Time has been my enemy lately and so I offer you a very simple but colorful tablescape this week.

The chargers came from  Target purchased on our last vacation.

The dinner plate and salad plate came from Wal Mart about 7 years ago as did the glasses.

The leaf plates were just recently purchased and to be honest, I can’t remember where.

Oh Dear, they say the memory is the first thing to go.

The Give Thanks centerpiece was from T J Maxx , and the leaf charger under it, I made several years ago.

This tablescape was on the Kitchen table, which we were going to sell and replace with the more formal round table, but my sweet husband agreed to make the living room into a combination living and dining room, so we will not be selling this table and will be redoing and rearranging the living room.  I am excited to see the finished product, although I will need later to purchase another China  Cabinet.

Happy Tablescape Thursday.

We are off to the Vet…keep reading for winners of giveaway

at vets 

Roy brought Dozer home last night with a nail on one foot that he caught in something and has almost pull off his paw.  He is a very sensitive little fellow and of course, I can only look at it from a distance.

He is limping and he constantly licks it, so Dozer and I are off to the Vet this morning.  Roy doesn’t get off until tomorrow and this need immediate attention.

Dozer is Roy’s dog, he goes to work with Roy and is his constant companion.   BUT LOOK WHO GETS TO TAKE HIM TO VET, WHERE HE WILL EXPERIENCE PAIN……..ME!

I caught them resting…the big black one is Jenny, the little one is Savannah and of course the black and white is Dozer.  Fritz is somewhere else, he is too big to get up here.

What a life!

I am also helping Sharon  get stuff ready for the wedding reception she is doing this Saturday in Houston.  Tomorrow we are headed down there for more supplies to finish up and for me to get a hair cut.  Roy will be home starting tomorrow for a week and so I will be spending most of my time with my sweet husband.

Just trying to explain why I will not be visiting many of you.

See you Thursday at Tablescape Thursday!

SADDEN BY THE KILLINGS AT FORT HOOD

 

PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR THE DEAD AND WOUNDED SOLDIERS.  THEY CAME FROM MANY STATES OF THE COUNTRY, ONE MAY BE FROM YOUR TOWN OR STATE.

IT IS SAD WHEN WE LOSE A SOLDIER IN WAR, AND I GUESS IN A WAY, WHAT HAPPENED AT FORT HOOD IS WAR.  IT APPEARS THIS MAJOR HAD A WAR OF HIS OWN.
