Happy Halloween


On Hallowe’en the thing you must do

Is pretend that nothing can frighten you

And if somethin’ scares you and you want to run

Just let on like it’s Hallowe’en fun.


Happy Halloween Y’all ….

May it be filled with Safety & Fun.. Hugs, Debbie

Tablescape Thursday … Chicken Ware


Hey Everyone .. It’s been a while .. I know I’ve been such a slacker here in blogland. Hopefully I have kicked that sickness that has had me on deaths door for over a month. On my return back I didn’t want to do a post about all the stuff that has happened since my last post .. I’ll share those details later. I wanted to jump right back in on a couple of my favorite parties.. Tablescape Thursday & Foodie Friday.


This is our table from last month.. The day I had put it together I was feeling really good .. but afterwards things went down hill for me and this stayed set up for 3 weeks. Lucky for me though just before packing things up..  it was perfect setting for me to snap a few shots of some peppers a friend sent me. Aren’t those peppers beautiful.. They were grown by a great friend of mine Kristin .. who has the greenestestestest thumb around.


  • Sunflowers .. Hobby Lobby
  • Rooster Vase .. Fred’s
  • Candles .. Target
  • Wooden Candles Holders.. Sprayed white .. Goodwill find


  • Gold Napkins .. Bought those along with other colors for .99 cents a pound at this awesome place in Covington called OHCO .. Twice a year they have a sale .. everything is by the pound for 99 cents. I ended up with 10 sets of 8 in 6 different colors for .99 cents. DEAL DEAL DEAL!
  • Ceramic Weave Napkin Rings.. Goodwill
  • Placemat .. Wal-Mart
  • Flatware .. Oneida


  • Chicken Ware .. David Carter Brown Collections .. “On The Farm” … Goodwill
  • Brown Dinner Plate .. Naturals by Culinary Arts .. Kroger
  • Green Dinner Plate .. Goodwill 


  • The Green dinnerware shown on this one .. is also Naturals by Culinary Arts. I didn’t realize I didn’t have a photo of this one chicken until I started loading the photos .. and those other green ones were packed away.


This next one is my favorite of the set.




  • Green Stemware .. Goodwill


  • Rooster Glassware .. Found these at Kroger on clearance .. for 3.25 for set of 8.


What’s for dinner? Cornbread.. Hot and fresh outta the skillet. Yum ..


With that cornbread …


Fresh butter beans from Suzie’s garden and some of those canned tomatoes I put up earlier in the summer.


Dessert … Homemade Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream .. made by my sweet husband.

Here a few pics of those beautiful Peppers Kristin grew..


There were yellow ones.. red ones.. green ones.. purple ones.. and orange ones.


Those oranges ones .. the Habaneras .. those we don’t eat lol but I do love their beauty.


Are Y’all ready for Fall… I can’t wait to play catch up and see what all I’ve missed this past month.. I know with all you wonderful creative folks.. I’ll be Ooohhh and Ahhhhh like crazy.

Be sure to Visit Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch and Gollum  @ Designs by Gollum for more treats this week.

Met Monday & Thrifty Treasures

It’s Met Monday & Thrifty Treasures time.. What a great way to kick off the week .. and my return back to blogland. For those that missed me.. Thank YOU Thank YOU Thank YOU for the emails and messages. I have been one sick gal I tell ya… I started out with a simple lil ole sore throat that turned into Swine Flu.. then I ended up with Pneumonia. For 18 days straight  I was like the walking dead… I thought for sure my time was up. Now all that’s left is a lil hacking cough.. but all is good.

I’m sharing a few things I picked up before all that sickness and a finished project I teased y’all with before going awol on ya.

On my last Met Monday post .. I shared with y’all this cookie jar. I had planned on sending this one off to Goodwill, but decided I’d try a lil chalkboard paint on it.


Taped off the area I didn’t want chalkboard paint on .. and viola .. Finished jar on the right. Also on the right is a candle stand that was being used to hold a birdcage and it suffered a crash on the fireplace..

With a little Gorilla Glue .. yeah that’s all I had in the house.. and a fresh coat of flat black .. it’s good as new again.


When I saw this next piece at Goodwill for $2.74 I knew it would be perfect to replace the clay candle stand as the birdcages new stand. Sprayed it black .. and of course I didn’t get a picture of it after I added the gloss black.. but trust me .. it’s darling. And that Rocking Horse in the background .. he’s in the middle of a morph .. so look for him in an upcoming post.


I found these small pumpkins and gourds at Dollar General for .99 a bag and the small pumpkins with the leaves and flowers for .99 ea.


Arranged them in the birdcage..


My Sweet Husband gathered up some of my fall stuff from outta the garage.. that basket has been Morphed so many times.. I can’t even count.


Finished basket..


I love this little scarecrow pumpkin .. He lights up!


Isn’t he just the cutest.. So Fall!

I didn’t have enough to do the front and back of the basket the same .. so I started adding these jack-o-lanterns.. which will be perfect for Halloween .. all I have to do is just turn the basket around.

Next .. time to toss out the daisies ..


Ahhhh Welcome Fall!
