Fashion Friday - blue suede shoesI have always loved colorful shoes! I remember when I was in elememtary school and my mom bought me some sneakers...I got two was yellow and one was pink! Loved them!
My mom just reminded me of another story that began my affinity for colorful shoes....I was only 18 mos old and Santa Claus brought a pair of patent leather red shoes! When I opened the box I grabbed them and held them up to my heart and exclaimed "OH MY PITTY WED SHOES" and that began my love affair with colorful shoe!

DIY Country Wedding Reception in a Barn

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

My daughter and I attended a really cute

DIY Country Wedding Reception

in a barn last weekend and I tried to take as many photos as I could...but alas some of the pics are not so great but I think you will still see the details well enough to enjoy!

They used large mason jars that they painted a yummy blue color. They placed the jars on a round piece of bark that has lace and pearls on it.

Around the main centerpiece they used thrift store mini goblets with small bouquets of fresh flowers in them.

Some of the goblets were spray painted to match the big blue mason jars.

Dessert Table

I fell in love with this side board painted blue and used as a dessert table. You will notice that my friend made a few of her cake plates using my idea that I posted here..IKEA no glue cake plate they are nice a big and hold a lot of goodies! Another fabulous idea they did was to use big glass jars filled with cookies.

Soup and Grilled Cheese Bar

A cute chandelier hung above the soup and mini grilled cheese sandwich bar! Very cute idea! I couldn't get a great picture because so many people were blocking the soup bar area. Another great idea to crate a backdrop using old farm house doors leaned up against the wall with a darling rag banner strung across need for nails, tape or staples!

An old crate made a great pedestal for this pretty urn filled with fresh roses!

This barn is pretty good sized as you can tell looking at the crowd of people but they really made it feel cozy and cute with all their details. The tablecloths were burlap with brown silky blanket trim all around the edge to give it a nice look.

A little trip to the East Coast

Monday, October 13, 2014

Last week my sweet Hubby and I got to fulfill one of my long time dreams!! I have wants to see the east coast during the fall season for 30 years!

Light house on a hill
We will be celebrating our 30 year anniversary next month so when he had the opportunity to go back east for business we decided to lengthen the trip by a couple of days so we could see some sites! We were able to go to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, And Maine...ooooh it was a dream come true!
From tiny little fishing villages and beautiful ocean views to wooded areas covered with leaves that were turning all the fall colors to the downtown hustle and bustle city of Boston... I loved it all!

Fishing villages

Beautiful historic old white churches on almost every corner

Spectacular ocean front homes

My personal favorite...neighborhoods with cottage looking homes surrounded by huge trees in all their glory!

Of course the food was to die for! Fresh seafood!

Cute little towns with fun signage

Bridges with big flower baskets hanging over the side

Spectacular water areas with red gold and greens

Darling antique shops all along the way

I could not get enough of the little towns and the trees!!

Downtown Boston has a place called Mike's pastry where you have to stand in lines to get one of these delectable cannolis!!! So worth the wait!! We had a pistachio Canolli!...I wonder if they could ship me some?!!

It was a fast and furious 3 days filled with sights, sounds and smells that I will never forget! Thanks my love for making my dream come true!

Has anyone else been to these areas? Or maybe you live there now?
