Black & White and Fall All Over

Hello, dear friends.  Happy Sunday.  I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.

I think that I'm nesting.  Every Fall, I find myself spending a lot more time at Homegoods and on Pinterest.

One of the first things that I pull out when beginning my indoor Fall decorating is two gifts that my dear friend, Kate the Great gave me a couple of years ago.  I cherish them both because every time I glance at them, I think of Kate. 

I love mixing black and white, especially if it is the beautiful MacKenzie-Childs, with my traditional Fall decor.  So, while pinning the other day, I picked the best to share with you today.

I adore tassels and Kate gave me this one.

And this darling pumpkin was given to me from KTG too.

I used a black and white bow on my Fall wreath last year.

Is black and white check part of your Fall decor?

Until next time...

Mad About Mercury Glass

Hello, dear friends.  TGIF!  The other night, I enjoyed another fabulous evening with my book club buds.  This group of ladies appreciates a hardy laugh and a glass of vino as much as a good book.  It was held at a beautiful antique home on the water.  I felt like I was on a movie set.


We read and discussed Orphan Train.  Everyone enjoyed it very much.

In my continuous quest in my search for the perfect Fall table setting, I found myself falling in love.  Don't get nervous - I'm not going to pull a Brangelina move.  I found myself enthralled with mercury glass.  I think I may be reverting back to my childhood.  I used to adore things that were shiny and shimmery.

I just think that mercury glass gives the table just enough sparkle and elegance. 

Wouldn't these be cute at each table setting?

Love times three!

I spent the day yesterday on a pilgrimage in search of mercury glass pumpkins.   After combing through practically every Homegoods and Marshalls in Massachusetts,  mission accomplished. 


I will share my photos with you next week.  In the meantime, I hope that your weekend is full of sparkle.

Until next time...
