It's getting close to Thanksgiving so that means it's time to dress up our dining table for the holiday. We don't have a large gathering for Thanksgiving, but I like to set a pretty table with place cards. For holiday gatherings, having place cards just adds a little something special to the . . .
I've admired pine cone wreaths for a while and finally decided to take the time to make one. It was easy to put together and I only ran into one tricky part with the placement of the inner circle of cones.

Some trips to the thrift store are futile, but some days I find a few items that i know I can give new life to. For $2.99, this dough bowl I found at my local Goodwill needed to come home with me!

Is it feeling like fall in your area? Temperatures are just beginning to dip a little in Charleston. I'm still not ready for full on fall decorating.
