and run away.  They really enjoy the surprise.











I wasn't sure about a centerpiece and when I saw the Queen and King of Hearts, I thought, well... that is perfect for the two of us.








I have pulled up two chairs in front of the fireplace for a cozy little dinner.  Since it is cold and still snowy here, there is a warm throw and fluffy fur blush color heart pillow to warm up the chairs.












I just wrapped ribbon and attached an ornament for the napkin ring.  I like how the heart has a little crown on top.




               Every year we give each other a box of chocolates.





I took a closeup of my chocolate box.  I love how it has actual embroidery on the lid.  They have this same box in a larger size and it has 2 lovely attached fabric flowers.  I like smaller boxes.








Have a very nice Valentine's Day.  Everyone loves to be wished a wonderful day.  If you don't have a partner find someone to wish a wonderful day to.  Even the person at the Grocery store.  Everyone loves a smile and a warm wish.
I will be posting with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
