Pioneer Woman Tablecloth

I recently purchased this beautiful blue floral table lcloth by Pioneer Woman from for under $20.  I went with the largest one available to make sure that I had enough for my dining room table. I thought id it was too large, I could use the excess fabric to make matching napkins. I'm very happy with the print of this tablecloth, I particularly wanted the beautiful blue and white to showcase my yellow and green lemon plates that I purchased from the Dollar Tree last year.  I think the colors and patterns are going to work very well to showcase lots of other dishes and tableware as well. The blue and yellow toile napkins that are on the table are ones that I made from extra scraps of fabric that I had lying around the house. They are not a standard shape and size of napkins but for just me and my family, I don't really care and they worked out just fine.  

Thanksgiving Table 2021

 Here is a look at our table setting for Thanksgiving Day, 2021. This year, we decided to use the orange vintage glassware we purchased from a Goodwill while living in San Antonio, Texas. These glasses our a favorite because they are such a unique color. The green pumpkin was hanging from vines at the back of our yard this year, and we believe it mixed with Zucchini to make this odd, deep green. The green marble wine bottle holder was another Goodwill fine from several years ago. The pretty pumpkin plates are probably the only items not thrifted, and they were purchased several years ago from Walmart.

Dessert Bar

I decided  to create the dessert bar that I've been wanting to do for several years.  It may not be as pink and on the scale that I wanted it, but I am very happy with it and I think it turned out very pretty.  A few months ago I had seen an advertisement about the Unicorn cake being sold at Walmart, so I decide to get that from a birthday and it tasted great and looked great and I am very happy with that as well. I totally recommend the unicorn cake for kids and adults alike.

Vintage Flags

I purchased these vintage style flags at a Habitat For Humanity Restore last year. I love the aged look of the fabric, and I think they work great with the color scheme and a core in my bedroom.

Bathroom Shelf

I purchased this shelf sometime last winter For only 99 cents at a goodwill store.  I thought it would be a good place to store toiletries in my bathroom that I was renovating. The metal on the shelf was a dull gold and the wood was a brown, so I decided to repaint the entire thing in gold from Rustoleum spray paint. I'm very happy with how it looks and it fits perfectly into the corner of my little bathroom so I can put some of my prettiest toiletries on display.  

Apple Pie Recipe

This was my first ever attempt at making apple pie from scratch, and it came out great!   We have planted three apple trees in our backyard this past year, so hopefully we're going to have many apples for many years to come.  I was happy to find a good apple pie recipe! I baked the Apple pie in this ceramic pie Pan and it came out great, as well.  My table cloth is handmade with fabric that I bought from a fabric store when we were still living in California.  The little peach tea pot is something that was a gift with flowers many years ago. The little coffee sign was a Dollar Tree purchase, and the grape vase was a thrift store item.
