How's everyone doing on this beautiful fall day? We have a bit of wind but the temperatures are wonderful. I have to say I've enjoyed this fall more than any other. Maybe it's because of all the extreme heat we had through the summer, maybe it's because I've tried to take time to enjoy the smaller things in life before they slip away.
Let's take care of a bit of business before moving onto the post of the day. It's come to my attention many of you have had trouble leaving comments or are having a silly pop up occur asking "Do you want to run or move mplayer.setup.exe (682KB) from install optimum installer.com". I've done a bit of research and this is a download for you to be able to watch movies. I don't believe it will harm your computer, I recommend checking it out and when in doubt always click no until you know for sure. I'm not quite sure why it's popping up on my blog, I've put a shout out to my computer guy to see if he can enlighten me and hopefully get it resolved.
OK, onto some fun stuff. This week has been crazy crazy around here. Shipments have been rolling in daily for the shop, that means a lot of unpacking, checking items over and getting them priced and the most fun part putting together displays. The Holiday Open House is going to be so much fun this year. With all that going on I haven't had a chance to put together a table, I searched the archives and ran across Pumpkin Paul Harvey, I put together last year and didn't get posted. Do you see a pattern here? Hmmmm taking tons of pictures and never putting them together... I think I need to get a little more organized.
With Halloween around the corner I chose the black and gold table cloth to help ground all the different textures.
Layering things up always adds more interest. Starting with a place mat I then added a woven charger, moving on up with a white plate, and for more texture a small grapevine wreath. Grapevine wreaths aren't just for doors or walls, use them in a tablescape for added interest. With the addition of the brown acorn plate followed by a leaf plate, topped off with what else but a ghost pumpkin.
I encourage everyone
to find what makes
you happy and useful
Embrace it and
make it work
Until next time....
