Fab Pins of the Week!

'Tis the Season to be jolly, fa la la la la la la la la! I can't help but have Christmas carols in my head constantly these days! I know, we haven't even made it to Thanksgiving yet, but I just can't help myself! As you may know, I decorate for Christmas last week. I opted for a basic, neutral pallet. It was gorgeous, but I had to add in some color! My love for plaid took over, and the rest is history! I can't wait to share with you all next week!!

Until then, lets get inspired...

"Vintage" Christmas Car

I have a major addiction to checking the clearance isle every-single-time I'm at Marshalls. I consider this pretty exciting, ask my husband and he probably won't agree (wink!). The last time I checked, I spotted this adorable vintage-looking car! Better yet, it only had a $7 price tag, score! 


Although the copper and black appearance is appealing, it wouldn't match with my Christmas decor enough. So I'm sure you know what I did... I painted it white! Not all of it, just the majority of the exterior. I kept the tires and inside the original finish. I used clay/chalk paint so it dried quick and I could move right on to the next step! I grabbed a bottle brush tree I snagged from the dollar store last year and simply anchored it in place using some red and white bakers twine. It's that simple! I turned this aged car into the perfect "vintage" car to go along with my Christmas decor! Isn't it just darling?

2014 Thanksgiving Tablescape

I am super excited for Thanksgiving this year! We have been so busy with work, extracurricular activities, traveling, school, home projects and more, that it seems we've not got to spend much time with family. I can't wait to spend time with everyone on Thanksgiving! We will be hosting dinner at our house, so it's been fun playing around with my tablescape for this year! I've teamed up with some lovely ladies who are also sharing more tablescape ideas and yummy recipes to try this Thanksgiving, check them out below!



This Fall I've opted for a more natural, simple setting. I got my pumpkins, squash and gourds early in the season, so at this point they are beginning to turn colors and age, but that just brings out the beauty in this tablescape. Adding greenery to the mix also makes the setting more inviting. I added some dried branches to a porcelain pitcher to add some height to the table. More than likely the day before Thanksgiving I will buy some fresh greenery and flowers. You can never go wrong with fresh flowers!



My favorite part about this tablescape is the paper leaves I cut out using my silhouette. Each leaf has a bible verse written on it that relates to being thankful. My plan is to have family read them before we pray. I think this  is a special way to express just how thankful and blessed we all are! Adding meaningful touches to your tablescape will always wow your guests! Also, in the background, on my buffet, you will see 'our thankful tree' I shared last year!








I hope each and every one of you have a very blessed and memorable Thanksgiving this year!
