It's a Pumpkin Spice kind of

day; my little one has been enamored with Disney movies lately so I actually had some free time here and there so I finally got to work on my Thanksgiving Day centerpiece.

A bit shabby, a bit vintage, and oh sooo glittery (is that a word?)

Can you smell the pumpkin spice coffee? yummmm......

With our selling the house, I've been regulated to the kitchen counter and boxes to work out of. A 60% off paper mache pumpkin from Hobby Lobby was transformed with vintage book paper, and walnut ink stain and LOTS of Modge Podge.



Here is a full shot of the pumpkin:

The tag says 'give thanks' which and the little wooden piece shaped like a house came as a freebie from the lovely Kim who I just ordered some other wood from also. Please check out her website. The paper roses were from the wedding isle and I lightly stained them and glittered them; the wood acorns I did the same stain and glittered their tops; the chenille trim and vintage velvet trim are a lovely shade of taupe and are pinned with a vintage rhinestone earring in lovely shades of bronze.

Hope you love this as much as I do!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Talk soon, Kris

What wonders to be found...

on a stunning fall day in Greenville. It was absolutely gorgeous, 70's and the most spectacular tree colors I've seen since I've moved South. I love, love, love this time of year.

Isn't this reindeer lovely! I wish I could get the palest shade of pink to show up. It just wouldn't work with my camera skills or lack thereof! I think she must be from the 40's-50's based on the rhinestone's and gilding.

My other purchase is this sweet tiny creamer--LOVE! I think she is from the 40's also.

I got this tablecloth a month or so ago to put on my formal dining room table for the house showings. This goes beautifully with the cream, pale green, and pink color scheme.
I got this from an Etsy Seller.

I bought a few other things but haven't photographed them yet. Well, it's time for a movie with the family. I got 'Up' at Target yesterday. We are having to watch every Disney and Pixar movie ever made! LOL!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend,

talk soon, Kris

She turned 2!

I can't believe my little one is 2 and boy have we moved into those throw down tantrums! whoooo..they can be quite the scene--dramatic actress in the making here in the Pare' house hold :)

As you can see Disney reigns in the DVD section of the videos and our love of the week was Nemo! Dory the fish fell over from the heat in the top pic!

LOL! Pink is our favorite color--we'll see once we move into our new house.

Have a great weekend!
