Table decor for the Patriotic season

In my last post I described that from Memorial day to the 4th of July, I like to decorate in the Patriotic theme for my house. This post will show how I made simple place mats to match the table runner in my previous post. Again this did not take much fabric and was real simple to make. Again I added plastic cups to the decor. I also found a cute glass figure that I use as a center piece. I found this at a flea market for 2 dollars and it adds to my decor perfectly. Also in my cups I have little treats for my guests. Happy decorating!!!

Back at it..thank you to our troops!!!

Once I think I am settled in and have time to blog something comes up and then next thing I know it has been over a month since I have blogged on this site. Well needless to say, I am going to try to keep with it this time (she says with a smirk on her face). We just celebrated Memorial day in honor of all those who gave their lives for our freedom. This brings us to what I call the season of our country which will lead us right into the 4th of July. I will try to show all the little different unique ideas I do to decorate my home during this season. This picture is of the table I have by our front door. It is one of the first things visitors see when they come into my house. I found some patriotic material and sewed a binding around it to make a cute little table runner. I then found a red and blue plastic type cup that I put candy in for a little bit of a treat for our visitors. I of course have my two vases that I use for candles. These decoration are easy and inexpensive to do and adds that red, white and blue splash to your house. Until next time…keep decorating!!!!ImageImageImage 

Finally back to blogging!!!

Hello from my new home in Florida!!! I am unpacked and ready to get back to blogging and doing my home decor ideas!!!

A soft fleece that is so comfortable to use to relax while watching the game. These make wonderful gifts for that football fanatic in your house. Contact me if you want to order one. I offer all teams!! On a side note… I am a Charger fan but just used the Steelers pillow of this post 😉

Summer fun

table runnertable runner 2 table runner3Before I go into the fall season I want to show you just a couple of fun decorating ideas  I did for the summer. I have a table that you see just as you walk into my condo. I like to decorate it with fun items to welcome visitors and to show what time of the year it is. For summer I found this fun piece of material in a scrap bin at my local sewing store. The cost was reduced to just about nothing. I brought it home doubled it and sewed some edging around it to make a nice table runner. Then I set my candles on the table with yellow candles in them. Added some fun glasses I bought again at a reduced priced. Filled them with fun little candies. I set my angel in the middle to add to the setting. There you have it. A fun little way to add some decor to your entry way.
