Cupcakes, trays and all that good stuff...

Yesterday the little one at home decided we had to habe cupcakes!! And of course- how could I say to that sweet face!!!
So we baked some yummy cupcakes and I got to display them on the three tier shelf I just made!
I can't take credit for the idea-I got my inspiration from Romantic Country Summer 2009 issue.
How much I love that magazine!! Always such great projects and the most beautiful home showcased!!!
So my little princess and I made the sweet treats and I got to use the stand.
It was super easy!!
I found a set of silver plated trays at the thrift store for only 4.99 and I spray painted them with metallic finish spray paint and then found matching glasses for 1.59 also at the thrift store and used liquid nail to glue them on the trays!!
I am going to use it on the tablescape for thanksgiving-maybe for some fresh fruit or more cupcakes!!! Umm.....

Favorite shelf

I just love this little shelf and the pretties I have on it!
I bought the shelf at a garage sale for 1.00 and actually everything on it, is a thrift store find.
I am looking forward to the weekend. Halloween with the kids- trick or treating and I love welcoming all the little ones in the neighborhood and see what they are wearing for halloween.
Halloween is great because it is like kick off to the holiday season!!

Fall colors too...

I love the fall colors, they just don't blend well with pink!
So I do little displays here and there so we can enjoy the fall decor without me having to redo everything!

My mantle

I love finally having a fireplace mantle!
Being able to dress it up for the holidays!!!
But of course modern technology- I have wires to my flat screen all around.
I need to get a larger HDMI wire to stuff it under the cover and thats about the best I can do.
I really don't want to put the surround and cable box on top of the mantle so I need to fix that.
I really wish the Romantic Homes and Romantic Country magazine showed how people LIVE in thier homes!! Let's see thier tvs and family rooms!!!
I love to see pics of peoples homes- maybe why I love reading blogs so much!
So here is a pic of the mantle and some fall decor that goes more with my color scheme. I think some small white lights might look real pretty too.
What do you think?

New path

The joys of owning a home!
Always something that breaks, needs to be painted, repaired- you name it!
For years I have been tackling our front walkway and porch. Hated the paint!!
But after a while I just got tired of trying to remove the paint, so we decided why not paint!!
And what a difference!!!
I love it-only wish we had done it sooner!!

Outside I have some scarecrows, some fall colors, but inside it is very difficult to decorate for halloween as it just doesn't match my stuff!!
So I had a few pink pumpkins I did last year and so this year I am expanding upon that!
I have a pink display in the works on the mantle. When it is finished I will post the pics!
I have a small setup of some fall colors in the foyer, but that has grown some.
