It'll be a Plaid Plaid Christmas...


(Wasn't that an old Elvis song?)

I'm mixing it up a little this year.
I have a lot of "stuff", and there's no way to use it all,
so I decided to try some new ideas
for Christmas this year.

Choosing to be thankful...

Today I thought about wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving; put up a few appropriate pics and calling it "done". But each time I would do that God would nudge me in another direction. Not about the day of Thanksgiving on the calender, or being "Thankful" for things or even for those people in our lives that we love. I need to share the importance of having a "Thankful Heart". In more cliched terms, having "an attitude of gratitude". And it's something I need to be reminded of.

OK, you're still going to get the pics...

New to me...

I'm frequently the last one to know 
about some amazing item, bargain, or trend.
duh...wow..."isn't that so cool?"

So this post is my latest installment of
"Everyone else may already know... but"
I just had to share this in case there's anyone else out there 
...ah, um...a little uninformed.



this is paper, peeps.

In Praise of Plaid

Plaid is my go-to for Christmas.
I like to keep it simple, and that's what Tartan Plaid gives me.
The Tartan Plaid fabrics bring an instant festive Christmas flair.
Here are a few pics to share the Tartan Love...

Transitional Autumn Tree and a Christmas Home Tour Link Party


Last weekend  I was left to my own devices, like I am every start of deer season. I took advantage of the open garage space and decided I'd try to look through my Christmas tubs and boxes. Over the course of the Fall I've managed to combine a lot of smaller tubs into bigger more heavy duty bins, that stack easier and ultimately take up less space. But the Christmas decor situation is another story...

Orphan Sampler gets a Vintage Frame

This last Spring I found this wonderful cross-stitch Sampler 
and because I still hadn't unpacked my vintage loose frames 
it landed here on my little hallway table.

Thanksgiving Sitting Area

Time for the Thanksgiving Edition 
of the Kitchen Sitting Area!
I realize that many people in Blogland may not be all that interested 
in how my Kitchen Sitting Area changes with the Holidays and Seasons.
 But since you're here, I'm hoping you can enjoy the Seasonal Fun for what it is.

Velvet Pumpkins for a "Timewashed" Give-Away


Becky and I have been wanting to do this Give Away since earlier this Fall,
so we're sharing this opportunity now, still in time 
for you to create your own wonderful 

Fall and Thanksgiving Centerpiece.

Thanksgiving Table-top Vignette


Through my inevitable "process" of tweaking and changing up,
I finally decided on the tabletop vignette in the Dining Room.
Enough of you have confided to me that you're as OCD as I am, 
and cannot... will not, leave something alone.
Not until it's been done to death 
and we reach the place where it "works".

LED Woodsy Tree and Transitioning from Fall to Christmas

So yesterday, the first thing I saw on my bloglist was a sponsored group of bloggers with Christmas Trees. Please don't get me wrong, I understand all about advertising and sponsored posts, and being out front for the seasonal rush for products, sharing ideas and offers. And it's nothing personal, these are a great group of bloggers.  But golly, I'm not ready to have anything Christmas shoved at me just yet. I like to eeeaaaase in to Christmas. I don't like to go "Cold Turkey" and leave out Thanksgiving.
