Fall Decorating at Our Home

I decorated for fall early september. I know it was a bit early but I was anxious for fall. This was actually the first year that I was ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. So before I take it all down and put the christmas decor up I figured I better show you.

I know, I still need the cloth napkins and silverware.

Love my dollar store pumpkins!

Oh and check out my leaf glasses from the dollar store.

Now, let's go into the kitchen. This is at the breakfast nook.

A little ceramic pumpkin showcased on a pedestal.

Yum, coffee and ??? wonder what's in that pumpkin cookie jar??
Maybe some pumpkin cookies!!

From our family to yours......

Happy Fall Y'all!!

Back from Vegas

We just returned from 6 days in Vegas. We officially launched our custom baby & kids rugs at the ABC Baby & Kids Trade Show on 10-10-10 through 10-13-10. Our custom rugs were very well received!! We were even featured in the Sept/Oct issue of Baby & Kids magazine...YIPPEE! That was a pleasant surprise!

Our booth display

This is in the New Product Showcase

Now for some photos from Las vegas strip...
(one word of advice...wear comfortable shoes if you plan on going there!!!)

We met lots of our current retailers and got a lot of new retailers so overall had a great time!

Garage Sale Furniture Makeover

During the summer I shared with you something my daughter bought at a garage sale for her apartment for when she moves out next May. May is when she finished her RN degree so she has been stocking up on stuff for her apartment.

So to recap...this is what she bought and how it looked BEFORE.

Then she painstakingly sanded and sanded, then sanded some more. Then primed it, and painted it.

She chose this stunning aqua & cream waverly fabric to cover the cushion in....but she got busy and never called the upholsterer to do it. Yeah, I know it's probably an easy upholstery job...but we don't sew.

So for her birthday I decided to have it done for her.

Today was her 22nd birthday...so her completed garage sale stool was unveiled today.

And.....She LOVED it!

Happy 22nd Birthday my sweet daughter! Your stool will look fabulous in your new place when you leave the nest!!
