Diy Roman Shades

On my weekly trip to the thrift shop i found some bolts of fabric.
Each bolt had four to six yards of fabric. With the cost of fabric 
this was a great bargain. I came home with three of them. I really
didn't plan on changing the kitchen roman shades, but i thought
this fabric would look better in the kitchen. Brighter!! With a little
practice they are easy to make. You can save money by making your
own. If i didn't get this fabric for $5.00 i wouldn't have changed
the drop cloth shade. I love this tutorial from Imparting Grace.
You can find it Here

I think the kitchen looks brighter now! It takes a little time to get it just the way you want it, but it's worth it. I used the drop cloth shade for my pattern. It saved a lot of time. I had this done in one hour.

Before drop cloth shade. I still like this shade!!!


The tutorial calls for fabric glue, but i think it makes the fabric stiff. I sew instead. 


It's a really nice fabric.


It's a chilly fall day today!! Something yummy is cooking on the stove for lunch!!
I'll show you the recipe soon!!!

                                                        Have a great day!!!

Halloween Tablescape

Are you having a Halloween get together at your place this year!!
This is an inexpensive tablescape. I am using items i already have 
plus a few supplies from the dollar store. For very little money
you can jazz up your table for Halloween. This would be great
for a fall party also. This is my very favorite thing to do. I love 
to experiment with tablescapes. Add...Take Away... That's the
fun part!! It's always exciting to see what you can come up with.
It doesn't always work out the way you want it to. If it does that's
a good thing. You can see my favorite fall tablescape that I put together

I started with my galvanized tray as my centerpiece. I filled it with lots of goodies! I searched
around for some of my old silver pieces to use.

 Decorating layer by layer. Watch out for the fly!!!

 Scary spider treat bags filled with popcorn and tied with Halloween ribbon.

The kids will like the lollipops!!!

                                                                       Have a great day!!!!!

A little Fall In The Office

I put some fall touches in my office. I spend so much time in this little cozy room that i 
had to add some fall touches. Sometimes me, and hubby have dinner in here too! Right
on our dinner trays, and watch tv.  I love small cozy rooms!! 

 I bought this very old table at an estate sale. It's a drop leaf table. It's really big when you open it.
It seats six. I love the rich color, and it's on wheels too.

 Another old camera that i bought at a yard sale. There are three huge pine cones in the bowl.
I am not sure what they are made of, but they are really heavy!!

 Love my old books.

 I wish i lived here:)))

Picture driving down this pretty snow covered road! 

 I want to live here too!!! 

                                            Have a great day!

Fall Touches In The Living Room

Fall colors can really warm things up! A colorful throw..... some pretty
accent pillows, and a few fall accessories can really add warmth to a room!
One of the best things about having a white sofa is having the option to change
the decor for the seasons. I want my living room to be warm and cozy. Fall is the
season to celebrate leaves, pumpkins, and cooler temps.

Adding some color with accent pillows.

I love a big vase of dried hydrangeas. I changed my lamps too. I found them at the thrift shop
several months ago. I knew i would use them for the fall season.

I filled my big dough bowl with green apples.

 Rustic chandelier. I am giving you a little tour around the room.

Starburst mirrors.

Right below the starburst mirrors is this bench. I filled the basket with old books. That's
about it!!! Not too much, but enough to make me happy:))))

                                                           Have a great day!!!
