Are you looking at this from your phone? If you are, you may want to consider moseying on over to a desktop, or at least an iPad. You’re going to want to see this from a larger screen so you can fully appreciate all the delicious eye candy you’re about to see. Saturday I went to a fundraiser called ‘Set To Celebrate’ in Hartford, Ct.
I love putting together a pretty table, but I think I enjoy putting together Autumn tables most of all. Maybe it’s because they lend themselves so well to the warm tones that I’m drawn to. The golds, coppers and bronzes reflect both a sophisticated and cozy feeling which I love. Almost everything on this table came from Pier I, by far one of my favorite
Some fabric, and at least half a day all to yourself. That about sums up my day last Thursday. It was a day of revelations and courage. Pretty strong words for a post about tablecloths and napkins. Revelations because I finally realized I wanted to return to my color roots, aka THE LAND OF NEUTRALS. I’ve been getting tired of the reds and greens . Although I love
I’ve come to the conclusion that Etsy attracts the most creative people in the world. The other day I was hanging around the site looking for an item that had nothing to do with Easter or Spring (if you MUST know, it was a blingy belt) and came across the cutest, most adorable Spring decorations that I had to share with you. Then I was
Are you thinking about Valentine’s Day yet? Usually I don’t pay too much attention to that holiday, at least not as far as decorating is concerned. I had some projects I had wanted to take care of at the cabin, but it seems the Universe was conspiring against me this weekend (I’ll tell you all about it another time). So today I decided to put
A while back I came across a cute little centerpiece on Pinterest that I was determined to make so when I was asked to make something small and easily movable for the clubhouse tables it came to mind. (I would give credit where credit is due but the link led to a questionable site. I’ll just leave it at that.) This is so simple to
A couple of weeks ago I showed you my version of a ‘rustic and refined‘ table all dressed up for Fall. With just a few changes, I’ve taken that refined table and changed it into a tablescape that shouts from the rooftops, ‘Fall is Here’, complete with corn and sunflower plates. Let’s face it, it doesn’t get much more Fall than that. I kept
Recently I heard the phrase ‘rustic and refined’ and I thought ‘THAT’S the feel I’m trying to achieve at the cabin’! To me, it represents a style that is warm with lots of texture, a tad sophisticated but doesn’t take itself too seriously. These glasses, a recent purchase from Pier I, represent that style well and I’m totally in love with them. These metallic
The last few days have been unseasonably cool here in the Northeast. We actually noticed some leaves starting to turn this weekend. Way too soon if you ask me. But since Mother Nature has never given my opinions much weight, I went with the flow and started changing out some of the brighter colors on the porch this weekend for some warmer tones. One of my
I’m definitely starting to see hints that Autumn is in full swing. Trees are already starting to turn, leaves are beginning to fall, and the days are getting shorter. That last part I don’t like too much. I love when it stays light until 9 p.m., but other than that, I love Autumn, and I have to say September is my favorite month of the year.
