Entry Way Update

I try to update my entry way table 
at least seasonally if not more often
In fact my very first post
was an entry way post here.
 This week I've updated it
with some summery flowers,
a set of vintage Grecian glasses,
vintage lace napkins and a new candle.
 Lighting a candle while I study has been one 
of my little luxuries these past few
years on my journey to becoming a CPA.
I got this candle at One Kings Lane 
from a company out of Arkansas called
I love the willow base and the scent name
Sweet Tea just said summer to me!
Can't wait to try it~
my other favorite right now is
Yankee Candle's
Thanks for stopping by today

Vintage Fourth Clipart

I thought I would re-post an entry from 2011 in case you would enjoy using these pictures 
for your upcoming July 4th weekend!
It is possible to have an inexpensive yet festive party for Fourth of July. This week I'll show you how to plan a perfect patriotic picnic for next weekend's holiday. Today I'm sharing a few vintage clipart pictures I'm using later this week for a patriotic picnic.

I've saved these in a Word file and will be printing them on a sheet of white heavy card stock paper and a sheet of Avery labels.

I can't wait to show you all my creations for a patriotic picnic! Today I'm joining Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Seaside Dining on the Porch

Tonight we are out on the porch for a little
Seaside dining -porch style.
 I originally used these Mark Lake Thompson napkins 
last year
in a table titled Shellabration
 They are back tonight with some new
salad plates from Pottery Barn along
with my new Turquoise Fiestaware dinner plates.
 I mixed in some blue birds and flowers down the center.
 Along with a set of vintage smoke grey glasses.
 Then for some South Carolina fun I added my 
salt and pepper alligators and
matching alligator dessert forks!

 I got the salt and peppers at a great little store on 
King Street in Charleston SC.

Gone Fishing!

Welcome out on the porch for a fun
table I setup for summer~
 Fishing is a hobby that provides hours of relaxation for some,
but for me tablescapes and entertaining provide my relaxation.
 Today I set a table with a combination of vintage and new items.
Yellow, green and aqua mix surprisingly well with the fish
in the Mary Lake Thompson towels.
 Some cheery sunflowers center the table
 I thought these butter pat fish dishes were a whimsical touch
 I also added this trout accent as well.
 Fishing always reminds me of summer vacation
at Lake Barkley, where we will be heading in a few weeks
and I cannot wait!
Saturday is the first day of summer and I hope
you and yours are settling in for some
relaxation and entertaining!
