Thanksgiving Tradition

I thought I would share this post that I wrote last year about our family tradition.

I sure hope y'all have a very happy Thanksgiving!


I am going to share our Thanksgiving tradition as I show you the dining table I set. I don't have Thanksgiving this year because my family takes turns. I'm talking about my side of the family not Mr. Savvy's. We don't get together with his family at Thanksgiving, but we do have a huge family reunion a few weeks before Christmas with his family. See his family is quite large since he is one of ten children. My family on the other hand is quite small. I am the oldest of three siblings.


Wow Us Wednesdays #197

Happy Thanksgiving week! If y'all are like me you're very busy getting ready for guests and buying groceries for the big day. My son and his family arrive tomorrow so I am getting the guest rooms ready and I still need to run to the store. I sure hope y'all enjoy time with your family and friends this Thanksgiving.

There was a great turnout last week and here are just a few features.

Loving the plaids at Back Porch Musings.


November Mantel

Before the boxes come out next weekend and the Christmas decorating begins I thought I would show you what my mantel has looked like for the past few weeks since I last shared it.


Holiday Decorating in the Bedrooms

Do you decorate your bedrooms for Christmas? Since mine are guest rooms I like to add a little Christmas cheer in each room. It doesn't have to be a lot. It can be as simple as adding a tiny tree or some colorful bedding and pillows. Maybe a basket of ornaments or setting out vintage toys.

Today I am sharing how my guest rooms have been decked out for the holidays with links if you want to see the original posts. I'm starting with 2013 and working backwards to 2010.


Where Did You Get?

I wanted to answer some more questions that I get asked time and time again. The most asked question is where did I get the red checked fabric from or where can I purchase the red checked curtains? Obviously I love them since they are in three rooms of my house and I chuckle when I get asked where is the fabric from because this chick doesn't sew. I really wish I did enjoy sewing, but it makes me break out in a sweat. I'd rather paint.


Ralph Lauren Home at High Point

A few weeks ago I shared the Bramble showroom with you that I toured at the High Point Furniture Market and forgot to share my other favorite designer with you....Ralph Lauren Home. I have always loved his home line. I just wish I could afford it.

 Have fun browsing this collection.


Help Me Choose

I told y'all I want to replace the master bedroom ceiling fan that we do not use with a pretty French style chandelier. There are several that I love and I want to see which one y'all like?


Wow Us Wednesdays #196

Brrrrrrrr, are you feeling it where you are? Over half the country is snowed in and we are way below normal temps in the south, too. According to the forecast we should be hitting 70 by Sunday! Crazy crazy weather.

Since this party is called "Wow" Us Wednesdays I thought I would share a wow of my own today. I was looking at google analytics and noticed traffic coming over from Good Housekeeping so I had to check out their site to see what was going on. Lo and behold they had featured my tabletop Christmas tree from last year in the sun room along with six other bloggers. Very honored to be included.


It Never Hurts to Ask

When I was looking around in the garden center, that Shirley took me to near her home a few weeks ago, I spotted this little stool sitting in a room next to a table. I thought to myself what a cool chippy stool. 

I'm not sure why I'm drawn to old stools, but I am. Especially chippy worn ones.


The Bonus Room Transformation

Y'all just do not know how much better I feel just by getting the STUFF cleaned out of my hoarding bonus room. This is the room over our garage and it is long and narrow with one small window. We don't have a basement so I was putting anything and everything in this room. Finally, I got in the mood to clean it out, after finding out my son, daughter in law, and three grands were coming for Thanksgiving. I needed this push to get this extra bed set up since there isn't a baby bed anymore. There are no more grand babies. They are growing up so quickly.

The first thing you really need to do is go over to THIS POST and refresh your memory of what the before looks like. It isn't pretty and I'll wait for ya. Go on.....

Okay, now that your eyes hurt let's get on to the pretty. All this is just a temporary quick fix. I will be painting the room after the holidays and we will replace the overhead florescent lights with new fixtures.The walls are very banged up and they need to be repaired and painted.


My Cozy Room

It looks like old man winter is making an early appearance throughout most of the country. Even here in the south we are quite cold. I have one room in my home that just feels cozier than the rest.....the sitting room.


My Home's Paint Colors

I have been getting asked a lot lately what some of the wall colors are in my house so today I am doing an updated post of the colors. All paint is by Benjamin Moore paint unless otherwise stated.

Breakfast room and kitchen: French Canvas
