As a bonus this week, the Silver-Cleaning Fairy was here for a visit!

Since all of my company is now gone,  just for today I may sit and rest with a cup of tea, and catch up with my reading,  Blog reading of course.

A Gift for YOU and Vintage Vignette

This Vintage Tabletop is in a guest bedroom, which is also quite vintage.  The bed,
dresser and side table are all Antiques, and live along with a few other goodies.
Elements of the arrangement  include a White Birdcage with a rusted peaked roof…We all
seem  afflicted with a  bit of Rust Love.
003


Add layered crocheted pieces, some passed down from family
and some acquired.
015


     Throw some Magnolias and rolled sheet music into the Birdcage.  Tuck in a vintage crocheted piecr or Lace hankie.
019



Hang  a Pearl
Necklace and add a couple of Vintage Bottles   
024


    Don’t forget the Old Wedding Ring Pillow!
007


To complete the arrangement add   Cherished Vintage Family Photos along with a few
Adopted Relatives who need a Good   Home and Someone to Love them.

    All reflected in the Vintage Dresser Mirror, and Voila!

a little GIFT from Me to  You  Please use it in your Art,  and show me what you do with

Here’s the Church, Here’s the Steeple

Oh come, let us worship
and bow down;
Let us kneel before the
LORD our Maker.

Super Fast and Easy Tabletop Floral


This is a Super, Super Easy floral arrangement
made from four floral bunches.
It goes together in minutes, then breaks
apart in minutes to
store away until next season, 
Saving tons of time for all the
Cooking, Cleaning & Laundry that we
Love so Well !!

Since this went together so-o-o-o- Fast,
I forgot to take
pictures, so will do that next time when
 making one of these,
as soon as Thanksgiving is over and
Christmas décor begins.

.....Until next time, Honey

Come Fly With Me

        Before we took off …….

New England, Canada 10-10 064


On the trip to New England and Canada, which included an 11-day cruise which was so cheap inexpensive I can’t even tell you.  If I did you might think I was lying, and I don’t want to get off on the wrong foot.  So, before we took off…..
New England, Canada 10-10 085 

Did I tell you that this trip was only booked 6 days before we left?
New England, Canada 10-10 066 (2)
Anyway,  before we flew off….
New England, Canada 10-10 067

I only had a bare minimum of time to arrange
some Fall florals……

               On top of the Armoire

               Fuss with the Mantel 
fall 013

Take an old grapevine wreath,  a half-price garland and a few gourds, berries,
fall 037
Pumpkins, pinecones and leaves from my stash,
fall 038
and create this
           Wreath for my Front Porch…..
fall 045

On my return,  I might have been tempted to call  it a day,  but it’s my year to host Thanksgiving Day.   My two sisters and I rotate and I expect 25-30 people.  But instead of immediately washing, cleaning and completing my decorating,  I had something more  IMPORTANT  to do.   What could possibly be more important than chores and décor you might ask.  Take a look  to see just what it was that just couldn’t wait.   (It was only on Monday, so it won’t take long to check out.)   Oh well, there’s always next week.
Until next time,  Honey

A Stroll through Quebec City

I was so taken with Quebec City,  I want to share a few of my pictures with you.   It is so stunning  and the Fall color was breathtaking (something usually not seen in my part of  Texas.)
Quebec is one of the oldest cities in North America and the old part of the city still has it old fortified walls.

Although I am fascinated with taking pictures of architectural details, doors,  windows, steeples and such (and  have a lot of them),  I  was really taken by the spirit of the street scenes.

Not sure what was going on in here as the translation is
“skin to skin”.

But,  I do know what was going on in here:
  Fabulous French  Food 
which we filled up on.

Yea!  I have my first follower, Rose of the
Enchanted Rose Studio.  Thanks so much!

Open Letter From a Virgin Blogger

fall 045
WELCOME! 

Dear Fabulous Bloggers,
I have been lurking around for months, totally amazed by your talent, imagination, artistic ability, creativity and ultra-fabulous photography!  You share great friendships and  a sense of community.  After careful consideration (I'm a Libra so there is often a balancing act involved) and some counseling by my new friend Jodie of Everything Vintage,  I have decided to take the plunge.  Not that I have anything special to contribute,  my goal is to participate and have fun!   
 Beware:  It may take me a while to learn all the "thingys and doodads" a blogger is supposed to know.  But rest assured that I will not let my blogging time get in the way of my blog-reading time.


Now here’s a confession: my post title claims to be a Blog Virgin,  but that’s not the absolute truth as I have  “played around”  a little by posting a few entries to a travel blog.... but I haven’t done it lately.   So with that out of the way, here goes……I hope that you enjoy the pictures of Halloween Decorations which were taken last week in Quebec City.
By the way, you can call me “Honey”.
