Changing Your Look

I recently purchased this tray from ebay to be adding to my home... I had purchased this tray before my trip to Toledo, but When I went to the thrift store that Barb took me to I found that one that I just love for a couple dollars and knew I could always use them both with the fall and Christmas season soon to be arriving... I love tarnished silver accents for Christmas and have several objects to use so.... two was good.... I think this one is very lovely also.... As the seasons change, do you also think of making some changes? I am not talking the fall season will soon be upon us and you set a couple pumpkins here and there. I am talking changing fabrics, such as tablecloths, pillows, towels, china and other changes to make your home appeal for the season. Turning the table... storing pastel colors silks and adding foliage's and leaves... Of course there is nothing like sitting down to a candlelit table and area sparkling with candles and crystal. My personal use of candles will increase greatly in the next few weeks and months... If you haven,t given it much thought, you may want to think about a way to a a dash of drama to your home... I also know allot of us are trying to keep our budgets in check... This is why vintage and used loved items work out so very wonderful for me.... with the decision I like change ... or for those who can a spectacular makeover is always a treat. Just small changes however can create a romantic effort. Your treasures can add the charm you may desire and it is always a pleasure to share with friends and family when they arrive... Give your up-coming season change some thought and of course share your changes with your blogging friends. We love to see what your up too.

Oh yes, I have been slowly but surely putting away the lighter pastels in favor for richer colors. Now, I am not an orange person, but I do love the shades of brown. I am also very big on candles, I am actually looking forward to it getting dark earlier.
