Kitchen Table Tree

I bought this metal tree at a yard sale this past summer. It was silver and rusted so I spray painted it lime green. I was going to make some initial ornaments for it, but found these adorable ones at Hobby Lobby for only 50 cents each (they were half off) and bought some to represent the first letter of each family member's name (me, my husband, our son, and our 2 dogs). They are so perfect since they are red and lime green with polka dots. Hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and are having a great day today. No shopping for me today...staying at home and doing more decorating and some much needed cleaning!

I'm Back!

I can't believe my last post was on Oct. 7th! No reason, just get busy with life and don't feel like posting, ya know? I wanted to show y'all my new love - my white pedestal kitchen table. I love it! I have been wanting one for a long time and found it in a shop for $59 which I thought was pretty cheap. It is an old one that has been painted. I am planning on sanding it some to distress it more. I am using the same chairs I have had for several years. I made some new curtains out of a red paisley and a red and white checked fabric from Joanns with some polka dot ribbon as the seam between the 2 fabrics. You know me - gotta have my red! Another change I have made in here is the white hutch. I'll talk about it another day and show you more pics of it. Enjoy the rest of your day!
