All set for the holidays

I've compiled a couple of unique table setting ideas for the holidays from Pinterest. I'm getting tired of the old orange pumpkin and burlap scene. Hopefully, you will find these different and inspiring....

Love this fresh Boho table setting from 100 Layer Cake. The green, teal, orange
and rust color combo would work well for a natural Thanksgiving table.

 This table setting was originally created for a wedding. I am digging the color contrast of white and deep greens and purples. It's simple and elegant and could be easily adapted for the holidays!

This is a more creative approach with using pumpkins from Poppy Talk.
I also love the charcoal plate with simple stripe napkin.

This table was done for a brunch but can easily be adapted for the holidays.
Fresh fruits and veggies from the farmers market is a favorite table setting of mine.
It's affordable and fresh change from flowers! This setting is from

On the World Market site, you can design your own table setting with their inventory.
They have a nice variety of patterns and colors!

What's in Store for October...

I've decided to do a monthly post for new items added to the store. I realize that I am just getting around to posting October pics when this month is almost over! Sorry for the procrastination... hopefully, I will get it together for November. But, I'm not making any promises!

 Clinique Cheron framed poster (SOLD)....perfect for the animal lover!

Small vintage folding chair. I was tempted to paint
this piece but loved the charm of the chippy finish.

Vintage mirror from the 70-80s...antique gold color

Mid-century gold white drinking glasses (set of 7).
Also, Mack Truck Bulldog figurine Limited Edition (SOLD)...
great gift for a Georgia Bulldog Fan!

 Collection of glass decanters, glasses, etc. Time to stock the bar cart for the holidays!

Asian bird prints with carved wood frames. I went to an estate sale where the previous owner had beautiful Asian collectible vintage pieces. I also have a few brass vases/planters, vintage paper fan, etc. that are currently for sale in my space.

Anticipation on the island....

Check out this 90's home on St. Simon's Island in Georgia. It's the new site of the 2017 HGTV Dream Home which is currently being renovated. I love that HGTV is now buying existing properties and updating the structures instead of building new construction. Below is a preview of work in progress...

It features a pool in the backyard. Looks like great things are in store for this island house. I can't wait to see the big reveal in January. Stay tuned because I am planning on posting pics of the final product.
