How To Decorate Your Christmas Tree

Happy Friday everyone!  We are day 16 into The 24 Days Before Christmas and I’m talking about How To Decorate Your Christmas Tree.  Do you search Pinterest looking for inspiration, find something you love, and then think…how did they do that?  After all the searching and looking, I kinda did my own thing.  Mr. TAL and I put up two trees this year and I wanted to use what we had before I went out and bought everything new.  I made a few updates by buying sticks, bulbs, tree skirts, and garland...

How To Make A Bow Tutorial And Video

How To Make A Bow Tutorial And Video

Happy Wednesday everyone!   As promised, here is my How To Make A Bow Tutorial And Video!  This is only my second tutorial and I'm in much need of some practice but I tried my best not to confuse you.  I angled the camera so that it would look as if you were standing behind me looking over me rather than in front of me.  I once had someone try and show me how to make a bow while standing directly in front of me and I just couldn’t get it so I taught myself.  Yes, I’m self taught and hope that...

Black Friday Sales

Black Friday Sales

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The Black Friday Sales are crazy this year!  I’m getting so many bloggers posting their favorite picks, emails from some of my favorite stores, and suggestions from friends and family.  I thought I’d put together a list of pet products, home products, fashion, and beauty along with promotional codes to use.  I've started my Christmas shopping and bought new wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby's 75% off Christmas sale so I'm covered in that department.  I do love using bags...

Turkey Table

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year and couldn’t wait to put my Turkey Table together to show you!  These dishes were bought a few years ago at Home Goods and I love them because they are nice and big for all the fixings!  It actually took me 3 years to get matching dinner and salad plates but I was patient and kept looking :-).  This table is all about fall colors in shades of blue, caramel, gold, burgundy, rust, orange, and green.  Never be afraid to mix patterns...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m so excited to show you my Pumpkins And Skulls Table this year!  It’s a little bit of spooky, fun, whimsical, shimmery, and striking with the orange and black together.  I used these dinner plates that I found at Home Goods in my Skulls And Spiders Table and included pieces that I’ve purchased over the years and more recent including these oh so cute miniature skull candles I found at TJMaxx in Steubenville, OH!  You guys, I think this is the my favorite TJMaxx!...

Skulls And Spiders Table

Skulls And Spiders Table

Happy Monday everyone!  Today on the blog is my Skulls And Spiders Table which was so fun to put together.  In previous years, I wanted happy and pumpkins.  This year I wanted dramatic and dark so off I went in search of skulls, skeletons, graves, and spiders.  Where did I find it all, you ask?  I was able to find almost everything at Big Lots (they are running a 20% off on all their fall stuff until 9/23).  I made pit stops at Home Goods, Walmart, Dollar General, and Hobby Lobby to complete...

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m starting to see fall decor out in the stores which is giving me all the fall feels!  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I start spring and summer with a bang wanting to be outdoors working on my yard but then I start to crave fall weather abut this time.  I love transition pieces that can transition you from summer to fall without breaking the bank and what better way to do that is to create a Summer To Fall Table!  The table adds color, is already set for...
