Sunday Side Table

In keeping with my goal of really decking out the halls this year, I'm trying to decorate one area each day until I "get finished"-
whatever that means!

Today I only got my side table decorated and used my favorite runner.   I did do some shopping today and I've go a rib roast in the oven for my guys.  I still need to set the table, so I'm decorating in small bites this year.     I'm glad to get another little area done although I will probably tweak it a few more times.

Are you a tweaker or do you just place things once?

Early Start

I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet but since it seems late this year I thought I better get an early start.  I'm even going to try and put up two trees this year...something I haven't done in the past few years because we have spent Christmas in Florida.

It will be nice to celebrate the season at home so I'm going
 to really deck the halls this year!

Enjoy your weekend.

Let it Snow!

The first snow has arrived and the weathermen are predicting one to three inches.
The only thing that is 
blooming now is my cyclamen.  

I'm thankful for a warm home to enjoy the first snowfall from my kitchen window. 

I've cooked a pot of gumbo and my hubbie is making kale soup.  I love snowdays!

Stay warm!

Last week we were enjoying the perfect fall weather in our backyard.   My flowers were all blooming again and the leaves were starting to turn.  The wind was calm and the temperature was perfect and then it happened...

Serendipity in our own backyard...
I love when that happens!

Enjoy your weekend!

Chihuly and the Denver Botanical Gardens

We love visiting Colorado when it's scorching hot here in Oklahoma.  Breckenridge is one of our favorite places to spend our vacations for many reasons. 
I adore all the flowers throughout town.   The hanging baskets are the prettiest!

While we were there we took a day trip and revisited 
the  Denver Botanical Gardens
 to see the Chihuly Exhibits. 
 Breathtaking displays might be an understatement!

Obviously they don't have to worry about hail like we do in Oklahoma because the exhibits are outside and located
throughout the gardens.  

It would be hard to pick a favorite exhibit but I think the glass displays in the water had to be the 
most impressive and my favorite.

I'll be quiet and just let you enjoy a 
"walk" through the gardens.

If you are in the Denver area you really should put the Botanical Gardens on your places to visit!
