I continued my glittery theme in the dining room with this centerpiece. The lighting is great in this room, so on sunny days the reflection off the "disco ball"- as we refer to it - is really great. It creates a sparkly light show throughout the room - all over the ceiling and walls. It's beautiful. (The "disco ball" is from Hobby Lobby's Christmas decorations. There were several sizes.)
I hope you enjoy the photos. Have a great weekend.

I seem to like shiny, glittering things these days (and ruffles and sequins - but that's another post). This may seem a little odd for a girl who decorates with rocks, twigs, leaves and old rusty things. But I like the contrast with my earthy decor.
Here are some photos of my mantel. I love these mercury glass votives ($3 Target find).

Earlier in the week I had a small vase of flowers here. When I was taking these photos, I remembered the hydrangeas. (Yes, these are the ones from Lydia's garden.) I have to keep them hidden because Smudge LOVES them and will have them in the floor in no time. I sneak one or two out when she's not around. Anyway I think the hydrangea is just what is needed here.

Here are a few more photos from Saturday.
I love the architectural elements found in barns. Again, incredibly simple and rustic yet elegant and beautiful. The sunlight filtering through the beams is spectacular.

Here are a few photos from my walk. I never left the property, except when I was in the middle of the road.
I'll have more photos throughout the week.
Enjoy your day.

Yesterday afternoon my friend Lydia stopped by and surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of hydrangeas and herbs from her garden. WOW! Lucky me. Both are gorgeous. I've never seen hydrangeas this color. She says she doesn't do anything to them and they are a different color every year.
I tried and tried to capture their beauty but never really succeeded. I kept moving them from room to room trying to capture the best light. Since it was afternoon, the dining room was the winner in the natural lighting department.
The herbs found a nice spot on the counter by the kitchen sink. Love them. I've seen a cat or two checking them out as well.
Enjoy your weekend.

I've been considering a blog for a while now, but for one reason or another just didn't quite get to it. I must be inspired by the beautiful fall day here because here it is!
