Tablescape Thursday!!

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday!! These are light pink plates. I put white ones under them hoping to show them better. They are very dainty and pretty. The bottle may be a perfume bottle. I found it at an Antique Store in Dothan. The pretty flutes were a gift from my son on Valentine's Day a couple of years ago
I did not use my Silver yet...maybe next week LOL

This beautiful smaller cake plate was about $20 at an Antique store years ago . It is a deep rich burgundy! I ran the lights thru the table for a dramatic effect.
I hope you enjoyed my table! Please go by and visit Susan at and see all the other beautiful tables!
Have a wonderful day!

God Bless the USA!!!! My heart swells with pride and patriotic feelings when I see our flag. I prayed for our country at this moment. So many men and women have served to give us the right to wave our flag! And salute our flag!
These girls did a fantastic job performing with their horses! Great dance routines!!

These kids were getting ready to chase 3 calfs to get the ribbon off of their tail to win prize!

Calfs and Kids everywhere! It was so funny!!!

How bout them Cowboys!!

Bronco Riding!

Bull riding!

More Bronco riding. There was a great turn out and noone was hurt! Even the little girl singing the National Anthem got all the words right!! Hope you had a great weekend!!

Tablescape Thursday!!

I finally get to use those pretty blue glasses I bought!! They fit perfect with the colors!
I really like how it all comes to gether!!

Bill how do I shine this pretty glass? I used hot soap and water and she is still a little dingy. Pretty but not shiney!

Hey Yall!! Welcome to Tablescape Thursday. I have to tell you after seeing Bill's fantastic find of silverware from the Goodwill, I ran over there and found these Amherst Wedgwood Dinner plates. There were 7 dinner plates and 2 salad plates for $10.00!!! The replacement cost is $34.99 each!! I was so excited. Then on the way home my car pulled over to a yard sale and I found the cut glass glasses for 25 cents each. I think it turned out beautiful! What do you think? I've looked forward to this all week!!!

Be sure to visit Susan at and enjoy her tablescape and the others she so graciously allows to be listed from her blog!!
God Bless you and have a great day!!!

These two nephews look like they are up to something!!

My son snuck up on me and gave me a hug and there just happen to be a camera waiting! LOL there were cameras everywhere!!
I just wanted to share 2 of the sweet pictures from our reunion. I keep threatening the kids with a professional family picture but I will take them as I can get them lol. I guess we should all embrace any special moments we get with family!!!
Hope your day was beautiful!

Tablescape Thursday!

it feels great to be back on Tablescape Thursday! Notice the Antique table runner. It has shades of light green in with the beige. It is beautiful!

World's Best Daughter!!

Here is my favorite daughter holding her uncles cat! She is my favorite because she bought me a new laptop computer...okay you got me...she is the only daughter LOL
Here is Coley posing with Elton John's pants. Good grief! Was he a size minus zero??? Her hair is really long she just wears it up because it is hot outside!
Thank you sweetheart for my gift!

God is so Good!

My trip to mama's was great! I was so happy for my mama to have all of her kids and grandkids under one roof. She was very pleased! She also mandated that we do this at least once a year from here on out!
Also, I got the surprise of my life when my daughter presented me with a Pink Dell computer! I am in the process of transferring all of my documents then I will be able to set up the new computer! I am so happy and excited! That girl of mine is a sweetheart!! I will now be able to post my blog pictures from my own computer!
Have a beautiful day!
