New Tablescape

Time to switch out the place settings.  I like to do Bees and Sunflower deco this time of year.  Here's what I came up with for my end of summer tablescape. 

I took this one at night.  Got the cookie jar centerpiece and plates at TJ Maxx last weekend.

The plate under the cookie jar is an estate sale find.

The "candle holders" are a couple of my grandmother's sherbet dishes with floating candles.

Round placemats, napkins & tablecloth from Kohl's at 50% & 70% off plus a 30% discount.

Added some wine glasses.  These are my grandmother's, too.

The following were taken during the day.  I added some silverware.

Okay, I guess that's enough.  Thanks for visiting!  I'll be joining this week:

Cindy's Show and Tell Friday (on 7/23)
The Tablescaper Summer Sundays (on 7/25)

Carruth Garden Sculpture Contest

I sent in a few pictures to the Garden Smiles website for a contest they're having on the best showcase of their garden stones in individual gardens:

Mr. Froggy looks happy by the gaillardia.

Mr. Garden Smiles himself:

St. Francis of Assisi appropiately displayed among the snapdragons.

Okay, then just had to throw in a few other pics of the garden.

Today I'm joining The House in the Roses for Cielo's Show Off Your Cottage Monday.  Come visit!

Garage Sale Finds and the Fourth of July

Enjoyed the company of good friends over the Fourth

I had fun with Mr. V. a couple of weeks ago garage and estate sale-ing.  Picked up some beautiful china pieces at what I was told would be and believe it was the cleanest garage sale I've ever been to.

Enjoy your day!
