Patriotic BBQ

I love the paper goods from Hester and Cook.  Placemats, table runners, gift enclosures, place cards, greeting cards, you name it, it's all wonderful. 

It was hubbies idea to use the ribbon on the pig's belly. 

Pulled pork, potato salad, baked beans, slaw, cornbread, coconut cream & chocolate pie.  
The New Dawn roses were putting on a show for the holiday. Sharing with Tablescape Thursdays

Rosters, Chicken and Bunnies Oh My!

I love roosters.  I found this really large one at an estate sale.  
The chickens were on display at Dillards.  I picked one up and it didn't have price, but they were Fitz and Floyd.  I picked up the other one and it said $20, which I thought was a great price.  Then I saw that was for both, which was even better.  When they rang them up, the clerk said, they were 50% off.  So this darling pair of Fitz and Floyd chickens was only $10! 

 The lilac wasn't completely open, but I couldn't resist the frangrence or the color.
 The picket fence and the wire pot holder came from the Old Classy Flea in Atlanta.  

Something a little different for Easter!

  Happy Easter to all.  He has risen!

March Birthdays

Between hubby's family and mine, we have a slew of family birthdays in March.  I put together a pizza party to celebrate.  I set the table and was all ready... 

I made place cards for everyone....

Washed the glassware....

Even put out the fancy lights.....

...and we ended up in the kitchen eating pizza around the island!  

It was great fun and an easy clean up.  If you make homemade pizza and have never used a pizza steel, I highly recommend you go buy one immediately!

Green and Natural

This year's inspiration was the placemats from Hester and Cook.  I wanted everything to be simple, using only natural greenery.

As usualy hubby provided all the greenery.  It had to be replaced several times. 
Both geese were purchased on our most recent girl's trip to Atlanta.  

Wishing you and your's a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Giving Thanks

I have decided that fall is my favorite season and I am thankful for it.  I love the colors of fall, the temperatures, the everything!  

The pheasants were a gift from my MIL years ago and I have loved and used them almost every year. Thank you Eileen.   

The place mats are from Hester and Cook.  Every spring they have a warehouse sale and the bargains are amazing and I am soooo thankful for that! 

I was too lazy to put all the pumpkins from my Oct table away, so I just moved them to the drop leaf. 

Pier 1 crackle glasses bought with a coupon, on sale, and my birthday discount!  Thankful again. 
Napkins from Dillards.    
Pee Gee Hydrangeas.  They are beautiful in late summer, but in the fall is when the color really turns lovely. Thankful to hubby for planting my tree. 

I wish all of you a peaceful and loving Thanksgiving.  We are on our annual girl's antiquing trip to Atlanta. Thankful for a group of friends that all love the same thing!  This year we didn't even make it out of Tennessee before we spent over $100 at the Lodge cast iron outlet store!  I am linking up with Susan's Tablescape Thursday
