Last of Fall and a Sneak Peek~

First, I apologize for lack of posts.  We've had a couple of busy/rough weeks here at our house.  Our youngest had been sick (migraines and sinus/flu), now dad has it, and I am praying I don't get it as I am now in charge of uniforms for 120+ volleyball players at the club.  We also managed to get her room almost complete (we are still working on art/rug?) so I  will show you that soon.  We also redid our Master Closet.  We weeded out and added some great storage from Ikea.  I promise to post pictures of that as well.  But, in the meantime here's a couple fall/Thanksgiving pics and a sneak peek at Christmas (these are from last year).

The last of the fall leaves~

Our Thanksgiving Chalkboard (Hubby says the turkey looks more like the NBC Peacock!)  I never claimed to be an artist!

And, a sneak peek.  Some of the touches in our dining room last year.


Dining Room Chandelier Adorned


Glass Hurricane Filled with Ornaments and Pinecones (the pinecones were dipped in white paint to get the snow covered effect)


Dining Room Tablescape


I am super excited to start decorating the end of next week.  We will be changing some things up this year, as I am going for a  more "natural" look.  Think vines, pinecones, cinnamon sticks, burlap ribbon...

I have missed your posts! Hope everyone stays healthy. I remember those days of club volleyball. The table looks awesome. {yes, you are an artist!}

How cool what you did the the chandelier! Your table looks beautiful too. I like how you did the tablecloth, runner and natural chargers. Beautiful. How exactly do you dip the pinecones in paint for the snow effect? I'm picturing mine would be covered totally in the paint. I think our holiday colors this year are going to be blue, white, silver . . . and red! I don't do red any other time of year, so I can't resist at the holidays.

Beautiful table...and love the fabric on the chair in the corner! That little gold bird is so pretty too! Can't wait to see all your decor this year!
