November, where did you come from?

Was October a whirl-wind for all or just me?  I cannot believe we are 6 days into November and I am loving it!  I could use longer days for all that is ahead but this season is worth it.  I hope you all are feeling the same!  I know our vendors are feeling the spirit. Do you know what your Thanksgiving table will look … Read More November, where did you come from?

Welcome October!

Come get your fall on!  The pumpkin patch is ready for you to do your … Read More Welcome October!

Let’s have a feast

Guess what is coming?  The most wonderful time of the year!  At least for me, late October to December is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I love the holiday season.  I know it encompasses many things for many people and mine often…yes often has tough situations that come along but it is just magical to me.  So, to embrace the magic, let’s … Read More Let’s have a feast

Light the funky way!

Something only nature can do but you get to benefit from!  I love the light fixture above.  It is neutral in color but explosive in its statement!  For those of us who love nature and want to bring a little bit with us inside this is an amazing option.  Light, in general, is a major aspect of setting the mood in any room.  It … Read More Light the funky way!

Let them grow

This is a really good opportunity to make your grandmother happy.  All of those cans, and containers she has saved over the years can finally be put to use again….add a plant. In my late 20s I went to live with my Grandie (my grandmother) in Alabama whose health had started fading.  It was a very hard 2 years, but the rewards outweighed the … Read More Let them grow

You’re grounded

The coffee table can center or ground your room.  It can also be a gathering place.  When I was younger there was an older couple at my church, the Gigers, who would watch us occasionally. We loved going to their house because we would get milk, oreos, and play dominos for hours around their coffee table.  My brother and sister and I would sit … Read More You’re grounded

So many choices

Outside, inside, mid-century, industrial, rustic, wood, glass-top…it goes on and on.  Decide what your coffee table needs to function as; leg rest, decorative element, to keep food away from your pets?  There is no right or wrong and no end to how creative you can get.  Take this large antique trough, put a long piece of glass or plexiglass over it and cause a … Read More So many choices

Back in business

And for those of you wondering, there was no reward for being a loyal customer aka, no free phone.  But I do have a brand new phone purchased the old fashion way.  Now the coffee table adventure can continue!
