I’m in Love. Capital L Love. I shouldn’t even be posting. I should be cleaning. Party this Sunday remember? I’ve been on a rampage to finish (and start) projects to make my house look really, really good. One such project has led to my current emotional affair. I even took pictures on my phone and sent them to people. If it wasn’t raining I’d take it to my neighbors for a play date.

Who doesn’t love cheap gardening advice? I know I’m always looking for ways to get that Fine Gardening/BHG/Martha OMG garden look without having to eat my cow for food (really she’s too cute). I’m not sure where I found this tip, I think it was Fine Gardening magazine. Honestly I read everything so I can’t be sure.

Update : Added better pictures of the mini-quilt
When you have an orange wall it’s easy to decorate for Halloween. Christmas? We’ll see.
I can not get a decent picture of the cloche to save my life. It’s actually a cheese platter from my boys grandma. It’s covering turkey S&P shakers. When you raise turkeys people buy you fake turkeys.
The right side. I got the candle sticks for $1 (for all 3!). I hate the color but it’s low on the list of crap to do at this point. The milk glass dishes both came from garage sales as well as the silver dish.
The plate in the center is a white turkey that came from a garage sale for a dollar (see a pattern here?). Any one else notice my cat slinking in to all these pictures?
The house where I grew up had an amazing huge fireplace with stone mantle. I miss it. The only thing I really don’t like about my house is the lack of fireplace (and the color of the bathroom but I can easily change that). The shelf was $25-ish at Lowes. This part of the display was more costly than the buffet part.
This is blurry but it shows the color of the wall better. I really like the shadows from the bat garland.
The lantern on the left is from Michaels. The little turkey dish, his name is Wilfredo, from Joanns. More of my little pumpkins and the Chicken. He doesn’t have a name, any ideas? He came from a garage sale. He was pink. I like this much better, don’t you?
I’m in love with these little crows from Michael’s. My cat loves to stalk them so I can only put them up high. The candle holder is from Pier 1, got in on clearance last year.
This little guy is on the wall next to the buffet. The shelf is from Hobby Lobby, it was $2.50 with chipping black paint. Guess what color it is. Go on. Guess! Yeah, the old stand by Hammered Copper. In another life I was a belly dancer and this is one of my genie lamps. The spiders were a gift from the boy (ain’t love grand?)
Hope you enjoy part 2!
