Royal Scout and Co.

Are you getting your Christmas list ready? Well I have a fabulous online boutique to introduce to you...Victoria of Royal Scout and Co. “features a unique and stunning collection of Luxe faux fur pillows, throws, and fashion accessories”.


My daughter is modeling the Royal Scout and Co. wrap in MINK …the color is gorgeous and would go with any outfit. The lining of the wrap scarf is warm and perfect for the cold winter days.



The boot cuffs make a stylish statement, by adding a fancy touch to any outfit. Kynli is modeling the Royal Scout boot cuffs in GREY WOLF. They are offered in three different colors.


And one of my favorite things about Royal Scout and Co. is that their products are designed and fabricated here in the USA…in Northern California. So, if you are looking to support small business during the Holidays, let Royal Scout and Co. be a gift source this year.


The boot cuffs are well made, and look amazing with short or tall boots.


And remember, the faux fur pillows and throws would make the perfect accessory for your home, or Christmas gift for a friend :)

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape

Happy November! It’s already November? How did that happen?

I’m excited about the upcoming Holiday season! This is definitely the most wonderful time of the year :)


Although I’m so eager to start decorating for Christmas, I’ve still got a few Thanksgiving posts to share. And today I want to show you how to create an easy-casual Thanksgiving table. I used two hemp linen grainsacks on the table, basic white ironstone dishes, and a simple pumpkin centerpiece.


I used a turkey platter as the base for the centerpiece, then added an heirloom pumpkin and ironstone pitcher full of fresh cut lavender from the garden. To create a rustic, elegant place setting, I used a sprig of lavender and a cinnamon stick tied up with twine on a basic white napkin. Sliding the spoon inside the twine adds a little sparkle :)


And to create a little cozy ambience, I added tea lights to the molds in each bowl. Simple water glasses finish off each place setting…perfect for brunch on Thanksgiving Day :)


The soft, subtle fall colors go well with all the white, don’t you think? What will your Thanksgiving table look like this year? Fancy or casual?


After a year full of tough times, I’m very thankful for family and friends. Thank you for following along here on my blog! You always make my day with sweet words of encouragement!

Pretty Plates for Farmhouse Friday

Happy Farmhouse Friday again! Our theme this month is dishes…which I happen to LOVE :) I love vintage dish storage, setting a table, and collections of dishes…especially plates.

So, I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite ways to use plates during the Fall months.


Over the last few years, I’ve added to my collection of plates. I love ironstone, however, it’s hard to find around here. My sister-friend Amy has given me several pieces of ironstone. I love these little gold trimmed plates paired with large, crazed ironstone plates.


 I love setting a table with mis-matched plates and a simple centerpiece.


  A few colorful branches (from our pasture) and a green pumpkin is an easy, natural way to decorate a table setting for the Fall.


 All shades of white plates, vintage or new, are my favorite plates to collect. We use them everyday for meals, and they “go with” any theme or Holiday for easy table setting :)


 I also display plates in different ways, while they aren’t in use. This galvanized pie rack serves as a great plate display :)




 This makes it easy for guests to grab a plate at the dessert table for self-service…especially with crowded dinners like Thanksgiving.


 Another way to display favorite plates while not in use, is stacking them on shelves or cubbies.





I also have some China from when we got married that I use often. Do you use your good China? If you’re saving it for special occasions, well, it’s that time of year :) 


 For this centerpiece, I just cut some wheat-like weeds from the pasture and used little strawberry corn on each place setting. I like the simplicity :)


 Of course, sometimes, for self-service dining, I just set out stacks of plates on the table…and allow guests to help themselves.


Well, I hope that you’re inspired to get your best dishes and plates out for the most wonderful time of the year! Set a simple table and enjoy dinner with family and friends!

Vintage Corbels

Hi there! How are you? Enjoying nice autumn weather where you are? We are unfortunately having record heat this week…it’s supposed to be 95 degrees today :/

I wanted to share one of my favorite ways of adding some farmhouse style to a newer home…we like to add vintage architectural pieces, such as corbels.


 I shared a few photos of our vintage corbels in our Fall Home Tour Post HERE, and I thought I’d give a few more details about them. We found these extra large corbels at a local antique shop.


 Attaching them to the corners, that is NOT the easy part. My sweet husband was so creative with the process. He used a ladder to hold the corbel in place while he used heavy-duty screws to attach them to the wall and ceiling. I tell you, he can do anything :)


We really like how the corbels turned out. This “alcove” area in our den/kitchen is an odd spot to decorate…and the corbels turned this space into a focal point. It’s a great way to add a little vintage charm to a room.


How do you add vintage charm? Do you use architectural pieces in your decor?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Enjoy your weekend!

Fall Home Tour

Happy Fall y’all! It’s Farmhouse Friday…welcome to our Fall home tour, I’m so glad you’re here :) Come on in…let’s start in the kitchen.


 My style of decorating is vintage country farmhouse…and when the seasons change, I really like to use natural, simple decor. And you wouldn’t believe what I had to go through to get a few branches of colorful leaves :/ Here in Louisiana, it’s hard to find signs of Fall this early in the season.


 I should mention…you will not see ONE pumpkin in our home tour :(  I know! It’s crazy…but, I couldn’t find the Cinderella or white pumpkins. And, I will wait. Until then, check out these cuties! Strawberry corn! Have you ever?? I’m really loving the color :)



 I did, however, find an abundance of these Princess Persimmons :) They are such a lovely soft orange color. I added them here in small vintage ink bottles on our coffee station, and you’ll see them again in the dining room.



 Do you see the large vintage corbels below? Well, we found them at a local shop owned by my friend Terry…and we finally got them attached to the alcove between the dining and family rooms. I do love the way they look :)




 This baking station is a busy area during the Fall season. We will spend a lot of time baking our favorite cookies and pumpkin muffins.





In our family room, I added some pretty colorful leaves here and there. And a favorite French burlap sack serves as a perfect pillow cover. I like to add warmth by layering textures like grainsacks or vintage sheets on our sofas.







 Our dining room is probably my favorite room to decorate. It’s home of the farmtable my husband built, and my chippy blue vintage cabinet full of ironstone.



 Although I do love decorating our home, and making it cozy for the upcoming Holiday season…my true love is my sweet family. We have lots of fun during the cooler weather months together. Outdoor dinners, smores around the fire, and late night movies or morning coffee on the deck…this is what I look forward to most of all :)




 Now, I have a confession to make…I didn’t spend any money on decorating my house for FALL! Except for the apples & strawberry corn, I didn’t purchase anything new. I cut branches from trees. That’s all. So, if you are on a tight budget, and still want to decorate for Fall, just add a few colorful branches and fruit. You’ll be surprised how little pops of autumn colors can cozy up a room :)


Thanks so much for taking a tour through our Fall Home!! I’m so glad you visited here today :)
