The table is all set for Thanksgiving...and I can not wait until it is over!

Today I am joining Between Naps On The Porch for my first Tablescape Thursday.  Take a look at this great site for some wonderful tablescapes.

I really do enjoy Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing my family. Though I am anxious for it to be over so I can start decorating for Christmas.  Has anyone else noticed that the shops have NO Thanksgiving decorations out? It appears they skipped this holiday and went straight to Christmas.  Enjoy my tablescape & and have a  HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

I spent the evening with Eddie Ross

Well me and about 100 other people!  My daughter-in-law and I attended  a presentation by Eddie Ross  last evening in Richmond.  He shared some great Christmas decorating and tablescape ideas and it was really a fun evening. Eddie is just as funny (and cute) in person as he is on TV and in his blog.  My only regret is that I never got close enough  to get a decent picture. So Eddie if you are reading this you owe me a picture!

I am taking the leap!


I have been lurking around blogs for some time now and decided that creating my own blog would give me an opportunity to join in the fun. I love the creativity found in the wonderful blogs on decorating and crafting. The best part of blogging seems to be the kind people you meet and the friendships that are born. I am so excited about this new adventure and I hope you will laugh with me (or laugh at me-that's okay too), possibly learn something new, and share all
your decorating ideas with me.
