I always dress up my dining room table. It is the first thing I see when I walk downstairs of a morning, and it is important to me that my table is fashioned in a pretty way. So this space is usually dressed up seasonally, with a bouquet of flowers, or simply with an easel and my most favorite recent layout. Whatever my current mood, the center piece has to show off what I am feeling.
An assignment for HeidiSwapp was to show off a little what goes on in my home this time of year. There are a lot more details today on her site...and I hope you will go check it out.
A couple of things I want to reiterate...
Decorating does not have to be expensive. Nothing tickles me more than using traditional paper products to make custom embellishments for my home. I have done it for years, and continue to be inspired by the challenge.
Taking every day items, like coffee filters, vintage books, pumpkins from the grocery or a neighbor can take every day normal into something pretty. And I like pretty.
Thank you readers for visiting me. For leaving encouraging comments. For being faithful. You, to me, are some of my lucky stars.
